ICOMOS Guidance on Post Trauma Recovery and Reconstruction for World Heritage Cultural Properties document
ICOMOS is pleased to share the ICOMOS Guidance on Post Trauma Recovery and Reconstruction for World Heritage Cultural Properties document.
This document was prepared in response to the request for guidance on reconstruction expressed in the World Heritage Committee decision (Decision 40 COM7) at its 39th session in Bonn, Germany. It was largely developed through the deliberations of an international workshop on reconstruction convened at ICOMOS Headquarters in Paris in September 2016 and sponsored by Kyushu University, Japan.
From 13-15 March, the ICOMOS University Forum kicked off with a pilot workshop addressing “A Contemporary Provocation: Reconstruction as Tools of Future-making”, sponsored by Kyushu University (Japan). Some thirty specialists, both young researchers and senior professionals from around the world, met for discussions on authenticity and reconstruction at ICOMOS International in Paris.
ICOMOS and E.C.C.O. (European Confederation of Conservator-Restorers' Organisations) have agreed to closer collaboration through a Memorandum of Understanding signed on 6 March in Paris.
