Abstract (in English)

The obligation to conserve the heritage of the twentieth century is as important as our duty to conserve the significant heritage of previous eras. More than ever, the architectural heritage of this century is at risk from a lack of appreciation and care. Some has already been lost and more is in danger. It is a living heritage and it is essential to understand, define, interpret and manage it well for future generations. The Madrid Document 2011 seeks to contribute to the appropriate and respectful handling of this important period of architectural heritage. While recognising existing heritage conservation documentsi, the Madrid Document also identifies many of the issues specifically involved in the conservation of architectural heritage. Yet while it specifically applies to architectural heritage in all its forms, many of its concepts may equally apply to other types of twentieth-century heritage. The document is intended for all those involved in heritage conservation processes. Explanatory notes are incorporated where necessary and a glossary of terms completes the document.
