What values are associated with heritage structures and landscapes that are allowed to undergo transformation and change?
The Transformation theme seeks to document how the practice of cultural remembrance can be sustained with materials and landscapes that are allowed to undergo active processes of change and transformation. Within this broad area of interest, the work has a particular interest in the way in which a focus on process, rather than permanence, renders the distinction between natural and cultural heritage unworkable, and unsustainable. This theme considers the future dilemmas associated with the management of change by working within two distinct domains of practice: built heritage and transitional landscapes.
Built Heritage Management
Buildings change over time. Keeping a building still requires maintenance. Can heritage allow buildings to change as well?...
This salon to accompany the current Octagon exhibition Cabinets of Consequence will explore how heritage and other related forms of conservation practices (including nuclear waste management) make futures. How do we use material culture to stitch futures from pasts? What do we conserve? What do we get rid of? What do we allow to change? This Salon will be staged as a series of conversations across various themes currently being explored within the Heritage Futures research programme,Event held at Haldane Room, Wilkins Building , Gower Street WC1
