DA 2014: Fred Scott

Friday 17th October 2014

Lunchtime in the Octagon, with ICOMOS Ireland

A Conversation with Fred Scott, author of ‘On Altering Architecture’

Free event, open entry

Fred Scott’s tenet is that ‘there is no such thing as conservation’ not because there isn’t, or the need for it, but because it should fundamentally underpin our architectural thought process and design response. As such there should be no need for a separate discipline.

How could this position change our understanding of place ?

Could it develop a new approach to understanding how historic properties can develop a newly imagined or continued sense of place ?

We joined in a lunchtime conversation to respond to the challenge of mainstreaming conservation in architectural education.
