CONSECH20 will focus on urban contexts with divergent geographical, cultural, political, and economic features. Cases studies in Cyprus, Czech Republic, Italy, and The Netherlands will be selected. The aim is to gather a representative selection of architectural styles, materials, structural systems, conservation state, social relevance, etc. Public, municipal and state-owned buildings with social interest built before 1960 will be primarily considered.
The different categories of buildings defined for CONSECH20 are:
- Buildings that have undergone successful past conservation/re-use interventions (good lessons from the past), and
- Buildings in need of conservation/restoration for future use to further develop conservation proposals.
