Problematic Heritage

The problematic heritage conference was conceived with the goal to widen the perspectives of heritage protection in Hungary. In the first block a series of interventions were presented focusing on the use of contemporary tools in architecture, to give a wider view and good examples to follow. We were focusing on good interventions from Central Europe. In the second block architects and curators from Central Europe presented selected projects of interest that reveal problematic aspects of the special architectural heritage of the 20th century in Central Europe. Theoretical discussions analysed the possibilities of use and protection of the modern and socialist architecture.
