Item Acesso AbertoA arquitectura regionalista da Galiza(Fundação Serra Henriques, 2018-01) Florentino, RuiA Arquitectura é o resultado de um tempo e de um lugar, do encontro da cultura com a natureza. As circunstâncias regionais estão por isso presentes, de alguma forma, na composição e recepção das obras de Arquitectura. Este livro é um possível estado da arte sobre a Arquitectura do século XX na Galiza. Ainda que a maioria da "paisagem construída" não o evidencie imediatamente, a comunidade entre os meios rural e urbano, que bem caracteriza esta região, permite-lhe ter a esperança de encontrar esse novo "modelo de planeamento", com diversidade de produção, alternativa política e equilíbrio ambiental.

[...] Item Acesso AbertoTerra Europae: Earthen architecture in the European Union(Edizioni ETS, 2011) Correia, Mariana; Dipasquale, Letizia; Mecca, SaverioTerra Europae - Earthen Architecture in the European Union is a scientific publication, resulting from an intensive and valued teamwork of 50 authors that generated exclusive maps and texts from different regions and countries of the European Union. The outcomes were systematically and consistently combined to create a relevant overview of the state-of-art of earthen architecture in Europe. The publication opens with a photography summary of earthen historical heritage and contemporary architecture in Europe today. It presents an overview of 7 European regions, complemented by 27 articles from all European Union countries. To complete this broad publication, and as a result of the scientifi c missions, a comprehensive cartography of European earthen heritage is offered. This book is the result of a common effort gathered by Ecole d'Avignon (France), Escola Superior Gallaecia (Portugal), Universitat Politècnica de València (Spain), Università degli Studi di Firenze (Italy) and CAUE-Conseil d'Architecture, d'Urbanisme et de l'Environnement of Vaucluse (France). European partners in the Culture 2007-2013 programme, through the Terra [In]cognita research project developed between 2009 and 2011. The project gathered experts that contributed to create an awareness of their country's heritage and brought inspiration to launch research, to go beyond and to discover the unrevealed European earthen heritage and contemporary earthen architecture. Item Acesso AbertoVersus: heritage for tomorrow: vernacular knowledge for sustainable architecture(Firenze University Press, 2014) Correia, Mariana; Dipasquale, Letizia; Mecca, SaverioThis scientific publication resulted from an intensive and significant teamwork research, based on the common main aim of establishing key principles, regarding vernacular knowledge and its contribution for sustainable development. Lessons learned from vernacular heritage are systematised through principles that define a wide number of strategies to consider and to integrate for sustainable contemporary architecture. This was possible through the initial establishment of operational definitions, regarding vernacular architecture and sustainable architecture. It was also critical to define a profound reflection concerning the state of the art of environmental, socio-cultural and socio-economic sustainability, as well as resilient vernacular heritage, and the definition of parameters for vernacular sustainability during the 20th Century. Item Acesso AbertoSeismic retrofitting: Learning from vernacular architecture(CRC Press/Balkema, Taylor & Francis Group, 2015) Correia, Mariana; Lourenço, Paulo B.; Varum, HumbertoLocal communities have adapted for centuries to challenging surroundings, resulting from unforeseen natural hazards. Vernacular architecture often reveals very intelligent responses attuned to the environment. Therefore, the question that emerged was: how did local populations prepare their dwellings to face frequent earthquakes? It was to respond to this gap in knowledge, that the SEISMIC-V research project was instigated, and this interdisciplinary international publication was prepared. The research revealed the existence of a local seismic culture, in terms of reactive or preventive seismic resistant measures, able to survive, if properly maintained, in areas with frequent earthquakes. The fundamental contribution and aims of the publication were to enhance: -The disciplinary interest in vernacular architecture; -Its contribution to risk mitigation in responding to natural hazards; -To encourage academic and scientific research collaboration among different disciplines; -To contribute to the improvement of vernacular dwellings, which half of the world’s population still inhabits nowadays. Fifty international researchers and experts presented case studies from Latin America, the Mediterranean, Eastern and Central Asia and the Himalayas region, with reference to 20 countries, i.e. Algeria, Bolivia, Bhutan, Chile, China, Egypt, El Salvador, Greece, Haiti, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Nepal, Nicaragua, Peru, Romania, Taiwan, Turkey and a closer detailed analysis of Portugal. This publication brings together 43 contributions, with new perspectives on seismic retrofitting techniques and relevant data, addressing vernacular architecture; an amazing source of knowledge, and to this day, home to 4 billion people. Item Acesso AbertoConservation in earthen heritage : Assessment and significance of failure, criteria, conservation theory, and strategies(Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2016-02) Correia, MarianaWorldwide, there is a vast but fragile earthen heritage that is barely surviving due to serious damage of the fabric. It is generally believed that natural agents are the overall cause for the decay of earthen heritage. However, when thoroughly evaluating, it can be observed that conservators’ interventions have a major impact, which leads to question current approaches to conservation and the reasons why intervention mistakes are repeated and why successful