Description: the concept of architectural preservation is relatively new-dating only to the 19th century. Buildings dating to the middle ages still survive but their survival is accidental, rather than planned. In the early and mid 19th century, however, old buildings began to be preserved on their own merits, as historic monuments, rather than for reasons of economy or convenience. Our Architectural heritage exerts a dynamic influence on contemporary architecture.
