In this lecture, Professor Yong will speak about the concept of “living heritage.” Our built heritage is an outstanding example of traditional human habitation, in which traditional life and space are interdependent, and constantly changing. It is a kind of “living heritage” with the dual attributes of heritage and life.
The lecture will introduce examples of living heritage including the Ancient city of Pingyao, China, amongst other heritage sites. The research team has adhered to the “value-based” protection principle, established a “people-centred” protection method and governance model, and maintained key heritage attributes, characteristics, and values while enhancing urban and rural revitalisation.
