Preserve culture by letting it evolve

Click HERE

To the often-cited argument that there is no point in the conservation of old buildings coz we only preserve the facade and neglect the interior, this article provides a good counter -- conservation does not mean we have to preserve the interior as it was in the past, coz this is not realistic nor practical; instead, it should be allowed to evolve with the times, permitting slight changes to it, but not so great/radical that it will become an affront or insult to its original like the ACS school example in a previous post....
"Hanging on to the old ways will not recreate how life was.
Rather, it creates a caricature of the past."

1.To what extent is it important to conserve the heritage in your society?
2. Assess the view that traditional buildings have no future in your society. (Cam. 2016)
