The postwar period, 1945 through 1980, was important in the development of modern architecture. This era produced buildings that are now old enough and sufficiently significant to warrant thoughtful preservation. This 75-minute course offers insight into the unique challenges of preserving postwar modern architecture, differing significantly from preserving buildings from an earlier period. For modern architecture of the postwar era, significance and quality are subjects of great discussion and the sheer number of buildings to be considered places the onus on selection. This course covers material and functional issues that add to the philosophical and technical complexities of preservation efforts and design interventions.

This course is presented in high definition video and requires a fast internet connection.
