From 5-6 July 2017, the 5th INTBAU International Annual Event will take place in Milan, Italy. The event is organised by the School an the Design Department of Politecnico di Milano and will investigate methodologies of representation, communication and valorisation of Historic Urban Landscape and cultural heritage, but also place making and local identity enhancement.
Participants will share case studies and current practice on the documentation of settlements that should be preserved, focusing on innovative solutions, design challenges in place making and identity conservation, cultural issues in heritage assessment, and the technical and craft expression of culture.
The conference aims to foster an international exchange of research, case studies and best practise to confront the challenges of designing places, building cultural landscapes and enabling the development of community.
Three the topics of the conference:
– Representation, documentation, visualization and communication of cultural heritage;
– Traditional and regional architecture and their qualitative and constructive characters;
– Cultural landscapes, place-making tools.
