Planning a Conference ...

Before moving last year, I lived and practiced architecture in the Pacific Northwest. While there, I volunteered in the historic preservation community with King County’s 4Culture and Historic Seattle. I am thrilled to partner with these organizations and the Washington State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation (WA DAHP) to host this conference. In 2020, the growing buzz about architectural integrity at preservation conferences and the resulting interest in cross-pollinating ideas on making the eligibility criteria and landmarking process more equitable inspired me to host this conference.

Or, need to pay by check?

Sponsored by ...

The Conference is hosted by K. Kennedy Whiters, Architect and Founder of Beyond Integrity in (X), and sponsored by King County’s 4Culture, Historic Seattle, and the WA State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation.
