The Bachelor of Architectural Studies – Conservation & Sustainability program offers a specialization unique among all undergraduate architecture programs in Canada. Since 2009, this stream has focused on the conservation of historic architecture, paired with a study in the principles of sustainable design.

A growing proportion of architectural work – particularly in sustainable design – involves renovations with sustainability upgrades, or the adaptive reuse of existing buildings. Following the Understanding, Planning, and Intervening method set out in the Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Places, students in this program learn to study and assess existing architecture so that they can formulate creative and compatible design solutions for historic built fabrics. Conservation studio projects are founded on strong historical and social understanding, along with deep knowledge of conservation theories.

Benefiting from collaborative course delivery between the School of Architecture and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, students in the BAS Conservation and Sustainability program receive in-depth technical education on integrated building systems, architectural materials and assemblies, green building techniques, and hands-on practice with heritage documentation. Through the study of conservation theory, ethics, and best practices, students also learn to research and analyze existing architecture.

First-year Architecture Students,

There are particular courses associated with your fall and winter terms that are TUTORIALS – and these courses must also be registered in.  Actually, it is not likely that the system will allow you to register in the LECTURE without a TUTORIAL associated with it (or vice versa) which will cause you registration problems.

For all students of the three streams, Design, Conservation and Urbanism in the FALL term:

When you register in your lecture in Art History ARTH 1200 CRN 30260, you must also choose one Tutorial from CRN 30261 to CRN 30270
When you register in your lecture in Architecture ARCN 2106 CRN 30208, you must also choose one Tutorial from CRN 30209 to CRN 30214

For all students of the three streams, Design, Conservation and Urbanism in the WINTER term:

When you register in your lecture in Art History ARTH 1201, you must also choose one Tutorial from CRN 10250 to CRN 10259
