About This Book

The 'living' heritage is closely associated with a community. To manage this dynamic heritage, it is not only necessary to look beyond the established heritage frameworks developed by experts, but also to empower communities so that they can maintain and even enhance their 'own' heritage. "People + places" is a fully illustrated book that offers participatory ways in the form of community mapping for exploring the relationship between the people and places of the Songkhla Old Town. This book analyses and summarises the social, cultural and economic assets directly related to of the old town as identified with the assistance of the locals. It also contains a detailed metric survey of two historic buildings in Songkhla old town - Railway station and a historic shophouse to raise public awareness and appreciation of Songkhla's rich and varied built heritage. This is an essential book for community architects and architects, city planners, urban designers, heritage groups, and anyone else concerned with public engagement in cultural heritage management.
