Reunión sobre los sitios megalíticos y
la Convención del Patrimonio Mundial
De los Círculos megalíticos de
Senegambia (Senegal), a Stonehenge, Avebury y sitios asociados (Reino Unido), pasando
por los Templos megalíticos
de Malta, la Lista del Patrimonio Mundial de la UNESCO
cuenta un total de seis* sitios
directamente relacionados con
el megalitismo. Otros ocho**
están en las Listas Indicativas
de sitios que los Estados consideran con potencial Valor Universal Excepcional como para
presentar algún día la candidatura de ingreso.

del Boyne, Brú na Bóinne, en Irlanda, sitio integrante del Patrimonio
Mundial de la UNESCO
Los complejos megalíticos son representativos de un fenómeno universal presente
desde hace diez mil años en sociedades humanas de todos los continentes. Sin embargo, existe un consenso científico respecto a la escasa representación en la Lista del
Patrimonio Mundial de estos lugares que son testimonio de las primeras formas de
vivir y conceptualizar grandes territorios y que, por su antigüedad y monumentalidad,
son frágiles y están expuestos a múltiples causas de deterioro.
Con objeto de examinar la recurrencia del fenómeno pero también las singularidades a
él aparejadas a lo largo del tiempo y en distintas áreas geográficas, así como de discutir sobre los modos de cooperación científica para mejorar su conservación y gestión,
el Centro del Patrimonio Mundial de la UNESCO y la Junta de Andalucía (España),
a través de la Dirección General de Bienes Culturales de la Consejería de Cultura,
organizanizaron del 20 al 24 de septiembre una reunión internacional de expertos en
Málaga y Antequera.
Cuarenta especialistas y gestores de sitios del patrimonio mundial analizaron qué es lo
que define los sitios megalíticos y qué modos de colaboración entre ciencia y conservación del patrimonio pueden contribuir a preservarlos. Se trata de mejorar la protección, la investigación, la conservación y la difusión del patrimonio megalítico mundial
para poder articular medidas globales de conocimiento y preservación.
En el curso de la reunión se presentaron estudios de casos de prácticamente todos los sitios del planeta relacionados con el
megalitismo, entre ellos: las tumbas megalíticas del Valle de Zhane, en Rusia (a cargo del profesor Viktor Trifonov, miembro de la Academia de Ciencias de Rusia), los sitios megalíticos de Carnac, en Francia, (a cargo del arqueólogo francés
Charles Tanguy Le Roux), el sitio megalítico de Senegambia, en Senegal (a cargo de Sydou Nourou Kane, su director de
conservación), el sitio arqueo-astrológico de Kokino, en la ex República Yugoslava de Macedonia, (a cargo de la profesora
Kristina Briceva), la reserva nacional histórica y arqueológica “Stone Tomb” en Ucrania, (a cargo de Mykhailov Yaroslav),
los megalitos de Bouar, en la República Centroafricana, a cargo de Bernard Simiti, y los moai de Isla de Pascua, en Chile,
a cargo de Sonia Hanoa Cardinali y Ninoska Cuadros Huke.
Durante la reunión los expertos tuvieron la oportunidad de visitar y conocer los avances de la investigación y gestión del
conjunto de los Dólmenes de Antequera (Málaga), así como de avanzar la propuesta del análisis comparativo para establecer la singularidad de sus manifestaciones. Andalucía, sede de la reunión, es una región rica en sitios megalíticos, por lo que
la reunión incluirá además una visita de estudio a los conjuntos megalíticos de Gor-Gorafe, en Granada, y al yacimiento
prehistórico de Orce (Granada), estrechamente vinculado a la Evolución Humana.
La reunión tendrá lugar en el Museo Picasso de Málaga. El 20 de septiembre a las 18h00 se celebraró una conferencia de
prensa de presentación en presencia del Consejero de Cultura de la Junta de Andalucía, Paulino Plata, del Secretario General de Políticas Culturales, Bartolomé Ruiz, y de la Directora General de Bellas Artes y Bienes Culturales del Ministerio de
Cultura, Ángeles Albert, acompañados de Nuria Sanz, encargada del programa de Prehistoria en el Centro del Patrimonio
Mundial de la UNESCO.

Mesolithic 'rest stop' found at new Sainsbury's site - Nairn - United Kingdom
The supermarket and a filling station are being constructed on the outskirts of Nairn, at a cost of
about £20m.
Headland Archaeologists investigated the site ahead of building work.
They radiocarbon-dated the hearth to the Mesolithic period, which started as the last Ice Age ended
about 12,000 years ago.
In a report published on Highland Council's Historic Environment Record site, the archaeologists said
the fire appeared to have been made to provide heat and not cooking, because no food waste was
found.

La colección Morton de cráneos del museo Penn se encuentra en el centro de
la controversia – Filadelfia- Pensilvania – EE.UU.
Samuel George Morton, un médico y antropólogo físico del siglo diecinueve, más
conocido por sus mediciones de cráneos humanos, se ha considerado durante mucho
tiempo como el ejemplo más destacado entre los más eminentes biólogos evolutivos
del mundo y los historiadores científicos. Morton manipuló sus datos sobre el tamaño
del cráneo para que encajaran en sus preconcebidas y racistas ideas sobre la variación
humana.

Le Nil ne s'est pas toujours écoulé au pied des temples égyptiens de Karnak - Egypte
Situés au cœur de la vallée du Nil, les temples de Karnak ont généré de nombreuses théories quant à leur implantation
originelle : ont-ils été construits sur des îles sableuses au milieu du fleuve ou étaient-ils localisés au pied du Nil comme
c'est le cas aujourd'hui ? Ni l'un ni l'autre : des études géomorphologiques, paléoenvironnementales et sédimentologiques
menées par Matthieu Ghilardi, chercheur au centre européen de recherche et d'enseignement des géosciences de
l'environnement (CEREGE) (CNRS/Universités de Provence et Paul Cézanne/IRD/Collège de France) montrent qu'au
moment de leur édification (en 2000 avant JC) le Nil en était distant de 400 à 500 mètres. Ce n'est que 400 ans plus tard
que le fleuve s'en rapprochera suite à un mouvement hydrodynamique. Ces travaux sont publiés dans la revue Journal of
Archaeological Science.

El GHF (Global Heritage Fund) comienza la preservación de la antigua Ur- Irak
En Mayo, en el seminario de la GHF sobre la conservación del patrimonio global y el desarrollo
sostenible en Nueva York, el arqueólogo Abdulamir Hamdani presentó un informe exhaustivo
sobre los sitios patrimonio iraquíes de mayor envergadura- la antigua ciudad de Ur, hogar del
zigurat más antiguo y grande del mundo.
Hamdani contó la historia de la antigua ciudad desde sus tempranos comienzos hasta los
tiempos en que era capital del imperio mesopotámico, hasta las amenazas a las que se
enfrenta hoy en día y las medidas necesarias para protegerla. Un mes después, Hamdani y el
sitio fueron objeto de un artículo excelente AFP y este verano él mismo liderará los trabajos de conservación como director
del proyecto para GHF Ur.

Autun: la plus ancienne université de France ? - Autun - France
Si le terme d'université n'est pas exact (il date du Moyen-Age), il pourrait s'agir d'un lieu
d'enseignement romain, destiné à l'élite gallo-romaine.
Si c'est le cas, la découverte, faite par le service municipal d'archéologie lors de sondages
préalables à la construction d'une médiathèque et d'une "maison de l'enfance", est
exceptionnelle.
La ville d'Autun (alors Augustodunum), fondée sous le règne d'Auguste (- 27 à 14 ap. J.-C.),
possède de nombreux vestiges de l'époque romaine.
Une fois écartées les hypothèses d'un sanctuaire, de thermes ou d'un forum, et après avoir consulté d'autres spécialistes,
le responsable du service municipal d'archéologie, Yannick Labaune, en est convaincu: il pourrait s'agir des célèbres
"écoles méniennes", citées dans des textes de l'Antiquité mais jamais retrouvées jusqu'ici. L'historien latin Tacite (55-120
ap. J.-C.) disait ainsi de ces écoles qu'elles accueillaient "les plus nobles rejetons des Gaules".

Les Russes pensent avoir retrouvé les restes de princes Romanov - SaintPétersbourg - Fédération de Russie
Des archéologues russes pensent avoir retrouvé les restes de membres de la famille
impériale exécutés par les Bolcheviks et jetés dans des fosses communes mises au jour
par hasard dans la forteresse Pierre-et-Paul de Saint-Pétersbourg.
"Selon des témoignages sûrs, quatre grands-ducs Romanov ont été exécutés en 1919
dans la forteresse Pierre-et-Paul. Les restes de Gueorgui Mikhaïlovitch, Nikolaï
Mikhaïlovitch, Dmitri Konstantinovitch et Pavel Alexandrovitch se trouvent
probablement parmi ceux que nous avons trouvés", a affirmé à l'AFP Vladimir Kildiouchevski, un archéologue en charge
des fouilles. Les restes d'une centaine de personnes fusillées ont été retrouvés sur ce site ces derniers mois.

Grotte de Lascaux : une première visite sous haute surveillance - France
Fermée depuis 1963 au grand public, la grotte de Lascaux a ouvert ses portes le 16 juin dernier, pour
une première visite placée sous haute surveillance. De multiples précautions sont nécessaires à la
préservation de la célèbre grotte vieille de quelque 17.000 années.
Le jeudi 16 juin, la Grotte de Lascaux a ouvert ses portes à une poignée de journalistes pour une visite
visant à mettre un terme au débat sur l'état de préservation du site préhistorique. Une visite organisée
en présence du préhistorien Jean Clottes et de la conservatrice du site, Muriel Mauriac. Comme le
rapporte le site du journal Sud-Ouest, il est désormais nécessaire de porter un équipement complet pour pouvoir pénétrer
dans la grotte. Vêtus d'une combinaison stérile, de gants en latex, de chaussures couvertes de deux protections, les
visiteurs doivent passer quatre sas fermés par de lourdes portes avant de pouvoir admirer les ornements de la grotte
préhistorique dont la température intérieure est soigneusement maintenue à 12,3 °C. Bien sûr, appareil photo et caméra
sont proscrits.

National Geographic Naked Science: World's Oldest Child
Did ancient children play, learn and laugh the way children do today? A Moroccan skull, more than one hundred thousand
years old, is revealed to be that of a 6-year-old child. Dental examinations confirm that the child lived and died well before
the founding of modern religion, the construction of Egypt's pyramids and even the advent of agriculture. A scientific team
works to decipher the mysteries of this lost child's life.

Discovery of limestone blocks believed to have belonged to King Osorkon II at San ElHagar - Tanis - Egypt
A discovery of hundreds of limestone blocks believed to have belonged to King Osorkon II has

been made at San El-Hagar (Tanis) in Egypt.
Usermaatre Setepenamun Osorkon II was a pharaoh of the Twenty-second Dynasty of Ancient
Egypt and the son of Takelot I and Queen Kapes. He ruled Egypt around 872 BC to 837 BC
from Tanis, the capital of this Dynasty.
After succeeding his father, he was faced with the competing rule of his cousin, king Harsiese
A, who controlled both Thebes and the Western Oasis of Egypt. Osorkon feared the serious challenge posed by Harsiese’s
kingship to his authority but, when Harsiese conveniently died in 860 BC, Osorkon II ensured that this problem would not
recur by appointing his own son Nimlot C as the next High Priest of Amun at Thebes.

Las excavaciones de los arqueólogos en la histórica Annapolis revela un rico y sorprendente hallazgo.
An archaeological team from the University of Maryland is uncovering an unexpectedly rich haul of household materials
from an historic African American home in Annapolis – with one more week to go in their excavation.
The team is working at the James Holliday House in Annapolis – a middle class home purchased in 1850 by one of the first
African Americans to work for the U.S. Naval Academy. They say their finds detail how a well-off African American family
adapted a middle class lifestyle to the realities of post-Civil War Annapolis. Also, they are exploring the family’s marital ties
to the city’s Filipino community.

Los arqueólogos encuentran dos esculturas prehispánicas que ofrecen una mejor comprensión de la
civilización maya. Municipio de Ocosingo - Chiapas - Mexico
Two Prehispanic sculptures made out of limestone that represent war captives and a pair of tableaux that marked the
Ballgame, were found by Mexican specialists from the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) at Tonina
Archaeological Zone, in Ocosingo Municipality, Chiapas.
The discovery confirms the alliance between Lordships of Copan, in Honduras, and Palenque, in Mexico at the war that
Palenque fought against Tonina for 26 years (688 to 714 AD) to control the Usumacinta River.
Sculptures of the prisoners of Copan and both tableaux, of an approximate age of 1300 years, were found buried in late
May 2011, to the south of the Ballgame Court. “All the pieces were found broken: the tableaux in more than 30 fragments,
one sculpture in 20 pieces and the other was found complete but presents 3 fractures”, informed Dr. Juan Yadeun,
responsible of the Archaeological Project at Tonina.

Metropolitan Museum and Egyptian Government Announce Initiative to Recognize
Egypt's Title to 19 Objects Originally from Tutankhamun's Tomb
Thomas P. Campbell, Director of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and Zahi
Hawass, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities of Egypt, announced jointly
today that, effective immediately, the Museum will acknowledge Egypt's title to 19 ancient
Egyptian objects in its collection since early in the 20th century. All of these small-scale
objects, which range from study samples to a three-quarter-inch-high bronze dog and a
sphinx bracelet-element, can be attributed with certainty to Tutankhamun's tomb, which was
discovered by Howard Carter in 1922 in the Valley of the Kings. The Museum initiated this formal acknowledgment after
renewed, in-depth research by two of its curators substantiated the history of the objects.

templo de Babilonia
Babilonia representa uno de los enclaves arqueológicos más importantes del mundo. La fama
de Babilonia se extiende más allá de su antigüedad, hace más de 4000 años. Babilonia alcanzó
fama miliar, fue la capital de un amplio imperio, y contribuyó enormemente a nuestro
conocimiento del mundo antiguo mediante el estudio del Código de Hammuabi, un conjunto de
leyes del siglo dieciocho AC mediante las cuales se regía la sociedad del momento. Babilonia

Inauguración de Huaca de la Luna –Nuevo circuito turístico – Perú
Tras la conquista española, estos sitios ceremoniales fueron abandonados y durante los siglos
venideros no se mantuvieron de forma adecuada, por lo que yacieron expuestos a los
elementos, sufriendo la erosión del viento y el fenómeno de El Niño. Por ello, las estructuras de
adobe se deterioraron y las plataformas más elevadas y los elementos superficiales se
perdieron. Huaca de la Luna es uno de los recursos precolombinos más significativos de la
región y es un sito de cierta envergadura que requiere trabajo de conservación continuo
incluyendo encuestas, documentación, consolidación, y la estabilización del material
arquitectónico y decorativo excavado. Las estrategias equilibradas de excavación, conservación e interpretación que se han
aplicado aquí han supuesto un aumento exponencial del turismo local e internacional para el sitio, llevando consigo el
desarrollo económico y oportunidades de trabajo para las comunidades locales. Huaca de la Luna constituye un modelo
para integrar la arqueología, la conservación, el desarrollo de un turismo sostenible, y ha recibido importantes
reconocimientos internacionales- fue declarada uno de los diez lugares mejor conservados en Ibero América- por el
secretario de Turismo de España y recibió el premio Reina Sofía a la Conservación y Restauración en 2006.

OBITUARY - Puerto Rican Scholar Ricardo Alegria Dies at 90 - Puerto Rico - USA
Ricardo Alegria, a Puerto Rican scholar known for his pioneering studies of the island's native Taino culture and who is
credited with preserving the capital's colonial district, died Thursday. He was 90.
Alegria died at the Cardiovascular Center of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean from complications of heart disease, said his
son, Ricardo Alegria Pons. The elder Alegria had been treated for two weeks at the hospital in June and then was
hospitalized again Sunday with chest pains, his son said.
"Thanks to his long life of 90 years, he has had a major impact on all aspects of the culture of all Puerto Ricans," his son
told reporters. "That work and dedication and love of his country does not disappear with his death."

In Ancient Metropolis in Southern Israel, Diggers Unearth the Bible's Bad Guys - Tel el-Safi - Israel
At the remains of an ancient metropolis in southern Israel, archaeologists are piecing together the history of a people
remembered chiefly as the bad guys of the Hebrew Bible.
The city of Gath, where the annual digging season began this week, is helping scholars paint a more nuanced portrait of
the Philistines, who appear in the biblical story as the perennial enemies of the Israelites.

