Valencia Historic Center. Eight centuries of residential architecture

Valencia Historic Center. Eight centuries of residential architecture

This 18-years-long research has analyzed the historical housing in Valencia, not necessarily monumental but also humbly ones, from 1240 to 1940, studying the built and material culture and technology that hides behind the residential architecture in this long period, from the rammed earth and brick walls to the renderings, windows, carpentry, balconies, grids, interiors, decoration, pavements, entrances, floors, roofs, etc. This study establishes indications, patterns and chronotypologies in order to identify the age and manufacture of a wall, a floor, a glass, a door, a hinge, etc. throughout these eight centuries. It is a sort of historic built grammar of Valencia, with its syntax and architectural vocabulary, as well as the traditional patterns of “writing” on the palimpsest of the city, with the final objective of acquiring the necessary knowledge in order to raise awareness and sensibility towards the conservation of the built tissue of the city.
