Historic Preservation

The Architectural Archives of the University of Pennsylvania preserves the works of more than 400 designers from the 17th century to the present.

There are a wealth of career services opportunities and resources available to Penn Design students, including Individual Advising, Web Resources Tailored for PennDesign, Career Connection Day, Workshops and Panels, and many others.
PennDesign's Center for Research on Preservation and Society studies the relationships between historic preservation and contemporary social dynamics—particularly city planning, economic development, urban design and the interpretation of cultural values.
The Architectural Conservation Laboratory of the Graduate Program in Historic Preservation is devoted to training and research in the conservation of the built environment. This specialized facility provides a unique intellectual environment for those pursuing studies in architectural conservation and the history of building technology.
