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.

Saving built heritage starts from the roof
Browse our crafts-professionals specialised in roof products:
The secret life of roofs – Ermentini Architetti
Roofs are a too often forgotten part of the buildings, however they play the main function in the buildings, the shelter. The shy restoration of the roof of the church of S. Andrea in Brignano near Bergamo is an example of the application of scheduled maintenance.
Architecture is about the choice of materials
Lime, a never equaled material – Abian Curbelo
Irreplaceable since the beginning, used by men of the Antiquity, limestone is an extraordinary stone which, when subjected to fire, loses some of its properties to acquire more precious ones.
Architecture is about technique
The Catalan Vault – Andra Ritisan & Charlotte Pierre
The “Boveda Catalana”. Deeply rooted in the Mediterranean, this technique dates back to antiquity when Arabs and Romans used similar building techniques.
PARTICIPATE IN OUR SURVEY ON ENDANGERED CRAFTS
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
