Designing the future of the past [Day 2]

A survey across the contemporary international debate

How to preserve (or not) what we inherited is a crucial contemporary issue to shape a sustainable and desirable future. Heritage borders are now more blurred than ever, and even what is not recognized as heritage can be considered a preservationist concern. Furthermore, the adaptation of existing buildings has increased in architectural practice and theoretical production during the last few decades. On the other hand, the legacy from the past might be considered either a positive or negative commons, depending on the social, cultural, economic, environmental context. The seminar aims to give an overview of current leading theories in the international debate, to promote a dialogue across disciplines on the reuse of urban legacy, heritage, and landscape.
