Dikkie Scipio’s lecture in Nancy

This Thursday, May 11th, 2017 starting from 18.00, Dikkie Scipio will give a public lecture at the Ecole Nationale Supérieur d'Architecture de Nancy about the refurbishment and renovation of historic monumental architecture.

During the lecture “Past structures in present tenses“, Dikkie will discuss how working with listed buildings represents a very specific typology in architecture.

Many theories are developed around how to approach the refurbishment of historic monumental architecture. How to integrate elegantly new additions within a pre-existing situation? Through three different restoration and extension projects by KAAN Architecten, Dikkie Scipio will analyse the practice of implementing monumental buildings with innovative features and the challenge of finding a fair balance between the old and the new.
B30 (The Hague), the Royal Museum of Fine Arts (Antwerp) and the Museum Paleis Het Loo (Apeldoorn) are currently in different stages of completion and offer an extensive overview on this particular topic.
