New perspectives to save cultural heritage
Altan, M. Orhan

CI PA 2003 XIX th International Symposium, 30 September - 04 October, 2003, Antalya, Turkey
Growth and Yield Research, University of Agricultural
Sciences, Vienna and a private Company in Austria.
A project manager supported by office-staff will coordinate the
project. One institution at Fiji will provide the co-ordination on
site. Each institute will name a team leader who will coordinate
the work within the responsible group and will be the contact to
the project management.
The agenda for the project will follow different phases each
finalised with a presentation of the results of the progress. Final
result of the project is the system, which will be handed over to
an organisation in Fiji, who will use it in future.
Cultural heritage is a part of our identity. What the house is for
the family, villages and cities are for municipal communities.
Buildings and their arrangement form a frame of memory that
just in absence as "home" is felt.
Architecture stands at the intersection of technology, art and
society. It refers to all ranges of the human life - the public like
the private. In that way it cannot be seized per se and by
definition by only one scientific discipline.
Projects like the excursion to Samoa and Fiji show that the
interdisciplinary approach to the built cultural heritage offers
new possibilities for understanding in each subject. Some
construction details, which seem of no use, make sense, if you
understand their ritual or symbolic meaning. Anthropologists,
who often are very concentrated on the people, their customs
and their behaviour, get a new view on the value of architecture
in the life of the people. In that sense the Institute for
Comparative Research in Architecture plans to initiate more
projects with multidisciplinary participation.
