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 fall open house, featuring presentations about our faculty and curriculum, along with admissions information for 2017-8, 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.

Garden Architecture - Philosophies of Repair
Miriam Kelly, ARB AABC, Senior Associate Beyer, Blinder, Belle Architects and Planners LLP

The architectural conservation of structures within historic gardens calls for a particularly sensitive approach, but with latitude to explore a broad spectrum of concepts from ruination to renewal. This presentation explores different repair philosophies through two projects on opposite sides of the Atlantic. At Lowther Castle & Gardens in Cumbria, UK, a major project has made the ruined castle, derelict stables and 130 acres of abandoned, seventeenth century gardens accessible to the public for the first time. Closer to home in Pennsylvania, the restoration of the Main Fountain Garden at Longwood Gardens has revitalized the historic heart of one of the most celebrated public gardens in the country. Both projects encompass interesting philosophical, technical and design challenges, and provide a comparison of approaches between the UK and the USA.
Sponsored by the Society of Architectural Historians, New York Metropolitan Chapter, and the NYU M.A. in Historical and Sustainable Architecture.
