Abstract

The protection of 20th century architecture has by now become a fully–fledged part of the dis- cipline of preservation, and even the heritage of the second post–war period is increasingly recognised as worthy of conservation. Nonetheless, in practice, this cultural awareness still clashes with the dif- ficulties attached to adapting buildings to present day regulations. Even when intervening on buildings that are officially recognized as “monuments”, from one country to another and even from one region to another in the same country, there is great variety in how dispensations from applicable regulations are allowed.
