Architectural Heritage Research o la profundización del conocimiento del patrimonio arquitectónico

La oferta imasd de la UGR revela un trabajo profuso en esta materia que te invitamos a conocer. El campo de investigación parte de las diversas fuentes directas como el estudio de los archivos históricos, terminando con el análisis de la obra edificada a través de la captura masiva de datos y, especialmente, a través del escáner láser terrestre (TLS). Nos fijamos en universidades catalanas como UIC Barcelona, la UPC y la URV que, de igual modo, unen teoría y rehabilitación del patrimonio arquitectónico, teoría de la restauración y expresión gráfica hasta los nuevos métodos proyectuales de los algoritmos arquitectónicos. El ámbito de investigación se centra en los edificios existentes desde el románico hasta principios del siglo XX, tal y como lo demuestran las diferentes tesis doctorales realizadas y dirigidas por los miembros del grupo de investigación. Tienen una oferta que hacerte.
