Historic concrete buildings are at risk. Limited knowledge of concrete technology until the 1960s led to more sensitive buildings than modern concrete buildings. In addition, the lack of sensibility regarding their heritage value and insufficient protection is leading to remorseless demolition. Still, concrete has proved to be a resilient material...

Age and ageing can be felt as negative occurrences. For monuments, however, old age is traditionally considered to be a positive quality. Without a certain age, the designation “monument” hardly applies. Ageing can be seen as the work of time, which has always been valued: ageing was sometimes even artificially induced in the past. In this paper, w...

In heritage conservation, a gap is often observed between the theory of conservation as a durable process that aims at the preservation of a historic building and the practice of restoration as a single intervention that aims at a fast and convincing result. This paper describes the proposed approach for the conservation of the main façade of the S...

The EU project COMPASS, Compatibility of Plasters and renders with Salt loaded Substrates in historic buildings, aimed at improving the maintenance of monuments by means of a better understanding of the working principles of the plasters and the damage mechanisms induced by salt crystallisation. Salt damage was effectively studied modelling the moi...

The use of expert systems in building practice and more specifically a system meant to mitigate the effects of decay and damage to buildings belonging to the cultural heritage is a quite recent development.MDDS, the Masonry Damage Diagnostic System, is an expert system developed for the diagnosis of damage to ancient masonry structures. The princip...

This paper deals with the use of an integrated microscopic method to assist in the investigation of the causes and the extent of decay of the stones and ornaments in the gothic Church of Our Lady in Breda, The Netherlands. The purpose of the study was to determine whether conservation measures were necessa-ry. As part of the investigation 8 fluores...
Article
Pointing plays both a technical (protective) and an aesthetical role within a wall. Pointing in monuments also possesses a historical, documentary value. Its value and its significance need to be clarified in view of a restoration. The aim of this work is to propose criteria and guidelines to carry out not only technically, but also historically an...
Chapter
This computerized system allows an analytical classification of the object and its decay. Nevertheless it is not necessary to fill in all the fields: it should rather be decided which data to obtain according to specific needs. Once different working teams have agreed on the meaning of each key word and can therefore refer to the same parameters, i...

Amsterdam en Venetië zijn beide gebouwd op water, waarmee deze steden een belangrijke overeenkomst kennen. Amsterdam wordt zelfs het Venetië van het Noorden genoemd. Toch zijn de overeenkomsten tussen Venetië en Amsterdam niet beperkt tot de nauwe band met water, maar behoren ook de funderingen daartoe. In dit artikel wordt gefocust op de houten pa...

By means of a questionnaire a study was carried out to investigate the perception of small scale damage and repairs of natural stone used in buildings. Participants were asked to evaluate damage to natural stone shown on pictures. They were also asked to give their opinion on interventions needed to preserve or restore the material. Significant dif...

CONSECH20 is an European Project supported by the JPI CH Heritage in Changing Environments programme that aims at developing innovative approaches for the conservation and protection of 20th cent. heritage concrete buildings against the ever-changing urban impacts, taking into account both technical and social aspects. CONSECH20 focuses on constructions built with 20th cent. historic concrete (primarily until 1960) with social interest in the sense of bringing people together (e.g. for recreation, inhabiting, working) to strengthen the link between society and 20th cent. architectural heritage. CONSECH20 objectives are: (i) Increasing the potential of 20th cent. historic concrete cultural heritage as a promotion vector for social integration and cultural tourism, (ii) Contributing to the establishment and development of the notion of Heritage Science, a relatively new and emerging field of science that aspires to bridge the gap between humanities and applied sciences, (iii) Outlining new approaches to participatory monitoring and conservation/restoration for future use of modern architectural heritage by stakeholders, and (iv) Outlining new approaches for citizen engagement in the protection of modern architectural heritage. The Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics of the Czech Academy of Sciences coordinates the project consortium composed of 5 partners: The Delft University of Technology, the University of Cyprus, the University of Genova, and the Institute of Sociology of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus.
