Icomos Convention from Roof War to Roof top
Time & Location
The seventh session of Context, Contrast, Continuity – Heritage Conservation and Urban Development focuses on rooftops and their functions in modern and contemporary architecture.
We will discuss various rooftop variations and their benefits, ranging from (eco) rooftop terraces to structures that provide additional space for housing or solar panels. Which lessons can be migrated from modern architecture to contemporary buildings? And what are the effects of the changing proportions, urban scale, and spirit of place?
Architects Amir Peleg (Tel Aviv) and Stefan Forster (Frankfurt am Main) join architecture historian Ana Tostões, president of Docomomo International, to discuss the different aspects of rooftops.
Context, Contrast, Continuity – Heritage Conservation and Urban Development is an international series of online events, a collaboration of the Liebling Haus - White City Center (Tel Aviv Yafo), the Deutsches Architekturmuseum and the Ernst-May-Gesellschaft (Frankfurt am Main), ICOMOS, and Docomomo Israel – Germany.
