Overview

“From such well-known and long-vexed sites as the Athenian Acropolis to more contemporary locales like the Space Age Modernist capital city of Brasília, the conflicting and not always neatly resolvable forces that bear upon preservation are addressed as clearly and thoughtfully as the general reader could hope for.”—New York Review of Books

“…an astonishing feat of research, compilation and synthesis.”—Context

The book delivers the first major survey concerning the conservation of cultural heritage in both Europe and the Americas. Architectural Conservation in Europe and the Americas serves as a convenient resource for professionals, students, and anyone interested in the field. Following the acclaimed Time Honored, this book presents contemporary practice on a country-by-country and region-by-region basis, facilitating comparative analysis of similarities and differences. The book stresses solutions in architectural heritage protection and the contexts in which they were developed.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

“…the authors, experts in their disciplines and capable writers of clear, solid prose, guide us unfailingly through the issues and the regions.”
— MUSEUM, the magazine of the American Association of Museums

“…in this book we have our first effort at a genuinely objective assessment and coherent international perception of the accomplishments of individual nations."
—Marek Baranski in Conservation News – Journal of the Association of Monument Conservators, (Warsaw)

“This is a great textbook for students of international architectural conservation, as it boldly seeks to describe the historical and theoretical roots of heritage conservation, the current organizational structure and key elements of practice on a continental, regional and then national basis, starting with Europe (from Ireland to Azerbaijan and including Iceland and Greenland) and ending across the Atlantic (from Canada to Chile including the Caribbean). Endnotes abound.”
—Journal of Architectural Conservation, (British)
