Interpretation and Presentation of Architectural Heritage for budding architects
An International Field Workshop was organised by Chitkara School of Planning and Architecture in collaboration with the Institute for Tourism Studies, Macao, China. The Workshop explored the important theme of ‘Interpretation and Presentation of Architectural Heritage’. The historic and iconic Qila Mubarak at Patiala, a key monument of our region, was chosen as a case study for the fieldwork.
The Workshop was co-ordinated by Ar. Niyati Jigyasu, Associate Professor, CSPA and Dr. Sharif Shams Imon, Director, ITS, Macao and supported by Ms Surabhi Kataria, Assistant Professor, CSPA. The participants comprised of 26 CSPA students pursuing the eighth Semester elective subject of ‘Architectural Conservation’, and 20 students from ITS, Macao.
Six groups each consisting of a mix of both CSPA and ITS students underwent two days of intensive field work in the magnificent complex of Qila Mubarak and explored the possibility of interpretation and site management plan for the complex.
It is important to conserve the historic monuments in India as they are important from the history of India perspective. For this, the architects need to know the various aspects of conserving and such necessities make us organize workshops and field trips for our students.
