Old Town Lunenburg

Old Town Lunenburg

Lunenburg is the best surviving example of a planned British colonial settlement in North America. Established in 1753, it has retained its original layout and overall appearance, based on a rectangular grid pattern drawn up in the home country. The inhabitants have managed to safeguard the city's identity throughout the centuries by preserving the wooden architecture of the houses, some of which date from the 18th century.

Le Vieux Lunenburg

Le Vieux Lunenburg offre le meilleur exemple encore existant d'un établissement colonial britannique planifié en Amérique du Nord. Fondé en 1753, il conserve intacts sa structure d'origine, obéissant à un plan en damier conçu en métropole, ainsi que son aspect général. La population a su préserver l'identité de la ville au cours des siècles en sauvegardant l'architecture de bois de ses maisons, dont certaines datent du XVIIe siècle.

مدينة لونينبورغ القديمة

تعطي مدينة لونينبورغ القديمة المثال الأفضل حتى اليوم عن مدينة مستعمرة بريطانية منظمة في أميركا الشمالية. تأسست في العام 1753 وهي لا تزال تحافظ على شكلها العام وهيكليتها الأصلية المطابقة لتخطيط على شكل مربّعات منسّقة تمّ تصميمه في البلد الأصلي. ولقد نجح سكان لونينبورغ القديمة في الحفاظ على هوية المدينة على مرّ العصور من خلال صون الهندسة الخشبية لبيوتها، ومنها ما يرقى إلى القرن السابع عشر.

卢嫩堡旧城
Исторический город Луненберг

Луненберг – это лучший из дошедших до наших дней примеров британских колониальных поселений в Северной Америке. Основанный в 1753 г., город сохранил свою первоначальную планировку и общий облик, определенный перпендикулярной решеткой улиц, проект которой был разработан в метрополии. Жителям удалось сберечь своеобразие города, сохранив архитектуру деревянных зданий, отдельные из которых были построены еще в XVIII в.

Ciudad vieja de Lunenburgo

Lunenburgo es el mejor ejemplo existente de un asentamiento colonial brití¡nico planificado en América del Norte. Fundada en 1753, la ciudad conserva incólumes su aspecto general y su trazado primigenio en forma de damero, que fue diseñado en la metrópoli. La población ha sabido preservar la identidad de la ciudad a lo largo de los siglos, conservando la arquitectura de madera de sus viviendas, algunas de las cuales datan del siglo XVIII.

ルーネンバーグ旧市街
Oude stad van Lunenburg

Lunenburg is het best bewaarde voorbeeld van een Britse koloniale nederzetting in Noord-Amerika. De oude stad werd in 1753 gesticht en heeft haar oorspronkelijke ontwerp en uitstraling behouden. Het ontwerp is gebaseerd op een rechthoekig rasterpatroon opgesteld in het land van herkomst (Groot-Brittannië). Door de zorg voor de houten huizenarchitectuur – waarvan sommige dateren uit de 18e eeuw – zijn de bewoners erin geslaagd om de identiteit van de stad veilig te stellen door de eeuwen heen. De economische basis van de stad is van oudsher de Atlantische visserij.

Brief synthesis

Old Town Lunenburg is the best surviving example of a planned British colonial settlement in North America. Established in 1753, it has retained its original layout and overall appearance, based on a rectangular grid pattern drawn up in the home country. The inhabitants have safeguarded the town’s identity throughout the centuries by preserving the wooden architecture of the houses and public buildings, some of which date from the 18th century and constitute an excellent example of a sustained vernacular architectural tradition. Its economic basis has traditionally been the offshore Atlantic fishery, the future of which is highly questionable at the present time.
