Living memorial and frozen monuments: the role of social practice in memorial sites

Introduction While monuments and memorials are as old as humanity, since the end of 19th century memorials commemorating events and/or individuals of national importance have become essential elements of the landscape. Commemorative plaques, statues, memorials ( Foote & Azaryahu 2007 ) or street names ( Azaryahu 1996a ; Alderman 2003 ; Giraut & Houssay-Holzschuch 2016 ) have a seemingly clear function: by placing a physical reminder in the public space they intend to enhance the recollection and integration of memories related to the subject of the

Role of Surveying During Reconditioning of Monuments

Abstract

Ernő Foerk’s most well-known work in architectural circles is certainly the volume published in the reprint edition, which collects the material of the building surveys conducted by the students of the Hungarian Royal Public Higher Architectural Industrial School between 1912-1942. The introduction to each volume shows that he considered to document the buildings as the main task of the surveys - besides their role in education - and thus to serve the Hungarian culture. Architectural surveying is still one of the most important starting points for monument reconditioning. Ideally, the process of monument reconditioning consists of the following steps: Scientific Research - Pre-planning Technical Studies – Compilation of a Planning Program and Planning - Professional Authority Control (getting of building permission) – Building Construction Work and (Fine Art) Restoration - Maintenance. This paper presents the essential role of surveying in this process.

Facade renovation – replacement and restoration of the panels in a monument protected object

Abstract

The article deals with problems of reconstruction of the facade and the associated problem of replacement or repair of the panels. In conventional buildings it is a smooth operation, but it is problematic in monument-protected objects. In the case of a common building, it is possible to choose any modern panels and simply replace them, but for historical objects we have to follow the claims and the rules of monument protection. In practice, it usually means the impossibility of use of modern panels, but at least a combination of old and modern technologies. Another possible solution to the problem is renovation, or repairs to the original state of the existing panels, of course with respect to the functionality of such panels. The implementation of such repairs must always be based on the technical and historical survey of the condition of the object and the repairs must be professionally designed. Subsequently, corrections are made, during which it is necessary to pay particular attention to observance of the technological procedures, rules and instructions particularly in terms of monument protection. However, the functionality of the works or elements made with regard to the quality of the environment within the building is not negligible. A common problem is the lack of control of technical requirements and functional requirements. Underestimation of the problems then leads to difficult repairs. The article points to the mistakes and problems of one such construction project on a historically protected chateau building.

Utilization of Neglected Monument Buildings

Abstract

The larger part of Pécs’s downtown area – an area that still preserves the structure of the medieval city – is protected either by local or national regulations. Although the street structure within the limits of the city wall have not changed, the cityscape has undergone more transformations, since every architectural era has left its dominant mark in the buildings. In this study I will analyse one of the most important East-West axes of the downtown, and in more specific detail the Király Street with its historically important buildings. I will describe the history of its development, its past and present function, and the changes that this area has undergone up to the present day. In addition to the architectural aspects of these changes, transport, trade, and tourism also play an important role. In this study, I would like to draw attention to the currently vacant, incorrectly used properties and opportunities for their use in the future.
