Abstract


Historical and experimental research of the Canarian churches built during the Spanish conquest of the archipelago which evolved until the eighteenth century, according to the hypothesis that wants to confirm the existence of passive strategies in the built heritage which is still standing today. From a technical perspective, it is made an analysis of the environment of each building. It carried out a critical analysis of external conditions that includes climatic, bioclimatic and orographic factors and social factors, which affect on the Canarian ecclesiastical architectural typologies. Once it is completed the identification and preliminary study of each case, every church is individually analyzed from assays "in situ" and representation and digital simulation. It’ve been made climatic studies, 2D digitalisations and thermal and acoustic "in situ" assays, using, among other tools, a thermal camera and a sound pressure level meter respectively.
