An uklad-based approach to protection and sustainable development of cultural heritage in Chisinau, Moldova
Irina Irbiskaya will discuss the uklad-based approach to preservation of cultural heritage in the Republic of Moldova. An uklad is a persistent way of life / mode of activity which has a spatial expression. The ways uklads exist in the city differ according to the size and the role of a city (e.g. capital city, a regional administrative center or a small town). An uklad is characterized by the prevalent family culture, by its attitude to the surrounding space, by the manner in which people belonging to the uklad are aware of their past and construct their future, by how they perceive their children, how they interact with their territory and their neighbors, how they own their property and treat others' property, and by how they work and spend their leisure time.
The uklad-based approach to preservation of cultural heritage is elaborated within the framework of the ‘Russian Experts upon request’ program in accordance with Partnership Framework Agreement between the Government of Russian Federation and the UN Development Program.
Irina Irbitskaya is an architect and urban planner. She is the director of the Center of Urban Competence at the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA) with expertise in housing projects and urban development and planning advancement. She is a co-founder of the international project Doktor Gorodov.
