This year’s HYI roundtable will present an exchange of ideas about current issues of architectural preservation in Asian cities. Our panelists will focus on architecture of modern times, and in particular of the colonial era.  What are the challenges, and the opportunities, facing those interested to preserve the architecture of this era and make its importance known to the present and posterity? These challenges and opportunities have political, economic, and cultural dimensions. Panelists will address the topic from one or more of these perspectives.
