talk: Edwin Verweij: Tracing historical colour schemes on building and interiors
Ahnensaal, Bundesdenkmalamt, Hofburg, 1010 Wien
Two European initiatives have led to innovations in the architectural paint research (APR) working field: a European standard and an APR software application. Both developments aim to standardise the outlining of projects, the basic procedures and deliverables to improve the quality of APR projects. It will provide for making ‘informed conservation decisions’ that will positively influence the long-term care of built heritage objects.
Quality awareness, especially in those areas where previously monopolists were active on a national level, can now be extended across national European borders, making the outcome of APR projects and their reporting compliant with a common quality and comparable with international requirements.
