Heritage is not only related to past, but also to our own time: heritage is about being selective on past artifacts, memories, traditions relevant for present identity and belonging to particular socio-cultural context. Heritage sites are “historical witnesses”, but they are also subjects to inevitable change over time.
What do places of heritage witness of our own epoch?
I am an architect, working and investigating about and around cultural heritage for a decade. This blog is an informal, but important methodological tool to complement, document and dynamize my current research process.
