Title: Smart adaptation. Modernistic heritage for sustainability of the future


Chair: Prof. Izabela Mironowicz

Faculty of Architecture, Gdańsk University of Technology and Faculty of Architecture, RWTH Aachen University


2018 was the European Cultural Heritage Year under the theme of  „Sharing Heritage”. Key actors in this context are cities and towns  which provide important assets to the built environment. Successful  transformations and adaptive reuse of urban built environment are  vital in the context of developing more innovative urban ecosystems.  These days there is a vibrant debate about values and future of post  war modernistic structures across Europe. This session will focus on  possible use and adaptation of existing post-war urban structures in  Europe and adaptive reuse of the building stock of this kind. The  session will also elaborate the notion and values of modernity in  the past and today.
