The subject of ARCHITECTURAL COMPOSITION 6 (CA6) develops a specific syllabus on theories and intervention projects in the architectural heritage (historical and modern) and culminates the subjects of the area of knowledge of the Architectural Composition (history, theory, criticism and heritage of the architecture and the city) in Degree of Fundamentals in Architecture. A conceptual and applied approach to intervention in territorial, urban and architectural heritage is proposed, understood as a disciplinary theme that can also be approached from sustainability and recycling. The legislative and urbanistic conditions in terms of protection of the architectural-urban-territorial heritage, as well as the intervention attitudes towards it, will be emphasized. In order to do so, themes of reflection such as the heritage-monument duality, cataloging documents, critical attitudes towards heritage or intervention criteria, among others, are proposed. Through this agenda, it is intended to complete the technological approach that does urban and architectural heritage from other areas of knowledge.

The subject has as objective an approach the problems arising from the intervention in the existing urban and architectural heritage, which accumulates a series of values of remembrance and contemporaneity to represent the built memory of society. The student is provided, on the one hand, with a hermeneutical body of theories to assess the architectural heritage and, on the other hand, a working methodology is constructed both to assess (and to catalog) and to proceed with the intervention on the different cases of architectural heritage (historical and modern). In this subject, students are expected to be able to perceive and to understand the processes of temporal stratification of cities and their architectures, the passage of time and the conservation of accumulated memory and identity knowledge, as well as methods and tools for the valuation of the urban and architectural heritage, its protection and its intervention to prolong and revalidate its values before future generations. Criteria and tools are also provided for the contemporary consideration of monuments and memorials. For this, the theoretical contents and the learning of them will be validated in the practical works of data collection, research on the built and on recovery proposals on the patrimonial subjects of each course, as well as on work of cataloging the heritage and the expositions and reflections on the actuality of monuments and memorials.
