Heritage and Democracy was the designated theme for the Scientific Symposium organised in the largest Democracy of the world - India in the city of New Delhi from 11th to 15th December 2017 during the course of ICOMOS 19th General Assembly.
The fundamental idea of this Symposium was inspired by a recent global shift in heritage discourse towards a sincere people-centric engagement. The Scientific Symposium proceedings explore the possibilities for cultural heritage in a domain of multiple stakeholders, recognising the challenges of cultural diversity and resulting contestations amidst local and/or global communities.
The Modern Movement, also referred to as Modern Architecture or Modernism, is a movement involving conceptualizations of architecture after the First World War. Its main steps are based on functionalism and rationalism.
