The Surfaces of Architecture. Some Critical Issues
This work reflects on the architectural surfaces conservation problem. This is a very delicate issue at the center of a complex theoretical and practical debate. The main issues revolve around notable discontinuities between theory and operational practice. Although the positive value of the mutations that figurative expression assumes with the passage of time has now been acquired by the culture of restoration it is often easy to forget that restoration means reviving the material architecture without violent changes while respecting its lived aspect over time.
