Societies accumulate collective memories in limited urban places. Over time,
places evolve, transform and disappear. What remains is the experiences
and associations accumulated in the collective memory. Therefore, these
accumulations are the very elements that create a sense of belonging in the
city; they constitute the layers of the city and they’re crucial for the individual
to establish cultural bonds and sustain a social life. However, due to the
discontinuation of cultural legacies, the notion of belonging is weakened in each
generation. Consequently, the individual is bound to a solely physical connection
to the city and is externalized from its memories, emotionally and mentally.
