Conservation by Documentation / Conservation by International Awareness :
The METU Faculty of Architecture building is in active use and the research studio of the core group is located in the building. Thus, in-situ building analysis can be considered as a daily life practice. For this reason, rather than challenging the conventional conservation planning methods, the research has been conducted in parallel to the standard conservation planning activities. However, the linear flow of the planning stages has been reinterpreted with inevitable overlaps and transdisciplinary processes. Understanding the place, assessing the significance, gathering information to inform policies have been conducted in parallel to the progressive and intrusive implementations of daily maintenance. A novel approach based on the development of a heritage building information modelling (HBIM) was adopted to gather, generate and analyze the building data throughout the conservation planning process.
