Addis Ababa University
2022 Preservation Intern
Having worked in different aspects of heritage conservation, this has enabled me to understand context and history, and discover the potential of heritage as a foundation for a diverse inclusive future.
Hewan Berhane is an architect focused on the conservation of cultural heritage. Having received her master’s degree in urban and architectural heritage conservation from Addis Ababa University in Ethiopia, she has dedicated her career to nurturing inclusiveness, authentic conservation and adaptive reuse directly contributing to sustainable development. Under the supervision of Scott Perkins, she worked to organize more than 20 years of digitized photographs on the preservation server to establish a system of cataloging the images in a practical way. Her work will help and improve the way Fallingwater’s curatorial and preservation team views restoration projects by date, project category and restoration methodology. She also has a bachelor’s degree in architecture and urban planning from Arba Minch University of Technology.
