In the framework of the European Year of Cultural Heritage (EYCH), the Architects' Council of Europe (ACE) is organising on Friday 23 November in Leeuwarden (The Netherlands) a public conference on Adaptive Re-Use and Transition of the Built Heritage.
Responsibility for re-imagining our built environment and heritage is shared by many stakeholders: architects, town planners, public authorities, financial institutions, owners and built heritage professionals. This conference will bring them together to discuss:
- the skills, knowledge and competences necessary for quality heritage interventions;
- the design challenges inherent to adaptive re-use and the relationships and dialogue between heritage elements and new architectural interventions;
- the importance of heritage in the definition of a territorial identity and its impacts on the attractiveness of places.
At the final session lessons from the European year will be drawn and stakeholders will present a statement on the adaptive reuse of built heritage as a legacy and follow-up of the year.
