Historic Preservation

The Center for Architectural Conservation conducts a full agenda of research and teaching dedicated to documentation, recording, field survey, material analysis, condition assessment, risk analysis, and the development of new treatments and treatment evaluation of historic structures and sites.

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 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.
