Valuing Design and Innovation in Built Heritage: Exploratory Conversations

This project seeks to investigate the value of design and innovation in the context of built heritage.

Innovative design has the potential to provide effective solutions for building conservation, but not enough attention has been given to opportunities for innovation to make the vast majority of the existing urban fabric smarter for the future.

By facilitating dialogue between heritage guardianship agencies and design SME’s, this exploratory project aims to provide a deeper understanding of constraints which are potentially restricting innovation with regards to built heritage and also highlight stories of success where design SMEs have been able to create value.
