1.Current Status of Historic Urban Landscapes in Asia and the World
Before Historic Urban Landscape (HUL) approaches can be implemented, comprehensive assessments of a city’s natural, cultural, and human resources must be undertaken. Systematic recording, historical research, and documentation are essential, especially in urban areas, where landscapes change on a daily basis. Which places can be considered as Historic Urban Landscapes in the region? What unique challenges arise in attempting to record and document Historic Urban Landscapes? This theme explores examples of cities where the Historic Urban Landscape approach may be applicable and relevant documentation work of both tangible and intangible heritage.
2.Approaches in Action
The Historic Urban Landscape concept is relatively new in the field of cultural heritage preservation.What does it offer that previous models and frameworks lack? If managed properly within a HUL framework, urban heritage can act as a catalyst forsocio-economic developmentthrough tourism, commercialuse, and higher land and property values, thereby providing therevenues needed to pay formaintenance and restoration. Before this can be achieved, however, awareness must be raised about the concept, for which both general and context-specific implementation strategies must be developed. This theme investigates ideas for increasing knowledge on the concept and putting safeguarding plans into action.
3. Participatory Methods and the Historic Urban Landscapes Concept
Successful and sustainable Historic Urban Landscape preservation efforts require collaboration across many stakeholder groups. Local voices and values that contribute to a city’s identity and “sense of place” must be considered and integrated into safeguarding plans through participatory research, documentation, and management processes. The UNESCO Recommendation on the HUL sets forth four categories of tools to apply to projects: civic engagement tools, knowledge and planning tools, regulatory systems, and financial tools. What role can the concept of “cultural rights” play within each of these categories to ensure that local inhabitants are included at every stage of implementation? This theme addresses the need for holistic approaches that situate local communities at their cores through examples of effective practices and proposals for future strategies.
