After many years of preparation, the National Trust’s Facadism Discussion Paper has now been made publicly available as an education resource.
Facadism is defined as the superficial retention of only the exterior face(s) of a building and the demolition of the remainder. In 2018 the National Trust’s Built Environment Committee initiated a revised National Trust policy on Facadism.
The resulting discussion paper highlights the issues of this approach to heritage and provides key examples in Victoria.
