Course Objectives This course introduces architectural restoration and conservation concepts and aims to instill in the students the protectionist approach through the case studies.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Will be able to develop a critical understanding of historic traditions, global culture and diversity in the production of built environment
  • Will be able to develop environmentally and socially responsible architectural strategies at multiple scales
  • Will be able to understand, interpret, and evaluate methods, concepts, and theories in architecture emerging from both research and practice
  • Will be able to present architectural ideas and proposals in visual, written, and oral form through using contemporary computer-based information and communication technologies and media.
  • Will be able to take on responsibility as an individual and as a team member to solve complex problems in the practice of design and construction.
  • Will be able to analyze the restoration process of registered historic buildings during construction.
  • Will be able to differentiate the restoration process from the application of other architectural projects.
Course Description This course aims to identify restoration concept; one of the fields of architecture that defines conscience and principles of conservation. This lessons goals are to be able to do same as done on the market; such as survey taking, drawing techniques of survey, reconstruction and restoration projects, to identify the search techniques for historical building items and terms for reconstruction project, to determine the topics for defining the parts to be preserve and design new additions, to be able to make analysis for historical building projects and be aware of procedures during and after the project phases with examples
