Preserving Harisankara- Lessons in Rebuilding on Patan's Royal Square in Nepal 2015 to 2019
The Harishankara reconstruction project along with Char Narayan Temple, row of the Patan Darbar Earthquake Response projects are notably the first major post-quake reconstructions since the arrival of international participation and preservation techniques in Nepal in the early 1970's. The last major earthquake had been in 1934. In addition to documentation of the architectural elements and rebuilding process, this volume describes how an international team (Nepalese, German, and American) negotiated between local and international building philosophies and practices.
Since the 1990's, the authors have been active in the Kathmandu Valley, identifying and sharing preservation practice as contributions to a global discourse. This discourse addresses the collisions and intersections of different preservation values at World Heritage Sites: East vs. West, meeting of local vs. international, World Heritage vs. indigenous cultural values, etc.
