  Information - GMPV10 Challenges to historical materials in urban/anthropic environment

Event Information
Materials and technology constitute the physical basis of preservation issues. Regardless if common or heritage protected buildings, mineral materials play a role in urban sustainability. This session investigates the challenges related to historical materials in conservation projects in urban environment.

Particularly interesting are contributions related, but not only, to:
- construction materials, properties, craftmanship, labor, know-how;
- changes in the use of materials induced by technological and industrial development;
- weathering;
- improvement possibilities;
- historic mortars;
- sustainability of street facades;
- preservation issues;
- investigation methods with minimum intervention;
- effects and incompatibilities on the existing materials of interventions made with new materials
