Publisher Comments

Provides an invaluable statement of the interests, concerns and ambitions facing the guardians, managers and designers of our urban heritage. For policy makers, owners, and amenity groups the book provides a balanced overview of current attitudes to managing change in historic environments. For professionals of conservation and architecture it presents a challenging and comprehensive view of the philosophies of respected designers and administrators to the central issue of how to cherish our built heritage without separating it from everyday life.

The schism between the modern movement and the conservationists has mellowed considerably since the ‘heroic’ period of architecture of the 1950’s and the 1960’s when a desire to reject the past and refocus on new aesthetic and social values often resulted in inappropriate developments and damaging insertions to the historic fabric of our towns and cities. Today, policy makers and planners recognize the focus of urban conservation to be as much concerned with the making of sustainable and vibrant places as the conservation and restoration of buildings. Design thinking has matured to absorb modernism and recognise the values of the past in building a continuity for the future.

‘Context: new buildings in historic settings’ stems from a seminar held at The University of York, Institute of Advanced Architectural Studies, which drew together leading architects, urban managers, policy makers and client bodies. The outcome was an invigorating debate, which spanned from Robert Adam’s advocacy for traditionaldesign to the uncompromising but sublime correctness of Foster and Partners’ insertions into historic settings.
