I'm still years away from doing a Master's degree, but I've been checking out some things nonetheless (having a plan keeps me motivated). On several university websites I've seen "historical preservation" mentioned.
Going by that term, it sounds like something I could be very keen on. But what exactly does it entail? I thought it sounded more like a planning issue, involving the clash between urbanization and preservation; to protect nifty old stuff while cities spring up all around them. Yet I see on this forum that it is listed under "Design, Space and Place."
Am I wrong about what historical preservation means? What are the design aspects?
