Abstract (in English)

In "Quelle doctrine de sauvegarde pour demain ?" ("What protection-of-monuments doctrine for tomorrow?) Professor Lemaire remarks that the value of the building has always depended on its use, beauty and ability to provide an historical source. It is the last, a building as the essential means of discovering and understanding the past, which has dominated conservation doctrine and which has given rise to the conflict between artistic and historical authenticity. It reached its apogee in the Venice Charter, yet undoubtedly Asiatic and Arab cultures, for example, approach the visible part of their history with a sensibility which is fundamentally different to that of the European. The author questions whether we should therefore resort to the multiplication of charters and comes down in favour of an universal charter with complementary supplements for the different cultures. Social and economic considerations are given due weight: rehabilitation rather than redevelopment and the contribution of the heritage to the economy through tourism. With the rupture of tradition there is now a greater psychological need for continuity. The cultivation of memory, the study of the past in all its forms are the only guarantee of future creativity.
