Censo de grupos en sectores prioritarios de la Eurorregión
La plataforma de grupos de investigación de la Eurorregión Galicia-Norte de Portugal surge en el marco de un proyecto desarrollado por la Fundación CEER y financiado por la Consellería de Cultura, Educación e Ordenación Universitaria de la Xunta de Galicia. Su objetivo es impulsar la transferencia de investigación en el Sistema Universitario Gallego y promover la colaboración a ambos lados de la frontera para la realización de proyectos conjuntos.
Para la creación de esta plataforma fueron seleccionados grupos de investigación de la Eurorregión que trabajan en las áreas establecidas por la Estrategia de Especialización Inteligente Transfronteriza (RIS3T) y el Plan de Inversiones Conjuntas de la Eurorregión.
Líneas de trabajo: OBJECTIVES
The general objectives of the work group are those detailed in last year’s report. It is our goal to continue to develop the group’s research endeavours within the vast area of Built Heritage, including very diverse areas, from rehabilitation projects in specific architectonic works to studies geared towards the analysis and definition of intervention methodologies in historical centres, expending urban areas, and territorial and landscape units of patrimonial value.
Furthermore, the field of study also encompasses the domain of interpretation and architectural intervention in areas and archaeological sites, as well as the analysis of interventions in the recent architectural patrimony that are part of the heritage of the Modern Movement.
The main geographical area of study is that of the national territory, with particular emphasis on the north-western region of the Iberian Peninsula. However, bearing in mind existing valuable exchanges with Brazilian and other Latin American universities, the work group considers it to be worthwhile to extend the scope of its research field to other regions in the world where the Portuguese architectural culture has produced works and affirmed its identity.
The different topics described above are organized in three main lines of research:
a) Studies on City and Territorial Heritage;
b) Architectural Rehabilitation Actions in Built Heritage;
c) Atlas of Ways and Ancient Towns of Portugal.
As to the first research line, the patrimony studies to be developed – from the form of the town to the form of waterfront territory – will have the city of Porto as its starting point and may extend to the Douro Valley and the Atlantic coast and the north-western region of the Iberian Peninsula. The general framework of this line of research includes: the importance of industrial and port activities in the development of the city of Porto and the northern region throughout its history; the relations between central and local political powers and mercantile and customs activities; the projects for the improvement of the navigability of the Douro River and the construction of several port infrastructures and other types of industrial works with patrimonial value.
A second area will be referred to - Actions for the Rehabilitation of Architectural Heritage - and seek to critically assess the processes of intervention in old buildings, focusing on the actions, past and ongoing, in several cities (Porto, Évora , Coimbra, Guimarães, etc.), determining relevant characteristics of their projects and works, with emphasis on aspects related to architectural and design solutions and their interrelationship.
The evaluation, expected to be both of quantitative and qualitative nature (using a methodology of Post-Occupancy Evaluation - POE) will tend to determine the merits and demerits, the appropriateness and inappropriateness of technical and conceptual experiences in order to generate data and reviews that eventually could justify the definition of new management and intervention processes on the urban heritage.
In addition, we intend to develop an intervention model in old buildings, taking as case study Porto houses from XVIII to XIX centuries, based on minimally invasive methods, focusing on recovery and rehabilitation of materials and traditional building techniques, adapting it to the requirements of comfort, functional efficiency and sustainability, which should characterize the construction of buildings today.
The third line – Atlas of the ancient routes and cities of Portugal - is still focused on the analysis, systematization and dissemination of the intervention process developed in the territory since the period of Romanization of the Iberian Peninsula, especially in Portugal, until the late nineteenth century. With the work on historical cartography available, but scattered, efforts will provide a reading of the networks roads in Portugal and its relationship with Europe, throughout history.
All research lines have as common goals the organization of exhibitions, publications, seminars and debates on and with the materials that will be analysed and produced, as well as the creation of post-graduate courses in these specific areas of study.
The supervision of doctoral and master’s dissertations and the presentation of papers in conferences are still fundamental objectives of this group and will continue to be the hallmark of the identity of the Architecture, City and Territorial Heritage Research Group.
