Beschrijving Routledge Research in Architectural Conservation and Historic Preservation: The Protected Vista


The Protected Vista draws a historical lineage from the eighteenth century picturesque to present day planning policy, highlighting how the values embedded within familiar views have developed over time through appropriation by diverse groups for cultural and political purposes.



The book examines the intellectual construction of the protected vista, questioning the values entrenched within the view, by whom, and how they are observed and disseminated, to reveal how these views have been, and continue to be, part of a changing historical and political narrative. With a deeper knowledge and understanding of the shifting values in urban views, we will be better equipped to make decisions surrounding their protection in our urban centres. The book identifies the origins of current view protection policy in the aesthetic convention of the picturesque, drawing on a range of illustrated examples in the UK, US, Australia, Canada and South Africa, to serve as a useful reference to students, researchers and academics in architecture, architectural conservation, landscape and urban planning.
