Resumé

Long-term preservation of information about artifacts of the built environment is crucial to provide the ability to retrofit legacy buildings, to preserve cultural heritage, to ensure security precautions, to enable knowledge-reuse of design and engineering solutions and to guarantee the legal liabilities of all stakeholders (e.g. designer, engineers).

Efforts for the digital preservation of information have come a long way and a number of mature methods, frameworks, guidelines and software systems are at the disposal of librarians and archivists. However, the focus of these developments has primarily been on textual and audio-visual media types. With the recent paradigm shift in architecture and construction from analog 2D plans and scale models to digital 3D information models of buildings, long-term preservation efforts must turn their attention to this new type of data. Currently, no existing approach is able to provide a secure and efficient long-term preservation solution covering the broad spectrum of 3D architectural data, while at the same time taking into account the demands of institutional collectors like architecture libraries and archives as well as those of the private sector including building industry SMEs, owners, operators and public stakeholders.
In this paper, an overview of the challenges of the multi-faceted domain of digital preservation in the built environment is provided. As a contribution to possible solutions to these challenges, the roadmap of the FP7 ICT-2011-9 project “DURAARK - Durable Architectural Knowledge” is presented. Initial preliminary results of the interdisciplinary working groups within this project ranging from the ingest and storage of voluminous sets of low-level point-cloud data from laser scans to semantically consistent descriptions of heterogeneous building products and their long-term preservation are introduced and discussed.
