• Ottoman Heritage

At the Florence triennial General Assembly in 2014, several ISCs expressed interest in the concept of an inter-ISC meeting that revolves around interdisciplinary research on a building type that proliferated throughout the seismic regions of Anatolia. This building typology involves the use of a stone foundation, wood framework and mud-brick or rubble-stone infill to create anti-seismic thermally efficient vernacular structures. The ISCs that have expressed interest include ISCEAH (Earthen Architectural Heritage), IIWC (Wood), CIAV (Vernacular Heritage), ICORP (Risk Preparedness), ISCARSAH (Analysis and Restoration of Structures), CIVVIH (Historic Towns and Villages), and ISCES (Energy and Sustainability), ISCS (Stone), and CIPA (Documentation). The joint meeting would bring an unprecedented number of ISCs together and review an architectural typology from various disciplinary approaches. In addition to ISCs, certain National Committees may also be interested in participating.
