Collections Care, Human Comfort, and Climate Control: A Case Study at the Casa de Rui Barbosa Museum

GCI Scientist Shin Maekawa at work in the cellar space where the bulk of the climate control system is situated, away from public view. A series of ducts connect the ventilation and dehumidification units in the cellar to the library space above. Supply air ducts do not require thermal insulation as the air temperature consistently exceeds dew point temperature, eliminating the potential for condensation. Photo: Claudia Carvalho.
