practice integrating the humanistic artistic design scientific and political understandings of the field This course examines the historical evolution of historic preservation reviews theoretical frameworks and issues and explores current modes of practice Emphasis is placed on literacy in the standard preservation works and critical assessment of common preservation concepts In addition to readings and lectures case studies from contemporary practice will form the basis for short assignments Professional ethics are reviewed and debated The instructor s permission is required for any student not registered in the Graduate Program in Historic Preservation Note that the course is organized in two parts the first half on the basics of preservation theory is taught in the fall semester while the second half takes place in the spring semester and engages advanced topics Historic Preservation Studio HSPV 701 201 Mason Wang Hawkes The studio is a practical course in planning architectural urban and regional conservation interventions bringing to bear the wide range of skills and ideas at play in the field of historic preservation Recognizing that historical areas are complex entities where cultural and socio economic realities land use building types and the legal and institutional setting are all closely interrelated the main focus of the studio is understanding the cultural significance of the built environment and the relation of this significance to other economic social political and aesthetic values Through the documentation and analysis of a selected study area studio teams undertake planning exercises for an historical area consult with communities and other stakeholders carry out documentation and historical research and create policies and projects The studio seeks to demonstrate how through careful evaluation of problems and potentials preservation planning can respond to common conflicts between the conservation of cultural and architectural values and the pressure of social forces economic interest and politics The studio focuses on a specific site in need of comprehensive preservation effort most often in Philadelphia proper Students work in teams as well as on individual projects Consultation with local preservation and planning groups community representatives and faculty advisors informs research and analyze the study area helping to define major preservation planning problems and opportunities formulate policies and propose preservation plans and actions Conservation Seminar Wood Masonry HSPV 740 301 Ingraffia Fearon Module 1 Masonry Roy Ingraffia This seminar will offer an in depth study of the conservation of masonry buildings and monuments with a particular focus on American building stone Technical and aesthetic issues will be discussed as they pertain to the understanding required for conservation practice Part 1 will address a broad range of building stone masonry construction technologies and deterioration phenomenon Part 2 will concentrate on conservation methodology as well as past and current approaches for the treatment of stone masonry structures The subject will be examined through published literature and case studies Students will gain practical experience through lab and field exercises and demonstrations The subject matter is relevant to interested students of conservation and preservation architecture landscape architecture architectural history and archaeology Module 2 Wood Andrew Fearon Prior to the twentieth century most structures found in the built environment relied upon wood as a primary material for both structural members and decorative features An understanding of the physical properties as well as the historic application of this organic material provides the basis for formulating solutions for a wide spectrum of conservation issues As the scope of preserving wooden structures and wooden architectural elements is continually broadened new methods and technology available to the conservator together allow for an evolving program one that is dependent upon both consistent review of treatments and more in depth study of craft traditions This course seeks to illustrate and address material problems typically encountered by stewards of wooden cultural heritage among them structural assessment bio deterioration stabilization and replication techniques Through a series of lectures and hands on workshops given by representative professionals from the fields of wood science conservation entomology engineering and archaeology theoretical and practical approaches to retaining wooden materials will be examined with the goal to inform the decision making process of future practicing professionals Conservation of

heritage sites from individual buildings to historic sites to whole landscapes Course material will draw on model approaches to management as well as a series of domestic and international case studies with the goal of understanding the practicalities of site management Particular topics to be examined in greater detail might include conservation policy interpretation tourism or economic development strategies Preservation Economics HSPV 625 001 Rypkema Jan 14 2015 May 12 2015 The primary objective is to prepare the student as a practicing preservationist to understand the language of the development community to make the case through feasibility analysis why a preservation project should be undertaken and to be able to quantify the need for public non profit intervention in the development process A second objective is to acquaint the student with measurements of the economic impact of historic preservation and to critically evaluate economic hardship claims made to regulatory bodies by private owners Topics in Historic Preservation Photography and the City HSPV 638 301 Ammon Jan 14 2015 May 12 2015 This seminar explores the intersecting social and cultural histories of photography and the urban and suburban built environment No prior background in photography is necessary Since its inception in 1839 photography has provided a critical means for documenting change in American cities and suburbs We might characterize the medium s evolution as moving through four major phases 1 celebration of the great structures of the industrial city 2 documentation and attempted reform of the social life of Progressive and New Deal era cities 3 critique of expanding postwar suburbs and sprawl and 4 reflection on change in the post industrial city Each week we will compare two image collections as the basis for our discussion While authorship by individual photographers provides the entry point to many of these conversations our primary focus will be the images portrayal of urban and suburban people structures and space Through our investigations we will explore how photography s dual documentary and aesthetic properties have helped to reflect and transform the city both physically and culturally Memorials Memorialization HSPV 703 302 Mason Lum Jan 14 2015 May 12 2015 The functions meanings images designs and politics of memorials are an urgent issue in contemporary society Memorials and memorialization processes occupy a central place in culture and public space and concentrate some of the most interesting and fraught design artistic and interpretive questions facing designers artists and scholars today This seminar limited to 12 students from a variety of departments will explore discourse and practices of memorialization The focus of our critical inquiry will be the powerful connections between art design memory and culture as embodied and represented in memorials and memorialization processes Particular topics will include controversies regarding tragedy memorials changing discourses around public art and the status of ephemeral popular memorials The course will be led by Randy Mason in collaboration with Ken Lum Professor of Fine Arts Together they and the class will explore the literature from both heritage social science history perspectives and art design perspectives Class sessions may include field trips exercises projects and guest lectures Germantown Futures HSPV 703 301 Wunsch Keim Jan 14 2015 May 12 2015 This seminar studio hybrid explores urgent preservation and planning issues facing Philadelphia s Germantown neighborhood Germantown has the largest concentration of historic buildings and landscapes outside of the city s core But the word concentration is itself misleading beyond the densely built up spine of Germantown Avenue the area is defined by large lots and old trees the very qualities that lured villa builders there 200 years ago and suburban developers ever since Contemporary development pressures are increasing dramatically dealing with them robustly will require clear analyses of historic resource patterns zoning and planning structures and community capacities This course lays the groundwork for that effort merging advocacy with analysis resulting in recommendations for planning and preservation measures to improve the quality of life in Germantown without sacrificing its historic values and character Students from varied PennDesign departments are welcome Faculty for this course will include Aaron Wunsch Laura Keim and several preservation and planning professionals with significant experience in Germantown Conservation
