The Conservation

About the Conservation

Conservation is defined as activity aimed at ensuring the continued existence of structures that represent the cultural, historic and architectural values within contemporary society alongside recognition of its present and future needs. Why should we conserve these buildings? It seems that Yigal Allon provided a succinct explanation: “A nation that does not respect its past will have a dull present and an uncertain future.” In other words, we need to conserve historic buildings in order to create a sense of historical stability and continuity, as individuals and as a nation. The historic sites are an integral part of the culture; they are built cultural assets. The historic sites that we conserve can be classified according to different criteria.

Criteria for Conservation

  • Sites that were the homes of famous figures who contributed to the development of the country, such as Bialik House in Tel Aviv

  • Sites that serve exemplify the culture of a given society during a given period – for example, settlement models created in the country after immigration waves, buildings or complexes of buildings that represent built culture, construction technology, and building materials.

  • Buildings of local importance – sites that are associated with the history of pre-state Israel and, as such, are part of the life experience here, embedded in the historic memory

  • Sites of national importance – sites where national historic events took place
