PART OF CHILEAN PROJECT AT THE ARCHITECTURE FILM FESTIVAL LONDON by Bernadette Devilat

Bernadette was part of the Chilean project Dramatic Varieties to be presented at the Architecture Film Festival London with her films featuring the 3D laser scanning record of three heritage areas of Chile. These are San Lorenzo de Tarapacá, Zúñiga and Lolol, affected by the 2005 and 2010 earthquakes. The films are strongly evocative of their condition in 2013, mixing reconstruction, damages and ruins.

Next presentation of Bernadette's research on the 20th November 2015 by Bernadette Devilat

All welcome to the presentation I will give next 20th Of November titled:  'Re-construction and record: exploring alternatives for heritage areas after earthquakes in Chile'. It will be held at Room S16 of Institute of Education (IOE), 20 Bedford Way, London WC1H 0AL, from 3.00 to 5.00 pm. I will refer to my thesis research and also to the exhibition on Gordon St.

Abstract of the presentation: Earthquakes have progressively destroyed Chile’s built heritage over the years, but also applied reconstruction approaches during the aftermath. From the study of the 2005 and the 2010 earthquakes, the objective is to explore alternatives to address re-construction in heritage villages, based on a methodical record of case studies throughout different periods of time. By using accurate recording technologies, such as 3D laser scanning, the role that the record may have in the definition of what is considered heritage and in the design of re-construction projects is being explored; understanding those technologies’ capacity of being a virtual database for memory, preservation, demolition, intervention or replica.

Date: Friday 20th of November 2015
