Cultural Heritage context.
Architect central role
Cultural Heritage seems not to be adequately protected by the common and everyday practice. The central point is what is nearby these artefacts: the relationship that Cultural Heritage establishes with the context. It seems that often the relationship between architectural objects and the context they belong to had been lost. Therefore, the architect appears to be the best professional figure to work in this field, given his ability to decode and find new meaning for these objects in the present, and to imagine the future of the places they belong.
