Conceptual Architectural Heritage Preservation

Master of Science

Professional and long-lasting preservation of historic architecture is becoming an increasingly important and challenging aspect in the building industry as well as for specialized conceptual craftsmanship. In order to meet these challenges facing architectural heritage preservation, the building industry and property developers alike, sensitivity for the different materials used in historic architecture needs to be developed; one needs to understand where and under what circumstances they can be successfully used, and know the techniques to successfully apply under today’s circumstances and – not least – how to unite the work rendered by various technical crews on site.
