Values and challenges in the conservation of the built heritage in stone

10:00h, ETSA Lecture Hall

The dry stone is a traditional building technique related mainly to the rural world. The large number and variety of items built with this technique constitute a rich heritage that has defined the image of much of our territory. That meeting aims to reflect on the challenges involved in the preservation of these elements from the architectural discipline, highlighting the diversity of solutions closely linked to the territory in which we find ourselves.
