Luiz Manuel do Eirado Amorim, UFPE Claudia Loureiro, UFPE
The paper discusses conservation theories and practices, taken as its central argument the disjunction between architectural and conservation theories with regards to the concept of space. It argues that space is a central concept of modern architecture and should be observed as an object of interest for conservation and restoration. Morphological properties of space and methodological procedures for its representation, description and analysis are presented and recommended to be included to the architectural conservation consolidated practices.
