The process of preserving built heritage challenges the institutional, technological, and conceptual notions of the twentieth century, and it becomes a global, deeply interdisciplinary, and digitally driven process. However, new opportunities go hand in hand with new uncertainties. Built heritage can no longer exist as a discipline autonomous from political, environmental, pandemic, and other global concerns. Referring to this, this Special Issue on “Built Heritage Conservation in the Twenty-First Century” in Buildings aims to provide a platform for the discussion of significant research challenges and achievements on the methods and technologies in the field of built heritage. It is expected to collect various results of research and practical experiences related to the definition of significance, identification of construction technologies and restoration methods, creation of adaptive reuse strategies, and other relevant topics. Dr. V. Petrulis warmly invites authors to submit their articles for potential inclusion in this Special Issue of Buildings, “Built Heritage Conservation in the Twenty-First Century”.
