International Conference: CuCa_Re Project
6th and 7th June 2019, Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, Lisbon, Portugal

The international Conference CuCa_Re Project is part of the “Cure and Care_the rehabilitation” Research Project. This project is coordinated by IST-ID (Associação do Instituto Superior Técnico para a Investigação e o Desenvolvimento) and the Principal Investigator is Ana Tostões, President of Docomomo International.

This project aims to study healthcare buildings built in Portugal in the 20th century and their role in the welfare society policy, approaching future challenges driven by the developments in technology and medicine, and the need to assure a sustainable built environment. These buildings are susceptible to be transformed, deactivated or even demolish in a near future. On a historical, cultural and social level, the development of appropriate techniques of conservation and rehabilitation towards a sustainable built environment includes reflecting on cure and care structures.

CuCa_Re Project focusses on rehabilitation strategies, considering both conservation and reuse interventions. To answer present day requirements of comfort, safety and legal constraints, the project aims also to evaluate the tolerance to change of health care buildings addressing identity and authenticity values.

The International Conference CuCa_Re Project will take place in the 6th and 7th June 2019 at the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian (Auditório 3) from 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
