Being Authentic: Restoring Historic Buildings and their Interiors

the notion of authenticity in architectural restoration and conservation projects.

Time: 6.30

What does it mean to be ‘authentic’ in an architectural restoration or conservation project? In this lively and sometimes provocative exposé of restoration theory and dogma, Michael Davis explores the ways in which ideas of ‘authenticity’ are often misused and misunderstood. Using examples from Scotland and further afield, he seeks to set authenticity in the wider context of the very rationale that underpins our desire to restore or to conserve.
