Cultural Heritage in The Metropolitan Peripheries

Project Details


Funded by the JPI CH/AHRC, this is a project to analyse two concurrent phenomena: the increasing recognition of the interest for the cultural heritage of the European metropolitan peripheries by various stakeholders; and the need for new development/infrastructure in the periphery resulting in unprecedented densification and renewal of the existing urban fabric. The conjunction of these trends creates both opportunities and risks for cultural heritage at the metropolitan peripheries.

Using innovative interdisciplinary methodologies, the project will investigate how to enhance the heritage of the urban peripheries, encouraging new development scenarios while protecting cultural heritage, what are the necessary mechanisms and tools to involve local societies in the policy making of cultural heritage at the urban peripheries, and how can this heritage be used as a means of spatial justice and balance between the different areas of the metropolises.
