Research, Planning and Interventions Guide for Historic Roof Structures with Baroque Character
Historic structures generally and historic timber (roof) structures especially are not included into structural engineering curricula, in Romania. Roof structures and timber structures in general were also for a long time totally absent from all from construction and architecture university and craftsmen tuition curricula. The information gathered by dedicated professionals should be offered to young professionals, or those seeking specialisation in built heritage conservation, in a structured way: guidelines / handbooks, to prevent non-professional approaches. The Guide is to be finished in 2010 as integrated part of the PhD thesis of structural engineer D. Makay, supervised by Professor B. Szabó: Transylvanian Baroque Roof Structures.
