Curating Architecture in the Expanded Field of Historic Preservation: 1:1 Models and In Situ Interventions

Contemporary architecture exhibitions might contain solutions to challenges in preserving the built environment. Architects and curators increasingly experiment with alternative materializations of architecture in life-size models, with displaced time-worn building fragments, and with temporary interventions into sites and buildings.
This postdoctoral research project (funded with a FWO fellowship) investigates what approaches and strategies can be learned from these experimental practices to face contemporary problems in preservation.
