Conserving culture: adapting old buildings for new audiences
John McAslan + Partners (JMP) is a global architecture studio with specialist expertise in adaptive reuse and conservation. Join architect John McAslan as he shares international case studies in adapting older and heritage buildings to meet contemporary needs.
The focus will be on The Burrell Collection. JMP was architect and landscape designer for the restoration and modernisation of the Grade-A listed Burrell Collection building, which houses one of the world’s greatest private collections of 14th and 15th century art. It contains over 9,000 internationally significant medieval, Islamic, Chinese, Egyptian and French Impressionist artworks. The landmark 1983 building has been sensitively transformed to display more of the collection and better serve the museum and its visitors.
John McAslan + Partners has worked with arts and cultural organisations globally to adapt existing buildings for the present and future and will share other examples in this insightful presentation, which will be of relevance to anyone with an interest in art and architecture.
