Abstract: (arabic)

مع ظهور فكرة الحفاظ على المباني الأثرية والتراثية بالشكل المعروف، تبنى المعماريون مبدأ الترميم بشكل عام كآلية لصيانة وحفظ هذه المباني، بيد أنه ومع تطور المفاهيم في حقل الحفاظ تحول هذا المفهوم تدريجيا من تضمنه حماية المباني التاريخية إلى مفهوم الحفاظ المستدام ليشمل عملية الإبقاء وصون المنشأ جنبا إلى جنب، مع الأخذ بنظر الاعتبار إدراك القيم المتعلقة به وعلاقته بنسيجه الحضري وخصائص مجتمعه المتواجد ضمنه وارتباطاته به. وتتمثل مبادئ الاستدامة في المسكن التقليدي في توافقه مع البيئة بكل إيجابياتها وسلبياتها وفق إطاري الحماية والتكيف، وهناك العديد من المبادئ الأساسية التي استندت عليها عمارة المسكن التقليدي المتضمنة لمفهوم الاستدامة، وتشمل مبادئ الاستدامة: التخطيط والتعامل مع الموقع، والفكر التصميمي للمسكن التقليدي، والتصميم البيئي والحفاظ على الطاقة، والتهوية الطبيعية في النظم التقليدية، ومواد البناء. كما تتعدد مستويات الحفاظ على التراث العمراني تبعا لحجم ونوع التراث وأهميته، وتتمثل في: الحفاظ على العناصر التراثية، والحفاظ على المبنى الواحد مثل: عمليات الترميم والتجديد للمباني التراثية وتحويلها إلى متاحف أو مزارات سياحية، والحفاظ على مجموعة من المباني، أو منطقة تراثية كاملة. وتنقسم سياسات الحفاظ إلى قسمين هما الحفاظ الوقائي والحفاظ العلاجي الذي يشمل الحماية والحفظ والتدعيم الإنشائي والترميم والاستعادة وإعادة التأهيل والاستنساخ وإعادة الإنشاء، كما تشمل آليات الحفاظ سياسات ودرجات تدخل أخرى كسياسات التجديد والصقل والإصلاح والاحتفاظ وإعادة الأحياء والاسترجاع والاستبدال وإعادة التمثيل وإعادة التطوير.
