Great project! An “identity card” is being prepared for each building in the Šibenik city center

first_imgEach of the approximately 2.000 buildings located in the protected city center of Šibenik should soon have its own publicly available ‘identity card’ with all the relevant information, photographs, and guidelines for restoration. It is a unique project, not only in Croatia, but also in the world.That is one of the goals of the new great project “Information system of the cultural and historical ensemble of Šibenik”. conducted by the Šibenik Citizens’ Association Society for the Preservation of Šibenik Heritage Juraj Dalmatinac.”We are actually working more actively on this project for a long time, and it was formally started after a meeting we organized two years ago and gathered representatives of the City of Šibenik, the city department for property and legal relations, utilities, the Tourist Board, the Association of Architects and Conservators. Our wish was to do something to preserve the core of Šibenik, the city’s greatest value, as efficiently as possible, and to protect it from devastation and inappropriate construction.”Points out Nikola Grubić, president of the association.As a first step, careful registration of all buildings in the city center was imposed, so in cooperation with the Society of Architects Šibenik, ie the youth section of the Society of Architects Šibenik (ROOM) started recording the first 300 buildings in accordance with guidelines and recommendations of the Conservation Department. After six months of work, with the help of a donation from the Adris Foundation in the amount of HRK 50 awarded to them in the tender, the Juraj Dalmatinac Society and DAŠ collected all the necessary data for the first 300 buildings. “Nine members of the Society of Architects Šibenik participated in the project, and in addition to the records of the current condition of the buildings, information was collected on guidelines for potential renovation. Otherwise, the content of the identification card of the building, which can also be called the ‘personal card of the building’, contains general information: the number of the cadastral parcel, the area, the address and the house number. Then there are data on protection with markings of cultural property and protection system, and a description of the building with a prominent time of construction, purpose, number of storeys, data on the roof, etc. ” Grubic points out.In addition to the above, on the website for public use with a simple click of the mouse for each of the buildings will be able to find valid provisions from the GUP of the City of Šibenik, photos of all street facades, the so-called cadastral situation, and, most importantly, guidelines for restoration. Namely, once these basic guidelines are readily available, potential renovators of buildings in the core should not violate conservation guidelines by using unsuitable renovation materials (roofs, facades, windows, doors, etc.), or by otherwise damaging protected buildings.The Juraj Dalmatinac Society is satisfied because this project is the first of its kind in Croatia and beyond, and could become applicable to other cities in the country and abroad, and it is a special pleasure that in cooperation with other professional associations (DAŠ) what at first seemed like an impossible task. ”This is just the beginning. There are still about 1.700 buildings that need to be treated in the same way. We launched this project solely to protect our core, and to help our citizens have as few problems as possible during reconstruction. ” Grubic concludes.I constantly emphasize that the very essence of tourism is authenticity, and that I have to start respecting our culture, heritage, identities… because that is exactly our greatest tourist value. The stone heart of Šibenik is what makes the city of Šibenik, ie a tourist destination, unique, and this is an excellent example of sustainable development and preservation of our tradition and heritage. If we look at the bigger picture, it is unfortunate that under the prism of development we are constantly copying others, and we have exactly what others want – a unique and authentic story. take a look around and ask yourself how hotels are built on our coast, I mean design them? Do they fit into our unique space and ambience? Do we have any guidelines on how many floors and widths they can have, what material…President and vice-president of DJD Nikola Grubić and Gustav Červar with the president of DAŠ Dario Crnogač and project manager Iva Petković Pavić.This is not about banning investments or hotels, private capital looks exclusively at its own interest and dances within the framework we set for it. This is about sustainable and strategic development. We are irreversibly destroying our destinations with wild construction in the past, and now at the same pace without any framework and care, we allow the construction of hotels without any rules of the game, ie to follow the guidelines to better fit into the space.A copy is a copy, and the original will always have its value as well as the motive for coming. And that is why this example, both as a project and as a Society for Heritage Preservation, is one of the most important projects in Šibenik. Because if we turn into copies, the question arises as to why people would travel. Do not forget that the very motive of tourism, ie travel, is to get to know new ways and cultures of living.It is up to us, and the biggest responsibility is not on the Ministry of Tourism or the CNTB, but on the cities and the local population, which are themselves most responsible for the development of cities and tourist destinations.Let us respect ourselves, so that others may respect us. It’s all up to us. &amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br />
