520    Situated within the interpretive and critical traditions, 
       this study aims to contribute to one of the continuing 
       primary themes in urban preservation: how to interpret and
       preserve the intangible values of built environments 
520    A comprehensive analysis of dominant theories of urban 
       preservation forms the conceptual framework within which 
       this dissertation takes place. It starts by locating the 
       intellectual context of preservation in North America, and
       examines its basic premises and core issues. It identifies
       three limits to the traditional approach to preservation 
       planning. The complexity and fragility of history, its 
       narrative quality and its particularities, its emotional 
       content and economic values, all connect urban 
       preservation with public history. Therefore, in the spirit
       of communicative democracy and "a shared authority", the 
       study incorporates collective memory as an essential 
       construct  in urban landscapes, and suggests a culturally 
       sensitive narrative approach (CSNA) 
520    The study employs an in-depth case study. The setting is 
       Kensington Market in Toronto, Canada. It examines 
       retrospectively the urban renewal planning of Kensington 
       Market in the 1960s, identifies the pivotal events that 
       prompted the change of urban renewal policies, and 
       demonstrates, through the interpretive policy analysis, 
       that sometimes urban renewal plans that fail to be 
       implemented can become success stories in how to preserve 
       urban neighborhoods as a kind of public history 
520    To probe deeper into the sources of conflict between the 
       professionals and the public, the study further explores 
       the mutual relationship between collective memory and 
       urban landscapes. It takes a selective look at some 
       significant sites of memory, and connects them into a 
       narrative path. Through oral history interviewing, field 
       observation, and material cultural analysis, this part of 
       the analysis constitutes an empirical study of CSNA. A  
       proposition is derived from this critical case study. The 
       study concludes with seven steps of CSNA, a guide for 
       urban landscape preservation and planning
