Dr Cristina Gonzalez-Longo

Lecturer

Architecture

Personal statement

Cristina is the Director of the MSc in Architectural Design for the Conservation of Built Heritage and Lecturer in Architectural Heritage, Conservation and Community Identity. After graduating at the School of Architecture of the Technical University of Madrid (ETSAM), she spent three years in Rome with a scholarship from the Italian Government to specialise in architectural conservation at the University of Rome "La Sapienza". Her research interests evolve mainly around architectural conservation and new design in historic buildings and sites. She finds important to integrate disciplines such as architectural history and theory, conservation theory, sustainability, urban regeneration, construction history, materials technology, archaeology and philosophy of culture in order to be able to research, understand, interpret, design and transmit the values and meaning of a historic building effectively to students and the wider society.