conservation results are still scarce. The research methodology of this investigation is based in a case study strategy analysing three World Heritage earthen sites, namely Chan Chan in Peru, Aït Ben Haddou in Morocco and Arg-e Bam in Iran. A combination of sources was also used, following a multi-method approach. This book suggests implementing standards for high quality intervention through the definition of criteria for decision-making and indicators of quality and best practice, as well as clarification concerning procedures in the methodology of intervention. It also stresses the importance of conservation theory in earthen heritage conservation, combining theory and practice. In addition, the book recommends an overall strategy in the conservation of earthen heritage, with particular emphasis on an approach that integrates education, awareness, research and preventive conservation. Item Acesso AbertoCultura sísmica local em Portugal(Argumentum, Edições, 2015) Correia, Mariana; Carlos, Gilberto DuarteO projeto ‘SEISMIC-V: Cultura Sismo-Resistente Vernácula em Portugal’ foi desenvolvido sob o apoio e financiamento da FCT – Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (PTDC/ATP- 1 AQI/3934/2012). O Projecto foi coordenado pela ESG| Escola Superior Gallaecia, em parceria com os Departamentos de Engenharia Civil da Universidade do Minho e da Universidade de Aveiro. A investigação realizada pretende contribuir para a identificação de estratégias e de elementos de reforço sismo-resistente, integradas nas culturas construtivas locais. O objectivo de fundo passa pela reflexão acerca da existência de uma Cultura Sísmica Local1 em Portugal. A consolidação desta cultura remete para a implementação sistemática de medidas de prevenção e/ou reação das populações locais, na sequência de ocorrências sísmicas, de média ou alta intensidade, com relativa regularidade. O projeto foi estruturado em cinco fases progressivas, conforme a sua metodologia de investigação: 1- Definição das áreas de estudo, de acordo com o risco sísmico, desenvolvendo em missões de pesquisa e análise preliminar; 2- Caracterização experimental in situ, onde se procedeu ao estudo dos materiais e da sua aplicação, através da comparação de desempenhos de casos representativos; 3- Modelação numérica e estudos paramétricos; 4- Identificação e definição dos erros mais frequentes, assim como das soluções, de reforço sismo-resistente, mais eficientes; 5- Sistematização da informação recolhida e produzida, através da caracterização das soluções analisadas. O presente manual apresenta uma síntese estruturada da Fase 4, no âmbito da disseminação de resultados e considerações gerais do projeto, adoptando uma abordagem de teor operativo. Item Acesso Restrito3D Past: guidelines and strategies for maintenance of vernacular architecture in World Heritage sites(ESG: Escola Superior Gallaecia; UPV: Universitat Politècnica de Valéncia; UNIFI: Università degli Studi di Firenze, 2020) Correia, Mariana[European research project]. This collective work gathers three European universities and integrates contributions from all the project’s partners. In addition to the editors, the main contributors are: ESG / Escola Superior Gallaecia, Portugal; UPV / Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain; UNIFI / Università degli Studi di Firenze Item Acesso AbertoFrom Vernacular to World Heritage(Firenze University Press, 2021) Dipasquale, Letizia; Mecca, Saverio; Correia, MarianaSince 2006, Escola Superior Gallaecia (Portugal), University of Florence (Italy), and Universitat Politècnica de València (Spain), with partners as CRAterre-ENSAG (France), the University of Cagliari (Italy), and Ecole d’Avignon (France), have been working together, for the enhancement and protection of vernacular heritage and earthen architecture. As key-institutions in the area, they share high standards and common values, in order to address and achieve fundamental research, capacity building, learning experiences, relevant outcomes, contributing for a broader and deeper knowledge on vernacular heritage and earthen architecture. Several projects were developed among the partners, throughout the years. This was just possible by running together for European Union funded research, and successfully achieving it, by undertaking relevant contribution to knowledge, as well as comprehensive scientific dissemination. This was the case of the following projects: Terra Incognita (2006-2008); Earthen Domes & Habitat – A building tradition between East and West (2008-2010); Terra (in)cognita/Terra Europae (2009-2011: culture-terra-incognita.org); VerSus – From Vernacular Heritage to Sustainable Architecture (2012- 2014: esg.pt/versus); 3DPAST – Living and virtual visiting European World Heritage (2016-2020: esg.pt/3dpast); and VERSUS+ | Heritage for People (2019-2023: esg.pt/versus-plus). Other key-projects have been also developed through National Funding Agencies for Science, Research and Technology as it was the case of: Seismic-V – Local Seismic Culture in Portugal (esg.pt/seismic-v); PRIN – Scientific, experimental and tacit knowledge and conservation actions of Earthen Architectural Heritage in Southern Italy; ResTAPIA – Restoration of rammed earth in Iberia Peninsula (www.restapia. es); SOStierra – Restoration and Rehabilitation of traditional earthen architecture in Iberia Peninsula (sostierra.blogs.upv.es) and RISK-Terra (https://riskterra.blogs.upv.es); among others. The focus of the distinct researches was to address: a state of the art of earthen architecture in Europe (both Terra Incognita projects); to define principles from vernacular heritage that contribute to sustainable architecture (VerSus project & VERSUS+ project); to enhance the quality of vernacular architecture and its World Heritage character (3DPAST); to distinguish seismic retrofitting in vernacular architecture, in order to pro-actively strength dwellings facing earthquakes (Seismic-V).
