The architecture departmentThe architecture department of the Reykjavik City Museum conducts research on the architectural history of Reykjavik and makes studies of individual houses and parts of the city for the City Planning Office and other municipal committees and for private individuals as well. One project has been the compiling of a comprehensive building register for the museum´s database, which includes details relating to the architectural history of all the buildings in Reykjavik.
This register is the basis for preserving the city´s architectural heritage and information is available to those requesting it. Service to institutions and individuals has been greatly increased in recent years. This applies both to the renovation of individual buildings and studies of buildings in whole areas of the city.
