Buildings can undeniably be reproduced, but only as a result of our knowledge, not as a source for it. Their historicity is not (re)producible. Therefore, it seems misleading to designate them as monuments or heritage. Although their design features hark back to a historical basis, they are not inherited because the object meant to be handed down was destroyed by either nature or, worse, human failure. But these standards as set by the Venice Charter became subject to challenge before too long.
