    architecture AND preservation

    Hi Susan:

    I am also going to be graduating soon, from the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada with a degree in Urban Planning. I too am going to be interested in knowing where preservation planning/architecture firms are in the United States and Canada.

    I have searched long and hard for these kinds of firms and I have come across quite a few so far. I think this area is more field-oriented any way, since you have to actually go out and look at buildings. One firm that really sticks out in my mind is a place in New York City called "Building Conservation Associates" and they employ planners, architects, artisans and such. This firm is working on a magnificent New York (Morningside Heights) landmark called the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine.

    B.C.A.'s site is www.bcausa.com/

    There are many others which I will have to get back to you on, I found a great site listing these kinds of firms, but can't think of it at the moment. I'll get it on here as soon as I can find the envelope which I wrote it all down onto!
