Heritage and Cultural Identity

What we do

The UIA Heritage and Cultural Identity Work Programme promotes methods for the conservation of architectural heritage and works to protect existing and future heritage and cultural sites from natural disasters. The Programme engages in questions of urban and sustainable development, rehabilitation, renovation and conservation of existing sites, striving to establish high international standards for good practice.

How we do it

  • Research – Working in collaboration with politicians and architects, Programme members are constantly developing case studies of architectural heritage.
  • Expert Counsel – The Programme offers professional consulting and organises international dialogue between architects and students specialised in the conservation and research of architectural heritage.

Who we work with

Anyone engaged in work with culture and heritage sites, including public authorities, academics, students, architects and sustainable development actors.