Close to three millennia ago, Gath was on the frontier between the Philistines, who occupied the Mediterranean coastal
plain, and the Israelites, who controlled the inland hills. The city's most famous resident, according to the Book of Samuel,
was Goliath — the giant warrior improbably felled by the young shepherd David and his sling.

By providing a mobile CT scan unit free of charge to Chicago's famed The Field Museum for a series of mummy scans this
month, Genesis Medical Imaging, Inc. has helped discover ancient secrets, and opened the door to new mysteries.
Field scientists were surprised to find only a skull and legs inside the wrappings of one Egyptian mummy and the baskets
of four Peruvian specimens simply empty, with no mummies inside. Yet it was all instructive for the museum's researchers,
who after several days of scanning objects more than 2,000 years old are more certain of what their collection actually
holds.

University of Sydney Exhibition Offers Clues on Mysterious Pre-Roman Civilisation Sydney - Australia
The Etruscans – based in what is now known as Tuscany – were the most powerful
Mediterranean people in the 6th century BC before being conquered by the Romans and
incorporated into the Roman Republic. Their empire was built on mineral wealth, enabling
the development of elaborate cities and a powerful oligarchy which greatly influenced the
Roman Empire.
While the Etruscans’ early dominance is undisputed, little is known about who they were and
where they came from. There language is like no other spoken then, or since, in Europe. No Etruscan literature or major
buildings survive, and much Etruscan art – mostly made from stone, wood and terracotta - was summarily destroyed by
the Romans.

Saudi Arabia discovers 9,000 year old civilization
Saudi Arabia is excavating a new archeological site that will show horses were domesticated 9,000 years ago in the
Arabian peninsula, the country's antiquities expert said Wednesday.
The discovery of the civilization, named al-Maqar after the site's location, will challenge the theory that the domestication
of animals took place 5,500 years ago in Central Asia, said Ali al-Ghabban, Vice-President of Antiquities and Museums at
the Saudi Commission for Tourism & Antiquities.

Découverte de dessins de femmes nues datant du paléolithique - Bavière - Allemagne
Des dessins qui dateraient de quelque 12.000 années ont été retrouvés dans une grotte près de
Bamberg, en Bavière (sud). Ils auraient pu servir à des rites de fécondité. Les fouilles se poursuivent.
Ces dessins sont notamment « des représentations féminines schématiques et des symboles nonidentifiés », selon Beate Zarges, de l'Office régional pour la protection des monuments historiques,
qui confirmait des informations de l'hebdomadaire Die Zeit.
Les auteurs de ces dessins se seraient inspirés de formes rocheuses évoquant des seins ou des pénis
pour réaliser leurs oeuvres.
Selon l'archéologue et géologue Bernhard Häck, interrogé par Die Zeit, la grotte qui comprend une chambre de 5 m de
long, aurait pu servir à des rituels de fécondité : « C'est un lieu plein de magie », a-t-il déclaré au magazine.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Homeland Security
Investigations (HSI) help Egyptian law enforcement agencies counter antiquities
trafficking
Egyptian archaeological sites, storerooms and other locations are under serious threats of
pillage, theft and illicit trafficking. That's why U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) joined forces with the U.S. Embassy to Egypt to present
a four day workshop titled "Countering Antiquities Trafficking at Egypt's Ports and Borders."
The workshop was designed to help improve Egypt's capacity to prevent the illegal export of
cultural property through more effective implementation of export controls and law enforcement resources. The conference
also aimed to increase dialogue and cooperation between Egyptian law enforcement agencies and provide a basis for a
continued working relationship between ICE's attaché office in Cairo and Egyptian law enforcement.

Italian Officials Unveil a Massive Statue Believed to Be of Roman Emperor Caligula - Rome - Italy
Officials on Tuesday unveiled a massive statue believed to be that of Roman emperor Caligula sitting on a throne and said
it came from an illegal dig south of Rome that may have been the site of one of his palaces.
The statue, which had been broken in several large pieces and a head, was first found last January when Finance Police
stopped it from being smuggled out of the country by boat at a port near Rome.
The operation led to the arrest of two so-called "tomb raiders" -- those who dig up the countryside looking for
archaeological treasures to sell on the black market.

Antropólogos mexicanos descubren evidencias de un pueblo caníbal
Un grupo de antropólogos mexicanos anunció hoy que mediante estudios osteológicos
descubrió que los antiguos grupos xiximes, que habitaron hacia 1450 una serie de
casas construidas en el interior de cuevas, consumían carne humana durante un ritual
asociado con la guerra y el ciclo agrícola.
Tras estudiar por cuatro años cuarenta huesos humanos hallados en la Cueva del
Maguey, en las montañas de la Sierra de Durango, en el norte de México, los
investigadores concluyeron que cuando menos el 80 % de esos restos "tiene huellas de
corte y de haber sido hervidos", señaló el Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (INAH) en un comunicado.

Ägyptisches Museum in Berlin Lends Colossal Statue of Pharaoh to Metropolitan Museum of Art for Ten Years New York City - New York State - USA
A monumental ancient Egyptian statue of a seated pharaoh —probably Amenemhat II —will be lent to The Metropolitan
Museum of Art by Berlin’s renowned Ägyptisches Museum und Papyrussammlung, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin Preussischer Kulturbesitz for a period of ten years, beginning this month. The ten-foot-tall, nearly nine-ton, 4,000-year-old
sculpture entered the Berlin museum’s collection in 1837. Because of a construction project now underway —to renovate
the courtyard on Museumsinsel (Museum Island) where the artwork has most recently been displayed— the statue had to
be moved, thereby providing the opportunity for this long-term loan. The sculpture will go on view in the Metropolitan’s
Great Hall for approximately one year before it is moved into The Lila Acheson Wallace Galleries of Egyptian Art. The
Middle Kingdom sculpture is an outstanding example of ancient Egypt’s magnificent colossal statuary, of which very few
examples can be found in American museums.

Italian Archaeologists Dig Through Ancient Rome and Find Mosaic Depicting Apollo - Rome - Italy
Excavations in the bowels of an ancient Roman hill have turned up a well-preserved, late 1st century wall mosaic with a
figure of Apollo, nude except for a colorful mantle over a shoulder.
Archaeologists and city officials unveiled the recent find to reporters Friday on the Oppian Hill.
The mosaic-covered wall is 16 meters (53 feet) wide and at least 2 meters (6.6 feet) high. Officials think the wall continues
down some 8 meters (26.5 feet) more.
Archaeologists say the wall appears to be in a tunnel built to help support Trajan's Baths, named for the emperor who
ruled from 98 till 117. The mosaic, which also depicts a Muse, apparently embellished a room where wealthy Romans
gathered to hear music and discuss art.

Mexican Archaeologists Discover Two Partially-Mummified Bodies in the Cueva del Gigante - Guerrero Chihuahua - Mexico
Archaeologists from the National Institute of Anthropology and History found two human corpses that were partially
mummified and a raramuri ancestor’s skeleton in the Cueva El Gigante (Giant’s Cave), located in Guerrero, in the
Tarahumara Sierra in Chihuahua. The two mummies are now added to another eight that were found in the same place
late last year.
According to the specialists, the finding of the mummified individuals, which are thought to be between 800 and 1000
years old, are part of a Pre-hispanic burial ground, since, between 2010 and 2011, ten mummies and thirteen skeletons
have been found in the cave.

Archaeologists Locate Ruins of Gladiator School - Vienna - Austria
Archeologists say they have located and excavated the ruins of a massive amphitheater used to train gladiators east of
Vienna in what they call a "sensational discovery."
They say that the ruins located through ground radar measurements rival the Colosseum and the Ludus Magnus in Rome in
their structure. The Ludus Magnus is the largest of the gladiatorial arenas in the Italian capital, while the Colosseum is the
largest amphitheater ever built in the Roman Empire.
A statement Tuesday from the Carnuntum archaeological park gave no details when the find was located and excavated. It
said the site will be presented to the media Monday.
The park — part of a former Roman settlement — is about 60 kilometers (35 miles) east of Vienna.

Tenfold Population Increase in Western Europe at the Neandertal-to-Modern Human Transition
By Paul Mellars & Jennifer C. French
European Neandertals were replaced by modern human populations from Africa ~40,000 years ago. Archaeological
evidence from the best-documented region of Europe shows that during this replacement human populations increased by
one order of magnitude, suggesting that numerical supremacy alone may have been a critical factor in facilitating this
replacement.

Low tide reveals rare marine reptile fossil find - Alaska - USA
When Ken Olson of The Museum of the Rockies was planning a trip to salvage a plesiosaur
fossil from the Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge in Montana -- an experience that
would include a mile-and-a-half trek each way through knee deep mud, deerfly swarms and a
field of chest-high sweet clover -- he wanted to include one of the world's marine reptile
experts.
"I know just the person to lead the expedition to excavate this creature," he said.
He meant Patrick Druckenmiller, the earth sciences curator at the University of Alaska Museum
of the North, who is also part of a team excavating plesiosaurs from an island in Norway and who recently helped remove a
complete thalattosaur from a rocky underwater outcrop in Southeast Alaska. In May a member of a geological team
noticed something on that beach during an extremely low tide.

An Archaeopteryx-like theropod from China and the origin of Avialae - The People's Republic of China
Xing Xu, Hailu You, Kai Du & Fenglu Han
Archaeopteryx is widely accepted as being the most basal bird, and accordingly it is regarded as central to understanding
avialan origins; however, recent discoveries of derived maniraptorans have weakened the avialan status of Archaeopteryx.
Here we report a new Archaeopteryx-like theropod from China. This find further demonstrates that many features formerly
regarded as being diagnostic of Avialae, including long and robust forelimbs, actually characterize the more inclusive group
Paraves (composed of the avialans and the deinonychosaurs). Notably, adding the new taxon into a comprehensive
phylogenetic analysis shifts Archaeopteryx to the Deinonychosauria. Despite only tentative statistical support, this result

challenges the centrality of Archaeopteryx in the transition to birds. If this new phylogenetic hypothesis can be confirmed
by further investigation, current assumptions regarding the avialan ancestral condition will need to be re-evaluated.

Stone tools shed light on early human migrations
The discovery of stone axes in the same sediment layer as cruder tools indicates that hominins with
differing tool-making technologies may have coexisted.
The axes, found in Kenya by Christopher Lepre, a palaeontologist at Columbia University in New York,
and his team are estimated to be around 1.76 million years old. That's 350,000 years older than any
other complex tools yet discovered.

Australopithecus Sediba Hand Demonstrates Mosaic Evolution of Locomotor and Manipulative Abilities Malapa - South Africa
By Tracy L. Kivell, Job M. Kibii, Steven E. Churchill, Peter Schmid & Lee R. Berger
Hand bones from a single individual with a clear taxonomic affiliation are scarce in the hominin fossil record, which has
hampered understanding the evolution of manipulative abilities in hominins. Here we describe and analyze a nearly
complete wrist and hand of an adult female [Malapa Hominin 2 (MH2)] Australopithecus sediba from Malapa, South Africa
(1.977 million years ago). The hand presents a suite of Australopithecus-like features, such as a strong flexor apparatus
associated with arboreal locomotion, and Homo-like features, such as a long thumb and short fingers associated with
precision gripping and possibly stone tool production. Comparisons to other fossil hominins suggest that there were at least
two distinct hand morphotypes around the Plio-Pleistocene transition. The MH2 fossils suggest that Au. sediba may
represent a basal condition associated with early stone tool use and production.

Libya's other wealth: Archaeological treasures - An interview of Mr. Francesco
Bandarin, UNESCO Assistant Director-General for Culture on CNN.com
UNESCO is like the world's watchdog for protecting historical cultural sites and
property.
You might think the worst time for preserving cultural sites are when the shooting and
the bombing are under way. Not so, Bandarin said, from his office in Paris.
it's already happened in Libya. Bandarin said someone stole the most important
treasure of gold and silver from the time of Alexander the Great from Benghazi -- after
the city was liberated from Gadhafi.
Gadhafi's forces and the opposition fought around the Roman ruins at Leptis Magna and at the ancient theater and temples
at Sabratha. It's not yet clear how much damage there is.

The Politics and Practice of Archaeology in Conflict
Authors: Perring, Dominic1; van der Linde, Sjoerd2
Source: Conservation and Management of Archaeological Sites, Volume 11, Numbers 3-4, 2009 , pp. 197-213(17)
Publisher: Maney Publishing
This introductory paper reviews recent writings on archaeology and conflict, setting the other contributions to this volume
into context. We draw attention to the political nature of archaeological work, and to the problems of reconciling
professional interest in the protection and management of cultural property with needs of communities affected by war. We
focus on two areas of current concern — the ethical and moral dimension to professional conduct, and the need to
reconcile post-processual critiques of practice with the need to draw on empirical science in the competent conduct of work
— finding middle ground in both areas of debate. We also conclude that heritage management and archaeological practice
have an important contribution to make in the rehabilitation of war-torn societies, but that the top-down approaches that
are most widely favoured can fail to meet the needs of local communities. Best archaeological practice should build from an
understanding of local socio-political and cultural power structures, draw on assessments of need, and build upon a notion

work than that of 'curation'.

The Nan Madol Archaeological Site of Pohnpei - Federated States of Micronesia
The stone city of Nan Madol, in Pohnpei, one of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), consists of 92
man-made islands built on a coral reef at the edge of a mangrove swamp. The buildings of this mysterious
1,000-year-old site, which was the ceremonial and political seat of an ancient dynasty, are made of stacks
of cut stone "logs," each weighing up to 50 tons. Today, issues of ownership and sovereignty hold up plans
to rehabilitate Nan Madol and make it eligible for a UNESCO World Heritage designation.

An earlier origin for the Acheulian - Lake Turkana - Kenya
By Christopher J. Lepre, Hélène Roche, Dennis V. Kent, Sonia Harmand, Rhonda L. Quinn, Jean-Philippe Brugal, Pierre-Jean
Texier, Arnaud Lenoble & Craig S. Feibel
The Acheulian is one of the first defined prehistoric techno-complexes and is characterized by shaped bifacial stone tools. It
probably originated in Africa, spreading to Europe and Asia perhaps as early as ~1 million years (Myr) ago. The origin of
the Acheulian is thought to have closely coincided with major changes in human brain evolution, allowing for further
technological developments. Nonetheless, the emergence of the Acheulian remains unclear because well-dated sites older
than 1.4 Myr ago are scarce. Here we report on the lithic assemblage and geological context for the Kokiselei 4
archaeological site from the Nachukui formation (West Turkana, Kenya) that bears characteristic early Acheulian tools and
pushes the first appearance datum for this stone-age technology back to 1.76 Myr ago. Moreover, co-occurrence of
Oldowan and Acheulian artefacts at the Kokiselei site complex indicates that the two technologies are not mutually
exclusive time-successive components of an evolving cultural lineage, and suggests that the Acheulian was either imported
from another location yet to be identified or originated from Oldowan hominins at this vicinity. In either case, the Acheulian
did not accompany the first human dispersal from Africa despite being available at the time. This may indicate that
multiple groups of hominins distinguished by separate stone-tool-making behaviours and dispersal strategies coexisted in
Africa at 1.76 Myr ago.

COMPETITIONS - New Mining Museum / HULTMANMAGNUSSON - Jøssingfjord - Norway
Young Swedish architects, HULTMANMAGNUSSON, won the competition to design a new mining museum in Jøssingfjord,
Norway, a city famous for its long history of mining and excavation of Titanium powder, used for white color pigment.
Located in the valley of the beautiful fjord, the 2000 m2 museum will exhibit the history, geology and technology of the
area, together with temporary exhibitions. Their proposal was called Varde, meaning a manmade pile of stones common in
this area of Norway. By using natures own material and arranging it a new shape, an important place is marked in the
landscape.
The new building, called Jøssingfjordsenteret, is attached to an existing power station in one end making it a part of the
exhibition. The building stretches out 110 meters towards the ocean, finishing with a panorama view café.

COMPETITIONS - Serlachius Museum Gösta Extension Competition Proposal / XML - Mänttä - Finland
This proposal for the Serlachius Museum Extension in Mänttä, Finland was submitted by XML. The omnipresent landscape
provoked the architects to develop a scheme that became a median between the external world of nature and the internal
world of art.
The required program has been distributed along a continuous route that connects different programmatic clusters such as
galleries, storage, restaurant and office. The circulation between these clusters is bent into a circle allowing for two
experiential conditions: on the inside of the circle a series of enclosed exhibition spaces allows visitors to focus on the
experience of art whereas on the outside of the circle the continuous route that connects the programmatic clusters allows
for alternating these intimate experiences with views on the surrounding nature.

