Seminar at the MSc course “Resilient Strategies in Risk Situations”

Assist. Professor Georgios Artopoulos from the Cyprus Institute presented research activities and results of the study of the historic city of Nicosia with the use of computational simulations and interactive visualization techniques at Politecnico di Milano, Milan, Italy, 4-6 June 2018. Georgios was invited to deliver a seminar at the MSc course “Resilient Strategies in Risk Situations” of the School of Architecture, where he presented and discussed with 40 post-graduate students the impact of the application of computational simulations for the engagement of interdisciplinary groups of stakeholders of the city and the local communities towards the resilient co-management of historic sites in European cities.

The course featured interdisciplinary presentations and workshops on Gentrification processes in Heritage contexts, and specifically in the case of Patios in Córdoba (Spain), which was declared a UNESCO intangible cultural heritage in 2012.
