Layers of Understanding, Paperback / softback Book

Layers of Understanding Paperback / softback

Edited by Helen Hughes


These are the proceedings of an English Heritage national seminar which was organised to address growing concerns about the variable quality of architectural paint research currently being carried out.

The book describes and explains its role in understanding and managing historic buildings.

The contributions contained in this book are designed to promote the development of standards and guidelines for use by clients and consultants, helping to shape the development of this vital new discipline.

It therefore contains edited transcripts of the ground breaking discussion sessions on the proposed English Heritage guidelines and other important issues.

The statutory requirements relating to painted interiors of listed buildings is another very problematical issue which has been considered in detail.

In addition, guidance is provided on commissioning paint research and the pitfalls to avoid.

The book will be essential reading for paint researched, architects, surveyors, conservation officers and all practitioners involved in commissioning paint research for historic buildings.