AWARDS - Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute's Ira Rubinoff to Receive the Smithsonian's Highest Honor
- Washington - Washington DC - USA
The Smithsonian Regents will present Ira Rubinoff, Director Emeritus of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, with
the Institution’s highest honor. The Joseph Henry Medal will be presented to Rubinoff July 14 in the Smithsonian building
(the “Castle”).
Renowned for his scientific leadership, Rubinoff directly supervised the construction or modernization of every STRI facility
during his tenure there, while building the staff from a handful to an international group of 35 scientists and 300 staff who
also support approximately 1,000 visiting scientists and students each year. An endowment fund created by Rubinoff
includes more than $17 million to support research and fellowships at STRI, augmenting the $20 million annual budget in
federal and non-federal funds.

FELLOWSHIPS - Henry Luce Foundation Grant to Advance Scholarship on Tibetan Painting Awarded to Rubin
Museum - New York City - New York State - USA
With the support of a three-year, $270,000 grant from the Henry Luce Foundation, Dr. David Jackson—the world’s
foremost scholar of Tibetan Buddhist painting and a consulting curator for the Rubin Museum—will publish a new series of
exhibition catalogues on Tibetan thangka paintings drawn primarily from the museum’s collection. This is the second grant
awarded to the Rubin Museum from the foundation; in 2007 the foundation supported the exhibition Bon: The Magic Word
and its catalogue.
Chief Curator of the Rubin Museum of Art Jan van Alphen expressed the museum’s gratitude to the Henry Luce Foundation
for its commitment to Asian art historical scholarship saying, “The foundation’s continued support of the museum’s efforts
to share ground-breaking research on the art and culture of Tibet will lead to greater appreciation for, and understanding
and preservation of, an endangered cultural heritage.”

PRIZES - Rome Prize -American Academy in Rome - Deadline for applications : 15
November 2011
Each year, the Rome Prize is awarded to thirty emerging artists and scholars in the early or
middle stages of their careers who represent the highest standard of excellence in the arts
and humanities.
Each Rome Prize winner is provided with a stipend, meals, a bedroom with private bath, and
a study or studio. Those with children under 18 live in partially subsidized apartments
nearby. Winners of 6-month and 11-month fellowships receive stipends of $13,000 and
$26,000, respectively.
Owing to the fluctuating dollar/euro exchange rate and the high cost of living in Rome, the stipends offered may not cover
all expenses. This is especially true for prize winners who come to Rome with spouses, companions and/or children.
Fellowships generally begin at the Academy in early September and end in early August. Winners of the 11-month Rome
Prize fellowships may select to depart the Academy after nine months with no reduction to the fellowship stipend.

Aigle de Bonelli : une réintroduction en France n'est pas envisagée
Alors que deux aigles de Bonelli, une espèce de rapace menacée d'extinction, ont récemment pris leur
envol en Espagne, une telle réintroduction n'est pour l'heure pas envisagée en France. Au vu de l'état
génétique de la population déjà présente, elle n'est aujourd'hui pas nécessaire, affirme le coordinateur
du Plan national d'actions pour l'Aigle de Bonelli.
Si en Espagne, deux aiglons de Bonelli ont été récemment réintroduits dans des zones abandonnées
par l'espèce, un tel programme n'est pas nécessaire en France, a affirmé à l'AFP Olivier Scher, le
coordinateur du Plan national d'actions pour le rapace menacé de disparition. En 2011, 31 couples
d'aigles de Bonelli ont été recensés en France, et une récente étude assure que l'état génétique de cette population est
suffisamment satisfaisant pour que la réintroduction de rapaces ne soit pas nécessaire, du moins pour le moment.

baptisée Tara Océans. Celle-ci se poursuivra à Hawaï avant de rejoindre la Californie.
Mission accomplie pour la goélette océanographique Tara. Mardi, celle-ci est arrivée à Papeete sur l'île
de Tahiti, mettant fin à deux mois d'expédition dans les archipels de Polynésie Française, consacrée à
l'étude du corail et des micro-organismes marins. Depuis le mois de juin, la goélette et son équipage
de marins et scientifiques voguaient en effet sur les eaux de l'archipel des Gambier, frontière orientale
de la Polynésie Française, afin d’étudier le massif corallien. L'expédition avait ensuite atteint les Marquises avant de mettre
le cap sur les îles de la Société, sondant au passage la biodiversité marine dans les mers du Sud.

ciertas condiciones.
Las directivas "hábitats" y "aves", así como las relativas a la promoción

independientemente de cualquier estudio de impacto, la prohibición absoluta para turbinas de viento no destinados al
consumo propio en sitios pertenecientes a la red Natura 2000.

Créer des emplois et protéger la biodiversité : les résultats d'une étude de Natureparif réalisée par le Centre
d'Etudes de l'Emploi (CEE) - Ile de France - France
Cette étude a eu comme objet de dénombrer les emplois favorables à la biodiversité (« les bio-emplois ») en Île-de-France
et d’étudier les différents moyens offerts aux politiques publiques pour augmenter ces emplois et soutenir ainsi la
biodiversité. En dépit d’une longue tradition de recherche scientifique en économie de l’emploi et des nombreuses années
de préoccupation pour la protection de la biodiversité, le concept d’« emploi favorable à la biodiversité » n’existait pas en
sciences économiques jusqu’à cette étude. En effet, la littérature internationale en économie s’avère incapable de répondre
aujourd’hui à une question pourtant d’une grande importance, à savoir : « Comment réconcilier, au lieu de les opposer,
politique de l’emploi et politique de protection de la biodiversité ? ». L’avancée principale de l’étude est donc de lancer, en
sciences économiques appliquées à l’appui à la décision, la réflexion sur la mise en place de ces politiques publiques dites «
à double dividende ».

Conservar la biodiversidad de mamíferos es ya una emergencia
Según varios biólogos, es urgente poner en marcha una estrategia para preservar la diversidad de
especies de mamíferos terrestres, de los que una cuarta parte están hoy en día en peligro de extinción.
Si la mayoría de la gente sabe que algunos mamíferos gravemente afectados, como el oso polar, el
panda, o incluso el tigre están ahora protegidos por encontrarse en vías de extinción, muchos menos
son conscientes de la amenaza que pesa sobre muchas otras especies que son cazadas por los
cazadores furtivos con o corren el riesgo de perder su hábitat natural.

Top scientists rally together in fight against invasive species
A flurry of articles in influential scientific journals in recent months has questioned the
urgency to address the growing threat to biodiversity from invasive species. The assertion is
that the concern with invasive species derives from an unreasonable desire to maintain
pristine ecosystems and exclude all alien species. Such criticism is, in fact, unfounded.

Los elefantes de bosque de África central se están quedando sin espacio
La supervivencia de los elefantes de bosque de África central depende de limitar el acceso a los bosques tropicales por
medio de carreteras, asentamientos y otros puntos de entrada a un hábitat que es de otro modo inaccesible, según ha
puesto de manifiesto un estudio a cargo de la Sociedad para la Conservación de la Vida Silvestre y a otros socios.
El estudio confirma que los puntos de entrada a los bosques tropicales que facilitan las carreteras, los ríos y otros lugares
de acceso han tenido como resultado la presencia de más cazadores y menos elefantes. Además, las carreteras y otras
infraestructuras de construcción en los países donde existen los elefantes de bosque todavía existen y carecen de
esfuerzos adecuados contra la caza furtiva, lo cual pone el futuro del menos conocido primo del elefante de sabana en
peligro.

El regreso de los caballos salvajes en peligro de extinción: transporte del
caballo Przewalski de vuelta a Mongola
El caballo Przewalski, o caballo Zungian – el último caballo salvaje en el mundofue aniquilado en la selva al comienzo de los años 60 y 70. Sobrevivió solamente
debido al cuidado de algunas personas, siendo especialmente responsable de su
supervivencia el zoo de Praga. Además del zoo han contribuido la creación y
mantenimiento de un registro de cría de esta especie por todo el mundo desde
1595.
En su mayoría bajo la gestión de los Países Bajos, y de organizaciones alemanas y suizas, la reintroducción del caballo
Przewalski a Mongolia ha estado en marcha desde el comienzo de los años 90. El zoo de Praga se involucró en esta
iniciativa en 1998 y en el 2000 presentando cuatro caballos que se transportaron según una iniciativa internacionalmente
organizada a las regiones Takhin Tal y Hustain Nuruu. El zoo ha participado directamente en el territorio de Mongolia,
principalmente apoyando a los vigilantes en Takhin Tal o más bien en el parque nacional Gobi B.

IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature): Big birds lose out in a crowded world
One of the world’s largest species of bird is on the brink of extinction according to the 2011 IUCN Red List
of Threatened Species™ for birds, just released by BirdLife International, an IUCN Red List partner.
The Great Indian Bustard (Ardeotis nigriceps) has been uplisted to Critically Endangered, the highest level
of threat. Hunting, disturbance, habitat loss and fragmentation have all conspired to reduce this
magnificent species to perhaps as few as 250 individuals.
Standing a metre in height and weighing in at nearly 15 kg, the Great Indian Bustard was once widespread
across the grasslands of India and Pakistan but is now restricted to small and isolated fragments of
remaining habitat.

UC (University of California) Berkeley Study Finds Gray Whales Likely Survived the Ice Ages by Changing Their
Diets
Gray whales survived many cycles of global cooling and warming over the past few million years, likely by exploiting a
more varied diet than they do today, according to a new study by University of California, Berkeley, and Smithsonian
Institution paleontologists.
The researchers, who analyzed California gray whale (Eschrichtius robustus) responses to climate change over the past
120,000 years, also found evidence to support the idea that the population of gray whales along the Pacific Coast before
the arrival of humans was two to four times today’s population, which stands at about 22,000. The whale is considered a
conservation success story because protections instituted as early as the 1930s have allowed populations to rebound from
fewer than 1,000 individuals in the early 20th century, after less than 75 years of systematic whaling.

estudian.
Peter comenzó a tomar fotos para sus libros de niños y con el tiempo se interesó en los
proyectos de multimedia. Trabajar con un químico de atmósfera como el Dr. Shepson, mientras
estuvieron en el Ártico, les brindó la posibilidad de retratar a gente muy especial en un entorno mágico.

Until recently, large apex consumers were ubiquitous across the globe and had been for millions of years. The loss of these
animals may be humankind’s most pervasive influence on nature. Although such losses are widely viewed as an ethical and
aesthetic problem, recent research reveals extensive cascading effects of their disappearance in marine, terrestrial, and
freshwater ecosystems worldwide. This empirical work supports long-standing theory about the role of top-down forcing in
ecosystems but also highlights the unanticipated impacts of trophic cascades on processes as diverse as the dynamics of
disease, wildfire, carbon sequestration, invasive species, and biogeochemical cycles. These findings emphasize the urgent
need for interdisciplinary research to forecast the effects of trophic downgrading on process, function, and resilience in
global ecosystems.

Largest Population of Critically Endangered Gibbon Discovered - Socialist
Republic of Vietnam
Conservation International (CI) has discovered the largest known remaining population of
the critically endangered northern white-cheeked crested gibbon (Nomascus leucogenys)
in Vietnam. Through auditory surveying, a technique which uses the species loud morning
calls for identification, CI has confirmed a substantial population of 130 groups (455
animals), making this the highest priority for conservation action for the species globally.
This newly censused population represents over two-thirds of the total population of the
northern white- cheeked crested gibbon in Vietnam and is the only confirmed viable population of this species left
worldwide. Historically distributed in China, Vietnam and Laos, this highly threatened primate is believed to be functionally
extinct in China and the species situation is largely unknown in Laos, due to a lack of research, although significant
numbers may still persist.

Saving threatened species in Afghanistan: snow leopards in the Wakhan Corridor - Afghanistan
By Anthony Simmsa, Zalmai Moheba, Salahudina, Hussain Alia, Inayat Alia & Timothy Wooda
The Wakhan Corridor in northeast Afghanistan is an area known for relatively abundant wildlife and it
appears to represent Afghanistan’s most important snow leopard landscape. The Wildlife Conservation
Society (WCS) has been working in Wakhan since 2006. Recent camera trap surveys have documented the
presence of snow leopards at 16 different locations in the landscape. These are the first camera trap
records of snow leopards in Afghanistan. Threats to snow leopards in the region include the fur trade,
retaliatory killing by shepherds and the capture of live animals for pets. WCS is developing an integrated
management approach for this species, involving local governance, protection by a cadre of rangers, education,
construction of predator-proof livestock corrals, a livestock insurance program, tourism and research activities. This
management approach is expected to contribute significantly to the conservation of snow leopards and other wildlife
species in the Wakhan.

sequence gap in the animal lineage. The paper, which appears today in Nature1, is the first to
sequence the genome of a non-avian reptile. "This fills out a clade that has been completely ignored
before," says lead author Jessica Alföldi of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard in Cambridge,
Massachusetts.
Amniotes, the first truly terrestrial vertebrates, diverged from other animals some 320 million years
ago to form the mammalian and reptilian lineages. Until now, however, the only representatives of the
reptile branch to be sequenced were birds — the chicken, the turkey and the zebra finch.

Could stem cells rescue an endangered species?
Scientists have made reprogrammed stem cells from an endangered rhinoceros and a monkey.
Fatu, a female northern white rhinoceros who lives in a Kenyan conservation park, is one of
just seven of her kind left in the world. But millions of her stem cells, stored in a freezer in
California, might one day help boost her population's ranks.
The northern white rhino (Ceratotherium simum cottoni) and another animal facing extinction,
the drill monkey (Mandrillus leucophaeus), have become the first endangered animals to have
their cells transformed into stem cells like those found in early embryos. These cells can be
stored and multiplied in culture, and are theoretically capable of making any tissue in the body — including sperm cells
that could be used in assisted captive breeding programmes. The work is published online today in Nature Methods.

Le pangolin, une espèce mal connue et en grand danger
Parmi les espèces en danger, outre les animaux très connus comme le tigre, le requin ou les ours
blancs, certaines sont en train de disparaître dans l’indifférence générale. C’est le cas des pangolins,
une espèce de petit fourmilier à écailles.
Le pangolin est le seul animal insectivore à posséder des écailles. Cette originalité lui coûte cher et cet
animal est très recherché pour sa chair et les supposées vertus médicinales de ses écailles (réduites en
poudre). Bien qu’interdit par la loi internationale, le commerce du pangolin, capturé en Thaïlande, au
Cambodge, en Inde, en Malaisie, au Népal, en Birmanie, au Vietnam et en Indonésie, permet
d’alimenter les marchés chinois et vietnamiens où certains spécimens peuvent être vendus à près de 1.000 dollars.

Des cellules souches synthétiques pour sauver des espèces menacées
Des chercheurs de l’Institut Scripps en Californie, ont découvert une nouvelle solution pour améliorer le
processus de sauvegarde des espèces en voie de disparition. Il s'agit de cellules souches synthétiques,
exploitables pour améliorer la reproduction et la diversité génétique des animaux menacés.
C'est un pas en avant dans la lutte contre la disparition d'espèces menacées. Des scientifiques
américains de l’Institut Scripps sont parvenus à synthétiser en laboratoire des cellules souches,
similaires à celles de l'embryon, dans l'objectif de favoriser la reproduction assistée tout en assurant la
diversité génétique. Cette nouvelle performance génétique a fait l'objet cette semaine d'une publication
dans la revue Nature Methods.

L'étude de fossiles de poissons explique l'apparition des mâchoires chez les
vertébrés

Biodiversidad
Comment les mâchoires, facteur essentiel dans le succès évolutif des vertébrés et la diversité
de leur adaptation, sont-elles apparues subitement chez les poissons il y a 435 millions
d’années ? Une équipe de chercheurs a réussi à expliquer ce phénomène grâce à une étude
poussée de l’anatomie interne de fossiles de galéaspides, poissons sans mâchoires.
L’apparition des mâchoires chez les vertébrés aurait été rendue possible grâce à une
réorganisation du cerveau et des organes du sens bien avant l’origine des mâchoires. Cette
étude menée par des chercheurs de l’Université de Bristol, de l’Académie chinoise des Sciences, du CNRS, du Muséum
national d’Histoire naturelle, de l’Institut suisse Paul Scherrer et l’Université ETH de Zurich a été publiée le 18 août dernier
dans Nature.

A new tool to help predict species invasiveness
Looking at the individual species, only 23 per cent conformed to the abundance assumption theory. The
ten plant species considered to be invasive did not consistently have higher relative abundances than the
non-invasive species.
The ability to estimate the likely success of a species in a new area from abundance in its native
environment may be a useful tool that is currently missing in biosecurity screening standards. The study
recommends that it is added as an extra criterion in the official assessment of the potential invasiveness of
a plant species. The reasons behind the success of current invasive species, which are indeed more
abundant in their introduced range, requires a dedicated on-going research effort.

