|Title:||16th US/ICOMOS International Symposium|
|When:||02.05.2013 - 04.05.2013|
|Description:||The Historic Center and the Next City|
Envisioning Urban Heritage Evolution
In 2011, the 35th UNESCO General Conference adopted the ‘Recommendation on the Historic Urban Landscape’ encouraging the espousal of a landscape approach to the study and conservation of cities within their broader urban contexts and their geographical settings. The goal of the 16th Annual US/ICOMOS International Symposium is to join in a robust discussion focused on the evolution of our historic urban centers and ascertain how they provide inspiration for the future of cities around the world.
The 2013 symposium will be held in historic downtown Savannah, and will be co-hosted by the Savannah College of Art and Design, an internationally recognized leader in adaptive rehabilitation and urban revitalization with locations in the United States, France, Hong Kong and online via SCAD eLearning.
US/ICOMOS invites poster and paper proposals that examine the challenges in striking a balance between the potential of historic cities for future wealth creation and innovation, with the fragile nature of a city’s heritage, integrity and sense of place.
