Abstract

The architectural hierarchy of aims altered in the last decades. Quality and comfort have dethroned functionality! We are already familiar with the taxonomy – quality certification in the construction world; but in architectural designs, it is not common to evaluate scientifically, if the design has quality or, if the designer has performed qualitatively well regarding the circumstances. Therefore, evaluations that go beyond technical regulations are usually vague and subjective. Integrated in the doctoral research Re-Architecture: Lifespan rehabilitation of built heritage, supervised by Prof. Post and Prof. Erkelens, the architect Ana Pereira Roders is theorizing a design process for rehabilitation interventions, where the pre-design and design evaluation are key stages.
