We investigate and interpret cultural landscapes as wellsprings of meaning, memory, happiness and belonging.
We honor the ordinary and celebrate the extraordinary as context for enduring preservation and prudent change.
We discover, document, and design in the classroom, the studio, and the field, working with communities and the people who live there.
We negotiate our everyday lives through man-made surroundings that are the setting and substance of human activity.
We engage in education, research, and practice in Colorado, the Rocky Mountain West, and throughout America and the world.
The Center of Preservation Research preserves the past and examines the present to prepare for the future of our cities, suburbs, ranchlands, and even our wildlands- through education, research, and practice.
