Choosing the Green Way - Sustainable Strategies in Cultural Heritage


HTW Berlin symposium, May 4th 2015 at the Berlin Medical History Museum

Discussions about the responsibility for climate efficiency have gained high significance also for cultural heritage institutions and their multiple stakeholders. Specifically, costs and benefits of high energy consumptions, which are needed to climatize museums and historic buildings, are strongly focused within this context. A recognizable increase of projects and publications considering the topic as well as emerging administrative or technical solutions, demonstrate the need for in-depth research on the subject.

In particular, the approach to optimize energy consumptions of museums and collections by questioning often narrowly defined but required conservation standards, must lead to intense discussions and systematic research. In fact, the casusal relationship of outdoor climate, building envelope and indoor climate in museums and historic buildings is well understood. In contrast, there is still incomplete knowledge about the direct interference of highly sensitive object materials with distinctive climate fluctuations.

Cultural heritage institutions are willing to take on more responsibility for the use of resources. Therefore, the symposium will focus on the conditioning of museum climates, storage planning and management issues. Based on current research findings the event will specificially enhance the discussion with innovative positions towards Choosing the Green Way.

Venue

The Berlin Museum of Medical History, actually Virchow founded, former Pathological Museum, is situated on the campus of Charité Mitte. Hosting an extensive collection of 300 years medical history, the museum also offers the historical ruin of Virchow's auditorium, which will provide the perfect framework for the event.
