Abstract

The historic center of Lima is a cultural heritage of great interest, currently in an advanced state of decay and in need of an appropriate and effective protection. This article concerns a presentation given in Lima for the “V Jornadas de Conservación y Restauración” organized by Yachay Wasi (Instituto Superior de Conservación y Restauración) on August 30-31, 2013, later implemented by new research advancements on the analysis of residential buildings and urban fabric transformation. Research first phase has developed a methodological approach whose goal was the identification of endagered heritage, prior to every rehabilitation program. Second phase, in course of development, concerns themes related to the widening of the concept of ‘cultural heritage’, which arises the issue of preserving ‘minor’ architectural heritage, shaping the features of the space of the old city of Lima. In the study a survey form was developed which fully describes the significance and the level of risk of historic structures, gathering and coordinating highly diverse data related to architectural scale and to relationship with the city. The analysis form is here utilized to assess the conservation of minor architecture with the purpose of proposing an effective rehabilitation strategy and a social and sustainable adaptive reuse.
El casco antiguo de Lima es un patrimonio histórico-artístico en precarias condiciones de conservación que necesita una adecuada y firme acción de protección. Este artículo desarrolla una ponencia presentada en Lima en las V Jornadas de Conservación y Restauración organizadas por Yachay Wasi (Instituto Superior de Conservación y Restauración) el 30 y 31 de agosto 2013, integrada posteriormente por nuevos avances de la investigación relativos al análisis de la edilicia residencial y de la transformación del tejido urbano. La primera fase de esta investigación ha desarrollado un método de estudio, cuyo objetivo era el reconocimiento del patrimonio arquitectónico en peligro, previo a las intervenciones de recuperación. La segunda fase, actualmente en curso, desarrolla temas conexos a la extensión del concepto de testimonio histórico-arquitectónico y plantea la necesidad de conservación del patrimonio arquitectónico menor, pues contribuye a delinear las características del espacio de la antigua ciudad de Lima. Durante el estudio, se elaboraron unas fichas de análisis que describen de manera completa el valor histórico-artístico y los niveles de riesgo de las estructuras históricas, coordinando datos heterogéneos relativos a la escala arquitectónica y a las relaciones con la ciudad.
