It also examines the macro design and planning issues of integrating heritage buildings and conservation districts into new developments.

ARCH8102 Architectural heritage and the built environment (3 units)

This course focuses on heritage buildings and sites in relation to their settings within a socio-cultural context. Emphasis is placed on the built heritage of Hong Kong, Macau and Mainland China.

ARCH8107 Field study II: South China or East Asia (3 units) This field study in southern China or an East Asian country, with input by local governmental or private conservation experts, provides in-depth understanding of the relationship of conservation efforts to cultural tourism and sustainable development. The field study, which takes place near the end of the academic year, is also an opportunity for students to use their knowledge in cultural heritage conservation to assist local stakeholders in specific conservation-related initiatives.

ARCH8109 Cultural landscapes (3 units)

This course focuses on understanding heritage places using the concept of cultural landscapes – landscapes that reflect distinctive patterns of interaction between people and the natural environment.

The course examines the current theory and practice of cultural landscapes, especially within the context of Hong Kong, Macau, Mainland China and Southeast Asia.

SECOND YEAR CORE COURSES

ARCH8201 Research methods in conservation (3 units) This seminar course examines the major methodologies employed in effective conservation research.

This course provides students with the fundamentals for the preparation of their compulsory dissertation.

ARCH8203 Practical training in conservation I (3 units) This course offers students the opportunity to undertake practical on-site training in a conservation project (for a minimum of 72 contact hours).
