Newsletter – Heritage Architecture on madineurope



Publication date



Mad'in Europe's commitment to heritage is constantly evolving. For our 10th anniversary, we have launched a new platform that also welcomes architects working with craftspeople on built heritage preservation.

As our aim is to bring together the players who help our tangible and intangible heritage to evolve and innovate, we now welcome architects who specialise in safeguarding built heritage.

The collaboration between architects and crafts professionals is crucial to preserving a heritage that reflects the richness and diversity of our culture. Discover the first architects who joined our portal, their work, their stories and some of the craft trades without which this heritage could not exist.

Future for Religious Heritage (FRH) and Mad’in Europe want to highlight the importance of preserving traditional heritage crafts and passing them on to new generations. We have joined forces and expertise to devise a survey to better understand the heritage crafts scene in Europe in terms of practice and knowledge.

These are the last days to participate in this survey which aims at gaining a better understanding of built heritage crafts in terms of practice and knowledge.

The survey is addressed to three types of respondents:

  • crafts people specialised in cultural heritage conservation
  • architects, curators, conservation surveyors, conservation engineers and owners of heritage buildings
  • schools and craft training establishments
