These trends were according to Jim Garrison, the Arizona State Historic Preservation Officer, as presented at a workshop a couple weeks ago. And to the list...
10 - Acorn street lamps and brick sidewalks - Sure, these didn't occur naturally, but they sure do look old, or do they?
9 - Demolishing the recent past - The old Valley National Bank building on ASU's campus would be an example.
8 - Place making without look at what the actual history was.
7 - Moving from section 106 to section 110 - That's a bureaucratic reference that essentially means moving from reactivity to proactivity.
6 - Combining historic preservation with sustainability
5 - Traditional infill by putting a big touch of the past into new buildings in historic areas.
4 - Heritage/Cultural/Civic Tourism, is in
3 - Historic Districts - Arizona has 159 of these, ranging from nearly 3 to almost 1200 buildings in any given one.
2 - Private property rights are in
1 - Faux is in - "You get a very false appearance with real rock" - a Fiberglass Industry representative
Note: He didn't judge these, just said they were trends. What do y'all think?
