Abstract: Abstract- Efforts in architectural heritage conservation can be characterized as either top-down or bottom-up. In developing countries, including Vietnam, the efforts to retain the physical value of heritage sites, however, have been marked by considerable difference of views and arguments over the contents and approaches. This dissertation proposes a framework to enable communities to assess the values and meanings of these physical environments, to clarify their (users¿) relationship to the urban and heritage environments. The dissertation adopts Gibson¿s ¿affordances¿ (1986/ 1979) to analyse critically various stages of these relationships. A conceptual integration, ¿affordances of urban heritage environment¿ (ASHE), has been used to examine the ¿place contribution-user possibility¿ interaction (CPI) in both outdoor and shared contexts in order to proceed towards a ¿ground-up profile¿ (GUP) approach in conservation. The research uses a quantitative and critical research method
