ANCIEN MANÈGE building pathologies mapping

Building pathologies mapping

On Friday 19th of June arrived the building pathologies mappings of the façades of the Ancien Manège in Geneva. Also realised by ARCHEOTECH, The use of this non-contact and non-destructive method allows to identify cracks, deformations, erosion or holes. As each material has wavelength dependent reflection characteristics, the method also allows to identify humidity, mosses, lichens or other pathologies present in the building fabric. This is a very important study for the preservation of buildings and for the choice of the best technique for their restoration.
