Beschreibung

The regions of Europe have an architectural heritage that is a thousand

years old; today's challenge is to integrate this heritage into

contemporary life in a sustainable way.

From the first, architecture has always aimed to adapt to the

way of life of the society it serves, but few buildings have come

down to us intact and as they were originally designed. Since the

second half of the 19th century the speeding-up of history has

increased the rhythm of change and has led to continual restructuring,

extension and conversion.

These changes have brought about the use of more and more

innovative techniques, based on flexibility and reversibility, but the

weight of materials, the time needed to implement these programmes,

financial constraints and cultural compartmentalisation

have deferred many of these projects and left us with a museum

heritage frozen in time and quite unrelated to the original purpose

of the buildings.

What can be done with buildings looking for new use - a fortress

without an army, a château without a lord, a workshop without

an artisan, a factory without workers, or even an abbey without

monks or a church without a congregation?

The rise of a new national or international style or the creation

of innovative techniques does not necessarily damage the integrity

of a place. Modern techniques and materials, such as glass and

steel, have a transparency, lightness, flexibility and reversibility that

make them highly suitable for integrative undertakings.

The examples presented in this book all demonstrate a desire

to be considered as 'local' projects and to take their place in an

evolutionary interpretation of history. After more than a century of

conflicting debate on the subject of rehabilitation, it seems that the

aims expressed in the Charter of Venice have borne fruit by giving

rise to quality and personalised buildings that themselves are a

contribution to this debate.

Pierre Thiébaut studied architecture in France and in the USA

(where Louis Kahn was one of his professors), and is also a graduate

in planning of the Institut d'Urbanisme de Paris and the Ecole

Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées in Paris. Prior to his present

activity as a writer of articles and books on architectural rehabilitation

and teacher at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture

de Paris La Villette, he was an Architecte des Bâtiments de France

heading the Service Départemental du Patrimoine du Conseil Général

de Seine et Marne.
