A Definition of Historical-Museum Cities [Based on the Paragon City’s Vision]
Unlike the traditional view to the museums, which knew the museums as buildings to preserve and exhibit the valuable historic, cultural, artistic, etc phenomena, the modern approach to museums has been changed and takes a meaning more than just a single building. A city or a district with valuable cultural and historic characteristics can be known and act as a museum.
Museum-city is a city where its buildings and spaces preserve their historic and cultural situation and act as a living history. Museum-quarters are specific geographical districts in the city that include museums, historic and cultural buildings, and the spaces that cover them. In this quarter, besides visiting the cultural heritage, people can enjoy the urban space and experience social life.
A Definition of ECO Museum Cities [Based on the Paragon City’s Vision]
Eco-Museums are the district that has conservative values, natural and cultural characteristics and attractions, harmonic with nature architecture and most important of all, they are live sites. This means the local communities with special culture and customs live in these places. These areas usually don’t have any specific geographical boundaries. They act as a way to introduce and understand the moral heritage and protect the local communities’ culture.
According to the procedure of selection of the Paragon City, the registration has been done by the municipality and world heritage of the cities and the city’s information has been evaluated by a specialized committee who was invited by 2A Magazine [Organizer], hence, the Paragon Cities have been selected based on the maximum scores.
