Bulgaria is a country with rich historical heritage and cultural diversity. The protection and conservation of cultural and historical monuments is vital to preserving the national identity of Bulgarians, the relationship with the land and traditional culture as an essential part of his life and means of survival. It should be noted Bulgarian modest contribution to the preservation of 7 (according to UNESCO) cultural monuments and two nature reserves listed as World Heritage. In the center of the Bulgarian capital - Sofia are located over 1400 cultural and historical monuments that highlight the civilizational and cultural outlook of the capital of Bulgaria. In terms of its rich heritage Sofia has a unique resource of complex nature, characterized by: High cultural value of individual layers historic and outstanding examples of architectural and building ensembles of the era of ancient and medieval periods, and samples of construction and architecture of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries; The rich historical stratification of the environment is predetermined by the interaction between the West and the Orient in a European cultural crossroads, expressed with style, religious and ethnic pluralism. All these features and wealth of construction periods and techniques pose specific requirements on construction techniques for decisions on conservation and restoration.This work presents some specific construction design in terms of approaches that resolve fundamental problems. These approaches are supported by rapidly evolving technologies in the building using various composite materials, taking into account the specific requirements of the treated material.

Constructive Solutions to the Conservation of Cultural Heritage

Chicago, Illinois

Bulgaria is a country with rich historical heritage and cultural diversity. The protection and conservation of cultural and historical monuments is vital to preserving the national identity of Bulgarians, the relationship with the land and traditional culture as an essential part of his life and means of survival. It should be noted Bulgarian modest contribution to the preservation of 7 (according to UNESCO) cultural monuments and two nature reserves listed as World Heritage. In the center of the Bulgarian capital - Sofia are located over 1400 cultural and historical monuments that highlight the civilizational and cultural outlook of the capital of Bulgaria. In terms of its rich heritage Sofia has a unique resource of complex nature, characterized by: High cultural value of individual layers historic and outstanding examples of architectural and building ensembles of the era of ancient and medieval periods, and samples of construction and architecture of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries; The rich historical stratification of the environment is predetermined by the interaction between the West and the Orient in a European cultural crossroads, expressed with style, religious and ethnic pluralism. All these features and wealth of construction periods and techniques pose specific requirements on construction techniques for decisions on conservation and restoration.This work presents some specific construction design in terms of approaches that resolve fundamental problems.
