  • Materials, Technologies and Practice in Historic Heritage Structures

    The planners cannot go out today from a ‘tabula rasa’ situation anymore. Environmental and sustainability issues have already formed the public idea that a 'greenbelt' of our cities is necessary, a kind of fortification leading to intensive development in towns inside a clearly delimited area within the surrounding nature. Since building on the ...
