Experts stated that during the urban regeneration of Shanghai and Wuhan, several topics need to be explored: the conservation of outstanding historic buildings, enforcement of strict maintenance principles, combination of traditional and modern technologies and selection of suitable technology and materials. Experts also concluded methods for advancing conservation from a theoretical and practical perspective. With support from the government, experts look forward to improvements in the relationship between conservation and the living quality of residents, solutions to the effect of seismic resistance and fire control on the authenticity of conservation projects, and management of the impact of new conservation theories on traditional methods, resulting in new innovative and creative regulations.
