Adaptive Re-use in 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.
