WOODEN BUILT HERITAGE AS A RENEWABLE RESOURCE FOR LOCAL DEVELOPMENT

The course provides a comprehensive analysis of the renewal of wooden heritage (both in terms of value and technology), combining heritage protection requirements with modern needs and technical possibilities.

This course is intended for technicians and professionals working with the heritage of wooden buildings, as well as owners or managers. Interdisciplinary cooperation and the search for common solutions by all stakeholders is particularly important in modern heritage protection. We aim to convey an interdisciplinary international practice that allows us to address alternatives for the renewal of wooden architecture by assessing resources, internal and environmental factors, technological suitability and the circumstances of their application.

APPROACHES, TECHNIQUES AND INTERVENTIONS FOR THE REHABILITATION/RESTORATION OF ARCHITECTURAL HERITAGE

The course is aimed at providing tools (techniques and interventions) useful to show and explain virtuous examples of the recovery/restoration practice.

This course is based on an academic approach to solve different technical problems that may arise in the rehabilitation/restoration of the traditional architectural heritage, with a particular focus on the Mediterranean area.

The course is intended as an operational tool of comprehension of the most popular and innovative recovery techniques widely used in the recovery of historical and traditional architecture, offering general examples and also cases of originality.
