Intervention Heritage by Carlos Quevedo Rojas

Carlos Quevedo Rojas Discloses The Matrera Castle Intervention Heritage

Carlos Quevedo Rojas, the creator of the displayed work Award Winning Matrera Castle Intervention Heritage explicates, This medieval tower had partially collapsed in 2013, losing part of its imposing volume and putting at risk the architectural stability of the rest of the tower. With compatibility and authenticity criteria, the intervention looks at structurally consolidating the elements, to differentiate the additions from the original structure, avoiding mimetic reconstructions, and recovering the volume and tonality that the tower originally had as a landscape icon. The essence of the project is not intended to be, therefore, an image of the future, but rather a reflection of its own past, its own origin..
