Aims and Scope
Climate change is having a profound impact on our practical, technical, and philosophical approaches to building conservation. From mitigation to adaptation to managed loss, conservators are faced with increasingly challenging decisions for the future of our historic built environment. At the same time, it is recognised that many of these buildings offer important lessons from a pre-industrial age. This special issue aims to collate current research into the complex relationship between climate change and built heritage. Contributions are welcomed that consider the technical and philosophical challenges under the sub-themes. Where a paper does not fit under a specified theme or spans more than one, please incorporate a note to that effect in a cover letter with the submission.
