“Leading with the Transformation on Cultural Identity: the case of the Refurbishment of Garcimunoz Castle in Spain“.
About the creative refurbishment of a medieval castle listed as national heritage in Cuenca, a village in Spain. The project aimed at reinforcing the historic structures and transform them into sustainable and safe spaces for the public, adding contemporary architectural value to the building’s heritage and introducing cultural activities. This experience can inform us on innovative ways by which cultural heritage can be conserved and may be applied in Sarawak.
