Cultural heritage and restoration constitute a field of research in a rapid state of development at KADK. A recent grant of DKK 3.75 million from Realdania has created an opportunity to develop the area even further.
The project Sustainable Built Heritage, led by Professor Christopher Harlang will run from 2014 to 2018. Working with five sub-projects, the intention is to develop methods and directions for how to conduct research with respect for both the environment and cultural heritage.
The projects examine issues surrounding the transformation of rural areas in Denmark - how to preserve cultural heritage and how to enhance “peripheral” areas - and the environmental consequences associated with demolition or restoration.
