Abstract

Patrick Geddes (1854–1932) was a social reformer and planner whose interests defied categorisation. His concept of conservation was an holistic one, concerned with built heritage as part of a broader vision of ‘civic evolution’. This paper describes how conservative surgery takes into account the existing physical, social and symbolic landscape of a place in order to allow its most favourable future development.
