SYMPOSIUM | Melbourne: Traditionalism, Colonialism and Modernism: Asian Heritage Transformed

Wednesday, 2 October 2013 - 6:00pm to Friday, 4 October 2013 - 4:00pm
Architecture Building, University of Melbourne

In recent years heritage conservation has become a notable dimension of civil society activity in a range of Asian nations. New organisations and perspectives have encouraged an expanded view of heritage, which encourages people to look beyond the framework of tourism development.  One organisation that has played an important part in this is the Modern Asian Architecture Network (mAAN). This network of researchers and heritage practitioners has developed a distinctive voice during the past decade and now stands as a very influential advocate for better understanding and preserving the heritage of nineteenth and twentieth century industry, architecture and urban development across Asia.

This symposium will examine ways in which the heritage field in Indonesia, Malaysia, Cambodia and Singapore and elsewhere in Asia is moving beyond a paradigm that has been strongly focused on colonial and traditional built forms, and embracing the conservation of the sites of modern industry and modern architecture. The event will facilitate a conversation between mAAN and leading conservationists who have a deep knowledge of practices, histories and organisations in Asia.
