Summary

Henri Sauvage (1873-1932) est un architecte et décorateur français majeur de son époque, dont l’œuvre s’étend de l’Art nouveau à l’Art Déco et annonce le modernisme. Par un hasard du calendrier, plusieurs restaurations de ses bâtiments sont actuellement en cours de préparation (Villa Majorelle à Nancy, la Piscine des Amiraux à Paris, la Maison Losseau à Mons). Afin de profiter de cette occasion unique, une demi-journée spéciale d’étude a été organisée. Dans un premier temps sous la forme de conférence internationale, les principaux acteurs de ces différents projets de restauration ont été invités à présenter leurs projets à différents stades d’avancement. Suivra dans un second temps une master classe internationale où ces intervenants seront rejoints par des architectes belges, également spécialisés en restauration, afin de partager leur expérience et points de vue.

Announcement

Argument

Henri Sauvage (1873-1932) is a major French architect and decorator of his period; his work extends from Art Nouveau to Art Déco, announcing modernism. By chance, several restorations of his buildings are actually under development (Villa Majorelle in Nancy, the Piscine des Amiraux in Paris, the Losseau House in Mons).

In order to benefit from this unique occasion, a special study half-day is organized; it is divided into two parts.    
In a first phase, as an international conference, the main actors of these different restoration projects were invited to present their projects at different stages of progress. An international master class will follow in a second phase, where the first speakers will be joined by Belgian architects specialised in restoration in order to share their experience and points of view. The audience will be invited to take part in it.

This event, freely open to all, is organized in the framework of the annual meetings of the Réseau Art Nouveau Network, which is to take place in Brussels from 24 to 26 March 2017 and is supported by Brussels Urban Development (Brussels-Capital Region), the Faculty of Architecture La Cambre-Horta (ULB), the Brussels Art Nouveau Art Deco Festival, the CIVA Foundation and the Royal Institute of the Artistic Heritage (KIK-IRPA).

This meeting will be also the opportunity to launch the Executive Master in conservation-restoration of the architectural heritage, which is to start in September 2017 at the ULB.

Simultaneous interpretation French – English – Dutch will be available.
