Without the traditional crafts that have given rise to the material heritage that we admire today, its conservation in the long term would be doomed to failure. Implementing the project has made it possible bring many artisans together, in addition to also helping to foster recognition and respect for these trades amongst the various agents who are responsible for preserving Spain’s heritage. On this platform, freely accessed on redmaestros.com, information about over 400 of the most outstanding artisans specialized in different crafts of traditional construction can already be found. Around 2,500 professionals have been identified and their work has been evaluated. This initiative has been developed by INTBAU (International Network of Traditional Building, Architecture and Urbanism) whose patron and founder is H.R.H. the Prince of Wales, thanks to the support of the Richard H. Driehaus Charitable Lead Trust and the collaboration of the Spanish Cultural Heritage Institute (IPCE) and the Rafael Manzano Prize for New Traditional Architecture.
