The intent of this course is to develop a general understanding of how to investigate historic buildings; including the analysis the existing conditions of a building?s materials and systems. We will then examine the interaction between the building and the outside forces acting on it. Finally we will evaluate and develop methods for restoring buildings. To achieve these goals, students will develop and reinforce knowledge of: buildings, building materials and systems (cladding, structural, HVAC, MEP), investigation and analysis, and repair materials and methods. This course will focus on materials and building types introduced in the 20th century.
