SOLD OUT: Architecture in the Wild: Exploring NOTA’s Architectural History (YUP/Brainery Class)
May 16 @ 6:15 PM - 8:15 PM
Love old buildings but don’t know a Queen Anne from a Dutch Colonial? The Landmark Society’s Young Urban Preservationists (YUPs for short) are taking students out onto the streets to explore Rochester’s architectural history in its natural setting. In this 2-hour outdoor class, students will walk the Neighborhood of the Arts and the East Avenue neighborhoods and learn the names of important architectural styles; some basic architectural terminology; and how to approximately date the buildings so often seen.
Instructors are members of the Young Urban Preservationists, an affiliate group of The Landmark Society of Western New York. The YUPs are an emerging generation of preservationists in the greater Rochester region dedicated to promoting inclusive, modern, and innovative preservation practices to help revitalize communities and our built environment. And we have fun doing it!
