Olivier Poisson, Conservateur général du patrimoine, Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication (France) presents a lecture on Serial Inscriptions for the World Heritage List : the case of Le Corbusier,  as part of the 8th Montreal Round Table organized by the Canada Research Chair on Built Heritage. He described the evolution of the definition of heritage in a World Heritage context, using examples from France to show the expansion of the concept from individual monuments to groups of buildings to landscapes at a territorial scale. He then explained his country’s approach to nominating the works of architect Le Corbusier to the World Heritage List. The conference took place on 13 March 2013 at the Pavillon de la Faculté de l’aménagement, Université de Montreal.
