Join architect and Professor Edward Diestelkamp for a discussion of the London-based M.A. in Historical and Sustainable Architecture. Prof. Diestelkamp will discuss aspects of the program, explaining and illustrating the objectives of his fall and spring assignments. These are designed to develop practical skills and to provide experience in writing and compiling an illustrated conservation statement on a historic building (fall semester) and developing an illustrated report and design brief for the adaptive reuse of a redundant historic building (spring semester).  This talk will also explore key themes raised by class field trips and case studies of historic buildings that have been adapted to new purposes.

Presented by the NYU M.A. in Historical and Sustainable Architecture, Graduate School of Arts and Science, Department of Art History & Urban Design and Architecture Studies.
