Description: Royaumont, L’Ospitale, the Grand-Hornu, Suomenlinna and La Tourette are five sites in Europe that illustrate an original approach to reviving monuments. they represent a collective adventure undertaken by the Cultural Centres – Historic Monuments.
These monuments, emmeshed in the daily lives of many people, yet thought-provoking and dream-like, are represented here in the form of a portfolio. The perceptions of four important European photographers are thus made available to the reader, along with comments based on the viewpoints and collective experience of the monuments' professional staffs.
The re-use of monuments is a subtle alchemy between places, people and time. This publication is about individual initiative and collective ambition, the lessons learned in the field of architecture and the value of duration.
