Abstract

The preservation of heritage architecture (PHA) is a complex socio-economic enterprise that transpires space, time and cultural settings. Thus, management and decision making in PHA proceeds within a variety of political and economic pressures from different groups with their own vested interests. Yet another aspect is brought by deleterious physical and environmental factors. The present paper discusses PHA in its practical management within the Theory of Complex Systems and some ideas of modern physics. Keywords: heritage architecture, management, complexity theory, decision making, virtual reality, fuzzy logic, quantum logic, symmetry breaking.
