dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines the developments that the green building movement and the preservation movement have made to reach a common goal to pursue a fully sustainable built environment. The green building movement is guided by LEED guidelines, which hold the leading role in sustainable development today. LEED’s achievement can be used to further the preservation movement by following successful process it has created. The National Trust has recently formulated a partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council, which has given preservation a platform in the green building movement. Preservationists need to take full advantage of this opportunity by using LEED’s branding to market preservation as the main sustainable development tool. This will also be an opportunity to adapt preservation’s Standards to become more widely applicable under the direction of the USGBC and broaden preservation in the 21st century.
