In Reply to: heritage conservation as a thesis topic posted by Pritha on July 07, 2003 at 08:35:30:
i m in my final year too & i too had thought of taking up heritage conservation, restoration as the basis fer my thesis..
but the trouble is... u have to be extremely careful with handling the structure
like see.. firstly... u should know the grade of the building .then u are allowed to use a heritage structure fer adaptive re-use only if the structure isnt a public building ..which means the structure which u shall be including in ur design shall have to be a privately owned structure or site..
secondly... your proposal no matter how hypothetical has to be justified.. becoz every wall ever brick or stone that you propose to retain , move etc has to be justified. u cant jes build a restaurant or a museum or a yoga centre inside ur heritage structure coz u felt like it..
& thirdly..u shall have to get as many drawings as poss of ur structure.. & hey.. u r not allowed to break anything existing..
u are allowed to alter the landscape around the structure to a certain( justified again) extent..
u can always go thru the guidelines set up fer the structures depending on the area u shall be working in..
best luck with ur thesis..
