Figen Kıvılcım Çorakbaş
Associate Professor of Architecture, Bursa Uludağ University
The conservation of the spirit of place in Cappadoocia, and a methodology to conserve the tangible and the intangible values of a multilayered cultural landscape


This breakout session will focus on the concept of cultural landscape. We will hear impulse presentations from projects at two large heritage sites: Cappadocia, Turkey and Mainz Citadel, German. We will then open the room to a wider discussion on the topic, with the aims of composing a brief statement to share with the rest of the symposium, and defining a set of Wikipedia edits for the following day.

Expected outcomes

This room will identify the key future challenges and opportunities in relation to Cultural Landscapes.
