Partly as a sign of its change of name, the Service des sites et monuments nationaux, now the Institut national pour le patrimoine architectural – INPA or National Institute for Architectural Heritage, has just published a book documenting 20 restoration projects on buildings belonging to the rural and urban architectural heritage.
As such, the cultural institute highlights its primary mission, namely the realization and support of works aimed at the conservation and enhancement of our architectural heritage. In this case, the book shows how this heritage can be useful for housing, work and even other functions.
The minister for Culture, Sam Tanson, stressed the importance of citizen participation in the inventorying and classification of buildings. "The new Cultural Heritage Act of the 25th February 2022 intends to encourage collaboration and citizen participation to involve all stakeholders in the preservation of our cultural heritage."
The presentation of the first INPA book took place at the so-called um Stafelter forest house, its restoration by the SSMN is documented in the new publication XX.
Due to the success of the book XII with twelve completed projects on the feudal and fortified heritage, the publication from 2020 has been reissued.
