Abstract

Conservation and Enhancement. Nowadays one of the most important debate ongoing, that involves every level’s actors in field of Architecture, Urban Planning, as well as promoters and stakeholders, is on the connection and interrelation in between these two fields of study. The introduction of the new concept of Industry 4.0 and the continuous need for growing of living standards, together with daily innovations in the AEC world (Architecture, Engineering and Construction Industry), is leading towards new horizons the entire concept of conservation of ancient architecture. Thanks to the growing possibilities of comparison in between way of living among different parts of the world, the individual and diffuse instinct in economically emerging countries is to reach a better state in the healthy possibilities and wellness. In these nations, the impulse towards a growth of the wellness conditions is usually combined with a conspicuous availability of free land plots and the willingness of moving towards new production areas. Ancient areas of cities were not commonly considered within this progress part of the possible evolution: in certain cases, as a matter of facts, city centres of developing nations became omitted areas, seen as not productive ones. The analysis of the difficulties that actors as municipalities, trusts, foundations and NGOs are facing because of the quick development and different government directions, focuses this research on the necessity of introducing an inspection methodology for the heritage centres that has to be as less expensive as possible from three main points of view. Economical, timing, easiness. The aim of the research is to define a documenting methodology that allows the creation of a cataloguing system of areas of not-yet-surveyed historic centres, in order to highlight possibilities towards the definition of conservations’ primer focuses. Therefore, the study emphases on urban context with the complexity of an initial organic settlement with two case studies in north India: Ahmedabad, Gujarat, and Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
