Minerva Partners is active where the traditional built environment can contribute to community strengthening. Our work rests on a simple idea: familiar, efficient, and locally manageable environments promote stability.
Small, multidisciplinary, and globally connected, Minerva Partners makes long-term, intensive commitments to a few program areas at a time to ensure sound results. The decentralized, network-centered character of the organization increases overall efficiency and productivity for the client.
Currently our work revolves around three programmatic themes:
1. Post-conflict rehabilitation
2. Economic justification for cultural asset protection
3. Traditional building strategies applied to new construction
Each thematic area has generated research, fieldwork, institutional collaborations and publication; each agenda is designed to broaden the understanding of the way built environment conservation can contribute to social development worldwide
