Tai Kwun Conversations - International Series on Architectural Conservation

The spring season of Tai Kwun Conversations presents three international case studies of built heritage conservation, respectively covering the renovation of the Staatsoper Unter den Linden in Berlin, the adaptive reuse of the former Supreme Court and City Hall buildings in Singapore as the new National Gallery Singapore, and the rebuilding of the medieval cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris after the April 2019 fire. Join us to explore the protection and continuity of world heritage that embraces transformation, resilience, and adaptation to changing conditions.
