survey and knowledge for the historical architecture
Topics:

The scientific activity turns to the assertion of the drawing, not only regarded as an instrument of communication but, principally as an indispensable instrument for the analysis of the environment and the existing historical manufactured based on thematic of: survey, architecture  city drawing representation, as well as on the typological characters. The principal study-thematics are: buildings and public squares, materials and constructive techniques, for the conservation of the cultural properties besides for the cataloguing and the reclaiming of monuments.
