SYDNEY HERITAGE TALKS SERIES 2014
AUSTRALIA ICOMOS/DOCOMOMO/AIA NSW CHAPTER
ON FRIDAY 22nd AUGUST 2014
APPROACHES FOR THE CONSERVATION OF TWENTIETH-CENTURY ARCHITECTURAL HERITAGE
THE MADRID DOCUMENT
The Madrid Document was developed by members of the ISC20C during 2011 and has since been internationally circulated for comment. It’s now been translated into a dozen languages, available to download on the ISC20C website: https://icomos-isc20c.org/id13.html
Currently, the Madrid Document refers only to architectural heritage but as a result of comments received during consultation, the ISC20C is broadening its scope to encompass guidelines for all types of heritage places of the Twentieth Century- landscapes and ensembles in particular. ISC20C President Sheridan Burke will explain the Document and the path ahead. Input and participation in this work is welcomed.
But how does the Madrid Document work in practice? Heritage architect Jyoti Somerville has spent almost a decade conserving the Seidler designed Tuck House at Gordon and she will talk about the way in which the Madrid Document can practically apply day by day.
Louise Cox will chair a Q and A session to follow
