HerO Expert Workshop in Vilnius

10 May 2010

The network HerO's 1st Expert Workshop took place in Vilnius, Lithuania on 10-11 May 2010. The conference was dedicated to the theme ‘the visual integrity of historic urban landscapes’. Emphasis has been placed on the following subtopics which have been identified by the HerO partners as being the most relevant:

- Integration of new architecture into the historic cityscape, respecting the historic and spatial characteristics of its setting

- Instruments to protect visual view perspectives, silhouettes, townscape characteristics and panoramas, which strongly contribute to the distinctiveness of the historic urban landscape

- Proper integration of advertisement and commercial signs in public space, without harming the visual integrity of the historic urban landscape
