This symposium focuses on 20th-century conservation practice and policy and brings together leading international and national speakers in this field. Beginning with an introduction to the work method and research findings for St Brendan’s Community school, the debate will widen out to address our values in relation to 20th century built heritage and policy. The symposium will also address conservation projects of seminal 20th century buildings and consider the specific issues facing this generation’s building stock. The symposium will be of relevance to architects and conservation professionals with an interest in 20th century built heritage.

The symposium was made possible with support from the Getty Foundation through its ‘Keeping It Modern’ initiative and is supported by the Irish Architectural Archive.
