TIn this repect the project will focus on the concepts of Authenticity and Integrity in built heritage preservation. It will show compatible and non-compatible solutions for heritage preservation and enhancement, along with theoretical concepts of the importance of local uniqueness vs globalization trends (in built heritage context). Practical excercises, theoretical (brief and simple) deepenings, on-site demonstration should be envisaged in the project.
