Following World War II, the United States and Europe sought to address the dire need for public and affordable housing through new construction. The post-war decades saw the development of many innovative design, construction and social arrangements. This legacy represents an important part of our collective architectural and cultural heritage but its preservation is plagued by many practical and social issues. By bringing together American and International experts, the Fitch Colloquium seeks to create a dialogue about the preservation of these buildings, which are at the intersection of social, physical, cultural and architectural values.

The free colloquium is open to the public and will include expert speakers from the United States, the Netherlands, France, Brazil, Morocco, and more. 8.5 AIA/CEUs can be earned as well.
