President of the Architects; Council of Europe Georg Pendl, who initiated this collective project: "We were delighted to hear the President of the European Commission say: "But this -the renovation wave- is not just an environmental or economic project: it needs to be a new cultural project for Europe“. This can be the start of a game-changing policy, as renovation isn’t seen as a technical issue only, but promotes a holistic approach, not only including the quality of the design, but putting it at the core."
