dc.description.abstractRestoration of a historical building is always a great opportunity for people who are passionate about preserving heritage. This project is envisaged to convert San Ignacio Church into an ecclesiastical museum which will house over 2, 000 religious artifacts, with multi-purpose exhibition, auditorium and library. The main objective of this project is to produce a design proposal that involves adaptive reuse and conservation. It draws upon the use of historical data gathering, site survey, prototype models and design conceptualization using adaptive reuse as a conservation technique. The purpose of the project is to produce a design proposal that involves adaptive reuse and conservation of San Ignacio Church and converts it to Museo de Intramuros which will house religious artifacts. This will preserve the legacy of the dying Filipino Christian heritage and educate young generations in regards to the history of Filipino Christianity. The project’s objectives is to make the ruin useful, to enhance the quality of the site and protect it from the proliferation of squatters and warehouses. It also serves as an additional tourist attraction that can generate income and promote Filipino tradition.en_NZ
