    For the introduction of the Young Researcher in World Heritage of the week, this time we have gone to South Corea, where Hee Joo Kim is doing her fieldwork right now. She is an international researcher graduated in the US (MSc Historic Preservation) and currently doing the Ph.D. in the UK at the Ironbridge International Institute for Cultural Heritage (UK).

    Hee Joo´s  Projects & Interests

    Origin of motivation

    Like many Asian countries, South Korea has experienced unprecedented rapid economic development and urbanisation processes that have led to the destruction of many urban heritage sites in the past fifty years.
