The Heritage of the Ordinary — Urban Heritage Conservation in Chandernagore
Full video of talk

Watch the full video (above) of the talk by Aishwarya Tipnis, where she discusses the recognition and conservation of 'everyday buildings' as 'heritage' in India, with a special focus on small towns.

In this talk, Tipnis presents the case study of Chandernagore, an erstwhile French Colony situated about 40 kms from Kolkata, where multiple efforts are being initiated by the voluntary sector in an attempt to preserve and valorise the essential ‘urban character’ of the city, instead of letting it fall prey to 'piecemeal suburban redevelopment'.

The question and answer session that followed can be accessed here.
