AHI Architectural Heritage Intervention

“Contributing to enhancing our heritage, as the way forward for 21 st Century architecture is our raison d’être; to emphasize a diverse, rich vision that necessarily complements the intervention is our mission, and achieving it with reflexive and purposeful efforts is the challenge”.

This project, founded in, and directed since, 2011 by Ramon Calonge, Oriol Cusidó, Marc Manzano and Jordi Portal, architects and members of the Group of Architects for the Defence and Intervention in Architectural Heritage (AADIPA), has, through the years become a platform that includes four actions that are both independent and transversal.
The European Award, a biennial event that brings together and showcases the multiple approaches of intervention in Europe.

The International Biennial, a framework that serves to compare and gain closer insight of quality interventions in architectural heritage in non-European countries.

The digital Archive, a live and open window that provides a panoramic view of interventions in the history of our surroundings.

The Forum, a meeting place where you can participate in on-going debates about the main preoccupations and lines of thought about interventions in architectural heritage in Europe.


Guinea Heritage 2020

Guinea Heritage 2020

PG2020 was created in 2012, with the aim of revitalizing the architectural, urban and landscape heritage of Equatorial Guinea. The country is undergoing a process of redefinition associated with a far-reaching economic and social transformation due to oil production. The indigenous population belongs to the Fang, Bubi, Ndowe, Fernandino and Annobonese cultures, which have been closely linked to their natural territory, developing different habitats and enclaves. Centuries of colonization produced towns and cities, architectures and landscapes that were far removed from local traditions. This colonial legacy is now heritage, too. Due to economic and social transformations, and the change in mentality, both traditional and colonial heritage are stigmatized and very fragile. Knowledge of them is the basis for their appropriation by the various agents involved in all the activities.
