Historic building and restoration

  • Published in Blog

After Christchurch earthquakes there are many people questioning how to deal with damaged historic buildings.

There is not a straight forward answer. I would suggest a critical approach based on understanding how in the past the humanity have dealt with their historical heritage.

In the last few centuries different strategies have been tried, developed, changed, abandoned and considered again.

Understanding these, will allow us to consider the preferable solution for each building to be considered on a case by case basis.
