Heritage Conservation Symposium TOMORROW @ USC

USC Heritage Symposium.jpg

As the LA area continues to sprawl, development starts to go into areas that are traditionally averse to growth. This can cause a rift between low and middle income and developers looking to advance profits and real estate holdings.

The University of Southern California School of Architecture has often led the charge in balancing the two and their annual symposium of conservation is tomorrow.

Expect a star-studded line up of speakers covering hot topics in the world of gentrification and the future of development in our local cities.
