description
Scarce records are available about the mineral building materials used to render and decorate buildings originating from the second half of the 19th century to World War I., a period characterized by the coexistence of traditional and modern techniques and products. Knowledge of their composition is however a prerequisite for the due appreciation and proper handling in the preservation of the architectural surfaces under consideration. The research project MEMOCARE, a bilateral cooperation between Romania and Austria, is seeking to shed light on the various materials employed in Romania, by analyzing samples taken exemplarily from building façades in several Romanian cities and towns. Our contribution aims at discussing the general project approach as well as the analytical procedure and the results achieved so far.
