Articles - Research Repository, Catalogue and Archive for Architectural History and Building Archaeology


Building archaeology (Historische Bauforschung) is an internationally renowned methodology for investigating historic buildings in research, heritage preservation and planning. It is a hands-on process which documents the geometry, construction, materiality, usage, form, and meaning of buildings and makes it possible to trace the processes of their creation throughout the various layers of time embodied in their fabric. Despite the extensive use of digital tools within its workflows building archeology has not yet embraced the digital age as firmly as other disciplines. While the research community has long been interconnected via societies and conferences, there still is no digital platform for the overarching valorisation of scientific building documentations., a research data repository, catalogue and archive for building archeology in the German speaking area, seeks to provide an innovative answer to this urgent desideratum.
