Projects and research undertaken by CoPR faculty and students fall along a continuum ranging from discrete historic preservation projects conducted for a community or organization to theoretical research on emerging practices and trends. Our research and projects involve:
- Historic Preservation Documentation: Graphic Documentation, Context Studies, Surveys, and Nominations
- Historic Preservation Design: Design, Planning, Building, and Conservation
- Applied Research
- Academic Scholarship
Historic preservation projects at CoPR often encompass a number of phases over multiple years, perhaps beginning as survey or documentation work, moving on to planning or conservation studies, and resulting in a published paper contributing to professional practice or advancing technology.
