(NL) Verslag expertenmeeting 2 met Susan Macdonald



In this lecture series, four renowned experts will address these questions on the basis of their experience within the field of conservation and preservation. Despite the differences, their approach has in common that it focuses less on conserving what has been built than on exploring the future potential of our architectural heritage. What can be the role of our architectural heritage in the debate about sustainable urbanization, demographic change and cultural diversity? How can conservation become an innovative practice and contribute to facing these challenges?
