HISTORIC PRESERVATION PROGRAM'S ANNUAL SHORT-COURSE:
"FROM NEW TOWNS TO OLD TOWNS"
The University of Maryland's Historic Preservation Program and the Clarence Stein Institute at Cornell University presents this year's annual short-course, From New Towns to Old Towns: The Influence of Clarence Stein's Designs Today. The symposium will take place June 4th at the Greenbelt Community Center.
Often called "Garden Cities", the communities designed by architect and planner Clarence Stein have influenced the use of landscape architecture in towns and cities across America. This symposium will examine the history and future of these iconic communities. Researchers, architects, planners, preservationists, residents and non-profit groups from Clarence Stein communities across the country will be on hand to discuss preservation strategies, with a focus on sustainability and smart growth for the 21st century.
Supported by major funding from the Clarence Stein Institute at Cornell University, and co-sponsored by the School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation, the event is free and open to the public. For more information or to register, visit Preservation Short-Course, or contact Tom Hardej.
