IAU île-de-France

What's new ?

The Île-de-France area, rich in both cultural and built heritage today has to make up with sustainable development, attractiveness and memory, and to reconcile preservation with modernity.
The issue no. 167 of Les Cahiers de l’IAU îdF addresses an important aspect: the “built component” of heritage. It draws up an inventory of the situation in order to provide better understanding for public and private stakeholders of its role and to anticipate necessary changes.
