Romantic Modernism: Nostalgia in the World of Conservation by Wim Denslagen

Romantic Modernism: Nostalgia in the World of Conservation by Wim Denslagen

English | Feb 15, 2011 | ISBN: 9089641033 | 261 Pages | PDF | 14 MB

In the world of architectural conservation, there is little tolerance for reconstructing or even protecting historic facades when everything behind is modern, and even less for reconstructing a building that has been completely destroyed. These offenses are considered lies against history. In this thoughtful, revealing work, conservation expert Wim Denslagen traces this predilection for honesty to the legacy of Functionalism, a Romantic-era movement that denounced the building of pseudo-architecture in favor of a new, rational form of building. With detailed analyses of headline-making restoration projects from Bruges to Berlin, Denslagen shows that the adoption of these romantic values by conservationists gave rise to a new wave of modern additions and transformations.
