Intervention in Heritage and the Accessibility Project
Buildings designed by architects today are accessible, they must be accessible. They must be bright, stable, sustainable... and then they will be beautiful.
And what to do with this quality, which we consider to be indissoluble from architecture itself, with heritage buildings that come to us untouchable from other times and other sensibilities?
This book, attempts to approach accessibility to heritage architecture from a scientific point of view . We Will establish guidelines, a system, to intervene in any Historic Monument, Historic Site, Historic Garden, Historic Place or Archaeological Area.
The book arises from a research work initiated under the perspective of the Faro Convention, which recognizes the right of all people to establish a link with Cultural Heritage by adopting measures to improve its universal access.
The variety of case studies includes six examples of different elements of interest. We have taken into account cases socially and administratively recognized as important heritage elements, so that all of them are legally protected as Assets of Cultural Interest (BIC), some of them even inserted in groups recognized as World Heritage Sites.
