Progress towards the objectives
Objective 5. determination of characteristics to be maintained when subsequent material and spatial layers redefine the space in frame of contemporary interventions.
Classification of the space-configuring elements according to their architectural and environmental value.
Data-tables, drawings with highlight of the elements of various values
The main research in this regard is the research on the role of memory. For this purpose there was a return to an earlier research from the University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe on Spaces of Encounter.
Several projects were written to continue that research, some of them approved without funding, some of them rejected, and some under evaluation.
The research on spatial representation on 3D is included in communication in frame of a COST action (European network) on “Semantic enrichment of 3D city models for sustainable urban development”.
Another part of the research is that on preservation. In this regard the relationship between space and structure was considered. Initially, outgoing from the initial fellowship, the structure considered was that of reinforced concrete, as most of the documented buildings are. But parallels were drawn to buildings with timber structure, and lessons for the local seismic culture, as both of them are skeleton structure, nevertheless timber structures being more earthquake resistant.
That project was published 2010 in a monograph on the Daniel Libeskind research studio, but independently of that it was presented at the ICOMOS scientific symposium on “Finding the spirit of the place”. Also the website of the “Rediscovered space” is included in the website of the project. See also the approach to the “rediscovered green space” at objective 6.
There might be a session on 3D for maintenance of heritage architecture at the STREMAH 2011 conference.
As in the COST action the MoU was signed on the basis of a national funded project to which we cooperated voluntarily, possible contributions from the point of view of architecture were presented, including how elements of architecture and environmental value can be marked in the spaces.
Several publications resulted, and moderation of related sessions.
This objective builds a link to earlier research projects and to projects applied for as a continuation. It is also what it is mentioned in the abstract, quoting Daniel Libeskind, about architecture and space.
Training school in the Netherlands, October 2009 (in frame of the COST action), including also references to ontologies of architectural vocabulary, not just “3D for disaster management”, as the topic of the school was.
Course on modernity (in frame of the doctoral training) which allowed connections between tradition (and traditional materials) and modernity.
