The USC School of Architecture will devote several short courses to the conservation of our cultural heritage this summer through its 21st annual Fundamentals of Heritage Conservation program.
 
This intensive two-week program introduces the principles and practice of historic preservation/heritage conservation in the United States. 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 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, the Broadway Historic District, The Getty Conservation Institute and more!
 
Classes may be attended individually, in themed sections, or as a sequence, and can be taken for AIA or AICP continuing education units.**  This course has been designed for students, design professionals, community leaders, preservationists, planners, developers and others seeking a greater understanding of conservation concepts in a contemporary context.
 
This 10-day course can be taken in its entirety ($1250), in a five-day program cluster ($625), or as individual sessions on various topics ($175).
 
Classes will be held in the Gin Wong Conference Center (Harris 101) on the USC campus, unless otherwise noted. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. Classes normally run from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Parking is available on campus for $10 a day and the Expo Line light rail Expo Park/USC station is directly adjacent to the USC campus.
