NYU London

Sponsored by the Urban Design and Architecture Studies program of the Art History Department the M.A. program in Historical and Sustainable Architecture is offered in conjunction with The Sir John Soane Museum, the program operates within the framework of NYU London. 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.
