In the last two decades, architecture has undergone a silent, global revolution. Silent, because it is rarely addressed in academe and in the world of architectural theory. This revolution has thoroughly rewritten the status of architecture's history by placing it on the level of national interest. It has thrust architecture's history - and thus architecture itself - into the realm of modernization and ideology. One of the key players in this is UNESCO and the so–called Heritage List. What is the nature of this historic turn and its philosophical and epistemological consequences for our understanding of architecture in its global role?
