Abstract (in English)
The author, working for UNESCO's international training program for specialists in the conservation of cultural properties and with the support of ICOMOS InternationalWood Committee, has visited and examined more than 200 heritage properties and historic monuments in Japan. He then gives an overview of architectural preservation through history, detailing the Japanese legislation in this particular domain and focusing on wood as specific building material in Japanese traditional architectural heritage. He tries to present the Japanese approach to the preservation of timber structures, as compared to the Norwegian one. What values, what philosophy prevail? Numerous case studies of restoration projects illustrate this thoroughly documented study.
