Heritage and development

The complexity of development projects based on cultural heritage lies in finding the right balance between past and present, historic preservation and economic development. We strongly believe that managing such a “conflict” is the key challenge for this type of projects.
Our work has taken place in several sites inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List such as the Charterhouse of San Lorenzo at Padula (Italy), the cultural heritage of Niger, the Medina of Fez (Morocco), the Walled City of Lahore (Pakistan), the city of Kandy (Sri Lanka) and the city of Berat (Albania).
