KEEPING IT MODERN: MODERN HERITAGE UNDER PRESSURE

Conservation Planning in the Global South: Cross-regional Perspectives

About the Workshop

Created in 2014, the Keeping It Modern (KIM) program was developed by the Getty Foundation to complement the Getty Conservation Institute’s Conserving Modern Architecture Initiative (CMAI).
 

Architect Aziza Chaouni, Associate Professor at the University of Toronto, and architect Silvio Oksman, Professor at Escola da Cidade in São Paulo, will lead the first "Keeping it Modern: Modern Heritage Under Pressure” (KIMMHUP) workshop in the Sidi Harazem complex. The workshop will showcase in-depth presentations of the Conservation Management Plans of 8 KIM grantees from the Global South, supported by reflections from world leading experts in modern heritage conservation Sheridan Burke, Shikha Jain and Joe Addo. 
 

The workshop will take place over 3 days in the hotel of the Sidi Harazem Bath Complex, designed by Jean-Francois Zevaco in 1960. Key members from the Order of Architects of Morocco, leaders, activists, conservation groups and architects working on the conservation of modern heritage from Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Palestine, Tunisia, and Turkey will attend.
