The International Congress on Architecture and Landscape Heritage | Malagueira (CIPA | M) is an event organised by the research project "Malagueira: Heritage for all. Contributions for its nomination / MALAGUEIRA.PT" funded by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT).
The Malagueira neighbourhood in Évora, is a work by Álvaro Siza Vieira, that together with seventeen other works, have been included, since 2016, on the Portuguese Tentative List for UNESCO World Heritage Site. Malagueira, is a project with more than four decades on which Álvaro Siza Vieira continues to work.
Malagueira patrimonialization, as well as any other patrimonialization of an architectural work of the 20th century, presents challenges and opportunities that we would like to share and discuss at CIPA | M.
This congress is also an opportunity to honour Álvaro Siza Vieira.
CIPA | M, aims to bring together researchers and professionals from different areas of knowledge, such as architects, landscape architects, urban planners, sociologists, anthropologists, curators, engineers, historians and artists to share their experiences and research results on the Architecture and Landscape Heritage of the 20th century, with a special focus on two themes that structure this congress: 1. cultural heritage and community; 2. heritage management and public participation.
1. Cultural heritage and community
In the first theme, we intend to discuss the contemporary concept of heritage, deepening its cultural dimensions as a set of symbolic systems in which we are inserted and that help us to understand the world, giving a meaning to both personal and collective experience (Porto Santo Charter, 2021). We also intend to discuss the ways in which the community relates to its heritage - the result of a cultural and social process in a specific place and at a specific time. Expanding the concept, with the introduction of cultural, social, and economic values, does not mean that traditional values associated with history, aesthetics, artistic value and authenticity are not taken into account.
2. Heritage management and public participation
The second theme intends to explore new models of management for 20th century heritage, that value the participation of citizens, opening the door to local cultural appreciation, complementing it with other cultural expressions. It is important to discuss current decision-making processes based on knowledge and understanding of present cultural values, and not only, in regulatory processes. Examples linked to the resilience and sustainability of architectural and landscape heritage are welcome.
