AbstractCultural landscape has only been recognized as an academic pedagogy relatively recently, tracing back to UNESCO's categorization of cultural landscapes in 1992, and the separate categorization of cultural landscape World Heritage Sites in 2008. In Hong Kong and Mainland China, cultural landscape was introduced into postgraduate teaching in 2003 when the Architectural Conservation Programmes launched a dedicated course on cultural landscapes, which evolved into a core course of the MSc and PDip(Conservation) programmes, with increasing number of PhD students taking on the topic. Landscapes Lost and Found is written in response to the lack of understanding and recognition of the theory and practice of cultural landscapes. The book incorporates best international guidelines illustrating good practices and challenges of current conservation with specific reference to the Hong Kong context using a representative cross-section of detailed urban and rural case studies.
