Anthony Tung: Preserving the World's Great Cities

Listen | Part 2, Warsaw

Anthony Tung as been a New York City Landmarks Preservation Commissioner, an instructor on architectural history at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and a visiting professor on international urban preservation at MIT. He has lectured around the world on historic preservation. Preserving the World's Great Cities (Three Rivers Press, 2001) is a detailed socio-cultural portrait of preservation efforts in eighteen cities across the globe and throughout history. He was recently invited by the Louisiana Landmarks Society to speak in New Orleans. Excerpted from that lecture are Anthony Tung's comments on the rebuilding of Venice after the 1966 flood, and Warsaw, after it was leveled by the Nazis in WWII.