The Financial Instrument for the Environment (LIFE) preventing species extinction:
Safeguarding endangered flora and fauna through ex-situ conservation
© European Union, 2011
ISBN 978-92-79-20026-7
Most LIFE Nature projects focus on conservation action 'in-situ', i.e. within the natural habitat of a
particular threatened species. This may not be enough to help the most vulnerable species, however, in
which case 'ex-situ' conservation measures are required to address the threat of extinction. The LIFE
programme has a distinguished track record of funding crucial ex-situ interventions targeting a wide range
of vulnerable species, ranging from flagship species such as the brown bear and golden eagle, to lesser-known but equally
important fish, invertebrates, reptiles, amphibians and plants. LIFE-funded actions to support habitats ex-situ have
contributed to enhancing biodiversity, supporting the EU's policy goals. The Commission is at present evaluating the
contribution that ex-situ conservation has to make to the conservation of European species. This LIFE Focus publication
highlights more than 80 LIFE Nature projects that feature ex-situ conservation actions, with the goal not only of
highlighting innovative ideas and good practice, but also of pointing out some of the problems that previous LIFE projects
have faced so that they might be avoided by current and future projects working in the challenging field of ex-situ
conservation.

Christchurch Cathedral may be knocked down - Christchurch - New Zealand
Earthquake-damaged Christ Church Cathedral could be demolished and rebuilt further west, senior
clergy say. Bishop Victoria Matthews and Dean Peter Beck say the cathedral needs to be in the centre of
the city. If quake-damaged land was abandoned in the eastern suburbs and the focal point of the city
shifted west, the cathedral would be rebuilt in the new centre, Matthews said.
"If the whole city moves west, we need to be in the centre of the city. We want to be in the centre of the
city as an icon," she said.
"What is important is we keep asking the big questions and we don't get tied up in details. The big
question is if the cathedral is the heart and soul of the city, where do we place the cathedral?
"In the worst sense, it is a moveable feast. I think there will be a huge amount riding on the land report, when we find out
what parts of the city will be rebuilt.
"The centre of the city can't be in isolation. It is in relationship to the rest of the city. The land report will be of key
importance."

Bank of China Tower / I.M. Pei - 1985-1990 - Hong-Kong - China
When commissioned to design the Bank of China Tower on an intricate inland site, I.M. Pei was requested to create an
unavoidably tall unique headquarters in a typhoon-prone region that would represent the aspirations of the Chinese people
yet also symbolize good will toward the British Colony. The solution assimilates architecture and engineering
simultaneously, involving an asymmetrical tower that informs both skyline and street. The Bank of China Tower stands 70
stories tall, reaching a height of 1,209 feet. At the time of its opening in May 1990, it was the tallest building in Asia and
still remains one of the tallest in Hong Kong.

Architecture City Guide: Paris - Paris - France
This week, with the help of our readers, our Architecture City Guide is headed to Paris. For centuries Paris has been the
laboratory where innovative architects and artists have come to test their ideas. This has created a city that has bit of
everything. Where the architecture of some cities seems to undergo phases of punctuated equilibrium, Paris’s architectural
fossil record gives an impression of gradualism; all the missing links are there. This makes it easy to trace the origins of
the most contemporary ideas throughout history. Nothing seems to come out of nowhere. If you look around you kind find
the design’s inspiration running through the city’s Roman, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Rocco, Neo-Classical,
Empire, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Modern, Post-Modern, and Contemporary Architecture. Seen in another context, many of
Paris’s buildings might seem out of place, but the bones of this city support the newest iterations on the oldest and most
profound questions. The 24 contemporary designs that comprise our list probably should not be viewed outside of this
context, even though that is the stated goal of some of the designs.

Al Hajjara is one such village that warrants a closer look. Built on the precipice of a mountain, the architecture clings to the

Post Office in Ben Franklin's House in Philadelphia's Historic Old City May Close - Philadelphia - Pennsylvania USA
A post office in a building that Benjamin Franklin once owned is on the Postal Service's list of branches that could close.
The post office in Philadelphia's historic Old City neighborhood is the only one in the country that doesn't fly a U.S. flag.
That's because there wasn't one in 1775, when Franklin founded what has evolved into today's Postal Service.
There's also a postal museum upstairs from the so-called B. Free Franklin Post Office, located in a house once owned by
Franklin. It opened as a U.S. post office in 1975, the 200th anniversary of Franklin's appointment by the Continental

AD Classics: Mazar-e-Quaid (National Mausoleum) / Yahya Merchant - 1970 - Karachi - Pakistan
Otherwise known as the National Mausoleum, the Mazar-e-Quaid is the tomb of the founder of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali
Jinnah. Sited in the center of Karachi, Pakistan on a natural plateau, this marble structure was designed by the Indian
architect Yahya Merchant and was completed in 1970.
The mausoleum serves as the final resting place for Jinnah as well as Liaqat Ali Khan, (the first Prime Minister of Pakistan),
Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah (Jinnah’s sister), Abdur Rab Nishtar and Nurul Amin. Upon entrance through one of the four
pointed arches entering into the mausoleum, visitors enter into a grand octagonal space with a ceremonial sarcophagus in
its center (the actual tomb, expectedly, is in a subterranean chamber directly beneath the ceremonial sarcophagus). In
addition to its functional purpose as a mausoleum, Mazar-e-Quaid also serves as host to a variety of governmental and
military ceremonies.

AD Classics: Everson Museum - I.M. Pei - 1968 - Syracuse - New York - USA
With a collection focused largely on American art and ceramics, the Everson Museum exists
as a structure that is more than just a vault for art. Designed in 1968 by I.M. Pei, the
structure sought to simultaneously challenge the traditional museum typology through its
innovative form while also existing as an object of modern art in its own right. Pei conceived
the Everson as an open structure with access to its interior from all of its exposed sides.
The building is primarily comprised of four opaque concrete volumes that surround an open
atrium that visitors move through to access the galleries. A library/lounge and an
auditorium exist as separate volumes that are accessed through the atrium. Each volume contains galleries of differing size
and height that when viewed from outside gives added hierarchy to the overall assemblage of forms that makeup the
museum. A cantilevered second story adds further differentiation to the building from the surrounding landscape.

AD Classics: Alden B. Dow Home and Studio - Alden Dow - 1937 - 1940 - Midland Michigan - USA
The Alden B. Dow Home and Studio, design by architect Alden Dow himself, masterfully
incorporates work and domestic life in an interwoven fabric with the natural world. Using
patented “Unit Blocks” the structure is given a sense of organicism and scale. A winding
circulation serves to both separate programs within the home and add organic interest to the
plan.
Alden Dow’s style can be said to resemble that of Frank Lloyd Wright, and rightfully so as Dow
served as apprentice to Wright in the summer of 1933. Dow’s concept of creating a home and studio was influenced
greatly by Wright. The idea was also implemented at Taliesin East, Wright’s home, studio and educational facility, where
Dow’s apprenticeship took place.

Twenty-seven years in the making, the $45 million renovation of a 150-year-old Taiwanese homestead is finally nearing
completion. The Lin Family Mansion — a complex of five buildings on 7.4 acres (3 hectares) — is one of Taiwan's most
important historical sites, a rare example of the ornate architectural style favored by nobles from southern China in the

Rietveld died a year after the project began. Rietveld’s colleague on the project,

AD Classics: Haas Haus by Hans Hollein - 1987 - 1990 - Vienna - Austria
The modern Hass Haus, designed by Hans Hollein, was controversial from its initiation in 1987.
The intrusion of a contemporary glass and stone building was met with a resistance, much to
do with its location in the shadow of Vienna’s oldest and greatest architectural masterpieces –
St. Stephen’s Cathedral. If anything, the building’s locale in St. Stephens Square is most
complementary to the antique cathedral; the contours of the church are brilliantly mirrored on
the Hass Haus’ façade and display that modern architecture can be momentous, as well as
unobtrusive to its historical context.

Canadian Architectural Archives Release Toronto City Hall Design Proposals
The first modern building in Toronto, City Hall built in 1965 and designed by Viljo Revell, was just
one of 500 proposals that enter the international design competition between 1957 and 1958.
Ideas to expand the Old City Hall began in 1925, followed by an array of proposals for a new
place to house the municipal government and courts. Mark Osbaldeston’s Unbuilt Toronto: A
History of the City that Might Have Been covers in detail the design proposals for Toronto, and in
particular, those proposals not selected for the new city hall. In 1955, before an international
design competition was announced, the Toronto city council allowed citizens to vote on proposals
by the firms Marani & Morris, Mathers & Haldenby, and Shore & Moffat. The general attitude toward the proposal was that
it was drab and boxy and the public refused to support it. In response to this criticism, the city opened up the design of the
new city hall in 1957. By April of 1958, 500 entries were submitted, filling CNE’s Horticulture Building with numerous
models. The number was widdled down to eight finalists and finally Revell’s design was selected to be built. Viljo Revell’s
design was the first iconic modern building to be built in Toronto, preceding Mies Van der Rohe’s TD Centre by a few years.

Museum of Memory and Tolerance / Arditti + RDT Architects - 2010 - Mexico D.F.
- Mexico
The Museum is constructed using a mixture of reinforced concrete and steel in a seven
level structure (three of permanent exhibit + four complimentary). It is set on a
continuous colonnade of the Plaza Juarez complex, designed by Legorreta + Legorreta
Architects on the site of the former “Hotel Alameda” (which fell during the 1985
earthquake).

AD Classics: Villa La Roche - Le Corbusier - 1923-1925 - Paris - France
Designed 1923-1925 as a residence for Swiss banker Raoul La Roche, Villa Roche is the
quintessence of Le Corbusier’s modern approach to housing. The Villa acted as an exhibition
space for Mr. Roche’s collection of avant-garde artwork, and is a pure assemblage of spatial
volumes that interlocks the dual programs of domicile and gallery.
The promenade through Villa Roche plays a significant role in linking these two programs into
one; its hierarchy is a theme inspired by Corbusier‘s visit to the Acropolis. The Villa was
imagined as a “spatial experience” and consists of a specifically deliberate path which guides
the inhabitant and unveils the artwork as an itinerary through history.

AD Classics: The Pagoda - Miguel Fisac - 1965-1970 - Madrid - Spain
Laboratorios Jorba is commonly referred to as the Pagoda because its rotating floors create a shape
reminiscent of tiered eaves found in traditional pagodas. Built by Spanish architect Miguel Fisac, the
tower stood on the outskirts of Madrid between 1968 and 1999. The Pagoda was a strong example of
Fisac’s playfulness and skill as an architect, and a master of concrete.
Miguel Fisac is recognized as the leader of modern architecture in Spain in the second half of the 20th
century. His work spans six decades, and includes the construction of over 300 works in that time.
Fisac is also credited with projects in many other design fields such as industrial design, furniture
design, urban planning, and painting, but is most well known for his innovative buildings and his fascination with concrete.

Restoring a Classic: Richard Meier's Douglas House - 1973 - Harbor Springs Michigan - USA
Referred to as one of Meier’s best works, the Douglas House hovers over the shores of Lake
Michigan placed upon a steep slope over the water almost as if it is floating amongst the trees.
The Douglas House was designed for clients Jim and Jean Douglas and was completed in 1973
after a three year construction period (1971-1973). Meier furnished the home with furniture
designed by Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and himself, and it needed no ornamentation
other than the nature it was designed around.
As is typical of Meier buildings, the house is completely white made with reinforced concrete and glass except for two steel
pipes that extend from the chimney up to the roof, framing views at the entry level. Taking the natural surroundings into
consideration during the construction, the house was positioned to remove as few trees as possible.

AD Classics: De La Warr Pavilion - Erich Mendelsohn and Serge Chermayeff - 1935 Sussex - England
The persistence of design in the midst of even the severest persecution is one of the most
remarkable aspects of classic mid-century European Architecture. Even under forceful Nazi
discrimination during their rise to power between world wars, Erich Mendelsohn was able to
design the De La Warr Pavilion with Serge Chermayeff during his exodus to Britain before
both ultimately fled to the United States.

AD Classics: Florey Building - James Stirling - 1971 - Oxford - United Kingdom
The Queen’s College Florey building is the third and last building of “The Red Trilogy” (the
Leicester Engineering Faculty building and the Cambridge History Faculty building being the
first two) designed by James Stirling, solidifying him as an irreplaceable facet in modern
Architecture.
The Florey building was named after provost and 1945 Nobel Laureate Lord Howard Florey, who
sat on the committee in charge of choosing an architect for the project. Although Stirling was
not the most popular choice for lead architect on the project, Florey was an advocate of his,
and Stirling was ultimately agreed upon because of the promise and potential held in his reputation at that time to deliver
an iconic, modern building to boost the college’s reputation and enrollment.

AD Classics: St. Mark's Church - Sigurd Lewerentz - 1956-1960 - Bjorkhagen Stockholm - Sweden
After over a decade of absence from architecture, Sigurd Lewerentz reappeared with the
creation of St. Mark’s Church in Björkhagen, Stockholm. His winning design for the church
brought him back to the art of building, and his apt control of materiality brought the St.
Mark’s Church international attention.
Lewerentz received the commission for St. Mark’s Church through a competition. He was
invited, along with four other architects, to propose ideas for the new church. Lewerentz
submitted multiple ideas and was ultimately chosen as the designer for the new church in 1956.

AD Classics: Riola Parish Church - Alvar Aalto - 1978 - Grizzana - Italy Designed by Finnish architect, Alvar Aalto, Riola Parrish Church is a stunning concrete form
which mimics and modulates with the contours of its Italian landscape. The magnificent
baptistery, completed in 1978, is located eight kilometers south of Bologna in the small town
of Riola. Aalto’s evocative modernist architecture captures the spirit of this mountain
setting; it is a spiritual structure which, inside and out, unassumingly expresses sanctity of

AD Classics: Prairie Chicken House / Herb Greene - 1960-1961 - NORMAN - OKLAHOMA - USA
The Greene Residence, dubbed the “Prairie Chicken House” by Life Magazine, was built on the prairies of Norman,
Oklahoma in 1961 and quickly became a symbol of organic modernism. Architect Herb Greene took the organic movement
of Frank Lloyd Wright and Bruce Goff to a new freestyle level in the design of his personal home. Built for himself and his
family, the house conveys a sense of place and purpose.

Amsterdam Orphanage / Aldo van Eyck - 1955-1960 - Amsterdam - The Netherlands
Dutch Architect Aldo van Eyck built the Amsterdam Orphanage in 1960. His design focused on a balance of forces to create
both a home and small city on the outskirts of Amsterdam.As a member of CIAM and then a founding member of Team 10,
van Eyck held strong opinions on post-war architecture. The Amsterdam Orphanage was van Eyck’s opportunity to put his
opinions in practice through his first large scale built project. Van Eyck criticized early post-war architecture as lacking a
human element. In the Amsterdam Orphanage he sought to design a modern building with a new urban vision from those
of his CIAM predecessors

AD Classics: Royal Hotel - Arkady Mordvinov - 1949-1953 - Moscow - The Russian
Federation
Originally completed in 1953 as the Hotel Ukraina, the Royal Hotel was designed by Arkady
Mordvinov and Vyacheslav Oltarzhevsky and stands as one of the “Seven Sisters” of Moscow
(Mordvinov was acting as the Chairman of the Committee of Construction and Architecture
at the time). This five-star hotel complex was the tallest hotel in the world at its completion
at 34 stories (650ft) and is sited on the banks of the Moskva River. This unique site required
considerable structural innovation during early construction, which will be discussed later in
the feature.
The Seven Sisters are skyscrapers built in the Stalin-era — the neoclassical Royal Hotel is one of the seven, accompanied
by the Kotelnicheskaya Embankment Apartments, the Kudrinskaya Square Building, the Hotel Leningradskaya, the Ministry
of Foreign Affairs, the main building of the Moscow State University, and the Red Gates Administrative Building. A massive
complex by any standards at almost one million square feet of floor area, the hotel boasts an array of lodging and
entertainment offerings including over five hundred hotel rooms, thirty-eight extended stay apartments, five restaurants, a
400-person conference center, a 1000-person banquet hall, spa, and a fleet of river yachts.

