Research Summary

When appraising the significance of listed buildings within the UK, the appraisal process is primarily based on ‘tangibility’ – what we can see or touch that is representative of our built heritage. Whilst literature and guidance acknowledge the need to consider ‘intangibility’, the nature of ‘intangible building values’ is not conclusive. Therefore, these nonmaterial representations of people and their cultures may not be appropriately considered when conserving or adapting listed buildings.

 

This research seeks to advance the existing literature on the conservation of listed buildings with new knowledge relating to the safeguarding of intangible values during the conservation and adaptation process. It will exam the capacity for the heritage industry to adopt a more contemporary model for the conservation of historic buildings, leading to relevant knowledge exchange in an era where people and communities are taking a more prominent role in how we define built heritage.
