Title of the articleInterpretation of World Cultural Heritage Buffer Zone objects: shift from conservation principles to principles of sustainable development for historic urban landscapes
Abstract.The monuments, groups of monuments and sites with (OUV) Outstanding Universal Value listed into the UNESCO World Heritage List impose restrictions on the development of the cultural heritage site and its historical and urban environmental surrounding of the historic urban landscape and other areas located within the buffer zone. On the one hand, such a conservation system is aimed to ensure the protection of the cultural heritage sites, but on the other hand, it prevents or interrupts urban development. In case for lack of a comprehensive study, assessment and methodology for forming of the world cultural heritage buffer zones, present research represents particular relevant and important level. The article shows the identification and systematization of the genesis and the main periods of the protective actions for the surrounding areas of the world cultural heritage sites and the occurrence of buffer zones as independent groups of protection areas. The genealogy of cultural heritage surroundings’ protection and creation of world cultural heritage buffer zones includes the following stages: (1) recognition of the urban heritage; (2) international approach to conserve architectural and urban environment of the world cultural heritage sites; (3) development of the concept for the buffer zone definition as an additional protection of world cultural heritage sites; (4) shift from the classical concept of «conservation» to the paradigm of «managing changes» for historic urban landscapes. The theoretical and legal framework of the international conservation system and the legislation of the State Parties (countries participating in the UNESCO Convention) were analyzed to study the issues of interpretation of a term «buffer zone» at the legislative level in Europe and to offer the new clarified definition.
Keywords.buffer zones, world cultural heritage, timeline, sustainable development, historic urban landscape.
