BACKGROUND

Recognizing the importance of diverse perspectives and approaches to built heritage conservation, the modern Asian Architecture Network (mAAN) and the Asian Academy for Heritage Management (AAHM) invite undergraduate and postgraduate students from all over the world to submit a poster that conveys the objectives, methods, and outcomes of a conservation project or research work.

This poster competition will be held concurrent to the 7th mAAN conference, entitled Asian Cities — Legacies of Modernity, which will be held from 23 to 25 February 2009 in New Delhi, India and within the overall framework of the AAHM in the sustainable management of heritage resources. The organizers shall attempt to display all the submitted posters during the 7th mAAN conference. Selected entries shall also be published in the conference proceedings.

THEME

The main theme of the project should be focused on the built heritage and the ways of its sustainable use, which cover the current trends on conservation, architecture, urban development and heritage management. The project can be of any scale, from a single building to a cityscape. It may include conservation or adaptive re-use of existing buildings, as well as the introduction of new buildings, if appropriate to the demands of site and programme. It may also include conservation of streetscapes or urban quarters.

Projects should address the following issues:

ELIGIBILITY

– Graduate and post-graduate students from all countries are eligible to participate.
– Submitted projects should be original works which have not been previously published.

FORMAT

Projects should be submitted in the form of a poster. The poster is expected to be the reflection of the entire design project and should contain: graphics, architecture drawings and plans, and texts in order to ensure clarity of project goals, methods and results. There is no prescribed template and participants are advised to demonstrate their creativity in designing the poster.

  1. The project poster should be designed to fit on a single A1-size sheet, horizontal or vertical layout.
  2. Only digital copies of the final poster need to be submitted. Prints of each poster shall be produced by the conference organizers in New Delhi.
