Modernist buildings are all too often treated inferiorly within heritage. Wessel de Jonge explains the importance of preserving modernist buildings.

Lecture in the context of Heritage Days.

Lieve Colruyt

In the context of Heritage Day, we zoom in on the underexposed role of modernism. The preservation of architectural heritage is a discursive practice that seeks justification in history on the one hand, and in (collective) memory on the other. The heritage of modern architecture is often not yet considered part of “history”.

Archipel wants to change this and invites Wessel de Jonge (NL), one of the founders of DOCOMOMO. He is a practicing architect with an international reputation for the preservation of twentieth-century buildings and he was intensively involved in the rehabilitation of two icons of twentieth-century modern Dutch architecture, the Zonnestraal sanatorium (1926-1931) and the Van Nelle factory (1925–1930).
