DILEMMA IN URBAN LIFE
BETWEEN CHANGE AND PRESERVATION
Adaptation includes alteration and addition to modify a space for a compatible use while retaining its cultural heritage value. The action of modifying a building for a more suitable usage or occupancy inevitably questions the implication of interventionism for the dependent urban life. Changes and preservation, in fact, are a constant struggle for a city. For a healthy and vibrant urban environment, preserving diversity and providing inclusive cultural membership are necessary. However, this need for a communal participation often gets dismissed in urban redevelopment plans. The city is often too complex to impose a single order and, therefore, intentional inclusivity is necessary to create a more equal urban environment.
