SLCT – Stone Analysis Explained

16 August - 09:30 - 12:00

Many conservation projects require the replacement of structurally compromised stone and will require stone analysis and matching in order to find currently available sources of compatible replacement stone. Stone analysis may also be required to gain listed building consent or to meet funder’s requirements. Simply undertaking stone analysis by petrographic means is only half the story and missing out on vital information on the physical characteristics of stone, for example density, water absorption, porosity and capillary coefficient can lead to…

SLCT – Mortar Analysis Explained

17 August - 09:30 - 12:15

This seminar will allow attendees to gain a greater understanding of the process of mortar analysis and to be able to understand and use…

AMPS New Delhi: Architecture, History, and the Smart City

13 March 2022 - 15 March 2022

Smart, intelligent, digital, ubiquitous. While star architects develop ‘spectacle architecture’ for example, property developers produce gated communities, and urban planners grapple with urban expansion. This all happens while conservationists dedicate themselves to preserving the past and historians continue exploring former lives of our ancient towns.

However, each of these places, buildings and products had, at their inception, social and cultural…
