WHITRAP-Shanghai, the French network of Small Cities (Petites Cités de Caractères de France) and the Architecture Observatory of Contemporary China, Architecture and Heritage City (Observatoire de la Chine Contemporaine, Cité de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine) held their second working group meeting in Paris on 16 November. The objective is to develop a guideline on urban heritage interpretation center for cities based on French and Chinese experiences. In the past decades France and China have engaged in protecting and enhancing historic cities. One of the challenges is sharing and promoting heritage values to a wider audience, local residents, communities, professionals as well as tourists. The study WHITRAP and its longstanding partners are launching will provide decision makers and the community of heritage professionals and planers with tools and guidelines to link urban heritage values and urban development at large.
