Workshop Heritage, City and Territory

The workshop addresses, from different approaches, the study and analysis of the heritage that conforms the cities and defines the territory.

A line of work has an instrumental character for the careful knowledge of the architectural heritage: it carries out surveys, with state-of-the-art techniques, to guarantee the bases of a future intervention.

Services are allowed for:

  • Surveys of heritage buildings and historical centers, generating graphic and digital documentation in CAD 2D, 3D models, orthoimages and photogrammetry.
  • Upgrades for structural analysis with laser scanner.
  • Virtual tours for tourist promotion.
