The MAP laboratory works explores an interdisciplinary research area: heritage as facts, as knowledge and as know-how. While the architectural scale remains a privileged point of entry, it is no longer the unit’s exclusive scale of observation. The partnerships forged by the laboratory through recurring links or one-off research projects and training schemes reflect its desire to open up to both academic and societal players.
