The course will introduce some of the key philosophical issues and practical challenges which arise in the use and conservation of concrete and 20th century materials in historic buildings.

Content

Concrete is one of the primary material used in the construction of innumerable 20th century buildings. It is therefore critical to understand the building concrete and other 20th century materials, to examine their issues which arise in the conservation of 20th century buildings. A four-day course is designed to provide an understanding on the conservation and use of concrete and modern materials in a 20th century building. The theory behind various uses of concrete as a building material will be supported by illustrative discussions and practical session at site. This will help illustrate a range of problems in-situ and discuss these issues with experts on concrete, fellow participants and masons working at site. A guided tour of the site will demonstrate how some of the issues and problems of concrete conservation are being addressed at this particular building. Specially designed practical sessions will provide a unique opportunity for participants to work alongside traditional craftspeople and gain hands-on experience of working with concrete and modern materials.

Adaptive Re-use of Historic Buildings

21 January 2019

Venue: INTACH, New Delhi

Aim

The broad aim of the course is to introduce the philosophy and practices of adaptive reuse for historic properties.

Content

This Master class will explore the key issues – what is heritage, importance of heritage properties, significance of their adaptive reuse and how it can be done. The discussions will illustrate the notions of ‘value’ and ‘significance’ associated with historic fabric and the ways in which this can inform the approaches to conservation. It will also discuss the concepts of tangible, intangible and living heritage and debate about the future of the past. The focus of this course will be on identification, documentation and reuse of historic interior spaces and architecture. Some of the key questions that we will collectively address will be:
  • What is a historic interior space?
  • How can historic interiors be modified/upgraded for adaptive reuse without compromising the values and significance of the place?
  • What are the various conservation approaches to address the conversion of historic buildings for contemporary uses?
  • How to address the challenges of conservation economics?
  • What are the challenges of introducing modern facilities and amenities in a historic property?

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this course the participants should –
  • Develop an understanding of the concept of ‘heritage’ and its adaptive reuse.
  • Gain introduction to the notions of value and significance associated with cultural heritage.
  • Develop basic knowledge of the approaches to conservation primarily focused on adaptive reuse of historic interior spaces.
