A note from SACES
28th April 2022
As SACES, the Society of Architecture and Civil Engineering, we collaborated with MICAS to invite students for an exclusive on-site exposure to the art space’s ongoing architectural project in Floriana.
On a yearly basis, we strive to provide various on-site opportunities to our faculty’s students, exposing them as much as possible to the practical side of our industry. Thanks to MICAS’ site visit, our visitors could understand the design and construction challenges attributed in the practice of conservation.
Through the professional design presentation, our students were able to appreciate the works involved in preserving historical value, whilst still providing a new architectural function to the site. This is currently being proposed in a four-phased construction timeline, during which the site will be altered into a contemporary art exhibit museum.
We would like to express our appreciation towards MICAS for such a successful collaboration. We look forward to working together in the near future.
