docomomo Switzerland and TSAM Laboratoire des Techniques et de la Sauvegarde de l´Architecture Moderne – ENAC/EPFL are organizing the series of conferences “Project, Histoire, Construction. Nouveaux regards sur le patrimoine récent”, which will take place between 3rd March and 30th May 2016, at Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (Switzerland).
After the interventions of the Professor Ana Tostões, docomomo International Chair, the Architects Lacaton & Vassal and the Professor Véronique Boon, docomomo Belgium and ULB Faculté d´Architecture La Cambre-Horta, docomomo Switzerland and TSAM are pleased to announce the lecture of Martin Boesch, Architect and Professor at l´Accademia di Architettura de Mendrisio, which will be held May 2, 2016, at 18:30 at the ARCHIZOOM – Project Room, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (Switzerland).
“Documenting twentieth-century architectural production through a meticulous material understanding of it and defining strategies for conservation based on appropriate critical and operational instruments: this is the twofold objective shared by the international organisation docomomo and the TSAM EPFL-ENAC Laboratory, which has hosted the association´s Swiss headquarters since autumn 2015.
Project, history, construction. New views on the recent heritage: jointly organised by TSAM and docomomo Switzerland, a first cycle of conferences is intended to restore the multiple potential for preserving the modern built and contemporary heritage, with an approach that lies at the crossroads between history os architecture and the practice of the project in the existing.
Hosted by the Archizoom “Project Room” at the EPFL, the contributions assess the state of an issue that continues to evolve, by taking advantage of a broad and markedly plural network of knowledge.”