Twelve houses restored in Japan and Italy
By Olimpia Niglio and Taisuke Kuroda
ISBN: 978-88-548-4148-2
The restoration of architecture in a nation is a project strictly connected to its culture, its society, as well
as to the weather conditions and to its political and economic background. The contemporary culture, in
particular, has developed an awareness of the fact that the main purpose of the conservation of
monuments and landscape is not only protecting the matter of social well but also its intrinsic values,
strongly connected to the sense of belonging to the place. The necessity of searching these values comes
from the need of knowledge of the different cultural references that permit to man to direct his choices as concerns
conservation and safeguard compared to popular areas of interest apparently of less importance but vivid from the cultural
and social point of view.
And this is the birth of the relationship between values and needs connected to the demand of transformation of urban and
housing contexts. On these assumptions the book Twelve houses restored in Italy and Japan focuses on restoration
projects of historical urban contexts, where the theme of living produced changes, influenced different intervention
methods and functional choices without changing the sign of history. The book wants to introduce restoration projects
comparing different cultural realities and architectonical methods that characterized the present situation in Italy and
Japan. The experiences described in the book notice an interesting sharing among the different methods of restoration.

Comment la sécheresse affecte-t-elle la forêt méditerranéenne ? C’est pour répondre à cette
question que les chercheurs du projet Drought ont réalisé une étude originale consistant à
suivre en continu un écosystème de 4 étages de végétation (pins d’Alep, chênes verts,
filaires à grandes feuilles et chênes kermès).
Le Cemagref, qui assure dans ce projet le suivi phénologique des arbres, leur
développement saisonnier, peut se prévaloir de résultats inédits. L’architecture de l’arbre, sa
forme typique qui découle de règles strictes de croissance, n’est pas immuable comme on le pensait jusqu’à présent. Elle
est modifiée de façon persistante par le réchauffement climatique.

Senegal farmers fight desertification with trees - Senegal
Dame Diop looks at the green leaves of trees growing on the sandy Sahelian soil of his
Senegal village, Khatre Sy, and talks with modesty about the community’s effort to restore
fertility to their degraded soil.
The people of Khatre Sy, about 130km north of Senegal’s capital, Dakar, decided to pool their
farmlands together and zone off sections to allow trees – mainly varieties of the African
acacia – to regenerate. They used some of the regeneration sites as farmlands where they
planted crops – groundnuts, millet and sorghum.

Middle East's Push Toward Renewable Energy Spurred by Rising Oil Prices
By LISA FRIEDMAN of ClimateWire
The New York Times. Published: June 21, 2011
There's a revolution sweeping the Middle East that has nothing to do with street uprisings or Twitter protests. It's a clean
energy upheaval with international implications that could transform the Arab world from North Africa to the Persian Gulf.
Solar plants are cropping up in Jordan and Morocco. Wind farms are being built in Egypt and Tunisia. Eight Arab nations
and the Palestinian territories have a renewable energy target, and at least five more are taking serious steps to promote
the domestic use of clean energy. Some of the most surprising movement is happening in oil-rich countries like Saudi
Arabia and Qatar.

Requerimientos humanitarios. Documento para la sequía del cuerno de África 2011
El cuerno de África está hoy experimentando la crisis alimenticia más dura del mundo. Más de 12 millones
de personas en Yibuti, Etiopía, Kenia y Somalia están siendo gravemente afectados y necesitan de forma
urgente ayuda humanitaria, y no hay posibilidad de que la situación mejore hasta el 2012. Esta cifra de
afectados ha aumentado un 38% comparada con la cifra recogida en marzo de 2011. La situación
continuará deteriorándose con una hambruna oficialmente reconocida por la ONU el 20 de julio en la parte
baja del Shabelle y la región de Bakool del sur de Somalia [1]. Otras ocho regiones del sur de Somalia se
encuentran en peligro de sufrir hambruna en los uno o dos meses venideros a menos que aumente la
ayuda de reparto de forma equivalente a las necesidades. Mientras que la declaración de la hambruna sólo afecta a
Somalia, grandes partes de Etiopía, Kenia y Yibuti están también sufriendo una grave inseguridad en cuanto a alimentos se
refiere, como resultado de la sequía y de los altos precios de los alimentos, y están viendo cómo grandes flujos de
refugiados llegan huyendo de la hambruna en Somalia.

A lo largo de la cordillera de los Andes en Colombia, Ecuador, Perú y Venezuela, ubicado entre la cota máxima de árboles y

El clima en el páramo de los Andes del Norte es húmedo y frío. Las temperaturas pueden alcanzar valores por debajo del
punto de congelación en la noche, y aumentar rápidamente a valores cercanos a los 15°C durante el día. Pero esto no me
preocupa. Al contrario, estar en este ecosistema me fascina. Por eso regreso a él, cada que puedo, con el objetivo de

CLAMER (Climate Change & European Marine Ecosystem Research): Prodigal Plankton Species Makes First
Known Migration from Pacific to Atlantic via Pole
Some 800,000 years ago - about the time early human tribes were learning to make fire - a
tiny species of plankton called Neodenticula seminae went extinct in the North Atlantic.
Today, that microscopic plant has become an Atlantic resident again, having drifted from
the Pacific through the Arctic Ocean thanks to dramatically reduced polar ice, scientists
report.
The melting Arctic has opened a Northwest Passage across the Pole for the tiny algae. And
while it's a food source, it isn't being welcomed back by experts, who say any changes at the
base of the marine food web could, like an earthquake, shake or even topple the pillars of
existing Atlantic ocean life.

Long-term effects of ocean warming on the prokaryotic community: evidence from the vibrios
The long-term effects of ocean warming on prokaryotic communities are unknown because of lack of historical data. We
overcame this gap by applying a retrospective molecular analysis to the bacterial community on formalin-fixed samples
from the historical Continuous Plankton Recorder archive, which is one of the longest and most geographically extensive
collections of marine biological samples in the world. We showed that during the last half century, ubiquitous marine
bacteria of the Vibrio genus, including Vibrio cholerae, increased in dominance within the plankton-associated bacterial

Naciones Unidas: una cooperación mejorada es vital para proteger los bosques del
clima extremo
Varias agencias de Naciones Unidas y sus socios están haciendo un llamamiento para una
mayor cooperación a la hora de abordar la amenaza que supone para los bosques del mundo
los acontecimientos relacionados con climas extremos y los desastres naturales.
Los acontecimientos relacionados con un clima extremo que tienen un gran impacto en la
salud de los bosques incluyen los ciclones, las inundaciones, los corrimientos de tierra, los
tornados, los terremotos y las erupciones volcánicos – las llamadas “perturbaciones
abióticas” , según un informe publicado por la Organización de las Naciones Unidas para la Alimentación y la Agricultura
(FAO), que se encuentra entre los 14 organismos que conforman la Asociación de Colaboración en materia de Bosques.

Economy, public seen key to climate deal - Bonn - Germany
Many nations at U.N. talks in Bonn from June 6-17 seem resigned to a long haul -- more like arms reduction talks or U.N.
trade negotiations -- after failure to agree a binding U.N. climate deal by an end-2009 deadline at a summit in Copenhagen.
"Public awareness is really going to be the key," to spur a deal to avert heatwaves, droughts, floods and rising seas, said
Rajendra Pachauri, head of the U.N. panel of climate scientists.
He told the Reuters Global Energy and Climate Summit that he believed many people, including in the United States, were
"gradually getting more concerned about the realities of climate change," partly because of extreme weather.

En un mundo que cada vez se calienta más, las criaturas animales huyen a las colinas
Una ola de calor está barriendo el planeta, los animales y las plantas están huyendo a climas más fríos. O esto es lo que
asumen los científicos. Es difícil achacar la migración de una especie directamente al cambio climático, particularmente con
las actividades humanas contribuyendo a la destrucción de los ecosistemas cada año. Pero los investigadores han
recopilado más evidencia para esta causa-efecto recogiendo información de 54 artículos científicos que de forma colectiva
reflejan los rangos de hábitat de más de 2,000 especies en las últimas cuatro décadas. Como media, el equipo ha
encontrado que las criaturas se mueven hacia las montañas y se alejan del Ecuador a una velocidad que va al mismo ritmo
que la del cambio climático y a un ritmo que es más veloz que el que se predijo en un primer momento.

UNHCR chief calls for new tools to address climate-related displacement - Oslo - Kingdom of Norway
The world needs to urgently redefine its response to natural disasters and displacement, said UN High Commissioner for
Refugees António Guterres today as he urged countries to adopt new measures to cope with climate-induced displacement
within and across borders.
Guterres made his appeal in Oslo at the Nansen Conference on Climate Change and Displacement in the 21st Century,
declaring the issue "the defining challenge of our times" and noting that "the international community has hitherto lacked
the political will to establish effective mechanisms to reduce the pace of climate change."

El Parlamento vota contra una nueva Resolución “clima”
Una mayoría de eurodiputados, bajo el impulso del ponente Bas Eickhout (Verts/ALE, NL) rechazó, el martes, un proyecto
de Resolución relativo a la política climática de la UE. Se había adoptado por un margen ajustado una enmienda en favor
de una reducción, bajo condiciones, del 30% de las emisiones de gas de efecto invernadero, preferiblemente al objetivo
unilateral de una reducción del 30% recomendada por el Parlamento.
En la votación final, la resolución modificada obtuvo 258 votos a favor, 347 votos en contra y 63 abstenciones.
Por lo tanto, la posición más reciente adoptada por el Parlamento por lo que se refiere a la política climática figura en la
Resolución del mes de noviembre de 2010, que recomienda un objetivo de reducción incondicional del 30% de las
emisiones de gas de efecto invernadero de aquí al 2020 (con relación a los niveles de 1990).

Stability of the West Antarctic ice sheet in a warming world
Abstract by Ian Joughin & Richard B. Alley
Ice sheets are expected to shrink in size as the world warms, which in turn will raise sea level. The West Antarctic ice sheet
is of particular concern, because it was probably much smaller at times during the past million years when temperatures
were comparable to levels that might be reached or exceeded within the next few centuries. Much of the grounded ice in
West Antarctica lies on a bed that deepens inland and extends well below sea level. Oceanic and atmospheric warming
threaten to reduce or eliminate the floating ice shelves that buttress the ice sheet at present. Loss of the ice shelves would
accelerate the flow of non-floating ice near the coast. Because of the slope of the sea bed, the consequent thinning could
ultimately float much of the ice sheet's interior. In this scenario, global sea level would rise by more than three metres, at
an unknown rate. Simplified analyses suggest that much of the ice sheet will survive beyond this century. We do not know
how likely or inevitable eventual collapse of the West Antarctic ice sheet is at this stage, but the possibility cannot be
discarded. For confident projections of the fate of the ice sheet and the rate of any collapse, further work including the
development of well-validated physical models will be required.

A raíz de las dislocaciones de las plataformas antárticas, los glaciares aguas arriba se reducen rápidamente y
para mucho tiempo
Los desmantelamientos de plataformas de la península antártica observados desde hace algunas décadas conducen a una
aceleración de la escorrentía hacia el océano de los glaciares situados aguas arriba, aceleración que repercute sobre la
pérdida de masa del manto glaciar y sobre el aumento del nivel marino. Un reciente estudio, realizado por tres
investigadores de la NASA (1), el LEGOS (2) y el NSIDC (3) y refiriéndose a la región del norte de la península, pone de
manifiesto que esta aceleración se acompaña de una disminución importante y prolongada de los glaciares. Los
investigadores pudieron estimar con precisión esta disminución en el tiempo de los distintos glaciares así como la subida
del nivel de los mares a la que esta región contribuyó. Este estudio se publica en el Journal of Glaciology.

El aumento de la temperatura del Mar Mediterráneo disminuye la resistencia de los
corales y moluscos a su acidificación
Algunos organismos calcificadores (mejillones, conchas y corales) protegen su cáscara o su
esqueleto de la acción corrosiva del agua de mar. Esto les confiere una extraordinaria
capacidad para resistir a la acidificación creciente del agua de mar, vinculada a las emisiones
de gas carbónico (CO2) en la atmósfera. A pesar de todo, ésta se reduce cuando expone a
estos organismos a una elevada temperatura (superior a 28,5°C) durante un largo período. Es
lo que revela un estudio internacional (1) codirigido por Jean-Pierre Gattuso del Laboratorio de
oceanografía de Villefranche (CNRS/UPMC) y publicado en el estudio Natural Climate Change. Resultados que hacen pensar
que el recalentamiento previsto del Mar Mediterráneo, unido a la acidificación de sus aguas, va a aumentar la frecuencia de
los episodios de mortalidad de estos organismos.

Rapid sea-level rise and reef back-stepping at the close of the last interglacial highstand
By Paul Blanchon, Anton Eisenhauer, Jan Fietzke & Volker Liebetrau
Widespread evidence of a +4–6-m sea-level highstand during the last interglacial period (Marine Isotope Stage 5e) has led
to warnings that modern ice sheets will deteriorate owing to global warming and initiate a rise of similar magnitude by ad
2100 (ref. 1). The rate of this projected rise is based on ice-sheet melting simulations and downplays discoveries of more
rapid ice loss. Knowing the rate at which sea level reached its highstand during the last interglacial period is fundamental
in assessing if such rapid ice-loss processes could lead to future catastrophic sea-level rise. The best direct record of sea
level during this highstand comes from well-dated fossil reefs in stable areas…

Contribution of Pacific wind stress to multi-decadal variations in upper-ocean heat content and sea level in the
tropical south Indian Ocean
By Franziska U. Schwarzkopf & Claus W. Böning
Leibniz-Institut für Meereswissenschaften an der Universität Kiel (IFM-GEOMAR), Kiel, Germany
Reconstructions of the spatial pattern of recent multi-decadal sea level trends in the Indian Ocean (IO) indicate a zonallyextended band in the southern tropics where sea level has substantially fallen between the 1960s and 1990s; the decline is
consistent with the observed subsurface cooling associated with a shoaling thermocline in this region. Here the origin and
spatio-temporal characteristics of these trends are elucidated by a sequence of ocean model simulations. Whereas
interannual variability in the southwestern tropical IO appears mainly governed by IO atmospheric forcing, longer term
changes in the south tropical IO involve a strong contribution from the western Pacific via wave transmission of
thermocline anomalies through the Indonesian Archipelago, and their subsequent westward propagation by baroclinic
Rossby waves. The late 20th-century IO subsurface cooling trend reversed in the 1990s, reflecting the major regime shift
in the tropical Pacific easterlies associated with the Pacific Decadal Oscillation.

Do blue-ice moraines in the Heritage Range show the West Antarctic ice sheet survived the last interglacial?
By Christopher J. Fogwilla, Andrew S. Heinb, Michael J. Bentleyc & David E. Sugdenb
We present a hypothesis that best explains cosmogenic isotope data on blue-ice moraines in the Heritage Range, West
Antarctica. The age of the moraines implies that they, and the related ice-sheet surface with which they are associated,
have persisted on the flanks of nunataks throughout at least the last interglacial/glacial cycle. The implication is that
although the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) may have fluctuated in thickness during glacial cycles, the central dome has
remained intact for at least 200 kyr and possibly even for 400 kyr. Such a finding, if substantiated, would contribute to our
understanding of the sensitivity of the WAIS to climate change. Further it would be a powerful geomorphic constraint on
models of the past behaviour of the ice sheet during glacial cycles and thus those predicting the future of the ice sheet in a
warming world.

Les petites mais fréquentes éruptions volcaniques contribuent à refroidir le climat
Malgré l'absence d'éruptions volcaniques majeures, les fréquentes mais faibles éruptions volcaniques

quantité d'aérosols suffisante pour réduire temporairement mais de manière significative le
réchauffement climatique dû aux émissions de gaz à effet de serre. C'est ce que révèlent deux études
franco-américaines récentes, auxquelles des chercheurs du Laboratoire atmosphères, milieux,

Sulfur stalls surface temperature rise: Findings explain decade without warming
By Nadia Drake
A new study demonstrates why global surface temperatures defied a decades-long trend and didn’t continue to rise
between 1998 and 2008: Pollution-spewing, coal-burning power plants in Asia, while emitting warming greenhouse gases,
simultaneously sent cooling sulfur particles into the atmosphere.
During that decade — sometimes cited as evidence to deny global warming — these Asian emissions mostly balanced one
another and dampened the effects of natural cooling cycles associated with the sun and ocean temperatures.

