Fraunhofer Center Leipzig publishes a brochure with the results of the research on the impact of climate change on historical buildings
With the brochure "Climate for culture – built heritage in times of climate change", the Fraunhofer Center Leipzig highlights the research results of the EU project Climate for Culture. Climate for Culture is a Fraunhofer Center Leipzig lighthouse project. Over the past five years, an international collaboration of 27 partners from 14 countries has examined the impact of climate change on the interiors of and art collections in historical buildings.
The brochure presents the results of the research project, best practice examples and innovative tools including potential adaptation strategies for historical buildings such as Neuschwanstein Castle or the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome, a handbook for energy efficient air-conditioning or a software for the digitalization of analogue data in an illustrative way. The brochure can be downloaded for free from the Fraunhofer Center Leipzig website and the project website www.climateforculture.eu.
The EU project Climate for Culture was jointly coordinated by the Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics IBP and the Leipzig Fraunhofer Center Leipzig.
