The conference will focus on the "Jardín Indiano Observatory" a project aimed at exploring and documenting the legacy of the Indiano gardens in Asturias.
If you've ever wondered about the legacy of the Indiano gardens in the Principality of Asturias, you won't want to miss the upcoming online conference organized by Hispania Nostra, an association dedicated to the preservation of Spain's cultural and natural heritage. This organization works tirelessly to protect and promote Spanish heritage and, as part of its #HispaniaNostraWithYouAtHome initiative, offers an online platform to learn and enjoy heritage from the hands of leading professionals.
The event will feature Daniel Valera, an agricultural engineer and creative director of DSTUDIO with over a decade of experience in landscape design. Daniel is an academic reference and leads a multidisciplinary team of architects, engineers, and landscapers. His practical approach is complemented by research projects that include the application of artificial intelligence technologies in the field of landscape design and the study of the Asturian garden of the 19th century, the topic chosen for his upcoming lecture.
The conference will focus on the "Jardín Indiano Observatory" a project aimed at exploring and documenting the legacy of the Indiano gardens in Asturias between the second half of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century. During the presentation, a detailed analysis of the various stages of the research project will be offered, highlighting its current status and the preliminary conclusions that have emerged from the first year of implementation. Information gathered so far will be presented through a work diary that ranges from visits to some gardens and interviews with relevant agents in the field, to the adoption of advanced artificial intelligence technologies applied to the analysis and study of these invaluable historical spaces.
As a focal point, a case study focused on the rehabilitation of a 19th-century Indiano garden that has been restored by our team in recent years will be presented.
