ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENTS:

Mr. Yohei Kiyonaga has made significant contributions to the discourse on architectural heritage preservation through his scholarly publications. In his work “The Japanese Concept of Preservation of Historical Areas and the EAHY,” featured in ‘A Future for Our Past,’ he explores the Japanese approach to preserving historical areas within the context of the European Architectural Heritage Year. In “Securing Traditional Techniques and Materials in Conservation on Architectural Heritage in Japan,” he delves into the preservation of traditional techniques and materials, addressing issues of degradation and technological advancements. Furthermore, in “Toshi no kyojuukankyo to Rekishitekikenzobustu no kyozon,” published in the Journal of Urban Housing Sciences, he elucidates the preservation of historical districts through traditional architectural conservation methods. Through his insightful research, Mr. Kiyonaga enriches the global dialogue on heritage conservation, bridging cultural perspectives and fostering sustainable preservation practices.

Areas of Research:

In contemporary architectural conservation, the principle of reusing original parts remains paramount, even extending to removed elements not immediately reusable due to deterioration. Despite this principle, practical challenges arise, particularly in preserving heavily deteriorated or numerous similar items like roof tiles, posing storage dilemmas. Consequently, a selective preservation approach has emerged, wherein more valuable parts are prioritized based on specific criteria. This pragmatic method has gained traction in conservation practices, yet the historical perspective on the preservation of removed parts, especially concerning selection criteria, remains underexplored in Japan. To address this gap, I conducted comprehensive research, drawing from official administrative documents and examples of national treasures and important cultural properties. This research not only sheds light on the handling of removed parts in Japanese architectural cultural properties but also offers insights into Japan’s unique conservation and repair techniques. To amplify its global impact, publishing this research as an English paper is deemed highly effective for international dissemination and recognition.
