5th INTBAU International Annual Event: Milan 5/6 July 2017

The 2017  Milan INTBAU  conference will  investigate  methodologies  of  representation,  communication,  and  valorisation  of  Historic Urban Landscapes. This will include not only cultural heritage, but also placemaking and local identity enhancement.

The  conference  will  promote  holistic  and  multidisciplinary  approaches  to  design,  which  are  adapted  to  meet  the  challenges of tomorrow and support the unique heritage, cultural landscapes, and communities that have been developed  by  local  traditions  around  the  world. 

Participants  will  share  case  studies  and  current  practice  on  the  documentation  of  settlements  that  should  be  preserved—focusing  on  innovative  solutions,  design  challenges  in  placemaking and identity conservation, cultural issues in heritage assessment, and the technical and craft expression of  culture. Critical  to  the  presentation  of  case  studies  and  current  practice  will  be  the  use  of  drawing  as  a  tool  for  design and creativity.

The conference aims to foster an international exchange of research, case studies, and best practice to confront the challenges  of  designing  places,  building  cultural  landscapes  and  enabling  the  development  of  community.  This  conference  also  aims  to  promote  research  on  new  core  knowledge  in  the  field,  and  on  applications  of  this  knowledge that are contributing to our understanding of the evolution of traditional and historical knowledge.
