Abstract: The ideas of urban conservation have been applied to Chinese urban planning for a few decades. However, most practices of historical conservation look at issues of conservation on building-scale rather than urban-scale spaces. The main stream concept of Chinese urban conservation is object-oriented, with less consideration in the cultural, economic and social dimensions. The dissertation first reviews the basic concept of urban conservation and its contemporary practice, especially focusing on the potential conflicts between conservation and urban development. The concept of sustainability and its application to the proposition of “sustainable conservation” was then discussed. Through literatures, the ideas of urban conservation were further explored based on theoretical debates in Chapter two. In Chapter three, two case studies of urban conservation in Chinese cities were introduced, one in Shanghai and the other in Zhaoqing of Guangzhou. The two case studies show how the conventional definition of conservation was extended and reinterpreted. We understand that the contemporary practice of Chinese urban conservation has gone beyond the heritage as object approach. In Shanghai, we saw that urban conservation deals with new urban program of art and creative industry. In the case Zhaoqing, the social and urban contextual issues have priority in the conservation planning process. In conclusion, we emphasize that urban conservation should cover cultural, economic and social dimensions. It contains both physical and non-physical aspects of planning.
