What values are associated with heritage structures and landscapes that are allowed to undergo transformation and change?
The Transformation theme seeks to document how the practice of cultural remembrance can be sustained with materials and landscapes that are allowed to undergo active processes of change and transformation. Within this broad area of interest, the work has a particular interest in the way in which a focus on process, rather than permanence, renders the distinction between natural and cultural heritage unworkable, and unsustainable. This theme considers the future dilemmas associated with the management of change by working within two distinct domains of practice: built heritage and transitional landscapes.
