Building Performance : Care and conservation of historic church buildings and their collections

Conference

du 02 October 2014 au

Organized by:Organisé par :
ChurchCare, United Kingdom

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : London, United Kingdom

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description :
Building Performance (environmental assessments to support the use and development of cathedrals and church buildings) will look at the conservation challenges and technical demands that arise with the multiple uses of historic church buildings, including worship, education and community support, tourism and the display of museum-quality collections. Building performance assessment is a critical tool for the successful management of historic buildings and brings together information about the fabric, the microclimate, services (especially heating), and current and future uses. By understanding how a building is performing, day-to-day management can be more effective, care and conservation can be more sustainable, and the risks and running costs of alterations minimised.

2nd AIA Taliesin Colloquium : From Grime to Sublime : Standards for Cleaning Masonry Buildings

Symposium

fromdu 10 October 2014 toau 12 October 2014

Organized by:Organisé par :
AIA Historic Resources Committee, Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, Architectural Specialty Group of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works, United States

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Taliesin West, Arizona, United States

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description :
The maintenance, repair, and rehabilitation of existing buildings often includes cleaning the exterior surfaces of stone, brick, terra cotta, and concrete. There are philosophical, aesthetic, technical, scientific, and economic factors that should be considered when specifying materials and methods for cleaning. What is the masonry material, and what is the cause and composition of soil? Is the soiling damaging the masonry material? What are the owner’s expectations? What is an appropriate aesthetic target for the character of the building? Is the patina character-defining? Will a particular cleaning approach result in short term appeal and long term damage? Is the masonry best left alone? What is an optimum cycle for recleaning that balances the applicable factors? In summary, how do we characterize soiling, how should one clean a building, and ought one to clean a building, and what is the meaning of ‘clean?
