Camille ANNOUN and Charlotte NEMOZ, “Towards a heritage approach to territory around the Mediterranean”

The intervention proposes a reflection on territorial heritage, natural and cultural vernacular resources through history, and on the transmission in situation of a common Mediterranean culture. 

Through examples of studies and actions carried out, it will be a question of outlining a transversal heritage approach, the product of a human fabrication that is both natural and cultural, aiming at the comfort, economy, richness of uses and habitat of lived and natural landscapes.

Mediterranean architecture and landscapes tell us of permanency, traditions and adaptations to climate and soil, the awareness and study of which will allow us to reveal the territorial heritage, to elaborate a shared imaginary through a common narrative of the landscape, and to propose truly perennial solutions to the development of the territory as a common good.
