CPA's annual Fall Forum to explore preservation and sustainability

On October 16, Cincinnati Preservation Association's (CPA) fourteenth annual Fall Forum Lecture and luncheon will address the urgent issue of preserving the historic character of our cities, while also making them more sustainable in the face of climate change.

In "Architecture, Urbanism and Preservation: After the Oil Age in a Time of Global Warming," Michael Lykoudis, dean of the School of Architecture at the University of Notre Dame, will present his holistic approach to solving the massive problems of energy and the environment that he has developed using knowledge gained from history and historic structures.

Lykoudis has directed his own architecture practice since 1983 and has lectured at universities, professional and civic organizations both across the country and abroad.

"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," said Bobbie McTurner, executive director of CPA. "For 14 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."

The noon luncheon will be held in the Hall of Mirrors at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza.

Individual tickets can be purchased for $50, with patron level tickets priced at $70. To purchase tickets or for more information, contact CPA at (513) 721-4506 or by e-mail at

The deadline for registration is October 5.
