Historic Preservation Design Studio

An advanced design studio focused on contemporary preservation issues. Emphasis will be placed on new design and community planning.

Design is an integral aspect of historic preservation. This course aims primarily to develop the student’s critical faculty regarding design in the context of historic preservation; however, an appreciation of design requires an appreciation for the design process, and the challenge of reconciling design and preservation criteria.

Students will explore these ideas through small studio design projects, field trips, and seminars.
