25th Annual Fundamentals of Heritage Conservation Summer Program

May 15, 2017

In 2017, the USC School of Architecture will host its 25th annual summer program devoted to the conservation of the historic built environment. The program runs from May 15 – 26.

This intensive program introduces the principles and practice of historic preservation/heritage conservation in the United States and abroad. Classes are taught by noted experts from Southern California and can be taken as individual topic seminars or as a whole series. In addition to examining the history and philosophy of the conservation movement, lectures and field trips to historic sites throughout the Los Angeles area introduce participants to a broad range of legal, economic, aesthetic, and technical issues associated with the documentation, conservation, and interpretation of historic structures, landscapes, and communities. Sites to be visited and studied include the 1924 Frank Lloyd Wright Freeman House, the 1908 Greene & Greene Gamble House, historic downtown Los Angeles, The Getty Conservation Institute, and more!
