CTinHS – 07 | Digitalization of Cultural Heritage

On April 18th, 2024, will be held the 7th Current Topics in Heritage Science on the Zoom platform.

We’ll meet the assistant Prof. Katja Malovrh Rebec, PhD, and Head of The Department and Laboratory for Building Physics at the Slovenian National Building and Civil Engineering Institute (ZAG).

Digitalization of cultural heritage: HBIM and OpenBIM will be the topic of the 7th lecture.

The speaker Katja Malovrh Rebec will talk about:

  • The role of digitization in the preservation and enhancement of cultural heritage through advanced technologies like Heritage Building Information Modeling (HBIM).
  • The integration of Artificial Intelligence (AI), scan-to-BIM technologies, virtual/augmented reality (VR/AR), drones and digital knowledge repositories, including citizen science initiatives, to improve the accessibility and preservation of built cultural heritage.
  • The reasons behind the widespread adoption of HBIM and openBIM, supported by ISO 16739:2013, as the most common ontology in the field.
  • Practical case studies, including the conservation plan for a protected seventeenth-century residential building and the digital representation (BIM and hologram) of the tallest building in the capital as it was erected in the 1980s, to illustrate the application of these technologies.
  • The exploration of Model View Definition (MVD) and energy use modelling coupled with environmental footprint calculations (Life Cycle Assessment – LCA) for sustainable building practices.
  • Discussion on future trends in digitization for construction and cultural heritage, focusing on innovative skill sets for future experts and new knowledge domains.

Registration is free and required at the IPERION HS form.

The online event duration is 45’, broken down into:

  • 30-minute presentation
  • 15-minute interactive question (Q&A) 

Current Topics in Heritage Science series are organized by emerging professionals of HS Academy, a collaborative initiative between IPERION HS and E-RIHS.
