How can urban planning testimonies of the 20th century be preserved in the present and in the future as a ‘tangible whole’? How should the preservation of historical monuments deal with the modern city? Any interaction with the modern city requires a holistic view beyond the boundaries of the discipline of monument preservation. Nine case studies on European cities, ensembles and settlements illustrate the difficult balance between preservation and design. The contributions come from historians, representatives from the fields of building research and inventory, practical monument conservators, architects and urban planners.
