dc.description.abstractThe profession of architectural conservation is a well established field and the need to conserve and preserve monuments as part of our urban cultural landscape is well recognized. However, what is less realized is the fact that conservation of the landscape setting of these monuments is equally important. Based on Aldo Rossi’s theory that the presence of monuments and large buildings gives the city its character, as they embody the memory of the city, this thesis addresses the issue of conservation of the contiguous settings of a monument, as an important part of conserving the monument. In particular, it addresses the issue of envisioning a cultural landscape in the absence of archeological data and records about a site. It identifies the Mansagar Lake Project in Jaipur, India, as a contiguous setting for the Jal Mahal monument and demonstrates with the use of design archetypes, the relevance of memory in the cultural landscape of Jaipur.
