• Fort Santiago Front Walls

    Year: 2013

    Duration: 7 months

    As part of the school’s commitment to support Intramuros Administration in its efforts to conserve the walled city, Escuela Taller allocated some of its resources to perform maintenance works on the entrance walls of Fort Santiagoin 2013.

    Damaged stonework from previous interventions, advanced plant growth, and thick carbon deposits were the major issuesof the fort walls.Cleaning, liberation, and consolidation works were performed by the students and graduates of the Masonry workshop for seven months.

    By this time, the graduates of Escuela Taller have enough experience in conservation works and are now able to impart to their younger counterparts the knowledge and skills they learned from previous projects.
