Abstract

The principal aim of this work is to prescribe creativity into the renovation and reconstruction process in architecture. This issue connects both petrified past and unknown future with the simple idea of preventing local heritage and Portuguese legacy. The field of our research and creative design will be the Rua da Madalena (Madalena Street) in Lisbon downtown – Baixa Pombalina. The case study and estimated results would serve as a prototype for more innovative thinking about renovation of urban tissue and buildings for similar examples. Following the latest economic trends, the rebirth of traditional forms of business and interest for local heritage, we will attempt to bound raw numbers with endless sources of our creative minds. This case study, presented in the Heritage versus Tourism Conference in Lisbon, in May 2016 would be a step-by-step, a “know-how” example for many streets with various ambient over the world. Hence, the architectural and aesthetic values would be presented first, mathematical marketing formula afterward. The equation would involve both tangible and intangible factors and would be our attempt to introduce creative thinking as a ground for concrete, visible consequences. Architecture is a field, where this attempt could succeed.

Pagrindinis šio tyrimo tikslas – apčiuopti kūrybiškumą architektūros renovavimo ir rekonstravimo procese. Šiame straipsnyje tiek sustabarėjusi praeitis, tiek nežinoma ateitis susiejama su paprasta idėja atmesti vietos paveldą ir portugališkąjį palikimą. Mūsų tyrimo ir kūrybinio projektavimo sritis – Rua da Madalena (Madalenos gatvė), esanti Lisabonos senamiestyje – Baiksoje Pombalinoje. Atvejo tyrimas ir vertinimo rezultatai bus kaip novatoriškesnio mąstymo apie miesto audinio ir pastatų renovavimą, turint mintyje panašius pavyzdžius, prototipas. Atsižvelgdami į naujausias ekonomikos tendencijas, tradicinių verslo formų atgimimą ir susidomėjimą vietos paveldu, sieksime susieti neapdorotus skaičius su begaliniais mūsų kūrybiško proto šaltiniais. Šis atvejo tyrimas, 2016 metų gegužę pristatytas Paveldo versus turizmo konferencijoje Lisabonoje, bus laipsniškas praktinės patirties pavyzdys daugeliui skirtingos aplinkos gatvių visame pasaulyje. Taigi pirmiausia bus pristatytos architektūrinė ir estetinė vertės, vėliau matematinės rinkodaros formulė. Lygtis apims tiek apčiuopiamus, tiek neapčiuopiamus veiksnius, ir tai bus mūsų pastangos remtis kūrybiniu mąstymu kaip konkrečių, matomų rezultatų pagrindu. Architektūra – tai sritis, kurioje šios pastangos gali būti sėkmingos.
