Historic Urban Landscape Workshop 5 – Amsterdam (online)

The 5th CLIC Historic Urban Landscape workshop was held online on September 2nd, 2020. This workshop constitutes the last of a series of five events aiming at involving stakeholders to investigate the adaptive reuse of cultural heritage within the CLIC Project. This workshop aimed at assessing the usability and feasibility of the tools and models developed by the CLIC project, and identify the barriers related to their use and implementation in the CLIC pilot local context. The assessment was carried out by the stakeholders participating in this research activity informing the project-long assessment.

The workshop was organized and facilitated by Nadia Pintossi and Deniz Ikiz Kaya, CLIC researchers from the Eindhoven University of Technology with the contribution of the CLIC partners from CNR IRISS, ICHECH, Iniziativa Cube, UNG, UNIWARSAW, UoP, and WU. The workshop participants were CNR IRISS, ICHECH, ICLEI, Iniziativa Cube, TUd, UNG, UNIWARSAW, UoP, UU, and WU; three of the CLIC pilots, namely Pakhuis de Zwijger, the Municipality of Salerno, and the region of Västra Götaland; and stakeholders of the CLIC pilots, e.g. Bureau8080, Yppokrates, University of Rijeka.

Participants found that the tools and models were useful, but slightly less feasible because of the barriers encountered in the use and implementation of these tools and models. Among the implementation barriers, the ones more often reported are expertise, data and information, demands and times, finance, and integration. The results of the workshop offer insights to find ways to overcome the barriers to facilitate the implementation of the tools and models assessed.
