Architectural Restoration Program



We define all concrete and abstract values created by man and nature as cultural and natural heritage during the history of civilization. The preservation of these values and their transfer to future generations without deterioration is a common concern of existing societies. Considering that all these societies exist with their past, the importance of preserving cultural heritages and transferring them to future generations comes to the fore even more.


The preservation of cultural heritage is as important for creating the values of the future as the past.At this point, restoration, conservation and documentation activities should be carried out in a planned and scientific manner in order to transfer the concrete cultural and natural heritages found in the lands on which societies live to the next generations. It is envisaged to train technical staff who can consciously and scientifically implement all these activities in international standards, follow contemporary developments, and are equipped with practical and theoretical skills.
