Course Content (Syllabus)
The course deals with the theoretical and methodological issues of analysis, documentation and assessment for interventions of revaluation and reuse of historic structures. As known, such issues require a systematic and interdisciplinary analysis of the specific historical and aesthetic values, which monuments represent. The complexity that characterizes this field of architecture makes it necessary to adopt methods that combine different levels of analysis and express the contemporary theory of restorations. For a deeper understanding of the methods, are presented examples of completed studies and research programs, in greek and international level, which approximate not only the contemporary methodology but also its relationship with practices and applications required. Are also presented examples of international applications, which characterize the evolution of the restoration theory and illustrate the different approaches to the architectural heritage and the contemporary aspects in dealing with it. Students are invited to work in groups, to analyze and evaluate a selected historic building or ensemble in order to express the assessment of its current situation and the frame for the proposal of its re-evaluation and reuse, in accordance with the contemporary theory and practice.
