Senior Capstone: Conservation and Preservation of Public Fountains (Spring-2011 UNST 421/579)
Conservation of public fountains requires an interdisciplinary approach to determine appropriate materials and methods for their preservation. Historical research, documentation, scientific investigation of building materials, water quality, materials testing and maintenance are all performed to determine conservation treatment options. Using an important Portland fountain as a case study, students will learn and apply skills necessary to assess, document and determine possible solutions for the fountain's particular preservation needs.
