Inventing – integrating – modifying specialized solutions that support sustainability in cultural heritage interventions
My experience with fellow graduates suggests that there is difficulty in inventing – integrating – modifying specialized technical solutions that support sustainability in cultural heritage protection interventions. This arises from the very nature and degree of protection of historical remains but also from academic approaches that treat sustainability and heritage studies as distinct objects of knowledge. I think that a new corpus of holistic integrated approaches needs to be produced.
