Course Description

This is an introductory course on the architectural survey and research putting emphasis on the preparation phase of a conservation project. It is practice-based and comprises all the steps of the process; architectural survey, material - damage and chronological analysis, restitution and restoration. After the introduction of basic traditional survey techniques through in-situ practices, each student group starts to work on a historic structure developing a term project including the above-mentioned steps until the end of the semester. The architectural documentation phase accompanies with the research to understand the historical context of the subject using different sources such as historic documents, maps, drawings, engravings, books, photos etc. A detailed survey and analysis process provide fundamental information on the initial construction/repair phases as well as the materials and techniques employed for the subject. The damage mechanisms and problems are diagnosed and proper treatment methods are developed. These proposals might start from very simple interventions and steps up to more complex ones depending on the state of the art and the circumstances.
