Tuesday, July 14 – Saturday, August 1, 2015

The USC SchoUSC-Peyton Hall at Wallis Annenberg Center for Performing Artsol of Architecture is pleased to announce its 23rd annual summer program devoted to the conservation of the historic built environment.

This intensive three-week 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 comprehensive 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 will 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 1923 Frank Lloyd Wright Freeman House, the 1908 Greene & Greene Gamble House, Rancho Los Alamitos, historic districts in downtown Los Angeles, The Getty Conservation Institute and more!

This course has been designed for students, design professionals, community leaders, preservationists, planners, developers, and those contemplating a career in conservation, and all who seek a greater understanding of heritage conservation concepts in a contemporary context. Classes may be taken as individual days, in themed clusters or as a sequence, and the entire course can be taken for academic credit. Some classes are eligible for professional continuing education units.
