The Education Programme of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture aims to promote broader and deeper awareness among young people of the philosophy and values that underpin the efforts of the Trust. To this end, the programme is developing teaching materials and processes through which the wealth of knowledge and learning accumulated by the Aga Khan Award for Architecture and the Aga Khan Historic Cities Programme will be shared with university and high school students, as well as a broader interested public.
For the pilot phase of the Education Programme now under way, AKTC has partnered with experts to prepare a series of pedagogical outputs. These include teaching packages, lectures on Power Point, MOOCs and curriculum units, some of which are already posted on Archnet. Others will be added as soon as they become available. The Programme is also partnering with educational institutions to generate new elective courses, field schools and workshops, the highlights and/or outputs of which will also be posted as appropriate.
ArCHIAM. “Lecture 10: Adaptive Reuse and Infrastructure.” Part ten of 10 presentations developed for the Aga Khan Trust for Culture
Education Programme, 2018.
In this lecture you will learn about:
planning, design and implementation of contemporary urban provisions within historic settings as a necessary pathway towards their sensitive transition into the future;
urban regeneration programmes as tools for integrated heritage preservation, infrastructural and socio-economic development. These are illustrated through examples from different geographical and cultural contexts, with the aim of offering a comparative understanding of intervention strategies and their impact in both ‘high’ and ‘peripheral’ Islamic traditional settings;
examples of urban regeneration and infrastructural development, through the presentation of the Tabiat Pedestrian Bridge, Iran (AKAA), and the Misfat al-Abriyin Adaptive Reuse, Oman (ArCHIAM).
