In the last years, South Africa urban landscape is open territory for development, specially so given the dramatically changed demographics and uses of the inner city. Particularly, in Durban the evolution of the city has been determinate by the social context which creates an indistinct agglomeration. So, fundamentally, the appreciation of the core concern of social cohesion is paramount in establishing what the heritage consists of and being able to define it in multiple ways, rather than in an architectural term which has immediate resonance with an unattainable nostalgia, an unrecognised and irrelevant history, and a perhaps misunderstood historical context.
