IHBC / IfA; Lecture by Julian Harrap, Neues Museum refurbishment, Berlin


IHBC London Branch and IfA London Group

Lecture by Julian Harrap, Neues Museum refurbishment, Berlin

Tuesday, 24 January 2012 at The Gallery, 75 Cowcross Street, EC1M 6EL

TIME – 6.00pm for 6.30pm start; £5.00: pay on the day

 Those of you who attended the London Branch Day Conference on 5 October will recall Julian’s presentation on his work with David Chipperfield Architects on the Neues Museum project which has won seven international awards. Time did not allow Julian to expand on the conservation approach taken, so we have invited him to explain in more detail the archaeological restoration which followed the guidelines in the Charter of Venice; respecting the historical structure in its different states of preservation. The restoration and repair of the existing was driven by the idea that the original structure should be emphasised in its spatial context and original materiality – the new reflects the old without imitating it.

 Julian Harrap’s architectural practice has developed a particular knowledge and understanding of the design, technology and materials employed in the conservation of historic buildings and landscapes. He advises grant-giving agencies such as the HLF and has undertaken work for the National Trust, English Heritage, Parish Churches and Charitable Bodies.
