Event Details

Practices of urban conservation have long been part of the discourse on city building, design and preservation. While conservation mayhave the reputation of being one of the quieter notes in urbanism, rebuilding, protection, interpretation, regeneration and renewal have long played important and shifting roles in the management and design of urban environments large and small. Urban conservation has rarely, though, been at the center of scholarship and urban design practice. Thissymposium, the first in a series envisioned to advance knowledge about urban conservation, explores the history of urban conservation thinking and practice in a wide range of social and historical settings. The symposium proceeds from the hypothesis that urban conservation is a cross-cultural and trans-historical phenomenon of considerable moment and warrants greater research attention.
