Mining basin, heritage as a resource.
This roundtable is organized on the occasion of the publication of the file “Mining Basin, Heritage as Resource” in the journal D’Architectures in November 2023, produced in partnership with the IPRAUS/AUSser laboratory (UMR 3329 CNRS) of Ensa Paris-Belleville and the Mining Basin Mission.
Coordinated by Emmanuel Kyle (Da), Catherine Bertram and Virginie Lapierre (Mining Basin Mission), Lucas Monsingon and Catherine Seiler (Philippe Proust Architecture Workshop), this file concludes the IPRAUS/AUSser research program “Mining Basin, area for projects”, funded by the Mécénat Deposit Fund (2018-2023 ) led by Beatrice Mariol, Philippe Proust and Lucas Monsingon, the highlight of which was a study day held in May 2022 at the Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine.
The aim of this roundtable is primarily to introduce to a wider audience the richness of this portfolio (mining basin, heritage as resource), by highlighting the important contributions of its contributions(1), but also equally important. To open future thinking by inviting other areas of research and work whose topics and issues are complementary and convergent.
