Buildings which were once thought of as contemporary and modern are now aging. Design professionals and historic preservation specialists are tasked with renovating, repairing, and assessing the historic significance of buildings from the modern era.
The National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT) and the Getty Conservation Institute are partnering to address these issues. They are holding a three-day course on the preservation and conservation of modern heritage, on May 7-9 at the Getty Center, Los Angeles.
The course brings together preservation experts from around the nation to lead the course. The event will include lectures, field sessions and hands-on lab work. The course will focus on evaluating and understanding common deterioration problems and establishing sound preservation actions.
The course is limited to 25 participants. Registration fees are $500.
