PR-652A Adaptations and Alterations of Historic Landmarks

3 Credits

Students study the complex issue of changing historic structures and structures within historic districts. New construction, alterations, and additions present preservationists with many challenges, including questions of appropriateness that involve regulatory issues, aesthetics, and preservation philosophy. Adaptive re-use is a related issue, often requiring alterations, but even when it does not change the exterior of a building, the perception of the building can be dramatically changed.
