Building Codes are evolving  to address an expanded view of Health, Safety and Welfare. Where do historic structures fit in this new vision of compliance? Join us at Taliesin West for a conversation with leading experts on both the history of building codes for existing buildings and the future impact of new code changes on historic and existing buildings.
