The importance of the architectural heritage to the historical identity of a region, town or nation is now widely recognised. In order to take care of our heritage, we need to look beyond borders to benefit from the experience and knowledge of others and to gain a better understanding of its cultural background.
This Volume contains papers covering the most recent advances in this field, presented at the twelfth and latest in a series of now-biennial conferences that began in 1989. The series is recognised as the most important conference on the topic. It covers such topics as: Heritage Architecture and Historical Aspects; Assessment and Reuse of Heritage Buildings; Modern (19th/20th Century) Heritage; Structural Restoration of Metallic Structures; Regional Architecture; Preservation and Monitoring; Stone Masonry Walls; Heritage Masonry Buildings; Earth Construction; Wooden Structures; Materials Characterisation; Non-destructive Techniques; Performance and Maintenance; Simulation and Modelling; Seismic Vulnerability.
