About This Book

Part 1 of this volume consists of five chapters that examine broader issues of conservation principles and approaches in historic cities of Asia. The contributions discuss various perspectives ranging from critiques of current conservation policies regarding local heritage conservation to recent trends of rapid and unplanned development of historic quarters in Asian cities. The case studies in Part 2 of this volume contextualise current debates on the role of community engagement to conserve historic urban quarters and examine diverse contexts across Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand and Philippines. All five chapters are about real-world projects where the authors were actively involved in various roles - as facilitators, professional advisers, community leaders and coordinators, and activists. Why does local heritage matter to communities? The contributions explored the fundamental reasons for this question and argued that heritage mean more than just mere identity, continuity and accumulated layers of memories.
