Heritage values: New Typologies for Social Achievements

Heritage Technology and Society

New Typologies for Social Achievements

The 20th century witnessed the progressive universalization of social rights and public services. In order to provide services for a growing society, new typologies were needed. Technical and social innovations in health care and education meant changes in architectural typologies which derived in increasingly more specialized buildings. These buildings have become a testimony of social achievements and help us commemorate the effort society made to ensure better living conditions and progress, achievements from which we still benefit as a society today.
