Preserving the Recent Past 3 Conference at USC


  • University of Southern California, School of Architecture Los Angeles, California USA (map)

Co-sponsored by the School of Architecture at the University of Southern California, the National Park Service and the Historic Preservation Education Foundation, this national conference will address the most important issues in the evaluation and preservation of post-World War II historic resources.

For Orange County enthusiasts, attend the day-long tour given by Alan Hess on Saturday, March 16: “Postwar Bonanza: Alan Hess Loves Orange County.” The tour description is: “Fans of the Reyner Banham classic will love this updated version featuring architect, historian, and OC resident Alan Hess! Spend the day touring postwar highlights of this suburban metropolis with visits to: the Crystal Cathedral complex famously described as “a 22-acre shopping center for Jesus Christ” featuring buildings by Richard Neutra, Philip Johnson, and Richard Meier; the master-planned community of Irvine, progenitor of planned communities the country over; the William Pereira-designed UC Irvine campus; and more!”
