Saving grace

  • Comment

The conference's themes underscored some of the challenges of conserving/ preserving Modern Movement post-war architecture. A number of issues were carefully outlined in the programme, not necessarily in the snappiest language.

Example: 'How can historical analysis that captures both the ideals of post-war Modernism and the enthusiasm it engendered, and that simultaneously documents its limitations and internal contractions, best serve preservation practice and the public?' I noticed architect Dennis Sharp present, who could surely have put into plainer English a genuine problem: how to deploy design in the rehabilitation of buildings created in a period of rapid industrialisation.
