Founded in 1925, the University of Miami is a campus whose first period of significant growth occurred in the 1950s-1960s. As a result, it has an extensive cache of modern-era buildings that require ongoing restoration and retrofitting to meet 21st century needs. A large part of the campus' preservation planning falls to the School of Architecture, which is now also set to launch a Master in Historic Preservation program. This Field Session will consist of a half-day tour of the main Coral Gables campus to be led by faculty from the SofA. The tour will include a visit to the Lowe Art Museum, one of Miami's first art museums, and conclude with a dialogue/ exchange with key faculty members who are involved in preservation projects and tasked with designing the new Historic Preservation program.
