Event description

Description

The term 'facadism' refers to the practice of maintaining the front of a building whilst stripping the interior architecture and replacing it with something new inside. Should we be so precious about the exterior of historic buildings?  Where do we draw the line, and when can we make room for the new? In this discussion and debate we'll hear both sides of the story, for you to consider how our cityscapes should evolve.
