Buildings designed by architects today are accessible, they must be. In the same way that they are luminous, stable, sustainable, etc. Only then will they be beautiful. And what can we do with this quality, which we consider indissoluble from architecture itself, with heritage buildings that are untouchable to us from other times and from other sensibilities?
This book attempts to address the accessibility of heritage architecture from a scientific point of view. It establishes guidelines, a system, for intervening in any historic monument, historic complex, historic garden, historic site or archaeological zone.
The book arises from a research work initiated under the perspective of the Faro Convention, which recognises the right of all people to establish a link with Cultural Heritage by adopting measures to improve its universal accessibility.
