Here we look at the future. How we can learn from and assess current conditions of heritage assets and plan for their recovery and integration into a coherent recovery and urban revitalisation plan.
At the heart of post-war Mosul heritage recovery is the analysis of the interconnectedness of comprehensive redevelopment, governance, integration of heritage assets and heritage fabric. Mosul’s cultural and architectural heritage is important part of its sustainable development strategy and must be embedded in a systems analysis of comprehensive redevelopment. Our research engages with current conditions of heritage assets and structures and their relevance to the intangible heritage, and assess the effectiveness of current conservation plans, projects and heritage recovery strategy.
Our team is working with local authorities, national government and policy makers on the development of a strategic plan for the recovery of heritage assets in Old Mosul, including identifying parameters, limitations and challenges. This will and embed heritage conservation and remediation within a collaborative redevelopment planning process.
We will be running public-engagement workshops and focus groups to document attitudes and interest in supporting recovery programmes and validating public response to current conservation projects and regeneration plans.
