Abstract

This paper discusses the concept and the process of the rehabilitation and conservation works of San Juan de Dios Hospital in Velez-Malaga. The building represents a significant landmark in the history of the city and part of its intangible heritage. It has however, as many other heritage sites, suffered from neglect and disuse. There was an urgent need to provide innovative ap-proach that not only technically sounds for its use and retrofit but also with an inclusive ap-proach to bring together the council with the population of Velez-Malaga. In a time of econom-ic uncertainty, the selection of an 'ideal solution/s' by rationalising 'planning' alternatives within the constraints of Local and Federal governments is no longer viable, in that is does not provide the innovation required to change paradigms and shift city assets. Alternative approaches to her-itage rehabilitation are required in order to combat the many challenges found in cities today.
