Abstract

In architecture, the sustainability paradigm is able to evaluate how the physical transformations can influence the natural and anthropical environment. That is why it is important to control these transformations overall. With particular regards to new buildings, the monitoring can move from the technological resources, that can be apt from the constructive and environmental point of view, to the social and economical ones. The same parameters used to define the environmental impact assessment for new buildings are employed to judge the sustainability in the conservation project of historical buildings. Conservation is a sustainable approach, because is finalized to minimize the restoration and to maximize the level of knowledge about the construction. According to the new given definition of conservation, the sustainability can be defined as optimization of the activities connected to safeguard and to restoration of Cultural Heritage. Sustainability therefore is a process to balance conveniently resources and tasks: collection and organization of the data; management of the human and economical assets; valorisation and usability; use of the material resources (from the compatibility, reversibility and possible disposal); conception of structural and conservative solution that shall be controlled during the time. It is, also , important, to verify which barriers could be broken by the development of the optimization/sustainable process. The diffusion of the specific conservation culture that embraces the management of the cultural heritage might be the main one. The present aims analyze, also by examples, how the above mentioned process could be applied into conservation project and the integration among “classical” procedures and rating systems.
