Design and its links to Research

My thesis is looking at the definition of heritage, especially in terms of how the materiality of heritage contributes to the definition itself. My argument is that heritage is not static.

In terms of design, what I am trying to create is a temporary scaffolding which focuses on, instead of the heavy permanence of heritage, the lightness and changing nature of material itself. That the notion of permanence is a add-on or an edited method of perceiving heritage.
