In this section, the authors present their research on urban shrinkage and twentieth-century architectural heritage relationships. The twentieth-century architectural heritage is often unrecognized, underevaluated, neglected or destroyed in growing cities that tend to correct or mask their past. But what does this heritage mean in shrinking cities that have far fewer opportunities for heritage preservation, adaptation, reuse or even demolition? What is the real existing value of this heritage for them? What role does it play in their identity and future? Is it possible to preserve the ‘architecture of growth’ within a shrinking city? This collective work aims to highlight different aspects in the relationship between urban shrinkage and heritage, and to encourage further research into the mutual influence of urban shrinkage and built legacy.
Keywords: Urban shrinkage; built legacy; heritage preservation
