Silver Center 307

100 Washington Square East

 Looking for a future path?  Love old buildings?  Why not make them new again?  NYU’s London-based M.A. Program provides an immersion in adaptive reuse and sustainable building practice. Come learn about the program at our spring open house, featuring presentations about our faculty and curriculum, along with admissions information for 2017-18, and a discussion of career opportunities in the field. Program directors and alumni will be there to discuss the program and answer your questions.

The Master of Arts Degree in Historical and Sustainable Architecture is a nine-month program focusing on the creative reuse of older buildings.  In an era when the demolition of older buildings has been recognized, not just as a loss to the urban fabric but also as a major source of environmental pollution, retaining historic structures and using them for new purposes is increasingly desirable –and profitable.  This program explores innovative ways to reconcile real estate development with historical preservation and environmental protection by recycling existing structures.  The course of study combines academic training and research with experiential learning opportunities, and the program operates within the framework of New York University’s London program.

News From Historic and Sustainable Architecture in London: Snape Maltings Project!

16 Feb

The nine NYUL students on the Masters course on Adaptable Re-use of Historic Buildings have had a unique opportunity to contribute to a real building project.  Part of the beautiful Snape Maltings was converted into a concert hall for Aldeburgh Music in the ‘60’s.  The hall has the finest acoustic in England and is enormously popular with musicians from all over the world.  This was a very early and famous example of the adaptable re-use of an industrial building.  The hall was followed a few years later by the conversion of other buildings into a world class music school.  Recently Aldeburgh Music bought the rest of this large industrial site, and the current question is how to alter the buildings to provide a range of new uses – student rooms with common rooms and bars; rooms for visiting musicians, including big orchestras; recording studios; and even holiday lets.  This project was given to the NYUL students to see what they might come up with – 60,000 sq. ft. of potential space in about eight buildings of varying size and construction.  They visited the site twice, took many photos, and had workshops in one of Aldeburgh Music’s studios and also in a nearby 15th century manor house.  They divided into three teams of three and took on different buildings on the site, and produced a composite Powerpoint presentation of their ideas. Following a very positive review they are currently working together to produce one report for all the derelict buildings.  This will be given to Aldeburgh Music, and it is hoped will help the Trustees to see what might be possible.
