New Hope to Urbanism: Congruence of Architectural Conservation, Urban Design and Sustainability

Divya Chakravarti


Abstract: In countries like India and China and others in South Asia and Europe, where the roots of history is so inter twined in the urban fabric it is close to impossible to segregate the principles of conservation from that of urban design or urban planning. It is truly beneficial to the city, people, and the future development as well, if the cultural and historic context of the urban core is only altered upon rather than being completely stripped to the bare bone and replaced in its entirety. It is high time we (architects, urban planners and the general public) realize that context matters and that new buildings and additions to old buildings should be harmonious with their neighbours. It is important to place value on all aspects of the built environment, including architectural styles, urban fabric, the decorative arts, cultural purposes, etc. The question that needs to be addressed With contemporary design being redefined by architects, and urbanists who are recovering the historic language associated with traditional architecture and the city, how can preservation change its focus or update its mission
