The dissertation has as its theme a critical analysis of documentation, survey and diagnosis procedures of the built heritage, taking as object of studies the Museu Paulista (São Paulo, Brazil). The comparison of the techniques and procedures already adopted, as well as the results obtained and expected by 3D laser scanning survey, is of great importance for understanding the effectiveness of these methods, their contributions and limits, in order to preserve the cultural heritage. Moreover, as a critical process, the analysis aims to provide inputs for historiography, from the questioning of documents, bibliography and the object of study itself.The Museu Paulista, since 2013, when it was closed to the public, goes through a series of studies aimed at its recovery. The closure of the museum for a long period and the studies that have been carried out are largely due to the fact that, over the last decades, little concern has been given to the materiality of the building, which houses a large collection dedicated to the history of Brazilian society and the city of São Paulo between the sixteenth and twentieth centuries. In addition to structural and facade diagnoses, already carried out and in progress, additional surveys are planned, such as 3D laser scanning, in view of the emergency recovery context in which the building is currently located.The issue addressed and discussed in this dissertation will be based on the possibilities of analysis and comparison of the documentation, survey and diagnostic techniques used in the projects carried out for the recovery of the Museu Paulista, in order to discuss the relevance, the challenges and the limits of these procedures as preliminary steps of intervention in any cultural heritage.
