Conserving Living Urban Heritage: Theoretical Considerations of Continuity and Change”
26th – 28th November, 2015, Bangalore, India
The histories and theories that influence preservation practices globally today largely draw on Western European experience and intellectual traditions as well as international normative standards. The objective of the proposed conference is to examine theoretical and philosophical approaches to conserving urban heritage in cities where historic forms and meanings intersect with cultural practices on the one hand, and contemporary needs as places for living and working on the other. Reflections on the principles of the Venice Charter and other normative documents including the Historic Urban Landscape Recommendation will be relevant in this context.
