EAAE – ENHSA NETWORK ON CONSERVATION
Coordinator: Professor Stefano Musso
II° workshop – Faculty of Architecture of the University of Genoa, School of Architecture, Landscape and Civil Engineering University College Dublin
Dublin, Borris, Kilkenny. Ireland – 17-19 September 2009.
This workshop builds on the workshop held in Genoa in 2007. The theme to be addressed is that of “transformation”, acknowledging that what is conserved is no longer what it was before intervention. The workshop is experimental – participants are asked, through the medium of real sites, to reflect on some key issues that impact on conservation/restoration practice and theory and on how these may be explored in teaching. The ambition is to create a discursive atmosphere as a contribution to the reflective papers of the participants.
Four inter-connected themes are put forward for consideration:
Communication from within the field of conservation/restoration outwards
Design/ making a proposition for intervention
Confronting issues of sustainability
Universal access/tensions with conservation ethics
To facilitate creative exploration the sessions of the Workshop will be held at different locations. The working language of the Workshop is English.
The workshop will be chaired by Professor Loughlin Kealy, School of Architecture, Landscape and Civil Engineering – University College Dublin
