about this item

This collection offers a comprehensive selection of journal articles and book chapters that provide readers with a complete overview of conservation in built environments, collating the canonical and cutting-edge writings on the subject in one essential reference work. Each volume begins with an editorial introduction by the Editor explaining the context and choice of contents, with the set organised thematically looking at the philosophy, history, regulation and techniques.

Sections will consider the value and significance of heritage, the types of environments with conservation concerns, vernacular buildings, the challenges of national codes, and specific aspects of conservation work such as maintaining masonry and roofing. International in scope and reflecting various approaches in the best scholarship, this will be of key interest for researchers and students in architecture, construction, heritage and urban design but also planning and geography.
