In september j.l. werd het tweejaarlijks congres van DOCOMOMO georganiseerd in Lissabon met als gastlocatie de Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. Het groot aantal inschrijvingen vanuit de gehele wereld resulteerde in een zeer groot aanbod van lezingen. Bij de opening verschenen ook de “proceedings”, een boek met 1023 pagina’s!

Binnen het congres nam België twee sessies voor haar rekening: “The Modern Interior –Toward a re-evaluation in the context of adaptive reuse” (Zsuzsanna Böröcz & Bárbara Coutinho) en “50 years after the Second Vatican Council – Taking the Modern Church into the 21st century” (Sven Sterken, Thomas Coomans, Luc Verpoest) (zie afbeelding).

In totaal namen 11 Belgen deel aan dit congres (Luc Verpoest, Sander Van Duppen, Brecht Van Duppen, Zsuzsanna Böröcz, Sven Sterken, Marc Dubois, Bie Plevoets, Eva Weyns, Greg Gosiau, Jan Thomaes en Karina Van Herck)

Tijdens de algemene vergadering werd beslist om het voorstel van Zsuzsanna Böröcz & Bárbara Coutinho voor een afzonderlijke DOCOMOMO ISC on Modern Interior Design goed te keuren.

Het volgend congres in 2018 zal plaatsvinden in Ljubljana, de hoofdstad van Slovenië (MD).

Docomomo International thanks the Honour Committee, the Scientific and Advisory Committees, the Session Chairs and all the attendants for the participation in the 14th International Docomomo Conference that took place from 6 to 9 September, in Lisbon, at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, under the theme “Adaptive Reuse. The Modern Movement towards the Future”.

Thanks to their contribution, the Conference has been a great success, judging by the intense and positive feedback received from the media, the participants and the general public. It was a pleasure to count with the commitment and knowledge of all the participants to wisely contribute for the debate on adaptive reuse.

This event was filled with smiles, talks and memories to keep, through a dense and diversified programme full of novelties. We wish to highlight the success of the call for sessions, the Proceedings, and the collaboration of all the committees, chapters, partners, supporters, session chairs, authors, staff and volunteers.

Thank you all!
