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).
