Grenville, J. (2007) Conservation as psychology: ontological security and the built environment. International Journal of Heritage Studies, 13 (6). pp. 447-461. ISSN 1352-7258
This paper outlines a theoretical approach to the rationale for conservation of built environment that suggests that psychological factors may be as important as political or aesthetic issues. Within the context of conservation of historic buildings and townscapes, it examines the notion of ontological security and the importance of the physical world in its construction and takes case studies from post-war Europe and contemporary South Korea to illustrate its propositions.