El cambio climático hará disminuir el agua disponible para la agricultura
Un nuevo estudio de la FAO resume los conocimientos científicos existentes
El cambio climático tendrá graves consecuencias en la disponibilidad de agua para producir alimentos y en la productividad
de los cultivos durante las próximas décadas, según advierte un nuevo informe de la FAO.
Cambio climático, agua y seguridad alimentaria es un estudio completo de los conocimientos científicos existentes sobre
las consecuencias previsibles del cambio climático sobre el uso del agua en la agricultura.
Entre ellas se incluyen la disminución de la escorrentía de los ríos y de la alimentación de los acuíferos en el Mediterráneo
y las zonas semiáridas en América, Australia y África meridional, regiones que ya sufren de estrés hídrico. En Asia se verán
también afectadas amplias zonas que dependen del deshielo y de los glaciares de montaña, mientras que las áreas
densamente pobladas de los deltas fluviales están amenazadas al combinarse un menor flujo de agua, aumento de la
salinidad y la subida del nivel del mar.

The UN is committed to the continued support of the people affected by the floods in Pakistan and urges the international
community to continue supporting early recovery and follow through on the response.

Impacto del cambio climático sobre el Patrimonio
In collaboration with national response efforts the UN will continue to support communities recovering from the destruction
caused by the floods, and will strive to bolster resilience to the risks of future flooding.
The Pakistan Flood Relief and Early Recovery Response Plan is currently funded at 69.6 % (or US$1.3 billion) of the total
requirements of US$1.9 billion. More than US$600 million is still needed to support early recovery activities and achieve
the objectives set out in the floods response plan. The UN has released a report on the floods response titled Pakistan
Floods One Year On available at www.pakresponse.info.

Special Report on Renewable Energy Sources and Climate Change Mitigation (SRREN)
The Special Report on Renewable Energy Sources and Climate Change Mitigation (SRREN), agreed and released by the
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on May 9th in Abu Dhabi, assesses existing literature on the future
potential of renewable energy for the mitigation of climate change. It covers the six most important renewable energy
technologies, as well as their integration into present and future energy systems. It also takes into consideration the
environmental and social consequences associated with these technologies, the cost and strategies to overcome technical
as well as non-technical obstacles to their application and diffusion.

Study Reveals Future "Hotspots" of Risk for Hundreds of Millions Whose Food Problems are on a
Collision Course with Climate Change
By Polly Ericksen, Philip Thornton, An Notenbaert, Laura Cramer, Peter Jones, Mario Herrero.
A new study has matched future climate change “hotspots” with regions already suffering chronic food
problems to identify highly-vulnerable populations, chiefly in Africa and South Asia, but potentially in China
and Latin America as well, where in fewer than 40 years, the prospect of shorter, hotter or drier growing
seasons could imperil hundreds of millions of already-impoverished people.
The report, "Mapping Hotspots of Climate Change and Food Insecurity in the Global Tropics" (PDF) was
produced by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS). The work was
undertaken by a team of scientists responding to an urgent need to focus climate change adaptation efforts on people and
places where the potential for harsher growing conditions poses the gravest threat to food production and food security.

California Chinatown catalogada como Lugar Histórico en Peligro de Extinción. HANFORD - CALIFORNIA (USA)
When Chinese immigrants arrived in 1877 to the newly established San Joaquin Valley town of Hanford, Calif., they found
themselves in an unfamiliar place with no reminders of home, facing cultural barriers and often out-right racism. Despite
segregation and oppression, the Chinese community in Hanford flourished and developed a vibrant Chinatown, known as
China Alley, which soon boasted restaurants, herb stores, laundries, gambling houses, grocers and a Taoist temple—all
constructed of local California redwood and brick fired on site. A short, densely lined street, China Alley was a vibrant hub
where immigrants met to talk politics, share a meal, read Chinese newspapers and play mah-jong. Reaching its peak in the
pre-World War II years, China Alley increasingly served a more diverse population, especially as racial barriers were
challenged and eased.

Patrimonio Cultural
Depuis que les hommes habitent notre pays, ils ont laissé des vestiges un peu partout. L'archéologie ne cesse d'aller de
découverte en découverte, de la grotte préhistorique à la villa gallo-romaine ou au four à briques abandonné depuis les
débuts du moyen âge. On connaît des puits autrefois situés en surface, que l'accumulation séculaire de ruines et de
bâtiments a enfoui aujourd'hui à deux ou trois niveaux sous le rez de chaussée ! Au fond des caves, des celliers ou du chai,
peut se cacher peut-être le lieu jalousement gardé où sont conservées les bouteilles les plus poussiéreuses. Bien des
châteaux, témoins de guerres de vengeances, de cruautés, possèdent des échappées souterraines, des cachettes, des
prisons, sans oublier…les oubliettes ! Le sol de beaucoup d'églises recouvre des cryptes. Les persécutions religieuses, les
grandes pestes nous ont laissé des catacombes et des ossuaires…

Conservation of Villa dei Vescovi Completed - Padua - Italy
Villa dei Vescovi represents the Renaissance revival of antiquity and a concern for strict
attention to proportion and humanistic ideals. As the property remained in the hands of the
bishops of Padua for over 400 years, it provides a unique view of the artistic values of the early
sixteenth century. The villa’s architect, Giovanni Maria Falconnetto, was one of the most
prominent and artistic visionaries of his time and was well known for his Renaissance design
principles and accomplishments.

Día Internacional del Recuerdo de la Trata de Esclavos y de su Abolición

AD Classics: Moscow Metro / Robert Pogrebnoi and Yuriy Zenkivich - 1935 - 1959 - The Russian Federation
The city of Moscow experienced a huge size and population boom following the industrial development and railway
construction of the late 19th century. At this time, horse-drawn cars and trams were the main form of transportation, but
soon the horses were not enough to fuel the city’s rapid expansion. As a result, plans were made for development of a new
peripheral ring railway that would carry freight throughout the city. Many years later, underground lines for passengers
were linked to the original railway. These lines quickly turned the railway into a booming metropolitan transit center,
eventually becoming what is today known as the Moscow Metro. More on the development of the Moscow Metro after the
break.

Indian Supreme Court Orders Security for Hindu Temple Treasure Worth Billions - Thiruvananthapuram Kerala - India
India's Supreme Court ordered Friday that a security plan be drawn up to protect a Hindu temple where devotees left
billions worth of treasures over the centuries.
The state of Kerala and the former royal rulers of the region were directed by the court to explain how they plan to
safeguard the gold, silver and precious stones that were stored in vaults at the 16th century Sree Padmanabhaswamy
Temple.
The temple, dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu, was built by the maharajas who ruled the then-kingdom of Travancore.
The former royal family has remained the trustees of the temple after India's independence in 1947.

architectural landmarks in the world. From a denominational standpoint, the Lotus temple is open to all practitioners
regardless of religious affiliation and functions more as a gathering place of worship to interested visitors.

Nostalgia 2.0: ¿Se ha convertido la Preservación Histórica en un deporte pasivo?
La nostalgia está de repente en estado de sitio, sobre todo bajo la apariencia de preservación
histórica. La nostalgia, que despertó una vez la demolición de la Estación Penn de Nueva
York, fue un importante incentivo para salvar la Grand Central Terminal. Hoy, no obstante, la
forma de nostalgia que conocemos como preservación histórica está recibiendo golpes por
todas partes. (Esto se me presenta como irónico en un momento en el que Woody Allen está
consiguiendo un gran éxito comercial con su ensoñadora y nostálgica Midnight in Paris). Los
presupuestos a nivel nacional y estatal están siendo triturados, una exposición reciente en el
New Museum en Nueva York la demonizaba, y algunos artículos recientes en el New York Times ofrecieron
caracterizaciones extrañas pero convenientes de sus propósitos, transcendencia e impacto. Imagínense, el moderno
movimiento de conservación histórica no es una víctima inocente y sin duda se aqueja de muchas heridas auto-infligidas.
No obstante, esta actitud no tiene precedentes, y mucho más preocupante, la gente parece estar contenta con sentarse en
el banquillo y contemplar la masacre (si es que si quiera se molesó en prestarle atención).

Ask President Obama to take historic action for Fort Monroe - Hampton - Virginia - USA
As a concerned citizen who believes we need to be careful stewards of our heritage and save historic places, I am writing
to express my support for designating Fort Monroe a National Monument.
This fortification has been the scene of several pivotal moments in U.S. history. Some of the first enslaved Africans in the
New World were introduced at the fortification in 1619, and 242 years later, the first runaway slaves were protected as
Contraband there, giving rise to its name “Freedom’s Fortress.” Fort Monroe, considered one of the most important historic
sites in America, deserves a special place in our consciousness, yet the Army’s decommissioning of the fort in September
2011 leaves the site’s future in peril.

Photography book 'Stone Walls: Personal Boundaries'
By artist Mariana Cook
Damiani, $50, 192 pages, ISBN 978-88-6208-169-6
A new photography book Stone Walls: Personal Boundaries (Damiani, $50, 192 pages, ISBN 978-886208-169-6) by artist Mariana Cook examines in stunning detail one of man’s earliest and most
enduring methods of defining territories – the stone wall. Sculptural and practical, majestic and
humble, the dry stone walls showcased in the book capture a fundamental relationship between
human beings and the landscape. The book will be published October 1, 2011.

UN OUVRAGE COLLECTIF - Zoos humains et exhibitions coloniale - 150 ans d'invention de l'Autre
By Nicolas Bancel
ISBN : 9782707144010
Parution : août 2004
Sous la direction de Pascal Blanchard, Nicolas Bancel, Gilles Boëtsch, Éric Deroo et Sandrine Lemaire. Les «
zoos humains », symboles oubliés de l'histoire contemporaine, ont été totalement refoulés de notre
mémoire collective. Ces exhibitions de « sauvages », aussi bien des « exotiques » que des « monstres »,
ont pourtant été, en Europe, aux États-Unis et au Japon, une étape majeure du passage progressif d'un
racisme scientifique à un racisme populaire. Au carrefour du discours savant, des cultures de masse et de l'intérêt des
puissances coloniales, ces exhibitions ont touché plus d'un milliard quatre cent millions de visiteurs depuis l'exhibition en
Europe de la Vénus hottentote au début du XIXe siècle.
Êtres difformes, populations exotiques et étrangetés de la nature se retrouvent sur scène côte à côte comme appartenant
à un univers de l’anormalité, séparés des visiteurs par une barrière réelle ou imaginaire. Véritable ouvrage de synthèse sur
la question, rassemblant les meilleurs spécialistes internationaux, les contributions proposées ici mettent en perspective la
« spectacularisation » de l'Autre, à l'origine de bien des stéréotypes actuels.

Return(ed) to Paradise: The Deportation Experience in Samoa and Tonga
By Natalia Pereira
ISBN 978-92-3-104200-3
Published in 2011
UNESCO has long recognized the importance of contributing to peace and security by promoting
collaboration amongst nations through education, science and culture. Through these media we foster
universal respect for justice, the rule of law and for the human rights and fundamental freedoms for the
peoples of the world.
The issue of forced repatriation has been the focus of many debates amongst international organizations, governments and
those in the academic and intellectual fields. An effective response will require the cooperation of all social actors, without
exception, to provide a long-term perspective on the resettlement of those who are returned to their country of origin. It is
for this reason that decision-making procedures include the affected populations and policies are specially designed to
ensure co- ordination and effectiveness for those being repatriated.

MUSEUM International N°248: Haiti, Cultural Heritage and Reconstruction
This issue of MUSEUM International focuses on Haiti's heritage a year on from the earthquake. Leaving
aside the tragedy itself, the articles aim to underline the scientific and administrative structures put in
place in the decades prior to the earthquake for the preservation of Haiti's cultural heritage. It also
attempts to highlight the positive effects of such structures in strengthening the nation and its current
reconstruction.
In its own way, this issue contributes to the cultural dimension of the Action Plan for the National Recovery
and Development of Haiti. The first chapter contains an outline of institutional achievements by Haitian
leaders. It provides a framework for restoring the broken ties between contemporary Haitian society and its history. The
challenge of development based on cultural reconstruction is expressed in the second chapter through the voices of
international players and researchers.
This issue attests to the potential on which Haiti and its political and professional leaders can draw to achieve the challenge
ahead. As the painful memories of the tragedy fade, the international community must now maintain its determination to

Architecture and Innovation for Heritage
Giuseppe De Giovanni, Emanuele Walter Angelico
ISBN: 978-88-548-3837-6
Gli articoli, raccolti in questo volume, si rivolgono essenzialmente a quell´aspetto del ?senso del passato?
(sense of past) che tende alla valorizzazione e alla conservazione del Patrimonio Culturale (Heritage),
tramandato dalle civiltà e dalle culture del passato, attraverso l´attivazione di processi innovativi per la
sua salvaguardia, la sua protezione e fruizione e, infine, per la sua conoscenza. La collettività deve
considerare lo Heritage, la cui natura è materiale e immateriale, non come oggetto di culto ma come
promotore di nuovi artifici e di nuove attività, ovvero d´innovazione.

Theme of Relationship Between Human and Nature Explored in Exhibition at
Rosphoto - Saint Petersburg - Russian Federation - 15 June - 20 July 2011
The exhibition by Mathias Kessler(Austria) at ROSPHOTO is result of the author's research
into the theme of relationship between human and nature.
"In 2004, after a string of natural disasters and as a result of the ongoing media focus on
global warming, I undertook to develop a second "look" at nature in order to better show
how we perceive and encounter it today. After conducting research on the Western
perception and historical representation of nature, I developed different bodies of work that
examine and update Western landscape traditions, in order to better reveal how the depiction of landscape is also the
matter of its production, and show how historical changes in these representations relate to contemporary images of the
landscape.

Landscapes of Cohabitation / doxiadis+ - Antiparos - Greece
The Aegean islands are known for their great and dramatic beauty. Significantly, this beauty is the result of the interaction
of natural and human agents, both in its creation and in its perception and representation: the white chapel on top of a hill,
the traditional village overlooking the sunset, the golden wheat-fields overlooking the sea. These elements were not
constructed with any attempts or notion of the picturesque; however, they are the result of self-organizing systems of
structures and processes developed over millennia.

Boustrophedon Garden / PLANT Architect - Québec City - Québec - Canada
The Boustrophedon Garden weaves these ideas together to create a three-dimensional landscape “cloth” that registers all
observations of growth and change in its warp and weft, creating a three-dimensional garden journal as if in anticipation of
improving next year’s garden. The public was able to scrutinize and be part of the changing patterns of growth and bloom
recorded over the summer. Increasing in complexity and volume throughout the summer, recorded data and vegetation
proceeded to engulf the visitor, while creating a dialogue with the plants that continued to change during their growth
trajectory. The garden made a playful connection between food production, dynamism of plant processes, and the careful
science of understanding growth necessary to our future survival.

Paisajes Culturales
EEUU
Durante el final de los años 40, Edward Hawkins tuvo la visión de
desarrollar una comunidad de hogares contemporáneos en el
mercado inmobiliario de posguerra en Denver. Una extensión de
tierra cultivable al sur de la Universidad de Denver, por entonces el
interior de la ciudad, se convirtió en Arapahoe Acres. Hoy, el
vecindario de casas con tejados bajos y las calles curvilíneas cubiertas de un techo arbóreo maduro continúa siendo un
enclave único en las afueras de Denver. No obstante, los cambios cumulativos al paisaje de diseño amenazan ahora la
estética planificada de la comunidad.

While select rooms have been reopened, the conservatory’s
centerpiece, the Fern Room, was heavily damaged and only a

Les Jardins du précambrien - À venir / Coming up / Próximo - Val David - Quebec - Canada
El 11o Simposio Internacional de Arte In Situ, bajo el tema LEGADOS, será el evento más significativo de
nuestros simposios desde 1995. Después de hace más de quince años, las memorias de los lugares, las
obras y los creadores del pasado se superpondrán en nuestros caminos. De estos pasos sucesivos,
acumulados como palimpsestos, nace una reflexión acerca de la cuestión de la herencia y la perennidad:
¿Cuál será el medio ambiente o la cultura que legaremos a nuestros hijos en una sociedad de desecho y
consumo a ultranza, donde lo efímero y virtual reinan sin memoria de la historia? Los artistas, poetas,
compositores y conferencistas invitados comparten esta reflexión y cada uno a su manera cuestiona el
sentido de LEGADOS.

Kunstmuseum Receives a Place of Contemplation: Japan Garden - KunstmuseumWolfsburg - Lower Saxony - Germany
When he assumed his new post in January 2006, Dr. Markus Brüderlin already pointed to a
future project that lay close to his heart: to turn the unused sculpture court planned by Peter
Schweger, the architect of the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, into a Zen garden. Schweger's idea
of a sculpture court was not followed up on after the museum's opening in 1994. The
courtyard lay idle and was used for the most diverse purposes.

heritage. i.e. objets d’art etc of la Compagnie Internationale des Wagons-Lits due to take place on the 27th September at
Christies in Paris.
it is not a question of the sale of carriages (sold with a subsidiary company of the SNCF) but of objects, tables, posters…
preserved with the passing of years since the birth of the Co. to see the Internet site in lower part of the text
Perhaps by trying to find a benefactor or to convince the Walloon, Belgian or European institutions to preserve, by a
preliminary global purchase this exceptional heritage.(most of these institutions have already been made aware as a
matter of some urgency) that it is in the general interest in the field of education both cultural and historic.

