Description:
„As in most countries of the region, Romanian structural engineer training focused and still focuses on modern technologies and materials only. However historic building conservation requires a specialised theoretical and practical knowledge of traditional structures as well. The primary aim of the yearly conference series initiated in 1997 in Cluj is to promote the exchange of professional information and experience between experts, as well as to organise the long-term Central-European research of historic structures. The event is the only regular professional meeting of historic structure conservation engineers, which has developed in the past five years into a high quality professional forum.” (Imola Kirizsán, project director).

In the frame of the conference a thematic exhibition took place in Tranzit House, with the title The Aesthetics of Structures.
