《reference》
A system of “national registered cultural property” has been established in 1996, to reflect the recognition of modern architectures’ historical importance. Buildings constructed more than 50 years ago and contributing to modernization are protected using moderate rules.
The law for the protection of cultural properties §56-2
The Minister of Education, culture, sports, Science and technology can register architectural material (except important cultural properties) that are considered necessary as record for preservation and are of practical use.
