Yiwen Wang


Yi-Wen Wang holds a PhD in Architecture from the University of Nottingham, UK, and specialises in 20th-century heritage conservation and management. She joined the Department of Urban Planning and Design at XJTLU in 2011 and teaches postgraduate modules on heritage conservation, place-making and urban design. Her research lies in the areas of urban conservation and management, focusing on socio-cultural issues of heritage-led regeneration in both urban and rural contexts. Her research is concerned with protecting unassuming, quotidian structures as heritage and exploring the conservation issues surrounding 20th-century architecture and planning. She is particularly interested in the conflicting interests/voices over the selection/interpretation of buildings/sites as heritage, including listing post-war social housing and reusing obsolete industrial/institutional structures. She has also undertaken practice-based research on introducing incremental physical and socio-economic changes to historic cities to induce bottom-up regeneration.
