Design, Symbolism and Conservation of Sacred Historic Interiors – II
Feb 12 – Feb 15 all-day

Page Updated (July 30th, 2018) @ (12:36 pm)

Location: TATA DHAN Academy,

Madurai, Tamil Nadu

12 – 15 February 2018
BACKGROUND
In 2017 INTACH Heritage Academy proposed to host a series of training courses that illustrated the building tradition, design and symbolism employed in the realm of sacred built heritage. The series focuses on three typologies of sacred architecture, namely temples, churches and monasteries. The nature of the sacred architecture is dynamic as it continues to function after many centuries of existence. The aspect of design principles and practice associated with conserving a living heritage that is both, spiritually significant and also nationally important, is not taught to students of conservation and architecture in India leaving them ignorant of this vast building tradition.
AIM
The first workshop in the series focused on the design, symbolism and conservation of historic interiors in churches, chapels and ancillary buildings in Goa. The second in the series will aim to redefine the characteristics and approaches to the conservation of interiors in temple architecture. Temples have a strong historical and social background; moreover many of the temples date back nearly 1st century AD. They contribute to the continuity of ‘living’ heritage for the local communities as well as the population of the nation. Hence the broad aim of the workshop is to understand the symbolism behind the sacred architecture and historic interiors in Madurai and to devise appropriate strategies for their conservation.
OBJECTIVES
A major part of these temples has stone as their primary material not only as a structural basis but also part of sculptures and other decorative elements. It is important then to understand the nature, design and character of the historic interiors and also to explore conservation approaches that are responsible, sensitive and creative for sacred historic spaces. The theory behind understanding the iconography of the structures’ interiors will be supported by illustrative discussions, field visits and practical hands-on sessions. This practical training course will be held at a site representative of the Hindu architecture. This will help demonstrate a range of problems in-situ and discuss these issues with experts, fellow participants and traditional masons, stone carvers, restorers and experts working with the material. The use of different stone material and old traditional building techniques will also be discussed using illustrated examples. A field visit to various sites will demonstrate how some of the issues and problems of conservation are being addressed. In addition to this, a general awareness will be created amongst the participants towards this lesser explored but widely known cultural heritage.
LEARNING OUTCOMES
  • Understanding conservation and management of the sacred sites
  • Learning the traditional and philosophical approaches used in constructing sacred architecture
  • Analyzing the challenges of managing a living ancient Hindu site
  • Study, Use and Conservation of stone as a structural as well as decorative elements in temple architecture
