ARCH 000/4931 - Introduction to Urban and Architecture Conservation (3 cr.)



Description
Egypt is one of the richest countries in its cultural heritage. Monuments, buildings of value, archaeological remains, and preserved urban tissues are dispersed along its geographical areas dating back from pre-history, Ancient Egyptian, Coptic, Islamic, Colonial and Modern periods, in addition to the vernacular settlements. Although this gift is an asset for its development, challenges for comprehensive conservation and valorization are great. Poverty, demographic pressure, lack of awareness, deteriorating services, environmental hazards, and difficult bureaucratic procedures are among other difficulties facing heritage successful preservation.
