Save Those Buildings

Historic fabric helps more than just walkability

Abstract

WHATEVER STYLES OF ARCHITECTURE you may prefer, there is no denying that fine materials, skilled craftsmanship, and detailed handiwork make a place more interesting. These qualities, which can be found in rare pieces of contemporary architecture, are present in most buildings built before World War II. Old buildings also make walking more meaningful by connecting us to our past, our ancestors, and to the lost institutions that shaped our inherited culture.
