The architecture and built heritage of the
postwar era, and more recent decades, have not yet fully been considered from
the perspective of cultural heritage. Thus, only a few monuments or buildings
from this time are currently legally protected. The potential values that are
embedded in postwar and postmodern twentieth century architecture are therefore
deemed to be at risk due to extensive social changes and perhaps also lack of
recognition by society in general.
The regional Working Group 20th
Century Built Cultural Heritage, composed by scientists, architects and
cultural managers, are preparing the conference From
Postwar to Postmodern – 20th Century Built Cultural Heritage. This conference
addresses the historical legacy of postwar twentieth century architecture in
the context of the Baltic Sea region. The conference will take place in Kiel,
Germany, 28-30th of September 2016, within the framework of the 6th Baltic Sea Region Cultural Heritage Forum.
