Architecture has always been found in a space between its economic and cultural values. Yet these values are often seen as compromised by, or contingent upon, forces outside the discipline: property prices, real estate markets, and the vicissitudes of local and global economies. The intersections of cultural and economic values are especially conspicuous in architectural heritage, where conflicts between them are most publicly and passionately contested. This book examines the different sites and occasions where such values are bestowed, exchanged, and can create friction through a collection of essays that tackle concrete cases, both historical and contemporary.
