Industrial Heritage: the need for dialogues between disciplines, restoration and architecture

<<< SUMMARY TST 44
Key Words: Industrial Archaeology, Industrial Heritage, Restoration, Architecture.


[ Abstract ]

This text deals with theoretical and methodical issues related to the conservation of industrial heritage. It discusses the disciplinary integration to deal with themes of industrial archaeology and industrial heritage. Then, questions of methodology are analysed and, finally, aspects of restoration and the role of architecture within the articulation of several disciplines are debated. The aim is to draw attention to the need to discuss methodology and reflect on the instruments of restoration to deal with industrial heritage today, mobilizing the theoretical principles in a conscientious manner in order to face the renewed questions that arise in practice. Cultural assets, including those linked to the industrialization process, anchor individuals and social groups in time and space; treating them recklessly results in deformation of elements that carry knowledge and support memorial and symbolic aspects, which can cause problems for both individuals and the community, evidencing the need to act responsibly.
