Presentation

The call is now open for the proposal of new papers for the forthcoming number of the academic journal CADERNOS DO ARQUIVO MUNICIPAL.

Construction materials help to define the image of cities and places, steading the idea of a built heritage connected to a physical, social and cultural environment. These materials include coverings by stone, brick, wood, pigments, metal, a sort of varied materials that come from nature which human societies transform giving them life in different shapes, ways and styles, and then from a great number of mixtures, uses and combinations is created cultural value by distinguishing heritage places. How can we appreciate fruitfully the urban heritage regarding building materials of historical interest?

Their creative use cannot be apart from the development of cities, opened new perspectives for their presence in the urban mesh and helped to define landscapes worthy of recognition as heritage. This reading proposes to highlight these materials as sensitivity references to an attentive comprehension of the urban built heritage. Not recording historical-artistic patterns, but correlations that point to processes, memories, styles, shapes, techniques, compositions, textures, knowledge that witness heritage environments from their relations with society, culture, geography and history.
