Sponsored by the Historic Resources Committee and hosted by the Frank
Lloyd Wright Foundation at Taliesin West
What is good and compatible design for additions to historic buildings
and districts? Is compatibility an
objective? Is compatibility a matter of style and tradition, or an exploration
of abstract metaphors? How do we interpret the National Park Service’s

The AIA Taliesin Colloquium will explore issues that are important to the
practice of historic architecture. Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West provides
a retreat atmosphere in a living landmark of American architecture, in a
beautiful natural setting. In addition to the announced speakers, there may be
an additional panelist for the Saturday program, and keynote speaker for the
Friday evening opening session. This is a personal gathering in a relaxed

The Colloquium leaders will include Frederick B. Fisher, FAAR, Vincent
Michael, Ph.D., and Brian Goeken, AICP. Mr. Fisher has designed buildings for
important cultural and institutional sites all over the United States. His
portfolio of projects that insert new buildings into historic environments is
most relevant to the topic at hand. Dr. Michael is an author, Executive Director
of the Global Heritage Fund, holds the John H. Bryan Chair in Historic
Preservation at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and is a Trustee of
the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
Mr. Goeken is Chief of the Technical Preservation Services Division of
the National Park Service. He formerly served as Deputy Commissioner of the
Chicago Department of Planning and Development. The Technical Preservation
Services Division writes, administers, and interprets the “Secretary of the
The program will open with a presentation and reception on Friday
evening, October 18, 2013. The core of the program is presentation and

with the speakers after lunch on Saturday afternoon before the panel wraps up
the colloquium. The Saturday program will conclude with refreshments and an
evening tour of Taliesin West.
