The architectural heritage of all the ARCASIA member countries is rich with the glory of the ancient wisdom of building science as well as with the continuation of those inspirations reflected in the architectural built forms of the present day.

The ARCASIA HERITAGE is a portfolio of some heritage architectural projects from the ARCASIA member countries. It is a collection documenting ten heritage projects from each of the seventeen member countries of ARCASIA. These projects have been selected such that they signify a particular period of architectural achievement, covering from ancient to modern age.
