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.

The Forum is a space for open debate with a global and contemporary approach. It is an invitation to architects, historians, or archaeologists, amongst others, to hold an enrichening and enlightening debate on what they define as Heritage in the 21 st Century society, and the actual state of the intervention in it; and how architecture and other agents implicated in the process should behave in
order to set up a framework of good practices.

It is the place where you can share your opinion. In proof of our vocation to propagate, we invite you to participate in the process with your opinions and thoughts related to an issue that is increasingly more important in today’s society.
