There have been discussions about and processes for deriving value criteria for cultural heritage including modern architecture. Since 1972, the Outstanding Universal Value (OUV) for World Cultural Heritage has been revised several times, focusing on the historical, artistic, scientific, and anthropological viewpoints and based on authenticity and integrity. Since 1944, the selection criteria for listed buildings in the UK have been classified into loose grades, according to their importance. The standards of selection and value assessment have been gradually been specified, dividing criteria principles into legal ideals and general tenets. In addition to the value standards established by these systems, value standards have been also discussed in various fields of studying and managing cultural heritage.
Each value standard is based on an individual’s subjective opinion, even if objective reasoning is used for support. Therefore, various value criteria can be suggested according to age, area, experience, and knowledge; consensus can be changed through discussion, persuasion, and compromise generated by new opinions and changes in society. Thus, value criteria are variable depending on the region, object, and members of society.
