Heritage as an Active Space and Spatial Resource

Chapter
Part of the The Urban Book Series book series (UBS)

Abstract

The purpose of this communication is to show the thoughts of the Heritage Urbanism approach in the context of the QLand QLife project. Revival and new life of heritage increase the quality of landscape and quality of life. The question arising is how to turn the heritage into an active and living one. How to make heritage, often perceived as a burden, a resource and a generator of development. The goal is to promote the hypothesis that heritage should not be viewed as a static object (dead capital) but as an active subject.
