isc/Technology Seminar tu Delft, the Netherlands, 23 October 2017
The degradation of plastic building components — and claddings in particular — is an increasing challenge in heritage buildings. Research and the development of appropriate strategies for the architectural conservation, restoration and replacement of synthetic building components is still in its infancy. This was reason enough to stage a one-day international seminar, Plastics in Modern Movement Buildings. Conservation and (Re-)design of Synthetic Building Components focusing on the exterior applications in the building envelope and as prefabricated elements. The seminar took place on October 23rd, 2017, at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at TU Delft, the Netherlands.
