Michael Lykoudis will headline CPA's Fall Forum Lecture on urban sustainability

Each fall, the Cincinnati Preservation Association (CPA) convenes community leaders to discuss urban issues as they relate to our built environment.  This year's Fall Forum Lecture will feature Dean Michael Lykoudis from the School of Architecture at the University of Notre Dame to discuss the issue of making cities more sustainable in the face of climate change, while also preserving their historic character.

"For fourteen years, CPA has been able to present to our region's architects, developers, planners, preservationists - and everyone interested in the evolution of our city - the best minds on these topics through our Fall Forum Lecture," said Bobbie McTurner, executive director of the Cincinnati Preservation Association. "We are thrilled to be able to bring Michael Lykoudis to Cincinnati to present his point of view on the compelling components of building a sustainable future."

Dean Lykoudis has worked most of his career on building, studying and promoting traditional architecture and urbanism.  He has served as professor at Notre Dame's nationally acclaimed school of architecture since 1991 and received numerous awards for his teaching. He lectures frequently on topics of sustainability and traditional design.

Dean Lykoudis has also worked as a project designer and architect in Florida, Connecticut. New York, and Greece, and has directed his own practice since 1983.  He is releasing his third book,  Modernity, Modernism and the Other Modern, later this year. 

Dean Lykoudis' lecture at the Fall Forum entitled Architecture, Urbanism & Preservation: After the Oil Age in a Time of Global Warming will offer a solution to the problems of energy and environment. 

The luncheon is scheduled for Friday, October 16, at 12:00pm, in the Hall of Mirrors at the Hilton Netherland Plaza downtown. Tickets are available for $50 (supporter) or $70 (patron - name included in program).  Corporate table sponsorships are also available, as well as, free student tickets for balcony seating. 

Due to limited space, please contact CPA at [email protected] or (513) 721-4506 to reserve your tickets in advance.  Tickets will not be available at the door.
