    'Unlocking the door to being there'. The contribution of creative facilitators in supporting people living with dementia to engage with heritage settings

    Get PDF
    This article reports findings from the evaluation of ‘Sensory Palaces’, an innovative project developed by the charity Historic Royal Palaces (HRP), which looks after six of the United Kingdom’s unoccupied royal palaces. The Sensory Palaces (SP) project employs creative facilitators to support people living with dementia and their care partners in engaging with two of these sites; Hampton Court Palace, and Kew Palace. This paper focusses on the role and contribution of the creative facilitators in supporting people living with dementia to connect with these heritage spaces. It reports on data collected from facilitator interviews relating to the benefits of engaging together through sensory and creative methods to explore and share experiences of the palaces, drawing out important factors from the design, content and delivery of the sessions

    The Palace as Type. Finding Regionalism in Soviet Modernism

    Get PDF
    In a building campaign which spanned across all Soviet Republics, public “palace” buildings were the cornerstone of the architectural image which defined a political regime. At the time of their construction, the palaces were categorized primarily by program—wedding palaces, sports palaces, cinema palaces, youth palaces and cultural palaces. This paper will compare key sites of Soviet modernism (1955-1991) in three countries surrounding the Black Sea: Ukraine, Georgia and Armenia. Using these countries as case studies, this paper will discuss two important aspects of regionalism found in these works—first, the relationship between a universal program type and the local specificity signalled by the building’s original design through the use of specific construction materials, ornamentation, and cultural references; second, the transformation the building underwent after 1991 adopting or rejecting new regional affiliations related to its geographical and political location.info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersio

    Ancient Waterfront Palaces: A Case Study of the Triconch Palace in Butrint

    Get PDF
    The main goal of the work is to comprehend the motivations behind building an ancient palace next to a body of water and to define the effects of the waterbody on the waterfront palace design. To achieve this goal, the primary waterfront palaces, built in the Mediterranean and Middle East, have been studied chronologically in three time periods determined as Pre-Hellenistic Era, Hellenistic Era, Roman and Late Antique Era in order to detect the structural evolution of the investigated palaces and their interactions with one another. Using the acquired information, the ancient waterfront palaces have been divided into two main classes as artificial and natural. Artificial waterfront palaces are built inland by creating a man-made waterbody, while the natural waterfront palaces are built next to an untouched waterbody, such as seas, lakes and rivers. Due to the vulnerable location of the natural waterfront palaces, they have been divided into three subclasses regarding the level of security considered for their design. In order to understand natural waterfront palaces in depth, the Triconch Palace in Butrint, which provides significant information about the design of waterfront palaces in the Roman period, has been chosen as the main focus of the research. The palace was built in 2.- 4. centuries A.D. next to the Vivari Channel. On its first phase, which coincides with Pax Romana period, the palace reflects the features of a Roman seaside villa. After the end of Pax Romana period the increase in the security need caused structural changes on the design of the palace, which sheds light on the evolution of the natural waterfront palaces

    Unfortified elite buildings in 13th century Sweden

    Get PDF
    This paper discusses unfortified thirteenth century palaces in Sweden. The palaces were unfortified already when built, and never became fortified before being abandoned. The palaces are analysed in relation to a power-grammar of architectural properties as well as the capitalization of the use of the past. It is argued that the absence of fortifications was a way for the medieval kings and royal families to symbolically connect to the distant past, implying that the elite in the palaces saw their position as self-evident. Lordship was exercised by style, not by military forc