Fading borders: Growing Reforestation - Quisqueya Verde Programme - The
Dominican Republic
The visit of Mr. Gnacadja comes at a crucial time, especially when the reforestation efforts from
the Dominican government are gaining traction. The government has been promoting the
reforestation programs through its flagship national program called the Quisqeya Verde
Program. During his two-day visit on 7-8 July 2011, Mr. Gnacadja planted saplings in the fields
and met with local communities. The government plans to plant 30 million trees in 4 years
under the project.
This is part of the Ministry of Environment's "Green Border" initiative to promote ideas and actions on the border zone with
Haiti under the Quisqeya program. The initiative includes reforestation along the borders of Haiti and the Dominican
Republic and it involves the participation from the local communities in the region.

UNCCD (United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification): Stories from local communities
The United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification fosters the creation of an enabling environment that promotes
action at the local level, the implementation of a cooperation framework built upon partnership agreements and the
promotion of activities integrated into a coherent development strategy with a view to enhancing the involvement of civil
society in the intergovernmental and decision-making process.
To date, more than 900 civil society organisations have been accredited with observer status to the Conference of the
Parties. The participation of these entities in the implementation of the Convention and their contribution to the various
meetings is a necessary component of the successful implementation of the Convention through its Ten Year Strategic
Plan.

Tug-of-War Over Iraqi Jewish Trove of Books and Other Materials in United States Hands
A trove of Jewish books and other materials, rescued from a sewage-filled Baghdad basement during the 2003 invasion, is
now caught up in a tug-of-war between the U.S. and Iraq.
Ranging from a medieval religious book to children's Hebrew primers, from photos to Torah cases, the collection is
testimony to a once vibrant Jewish community in Baghdad. Their present-day context is the relationship, fraught with
distrust, between postwar Iraq and its Jewish diaspora.
Discovered in a basement used by Saddam Hussein's secret police, the collection was sent to the U.S. for safekeeping and
restoration, and sat at the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) in Maryland until last year, when Iraqi
officials started a campaign to get it back.

Priceless Manuscript Stolen from Spanish Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela - Spain
A priceless collection of 12th-century religious manuscripts was stolen from a cathedral in the northwestern Spanish city of
Santiago de Compostela, police said Friday.
Galicia regional police inspector Benigno Roca said a special unit has been set up to try to recover the Calixtinus Codex,
which went missing from a strongbox in the cathedral's archive room last week. He said there were no signs of a break-in.
Roca said European police forces had been alerted.
Cathedral dean Jose Maria Diaz said the richly-decorated tome was of incalculable value. He said whoever took it knew this
and knew where to find it.

Lincoln Document Returned to National Archives
A letter to President Abraham Lincoln from three military surgeons requesting a chaplain to tend to the wounded and dying
soldiers after the Battle of Antietam, accompanied by the president's signed response, were returned to the National
Archives on Thursday.
Bill Panagopulos, president of Alexander Historical Auctions, in Stamford, Conn., helped negotiate the return and handed
the documents over to David Ferriero, archivist of the United States, at a ceremony at the National Archives.
"I'm not just returning it to the Archives, I'm returning it to the United States," Panagopulos said. "This building is where it
belongs. It's coming home."

Black Seaman's 1861 Heroics Recalled in New Film by New York-Based Documentary Producers - USA
The Union's first black hero of the Civil War wasn't one of the African-American soldiers of the 54th Massachusetts Infantry
Regiment, famously depicted in the 1989 film "Glory," but rather a merchant ship's cook who took up arms to prevent
being sold into slavery after a Confederate raider captured his vessel.
At least that's the reckoning of some historians and a pair of upstate New York-based documentary producers who have
included William Tillman's story in their new film on the short-but-prolific wartime record of the brig Jefferson Davis, a
Southern privateer that seized several Union ships in the opening months of the war.

Only Copy of Magna Carta in the United States - National Archives - Washington D.C. - USA

has revealed that the full text of that English declaration of human rights remains intact even though some words are
faded and illegible to the eye, the National Archives said Tuesday.
A $13.5 million gift from philanthropist David Rubenstein — owner of the handwritten document — is funding the
conservation effort as well preparations for an upcoming exhibit.

Canadian Architectural Archives Release Toronto City Hall Design Proposals
The first modern building in Toronto, City Hall built in 1965 and designed by Viljo Revell, was just
one of 500 proposals that enter the international design competition between 1957 and 1958.
Ideas to expand the Old City Hall began in 1925, followed by an array of proposals for a new
place to house the municipal government and courts. Mark Osbaldeston’s Unbuilt Toronto: A
History of the City that Might Have Been covers in detail the design proposals for Toronto, and in
particular, those proposals not selected for the new city hall. In 1955, before an international
design competition was announced, the Toronto city council allowed citizens to vote on proposals
by the firms Marani & Morris, Mathers & Haldenby, and Shore & Moffat. The general attitude toward the proposal was that
it was drab and boxy and the public refused to support it. In response to this criticism, the city opened up the design of the
new city hall in 1957. By April of 1958, 500 entries were submitted, filling CNE’s Horticulture Building with numerous
models. The number was widdled down to eight finalists and finally Revell’s design was selected to be built. Viljo Revell’s
design was the first iconic modern building to be built in Toronto, preceding Mies Van der Rohe’s TD Centre by a few years.

Museum and Archive - Jabotinsky Center / Chyutin Architects Ltd - RamatGan - Israel
The Jabotinsky Institute, designed by Chyutin Architects Ltd, engages an archival
collation and display of materials connected with Ze’ev Jabotinsky and with the
underground Jewish nationalist movements prior to the establishment of the State
of Israel. The building will be erected on a triangular plot with roads on either side
of it and its apex pointing to an intersection.
The base of the triangle faces a public space to be shared by two other public
buildings whose function has as yet not been decided. The building is designed as a spearhead pointing towards the
intersection, from which it rises towards the urban expanse, bursting out of the depths of the ground. The volume design
projects power and momentum as well as an ascetic simplicity devoid of ornamentation.

Programa de intercambio de formadores americanos para trabajos de conservación
de las iglesias de Arica Parinacota – Chile
Estas iglesias reflejan las tradiciones de arte y fe en sus comunidades locales, y se han
mantenido en su mayor parte intactas debido a sus emplazamientos rurales. No obstante,
desde que el puerto libre de Arica se construyera en los años 60, ha habido un crecimiento
sostenido de la emigración hacia los centros urbanos en búsqueda de trabajo. Las tradiciones
locales y los materiales para el mantenimiento se están reemplazando por otros modernos y
menos apropiados, y la pérdida de la población ha hecho que disminuya la mano de obra
disponible para cuidar de las iglesias. Se ha desarrollado una propuesta para los edificios regionales, el mantenimiento de
los sitios, y la formación de la comunidad para documentar las iglesias, reforzar las circunscripciones y las oportunidades, y
renovar el valor de estas estructuras de adobe.

Día Internacional de la Juventud
Mensaje de la Sra. Irina Bokova, Directora General de la UNESCO con motivo del Día Internacional de la Juventud, 12 de
agosto de 2011
…En este Día Internacional de la Juventud 2011, quisiera expresar mi reconocimiento por la contribución de los jóvenes de
ambos sexos de todo el mundo a la lucha por la dignidad humana y las libertades fundamentales.
Los “temblores de juventud” que se han producido en el mundo árabe han mostrado la capacidad de los jóvenes para
impulsar el cambio. La lucha por la participación democrática ha sacudido regímenes y ha evidenciado la fuerza de las
aspiraciones al disfrute de los derechos humanos y las libertades fundamentales…

La Directora General pronuncia un discurso ante el Foro Mundial de Rectores de
Universidad
El pasado 13 de agosto la Directora General de la UNESCO, Sra. Irina Bokova, se dirigió a unos
170 rectores de universidad de 80 países, reunidos en Shenzhen (China), y los exhortó a
colaborar activamente para instituir sistemas de educación superior equitativos y de calidad
como requisito vital para la consecución de los Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio.
"La mundialización trae consigo una mayor competencia. Debemos forjar no sólo instituciones,
sino también sistemas educativos de clase mundial, acordes con la evolución de las sociedades
y las necesidades de los mercados laborales, que fomenten el pensamiento crítico y la dignidad individual, que formen a
los docentes y sienten las bases de los avances científicos necesarios para responder a las dificultades de hoy y de
mañana", dijo la Sra. Bokova. Además, recalcó que la educación superior es un bien de interés general, que reviste
carácter estratégico para todos los países y supone una importante responsabilidad ética para con la sociedad.

Programa de intercambio de formadores americanos para trabajos de conservación
de las iglesias de Arica Parinacota – Chile
Estas iglesias reflejan las tradiciones de arte y fe en sus comunidades locales, y se han
mantenido en su mayor parte intactas debido a sus emplazamientos rurales. No obstante,
desde que el puerto libre de Arica se construyera en los años 60, ha habido un crecimiento
sostenido de la emigración hacia los centros urbanos en búsqueda de trabajo. Las tradiciones
locales y los materiales para el mantenimiento se están reemplazando por otros modernos y
menos apropiados, y la pérdida de la población ha hecho que disminuya la mano de obra
disponible para cuidar de las iglesias. Se ha desarrollado una propuesta para los edificios regionales, el mantenimiento de
los sitios, y la formación de la comunidad para documentar las iglesias, reforzar las circunscripciones y las oportunidades, y
renovar el valor de estas estructuras de adobe.

Aujourd'hui, le Centre de Culture Européenne, fort de son expérience, poursuit son oeuvre. Il s'engage promouvoir une
Europe du "vivre ensemble". Les multiples témoignages de ces jeunes -devenus adultes- nous confortent dans l'idée que
leur séjour au Centre de Culture Européenne a profodément modifié leur vision du monde et de l'Europe. Une Europe qui
60 ans après sa fondation reste encore trop fragile. Ce sont sussi ces jeunes qui nous ont convaincus de la nécessité
d'amplifier largement notre expérience, de lui donner écho au-delà du territoire national et de créer la Fondation des
Centres de Culture Européenne. Il s'agit là d'une iniciative essentielle, indispensable et urgente, une exigence d'avenir.

Barefoot College - India's women solar engineers light up rural life - Tilonia Rajasthan - India
Mira Bai frowns in concentration at the complicated zigzag of wires on the panel in front of
her. Unfathomable to most, they speak loud and clear to the 60-year-old grandmother.
Despite being illiterate, she now knows exactly which wires to connect to create the magical
connection between the sun and the panel so it absorbs and transfers rays to the battery that
will later light up her house.
Bai is one of 15,000 solar engineers who have attended a six-month training course at a rural
college in India’s northwest state of Rajasthan, enabling them to bring renewable power to their villages.
Bai’s classmates are similar to her in many ways. They are over 35 years of age, illiterate or semi-literate, and have never
left their villages.

Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC) : Classement de Shanghaï 2011
Il est évident que malgré ses biais pour la science et la médecine, le classement de ShanghaïNouvelle fenêtre a le mérite
de l’indépendance, nonobstant les efforts du ministère qui, aux frais du contribuable français, a reçu en grandes pompes
l’équipe de Jiao Tong en espérant leur faire prendre PSL pour une Université (voir dépêche AEF). C’est tout de même
choquant de constater que les étudiants les plus subventionnés de France, de l’ordre de sept fois plus que les étudiants de
l’UPMC utilisent en plus, avec la complicité du ministère, l’argent du contribuable pour essayer d’évincer les Universités de
la tête du classement. Quand le jeune médaillé Fields Ngo Bao Chau est arrivé en France, il est bienheureux qu’une
université, l’UPMC, l’ait inscrit et lui ait donné ses premiers cours, car il n’avait pas passé de concours.

HOW THE INTERNET IS REVOLUTIONIZING EDUCATION
The Internet has transformed education dramatically, and in a very fundamental way: the grasp of power has shifted from
the hands of the institution those of the student. Whether enrolled at your local university or simply looking to deepen your
knowledge of a subject, the options for education have been more diverse. Education is more accessible than ever before
in human history, thanks entirely to the Internet.

El Correo de la UNESCO 2011/3 - Cómo los jóvenes cambian el mundo
El Año Internacional de la Juventud (agosto de 2010 - agosto de 2011) ha sido inesperadamente
revolucionario. A principios de 2011 los jóvenes se rebelaron en Túnez y Egipto, sucesivamente, y luego
hubo otros movimientos juveniles en algunos países europeos, especialmente en España. En el resto del
mundo, la juventud se moviliza en favor de causas muy diversas recurriendo a medios muy diferentes.
Mucho más concienciados de lo que se solía suponer, los jóvenes parecen decididos a empuñar las riendas
de su destino. Este número del Correo les da la palabra para que expongan sus preocupaciones y
presenten su acción.

The Royal Collection's First Book for Children: Does The Queen Wear Her Crown in Bed?
By Marion McAuley, illustrations by Katy Sleight
Royal Collection Publications, July 2011
ISBN 978-1-905686-41-1
Does The Queen wear her crown in bed and who walks the corgis when she’s busy? Those are the sort of
details children really want to know about life at Buckingham Palace.
Inspired by the many questions that children have asked her, Marion McAuley, a former Head of
Education at the Royal Collection, decided to provide the answers in the Royal Household’s first children’s
book about The Queen’s London home.
In this 32-page book, illustrated by Katy Sleight, a footman guides two children around the Palace, showing them some of
its rooms and explaining The Queen’s most important duties – and what you should do if you meet her.

Las ciencias sociales de los países occidentales siguen siendo las que más influencia tienen a nivel
mundial, pero esta disciplina se está extendiendo rápidamente en Asia y América Latina, y más
concretamente en China y Brasil. En África Subsahariana, los científicos sociales de Sudáfrica, Nigeria y
Kenya producen el 75% de las publicaciones académicas. En Asia Meridional, las ciencias sociales tienen
una prioridad más bien escasa, excepto en algunos centros de investigación de excelencia en India. Estas son algunas de
las conclusiones del Informe Mundial sobre las Ciencias Sociales 2010, “Las brechas del conocimiento”, que se presentó el
25 de junio en la Sede de la UNESCO en París, Francia.

Reboiser ne résoudra pas le problème du réchauffement climatique
Même si les forêts sont des puits de carbone, les projets de reboisement n'auront qu'un impact
très limité sur le changement climatique, affirme une étude scientifique publiée dimanche dans
la revue Nature Geoscience.
Vivek Arora de l'Université de Victoria en Colombie britannique (Canada) et Alvaro Montenegro
de l'université de St. Francis Xavier en Nouvelle-Ecosse (Canada) ont modélisé cinq scénarios de
reboisement sur 50 ans, de 2011 à 2060.
Ils ont alors examiné les effets sur la terre, l'eau et l'air si la température à la surface de la terre
augmentait de 3 degrés d'ici 2100, par rapport aux niveaux préindustriels de 1850.

Changement climatique : la forêt méditerranéenne en première ligne- Projet

Comment la sécheresse affecte-t-elle la forêt méditerranéenne ? C’est pour répondre à cette
question que les chercheurs du projet Drought ont réalisé une étude originale consistant à
suivre en continu un écosystème de 4 étages de végétation (pins d’Alep, chênes verts,
filaires à grandes feuilles et chênes kermès).
Le Cemagref, qui assure dans ce projet le suivi phénologique des arbres, leur
développement saisonnier, peut se prévaloir de résultats inédits. L’architecture de l’arbre, sa
forme typique qui découle de règles strictes de croissance, n’est pas immuable comme on le pensait jusqu’à présent. Elle
est modifiée de façon persistante par le réchauffement climatique.

Shouf Cedar forests lead Lebanon eco-tourism boom - Lebanon
Shouf, Lebanon (CNN) -- Lebanon's 2,000 hectares of cedar forest are a peaceful oasis for hikers, mountain bikers and
bird-watchers, a world away from the hustle and bustle of Beirut.
In the Shouf Cedar Reserve, the country's largest natural forest, villagers make a living selling home-made jam, honey,
pickled olives and wine to tourists.
The area was declared was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 2005. While sustainable tourism is booming, the
ancient forests are under threat from climate change.
Nizar Hani, manager of Shouf Cedar Reserve, said: "Right now we have a new challenge for the cedar forest in Lebanon,
which is the climate change.
"The expected threat to the cedar forest is (that) the natural regeneration will be affected, because the cedar seeds need
to be under snow for two months minimum."

