RLICC Newsletter Issue 15, Spring 2015


by Minja Yang, president of the RLICC

The first-year students of this 2014-15 academic year had the privilege to meet Prof. Dr. Arch (IT) Andrea Bruno, President of the RLICC, (1995-2010) and now Honorary President who is renowned internationally as one of the leading conservation architects specialized in contemporary adjunctions to historic buildings, during their November 2014 study tour to Torino. Preceded by visits to Freiburg and Basel, and followed by Biella and Venice, this study tour conducted as part of Integrated Project Work 2 supervised by Prof. Arch. Paul Lievevrouw, focused on the theme of the Historic Urban Landscape, notably on contemporary architectural interventions in historic districts and monuments, and how cultural heritage conservation now needs to respect the energy-efficiency norms in the global quest for sustainable development. The visit of Freiburg-Rieselfeld enabled the students to see the new low-energy housing development project of some 70 hectares in the district, which was formerly a huge sewage farm of 320 hectares.

New book publication : Community Involvement in Heritage


"Community Involvement in Heritage"
Koen Van Balen and Aziliz Vandesande (Eds.)

This volume is the first in the new series of the Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation, “Reflections on Cultural Heritage Theories and Practices”. It reports on the lectures and fruitful debates dedicated to this theme during the 2014 Thematic Week, which took place January 22nd-24th. The conference entailed an integral and holistic approach towards community participation. Focusing traditionally on the conservation of the historic urban environment and immovable heritage, the RLICC took the opportunity to involve both the intangible and movable heritage fields which have a more apparent relation with community participation in managing heritage.

RLICC Newsletter Issue 14, Autumn 2014



by Koen Van Balen, Director of the RLICC

On the 22nd September 2014, the academic year 2014-2015 starts with the implementation of the new program of the Master of science in Conservation of Monuments and Sites. The major changes are the reduction of the program to three semesters, the introduction of a number of optional courses and a new planning of the first year that follows the courses and breaks of a two semester academic year. The changes aim at responding to the suggested improvements proposed in the self-evaluation report prepared during the last accreditation process. Last year, in the fall edition of the Newsletter we shared information on the concepts and implications of the program change.
