Conservation is a growing area of work within architecture. As well as creativity and design skills, it requires specialist education and training in conservation to be able to develop in practice the competences required. Architecture is by nature an interdisciplinary field and a specialisation in conservation requires further multidisciplinary knowledge and skills, as well as a collaborative and critical approach. The most difficult aspects in a conservation project are not the resolution of technical problems, but the capacity to make good judgements about the buildings and their settings and to develop a specific intervention criteria that allows to take good project decisions, based on an appropriate understanding of the philosophy of conservation and a scientific analysis of the evidence. Join us for this CPD with Dr Cristina Gonzalez-Longo to explore the challenges of conserving built heritage, the philosophy of conservation and a look at some case studies of Dr Gonzalez-Longo’s work, highlighting the importance of history, design ideas, innovation, scientific approach and care.
