Call for Papers: Built Heritage: A Cultural Impulse for Urban and Rural Development
7-10 April 2017, 2017 International Academic Forum, Tongji University, Shanghai, China
DATE: 25/12/2016
“Built Heritage in the international context includes architectural, urban and landscape heritage in urban and rural environments, containing a variety of historical and cultural information. Under the huge influence of globalization and informational networks, the demands for social and economic sustainability pose the challenges of how to deal with the production of built heritage in its historical environment, and how to understand the conservation of built heritage in relationship with future urban and rural development.
In order to face these new challenges, and due to growing attention from academia and society, there is a need for new discussion forums around the preservation and regeneration of built heritage. Therefore, the Architectural Society of China and Tongji University will host the International Academic Forum, Built Heritage: A Cultural Impulse for Urban and Rural Development. During this event, the organization will have the opportunity to celebrate the inauguration of The Academic Committee of Urban and Rural Built Heritage of the Architectural Society of China, and the presentation of the Built Heritage Journal.”

Held from 7-10 April 2017 at College of Architecture and Urban Planning, Tongji University, 1239 Siping Road, Shanghai.
