|This chapter discusses the idea of heritage landscapes as expressing a ‘register of transience’. It outlines the interface between old and new material culture and explore the dynamics of uncontrolled urban growth evident in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – locally known as favelas. Cultural materialism is vital to heritage management since, as Mutual explains, heritage buildings contribute to the significance, identity, and physical condition of a given area and enhance values related to history, continuity, familiarity, identity, and most importantly, the social and cultural life of a community. In many places, urban heritage sites remain the location for business and other kinds of exchanges, as well as where services and infrastructure are long and well established. The Portuguese established Rio de Janeiro in 1565. It is located on the southeastern coast of Brazil and is a large and densely populated city today. Rapid urban growth and favela -like communities are apparent in many low- and middle-income countries. © 2023 selection and editorial matter, Steve Brown and Cari Goetcheus; individual chapters, the contributors.
