Heritage 21
Manifesto

Since the late 1960s, heritage discourse has progressively shifted its position from a ‘preservation framework’ through to a ‘conservation framework’ and on to a ‘re-purposing  framework’. The preservation framework regards individual monuments as having intrinsic, universal and immutable values that need to be protected from spatial development. It tends to make the saving of the heritage object or place more important than finding a societal re-use for it.
