The UNESCO General Conference of November 1983 adopted the resolution commending all Member States to declare 18th April of each year as ‘International Monuments and Sites Day’. 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of both Singapore and the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS). In celebration of this dual golden anniversary, ICOMOS Singapore joins the National Museum of Singapore, and the National Heritage Board in celebrating World Heritage Day with a symposium on heritage in Singapore. Themed and titled ‘Heritage in Singapore: Saving History to Build a Nation’, the conference brought together Singapore’s leading practitioners in the heritage scene, drawing from both ICOMOS members and colleagues from the National Heritage Board, Urban Redevelopment Authority and the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies. We are pleased to present the symposium papers in this volume.
