4th Multilateral Exchange of the RANN at Jugendstilsenteret in Alesund – on 21 March 2014


“The preservation of Art Nouveau in a changing environment”

Nature has been a great source of inspiration in the development of Art Nouveau. The style itself constitutes a substantial part of our heritage and cultural environment. In many European cities, the Art Nouveau buildings are perceived as a symbol of modernity, national or regional identity, as well as a great opportunity for tourism and business.

After decades of struggling for preservation and conservation, the owners or managers of such buildings now have to face new environmental challenges : climate changes represent a threat for safeguarding heritage buildings and materials (problems of insulation, humidity, modification of woodworks, rise of sea level, rise in temperature, etc.) ; the migration of populations to cities also leads to radical alterations of urban landscapes (division of heritage buildings, high constructions, estate pressure in the suburbs areas, modification of the size of gardens of the Art Nouveau buildings) and the resulting urban pollution is harmful for preserving this type of buildings and their environment.

How to face these phenomena? In this context, what are the means used and solutions found locally to preserve Art Nouveau buildings?

Free participation, compulsory registration
