The Getty Conservation Institute has released a free publication to help assess 20th century heritage sites. This publication is called The Twentieth-Century Historic Thematic Framework: A Tool for Assessing Heritage Places.
According to the Getty Institute’s website, the publication:
“[…] identifies and analyzes the principal social, technological, political, and economic drivers that have shaped the buildings, cities, industries, and landscapes of the twentieth century, emphasizing global forces, trends, and phenomena that have shaped the built environment.”
The publication builds its titular framework with 10 themes, like urbanization and the aftermath of war. This project is a collaboration between the Getty Institute and the ICOMOS Twentieth-Century Heritage International Scientific Committee. It can be downloaded for free here or here.
