Successful development of the building stock
27 years of the protection of urban architectural heritage
European cities have always been places of communication and shared life. These characteristics of the European city are particularly reflected in the building structure, which has evolved over centuries. Every city has developed individually in this context and has taken different steps in development.
However, these development steps have not been completed. The cities are subject to continuous change. In order to guide this change actively, one must not neglect or forget the consideration of the building stock. Through the urban development assistance programme "Protection of Urban Architectural Heritage" change takes place in accordance with the development of the building stock. The joint consideration of the protection of urban architectural heritage and urban development is a factor of success of the programme.
In the first part of the publication the history as well as the further development of urban development assistance and the design of the programme "Protection of Urban Architectural Heritage" in terms of content are presented in specialist articles. The second part of the publication provides a survey of the work of the programme with 18 practical examples.
In the framework of the European Year of the Cultural Heritage 2018 this publication is supposed to inform the general public, also in other European countries, about the approach towards urban development assistance in the Federal Republic of Germany as well as about the programme "Protection of Urban Architectural Heritage" as an instrument of integrated urban development.
