Sustainable architecture and built heritage


The built heritage has many assets (evidence of old building techniques, old materials etc.), but also constraints. These constraints are particularly evident in terms of energy renovation. This session will review the methods and tools aimed at integrating the requirements of the ecological transition, particularly concerning renovation, but also the difficulties encountered. It will also shed light on different modes of more sustainable construction.

Speakers :

- Annelies Cosaert, from the sustainability unit of IRPA (Royal Institute for Artistic Heritage) - Belgium

- Danilo Forleo, Head of Preventive Conservation, Musée national des châteaux de Versailles et de Trianon

- Ning Liu, architect, co-founder of the company Building for Climate

- Laurent Ricard, Head of the Building and Security Department, Conservation Centre of the Louvre Museum

The session will be moderated by Ann Bourgès, Secretary General of ICOMOS France and leader of the "climate change" working group, and Hélène Vassal, member of the ICTOP board and Director of Collections Support at the Louvre Museum.

It will be held simultaneously in French, English and Spanish. It will be recorded and rebroadcast by ICOM France and its partners.
