The Assessment Project for the Conservation of the Built Cultural Heritage

The Assessment Project for the Conservation of the Built Cultural Heritage

The monuments and artifacts created by the different peoples living in present day Turkey have greatly contributed to the creation of common esthetic values. They all generated added value to our cultural heritage. In this context, the architectural products of different ethnic groups throughout history on Anatolian and Thracian soil prove to be quite significant. It is important that these items of architectural heritage currently facing oblivion, unprotected and endangered by nature and by human intervention be documented and protected, and that the future survival of these cultural products be ensured for shedding light upon historical development and architectural history. Thus, with the aim of protecting these artifacts and ensuring that they reach future generations, it is first and foremost necessary to raise the awareness of the people, draw the attention of local and national authorities to the matter, and create public awareness regarding the protection of cultural heritage.

This project was realized through a co-operation between KMKD and Anadolu Kültür and supported by the US Department of State.
