Built Heritage is a blind-peer-reviewed international journal devoted to all aspects of the research, conservation, and regeneration of historic buildings, settlements and sites. It is the first English journal in China integrating built heritage conservation in a multidisciplinary sphere of architecture, urban and rural planning, and landscape architecture, administrated by the Minister of Education of China, sponsored by Tongji University, and published by Tongji University Press. The editor-in-chief, Chang Qing, professor at the College of Architecture and Urban Planning in Tongji University, is an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The co-editor-in-chief, Zhou Jian, professor at the College of Architecture and Urban Planning in Tongji University, is the Secretary-General of World Heritage Institute of Training and Research for the Asia and the Pacific Region under the auspices of UNESCO.
The conceptual basis of Built Heritage lies on the fundamental differences concerning built heritage conservation with regard to global cultural diversity, recognising these differences as a source for creativity. Published in English, the aim of Built Heritage is to foster scientific exchange between Chinese and international scholars, offering a platform to record the latest developments in the field, allowing for further homologation of scientific research and the recognition of cultural diversity. Built Heritage will enhance the awareness for the conservation of the built environment in China, offering support to the debate from a critical perspective, engaging with current hot discussions such as: the role of contemporary architecture in historic environments; the definition of authenticity; new tools of heritage management; politics, culture and identity; energy consumption and sustainability.
Built Heritage will introduce the most recent international scientific research production in built heritage conservation theory and practice. It encompasses the conservation of architecture, urbanism and landscape architecture in urban and rural environments from a multidisciplinary approach. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to the empirical study of built heritage, history and theory, conservation projects and heritage management.
