Abstract:

The concept of patrimony is continuingly evolving, and international conventions as well as each country’s own regulations are revelatory of this. The 2005 Faro Convention (Convention on the Value of Cultural Heritage for Society) emphasises cultural diversity, and, during the latest UN conference in Quito, UNESCO published a report on the importance of culture (Culture: Urban Future. Global Report on Culture for Sustainable Urban Development).

After the stages of normalized urbanization under Maoist rule, followed by the past three decades marked by another form of standardization and the marketization of the housing market, a search for a deeper identity, and the reclamation of a more important role for the ‘genius loci’, the culture, the specificity of places is being reclaimed in China as in many Western countries.

How should we proceed? The aim of this lecture is to sketch out a methodology through the retrospective analysis of the co-operation carried out over the last twenty years with our partners in Shanghai.

摘要:

“遗产”这个概念一直以来都在不断演变,这种演变表现在国际公约和各国的相关法律性文件上。2005年签订的《社会文化遗产价值框架公约》(又称《Faro公约》)强调了文化的多样性,在最近一次联合国基多峰会上,教科文组织也发布了旨在宣扬文化重要性的报告。

经历了五十、六十年代整体化的城市化进程,又经过近三十年房地产业规范化和金融化过程,中国和西方大多数国家一样,今后每次实施新的城市化项目都需要一种更深层次的文化认同,追求一种更契合“场所精神”的价值观。

在这次讲座中,我将回顾二十年以来我们与上海的同仁们共同协作的历程,同时向大家简要介绍一种方法论。
