Abstract

The first part deals with the origins and development of conservation philosophy in Britain and in France The second part looks to the changes and priorities in the legislation providing the conservation policy which reflects the change in attitude towards the buildings of the past. The third part looks at the network of official and private organisations involved in conservation. The fourth part deals with character since it is the most difficult factor to define in conservation philosophy. Finally, two case studies are examined: From Britain, Edinburgh particularly the Old Town. From France, the area of Paris known as "The Marais." The conclusion considers the impact of the different natural approches on the built fabric of cities with regard to conservation.
