The project is part of the architectural documentation and analysis studies of the KMKD, is supported by the German Federal Foreign Office (Auswaertiges Amt) and covers the period from March 2021 to October 2021.
The main aims of the project are to document the architectural heritage at risk in Edirne, which has hosted different cultures throughout its history, to analyze their current status and to make recommendations for their preservation.
Although the city of Edirne is home to well-conserved and well-known historical buildings, there are numerous historic buildings which are at risk in the peripheries of the region.. In this context, our work will concentrate on the Enez, Havsa, İpsala, Keşan, Lalapaşa, Meriç, Süloğlu, Uzunköprü districts.
Documentation to be carried out on-site will consist of site visits with an interdisciplinary group of experts. The structures under risk will be examined on-site with the experts, classified according to their values and risk, evaluated together with historical research information and will be published.
We hope that the project will also contribute to the cultural awareness of the people of the region through the local relations and seminars.
