Master of Science in Historic Preservation

As a graduate student at the University of Texas at Austin, I am pursuing a Master of Science in Historic Preservation with an emphasis in materials conservation and a particular interest in finishes, 20th century materials and wood. I earned a BA in Urban Studies with a concentration in architecture from Barnard College in 2007 and completed a thesis focusing on the controversy behind the removal of Richard Serra's "Tilted Arc" from its site in NYC. My work has included outdoor sculpture condition assessments, treatment and maintenance; historic structure documentation, material analysis and condition assessments; generation of CAD drawings for documentation and construction; and archival research and National Register nominations. I have presented projects at both national and international conferences and am currently working on a thesis studying 20th century site specific wood building materials and the ethics behind their conservation treatments.

Vishal Joshi

Master of Science in Historic Preservation

Vishal is a Master’s student in the Historic Preservation Program. He has a background in architecture and has received his degree from the University of Mumbai in India. His interest in history and conservation is clearly reflected in his undergraduate thesis where he concentrated his study and design on how history, memory and migration can affect, shape and influence today’s dynamic neighbourhoods and in a similar context help preserve its unique way of life.

After receiving his B.Arch. he worked professionally as a junior architect in an international architecture firm, where he assisted in developing designs for villas, community centres, townships and was also responsible for designing brochures/ reports for his clients. His interest in history made him change his course and then he joined a Conservation Architect in Mumbai, where he worked as a senior architect. This leap inspired him to consider Historic Preservation as his future career.

   Jinwon is a monstereous graphic designer, and a camera equipment nerd. He was participated in a Drama club as an actor, art director, and executive director. Based on his background as an architect, he is pursuing architectural journalist/critique to share the essential value of our built environment to the general public. He truly believes that educating the public is top priority to improve our contemporary architecture field as much as tranining talented architects. Thus, he is devoting himself to historical preservation, for learning both the value of historic buildings and the current issues in the reality.

Anna Nau

Teaching Assistant

Ph.D. in Architecture

Anna is a third-year PhD candidate in Architecture and Historic Preservation. Her dissertation, "American Architects and the Transatlantic Origins of Architectural Preservation, 1876-1926," examines how and to what extent American architects engaged in early preservation theory, advocacy, and practice, arguing they played a more significant, or at least complex, role in the promotion and practice of preservation by the 1920s than has been previously acknowledged, and were part of a transatlantic intellectual network of architects concerned with safeguarding historic buildings and sites. 
 
Anna has worked as an architectural historian and architectural conservator with Ford, Powell & Carson Architects and Planners in her hometown of San Antonio for over a decade. Prior to coming to UT, she contributed to numerous conditions assessment reports, historic structure reports, and master plans for historic sites. She also served as a project manager for preservation and conservation projects at the San Antonio Mission churches. Anna served on the writing team for the official UNESCO World Heritage nomination document of the San Antonio Missions, which were inscribed on the World Heritage List in 2015.
 
Anna is an active member of the Association for Preservation Technology (APT), the Society of Architectural Historians (SAH), and the U.S. National Committee of the International Council on Monuments and Sites (US/ICOMOS). She was co-chair for the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Southeast Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians (SESAH) and was a local planning committee member for the 2016 APT Conference, both held in San Antonio.

Stephanie Phillips

Master of Science in Historic Preservation

Stephanie is a 2015 graduate of the Historic Preservation master's program. While at UT, she served as a Coordinator for the Career Services office, Graduate Teaching Assistant for Construction I and Creative Problem Solving, and Graduate Research Assistant for the Architecture & Planning Library. 

Currently, Stephanie is a Senior Historic Preservation Specialist with the City of San Antonio Office of Historic Preservation. Her role facilitates the design review process and contributes to the development of community-based projects centered around the city's many historic resources. Prior to joining the OHP team, Stephanie served as a Project Design Assistant with the State Preservation Board in Austin, primarily in the coordination and execution of the 2016 Exterior Preservation Project of the Texas State Capitol building. During that time, she assessed the condition of over 400 of the Capitol's historic wood windows, monitored project progress in the field, and advocated for the implementation of new technologies into traditional processes, which resulted in the integration of digital modeling and 3D printing technology into the replication of original brass hardware dating to 1888.

In 2016, Stephanie joined the inaugural class of ARCUS leadership fellows, organized by the Preservation50 Coalition. Additionally, she attended the National Trust for Historic Preservation conference in Houston as a Diversity Scholar, and presented original research at the Association for Preservation Technology (APT) conference in San Antonio. She is an active member of Preservation Austin's Education Committee, the Mid Tex Mod chapter of DOCOMOMO US, and Preservation Texas.

In addition to her preservation education at UT, Stephanie holds a BS in Interior Design from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She is continually interested in the countless ways preservation technology, architectural design, and urban planning intersect, and how cultural, political, and socioeconomic factors guide decisions made within the built environment.
