Preserving old heritage buildings (depending on the type of buildings) is a tedious, most often mundane and sometimes meaningless architectural pursuit that is best left to pure conservators or museologists. It gets a bit more exciting and meaningful when the approach is of adaptive re-use.

Fortunately, there is still a strong interest to re-enact the heritage of the past. Some of this can be creatively adapted in design through further deliberation and development of the architectural heritage language itself with the deployment of modern materials and technology. This is probably how social responsibility should rest in architecture – promoting cultures and traditions, and most importantly, identity. It creates places and spaces that are unique to the nations of the world.
