Special Issue Information
Tangible heritage, whether universal or local, has numerous layers and perspectives regarding its nature and how we approach and interpret it. To understand the universal value of tangible heritage, we have to seek its underlying principles, rules, and patterns that could involve disciplines not directly connected to the phenomenon of tangible heritage, such as urban morphology, space syntax, abd generative design, in addition to the discernible, such as archaeology, art and architecture history, and heritage protection.
This Special Issue of Heritage aims to research patterns in heritage and the underlying rules that define tangible heritage as a universal value in spatial coexistence, economics, urban life, and design via case studies and theoretical proposals that could be implemented in the future. The pattern language and the heritage phenomenon could act as a base of observation to deduct logic and create generative algorithms (generative design); to understand the importance of spatial connection with tangible heritage and urban forms (space syntax, urban morphology) and its visibility; and archaeological, architectural, and urban heritage. Based on the UNESCO-ICOMOS doctrines and the examination of morphological regions, urban morphological research and its different layers (urban forms, structural components, built environment, urban tissue and their interaction) act as a background and foundation to general urban heritage conservation and protection proposals.
This issue of Heritage welcomes traditional and contemporary methodologies and scholars from different backgrounds who intend to look for patterns of tangible heritage and its underlying principles to understand the diversity of heritage approaches.
