Recent research has proved that the soiling of building facades can lead to physical damage as well as spoiling the visual appearance, and adversely affecting the value of the building. The RILEM Report on the soiling and cleaning of building facades examines all aspects of the cleaning of facades which are subject to soiling by both biological and non-biological agencies. The findings from the Report suggest that all buildings will be prone to soiling, and some because of their design will be difficult to clean due to restricted access. Architects will therefore need to accept that certain areas of a facade will remain dirty and, by careful choice of materials and details, attempt to ensure that the building can carry this dirt without being physically or visually harmed. The contributors are international authorities working in this field. Their Report gives advice to all those who need to know how best to approach the problems connected with the soiling and cleaning of building facades.

"Olinda was the first major Portuguese urban nucleus in the new lands of America. The cultural roots of the city blossomed through the religious processions, the liturgical manifestations, the Carnival parades, the folkloric expressions and the creations of its artists and popular handicraft makers, both native to the city and coming from outside - all of which contributed to further strengthening its tourist potential. Olinda's historical centre has the largest concentration of the city's urban cultural heritage. It consisted of buildings and green areas of an outstanding architectural, historical, archaeological, ethnographic, aesthetic and socio-cultural value. Its 16th century monuments, along with its architectural and urban setting, which bear witness to its 471 years of age, give Olinda the characteristics of a city which is alive and in a continuous evolutionary process." "The historical site of Olinda covers the hills and the low areas adjacent to the sea, where the first settlements were established and where the monuments, the centuries old houses and the narrow, steep and sinuous streets are to be found. Olinda is the most important tourist and cultural attraction of the Brazilian Northeast. In 1982, the Historical Site of Olinda was placed on UNESCO's World Heritage List, which raised national and international interest in our city. This has contributed to improving its opportunities and economic development, but most of all, to publicizing the immensely rich, diversified and creative cultural production of its inhabitants, revealing Olinda's hospitable and determined character, historically forged through the encounter and intermingling of peoples from the "four corners" of the world and in the libertarian struggles that occurred here." - Luciana Santos, Mayor of Olinda.
For several decades now, the Dutch Government has been involved in stimulating and facilitating the restoration and conservation of cultural heritage overseas. First primarily related to properties and sites of the former colonial period, but over time the focus broadened, looking at the field of cultural heritage, which is being addressed as part of strategies of socio-economic development and sustainability. During this period attention also has gradually shifted from the establishment of inventories to actual interventions in architectural objects and urban setting, while currently the transmission of knowledge and skills in restoration and conservation is a key element in Dutch government-sponsored projects and programmes. It is important to take stock of recent restoration and conservation projects overseas, which have a significant Dutch involvement either technically or financially, and to establish actual trends.With this overview, issues such as the feasibility of integrated conservation, conservation as a social process (with broad stakeholder involvement) demand driven conservation projects at the local level versus master planning on a regional level, and the importance of capacity building, are to be discussed and evaluated. Next to establishing new, or a change in, directions for professionals in the field, the Dutch Government will gain insight in the viability of current policies guiding support and funding for restoration and conservation activities overseas. This book contains comments and recommendations on the issues mentioned above, supplemented by richly illustrated papers on a diverse range of restoration and conservation projects, ranging from the Caribbean Sea in the West to Yemen and India in the East.
