Technical Challenges

The technical challenges arising from the ongoing care, maintenance and use of significant built works of the 20th Century will be addressed in this stream.

Papers have been particularly sought on subjects which support the major sub themes of the (Un)Loved Modern conference.

In order to provide useful precedents for others, the papers will focus on one or more of the following aspects:

  • What was originally constructed and how?
  • What went wrong and why?
  • The conservation options, the method selected and its success.

The papers listed below were presented in this stream.