Los elefantes de bosque de África central se están quedando sin espacio
La supervivencia de los elefantes de bosque de África central depende de limitar el acceso a los bosques tropicales por
medio de carreteras, asentamientos y otros puntos de entrada a un hábitat que es de otro modo inaccesible, según ha
puesto de manifiesto un estudio a cargo de la Sociedad para la Conservación de la Vida Silvestre y a otros socios.
El estudio confirma que los puntos de entrada a los bosques tropicales que facilitan las carreteras, los ríos y otros lugares
de acceso han tenido como resultado la presencia de más cazadores y menos elefantes. Además, las carreteras y otras
infraestructuras de construcción en los países donde existen los elefantes de bosque todavía existen y carecen de
esfuerzos adecuados contra la caza furtiva, lo cual pone el futuro del menos conocido primo del elefante de sabana en
peligro.

Mineral mining surge threatens India's forests - Orissa State - India
India faces a tough choice between preserving its forests and digging up the valuable
minerals that lie beneath them. Nowhere is this more obvious than in Orissa State - home to
35 percent of India’s iron ore resources, which it is exploiting fast.
Orissa’s production of iron ore alone increased seven times in the decade to 2009, topping 77
million tonnes as global demand, particularly from China, drove export prices higher. The
state is also rich in bauxite, chromites and coal, holding 55 percent, 95 percent and 24
percent of India's total deposits respectively.

DETER (Real Time Deforestation Detection System) indicates 225 km2 of Amazon
deforested area in July - Brazil
The numbers demonstrated by DETER are important indicators for Control and Supervision
Organizations. However, to compute an annual rate of forest removal by clearcutting on
Amazon, INPE works with PRODES (www.obt.inpe.br/prodes), which uses high resolution
images capable of showing small deforestation points.
Even if DETER is important to indicate deforestation trends, its results are not proportional to
PRODES. The estimate of forest loss computed by PRODES in August 2010-July 2011 period, is
going to be released by INPE at the end of this year.

Senegal farmers fight desertification with trees - Senegal

fertility to their degraded soil.
The people of Khatre Sy, about 130km north of Senegal’s capital, Dakar, decided to pool their
farmlands together and zone off sections to allow trees – mainly varieties of the African
acacia – to regenerate. They used some of the regeneration sites as farmlands where they
planted crops – groundnuts, millet and sorghum.

Brazil's Amazon settlers 'scratching out a living' - Brazil
The charred tree stumps in the Amazon rain forest tell their own story.
Even though the trees here are probably the best-protected anywhere on earth - at
least in theory - someone is still cutting them down and burning them. For several
years now, the Brazilian government has insisted that the rate of deforestation in the
Amazon has declined sharply. But earlier this year, it suddenly jumped again, to a rate
five times higher than last year. These trees play a vital part in the management of
global weather patterns.
They absorb carbon dioxide, which otherwise would contribute to climate change. That is why Brazil is under pressure to
protect the forest.

Now every stranger entering Cheran is stopped at barricades made of logs, guarded by

rifles creeps through the underbrush, signaling the way forward with birdcalls, on daily patrols to protect the timber.

2011, année des forêts : La revanche des mangroves
Les mangroves ont longtemps été perçues par les hommes comme des marécages
malodorants, inutiles et sans valeur. Souvent infestées de moustiques, avec la particularité
d’être inondées et inondables par la mer et les eaux continentales, ces forêts que l’on
trouve le long des côtes des régions tropicales n’ont pas bonne réputation. Pourtant, elles
sont un des écosystèmes les plus riches et les plus productifs de la planète.
Les racines enchevêtrées des palétuviers, l’arbre emblématique des mangroves, offrent un
précieux refuge pour les espèces vulnérables et constituent une nurserie pour les poissons
juvéniles, à l’abri des prédateurs. À l’interface entre la terre et la mer, ces forêts amphibies abritent également de
nombreuses espèces terrestres. On y rencontre des oiseaux, des singes, des reptiles, des biches et au Bengladesh, les
Sundarbans, la plus grande mangrove du monde, sont même l’un des derniers refuges pour le tigre du Bengale, loin de
l’homme.

Fading borders: Growing Reforestation - Quisqueya Verde Programme - The
Dominican Republic
The visit of Mr. Gnacadja comes at a crucial time, especially when the reforestation efforts from
the Dominican government are gaining traction. The government has been promoting the
reforestation programs through its flagship national program called the Quisqeya Verde
Program. During his two-day visit on 7-8 July 2011, Mr. Gnacadja planted saplings in the fields
and met with local communities. The government plans to plant 30 million trees in 4 years
under the project.
This is part of the Ministry of Environment's "Green Border" initiative to promote ideas and actions on the border zone with
Haiti under the Quisqeya program. The initiative includes reforestation along the borders of Haiti and the Dominican
Republic and it involves the participation from the local communities in the region.

A National and International Analysis of Changing Forest Density
By Aapo Rautiainen, Iddo Wernick, Paul E. Waggoner, Jesse H. Ausubel, Pekka E. Kauppi
Like cities, forests grow by spreading out or by growing denser. Both inventories taken steadily by a single nation and
other inventories gathered recently from many nations by the United Nations confirm the asynchronous effects of changing
area and of density or volume per hectare. United States forests spread little after 1953, while growing density per hectare
increased national volume and thus sequestered carbon. The 2010 United Nations appraisal of global forests during the
briefer span of two decades after 1990 reveals a similar pattern: A slowing decline of area with growing volume means
growing density in 68 nations encompassing 72% of reported global forest land and 68% of reported global carbon mass.
To summarize, the nations were placed in 5 regions named for continents. During 1990–2010 national density grew
unevenly, but nevertheless grew in all regions. Growing density was responsible for substantially increasing sequestered
carbon in the European and North American regions, despite smaller changes in area. Density nudged upward in the
African and South American regions as area loss outstripped the loss of carbon. For the Asian region, density grew in the
first decade and fell slightly in the second as forest area expanded. The different courses of area and density disqualify
area as a proxy for volume and carbon. Applying forestry methods traditionally used to measure timber volumes still offers
a necessary route to measuring carbon stocks. With little expansion of forest area, managing for timber growth and density
offered a way to increase carbon stocks.

Newly Unveiled Plesiosaur Fossil Suggests Ancient Sea Reptile Gave Birth, didn't Lay Eggs
The remains of a giant sea creature are providing the first proof that these prehistoric reptiles gave birth to their young
rather than laying eggs.
Plesiosaurs, which lived at the time of dinosaurs, were large carnivorous sea animals with broad bodies and two pairs of
flippers. Researchers have long questioned whether they would have been able to crawl onto land and lay eggs like other
reptiles or gave birth in the water like whales.

Coseismic and postseismic slip of the 2011 magnitude-9 Tohoku-Oki earthquake
By Shinzaburo Ozawa, Takuya Nishimura, Hisashi Suito, Tomokazu Kobayashi, Mikio Tobita & Tetsuro Imakiire
Most large earthquakes occur along an oceanic trench, where an oceanic plate subducts beneath a continental plate.
Massive earthquakes with a moment magnitude, Mw, of nine have been known to occur in only a few areas, including
Chile, Alaska, Kamchatka and Sumatra. No historical records exist of a Mw = 9 earthquake along the Japan trench, where
the Pacific plate subducts beneath the Okhotsk plate, with the possible exception of the ad 869 Jogan earthquake, the
magnitude of which has not been well constrained. However, the strain accumulation rate estimated there from recent
geodetic observations is much higher than the average strain rate released in previous interplate earthquakes.

L'existence de dépôts glaciaires caractéristiques, retrouvés à plusieurs endroits du globe aux basses
latitudes, nous indiquent qu'il y a 635 millions d'années (époque Marinoene), les calottes polaires
auraient atteint l'équateur, c'est la théorie de la « Terre boule de neige ». Depuis, de telles
glaciations extrêmes ne se sont pas reproduites, ce qui a permis le développement de formes de vie
de plus en plus évoluées. Une des hypothèses invoquées pour expliquer la fin de cette « Terre boule
de neige » (et donc une déglaciation) est le relargage de méthane dans l'atmosphère, provenant de
la déstabilisation de clathrate (hydrates de méthane) des sédiments océaniques ou du permafrost. La seule preuve
géologique derrière cette hypothèse était l'existence de veines de calcite pauvres en 13C (le méthane étant en effet pauvre
en 13C) dans les dolomites de Chine qui surmontent les dépôts glaciaires. Les travaux d'une équipe de chercheurs français
et américains montrent que ces veines de calcites se sont formées bien après la fin de l'âge glaciaire et sont dues à une
activité hydrothermale. Si le méthane a eu le rôle que certains lui imputent pour la sortie de la Terre boule de Neige, alors
il n'aurait pas laissé de trace. Une étude parue dans la revue Nature.

El tsunami de Japón hizo que los icebergs se hicieran
trizas en la Antártica
Los efectos del terremoto de marzo de 2011 y del tsunami
que lo siguió y que devastó zonas de Japón pueden sentirse
en lugares tan lejanos como la Antártica. Las imágenes por
satélite muestran como se formaron nuevos icebergs
después de que el tsunami chocara con el Sulzberger Ice
Shelf.
Mediante el empleo de imágenes por radar adquiridas por el satélite Envisat de la ESA, un equipo de la NASA pudo avistar
los icebergs – el mayor de los cuales medía alrededor de 6,5 por 9,5 km en superficie de área y alrededor de 80 m de
grosor.

Hebrew University of Jerusalem researchers have conducted an initial survey of what appears to be an important, ancient
water source in a cave that was been discovered during excavation work for a new train station being constructed at the
entrance to Jerusalem.
The work was done by members of the Cave Research Unit of the university, headed by Prof. Amos Frumkin of the
Department of Geography. The cave was exposed near the base of a deep service shaft that was dug for the train tunnel
leading into the new station, located opposite the main bus station in Jerusalem. The full length of the cave is as yet
unexplored.

World's Oldest Fossils Found in Ancient Australian Beach
When Martin Brasier discovered what looked like fossil cells in between the cemented sand
grains of an ancient beach in Western Australia, he knew he had his work cut out for him. One
of the biggest challenges for geologists is deciding when a fossil is really a fossil, particularly
when it comes to early life. There are no bones to go by, and the mineralized spheres
representing simple cells and sometimes filaments could easily be crystals or other
irregularities in the sediment itself. What's more, Brasier, a geologist at the University of
Oxford in the United Kingdom, has been one of the most vocal critics of many of the most
ancient fossils other researchers have found.

Fossils of Earth's Oldest Trees Donated to New York State Museum - Albany - New York State - USA
Fossils of the Earth’s oldest trees have been donated to the New York State Museum after workers uncovered them during
a project to reconstruct the Gilboa Dam in Schoharie County.
Engineers for the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) discovered 35 Gilboa stump specimens in
the same location where similar Gilboa stumps were uncovered in 1920 when the dam was constructed. Other smaller
discoveries were made in the 1850s and in 1869. Twelve new stumps will be added to what is now the world’s largest
collection of Gilboa stumps at the State Museum. The stumps are widely cited as evidence of the world’s oldest forest.

China launches campaign to regulate rare earth production - People's Republic of China
China has launched a five-month inspection campaign that aims to crack down on rare earth production that is not in line
with government regulations, the country's industry ministry said on Monday.
Rare earth producers that have no directive production plan, exceed production quotas or continue to use outdated or
environmentally destructive production techniques will be forced to halt operation or face cancellation of quotas and
licenses, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology said in a statement on its website.
The campaign, which starts from August 1 to December 31, will also clamp down on the sale or purchase of rare earth
products from mines that violate industry regulations, the statement said.

Observatório Nacional descobre indícios de um Rio Subterrâneo debaixo do Rio Amazonas - Brazil
Em agosto de 2011, os pesquisadores da Coordenação de Geofísica do Observatório Nacional – ON apresentaram um
trabalho no 12o Congresso Internacional da Sociedade Brasiliera de Geofísica, no Rio de Janeiro, apontando indícios da
existência de um rio subterrâneo debaixo do Rio Amazonas.
Esta fantástica descoberta faz parte de um trabalho de doutorado da aluna Elizabeth Tavares Pimentel, sob orientação do
pesquisador Valiya Hamza. O trabalho é baseado na análise de dados de temperaturas de 241 poços profundos perfurados
pela PETROBRAS, nas décadas de 1970 e 1980, na região Amazônica. A área de estudo abrange as bacias sedimentares de
Acre, Solimões, Amazonas, Marajó e Barreirinhas.
Os resultados obtidos permitiram identificação de movimentação das águas subterrâneas em profundidades de até 4000
metros nesta região. A metodologia utilizada baseia-se na identificação de sinais térmicos típicos de movimentos de fluidos
em meios porosos.

An Archaeopteryx-like theropod from China and the origin of Avialae - The People's Republic of China
Xing Xu, Hailu You, Kai Du & Fenglu Han
Archaeopteryx is widely accepted as being the most basal bird, and accordingly it is regarded as central to understanding
avialan origins; however, recent discoveries of derived maniraptorans have weakened the avialan status of Archaeopteryx.
Here we report a new Archaeopteryx-like theropod from China. This find further demonstrates that many features formerly
regarded as being diagnostic of Avialae, including long and robust forelimbs, actually characterize the more inclusive group
Paraves (composed of the avialans and the deinonychosaurs). Notably, adding the new taxon into a comprehensive
phylogenetic analysis shifts Archaeopteryx to the Deinonychosauria. Despite only tentative statistical support, this result
challenges the centrality of Archaeopteryx in the transition to birds. If this new phylogenetic hypothesis can be confirmed
by further investigation, current assumptions regarding the avialan ancestral condition will need to be re-evaluated.

vertébrés
Comment les mâchoires, facteur essentiel dans le succès évolutif des vertébrés et la diversité
de leur adaptation, sont-elles apparues subitement chez les poissons il y a 435 millions
d’années ? Une équipe de chercheurs a réussi à expliquer ce phénomène grâce à une étude
poussée de l’anatomie interne de fossiles de galéaspides, poissons sans mâchoires.
L’apparition des mâchoires chez les vertébrés aurait été rendue possible grâce à une
réorganisation du cerveau et des organes du sens bien avant l’origine des mâchoires. Cette
étude menée par des chercheurs de l’Université de Bristol, de l’Académie chinoise des Sciences, du CNRS, du Muséum
national d’Histoire naturelle, de l’Institut suisse Paul Scherrer et l’Université ETH de Zurich a été publiée le 18 août dernier

Les petites mais fréquentes éruptions volcaniques contribuent à refroidir le climat
Malgré l'absence d'éruptions volcaniques majeures, les fréquentes mais faibles éruptions volcaniques
qu'a connues notre planète au cours des dix dernières années ont injecté dans la stratosphère une
quantité d'aérosols suffisante pour réduire temporairement mais de manière significative le
réchauffement climatique dû aux émissions de gaz à effet de serre. C'est ce que révèlent deux études
franco-américaines récentes, auxquelles des chercheurs du Laboratoire atmosphères, milieux,
observations spatiales (LATMOS/IPSL, UVSQ / CNRS / Université Paris 6) ont participé. La prise en
compte de la quantité moyenne d'aérosols stratosphériques s'avère de ce fait importante pour la

Guide des curiosités géologiques du Pays bigouden - France
Par Sylvain BLAIS, Michel BALLEVRE, Pierrick GRAVIOU et Joël ROLET
Collection : Guides Géologiques Régionaux
ISBN : 978-2-7159-2509-0
Le Pays bigouden présente une grande variété de roches et de paysages : le granite de Pont-l'Abbé,
si bien exposé de la Pointe de la Torche à l'embouchure de l'Odet, la baie d'Audierne avec son cordon
de galets et ses nombreux étangs littoraux, et surtout - une rareté en Bretagne - des témoins d'un
océan disparu.
Autant de sites remarquables que ce guide des curiosités géologiques du Pays bigouden vous invite à parcourir.
Ce patrimoine naturel vous permettra de retracer l'histoire géologique du Pays bigouden, histoire qui voit la création d'un
océan puis sa disparition lors de la formation d'une chaîne de montagne aujourdh'hui érodée. Le long du littoral comme au
fil des sentiers, ce choix de sites sera prétexte à un dépaysement dans le lointain passé, où les âges se comptent en
millions d'années.
Bon voyage en compagnie de ce guide, qui se conclut par quelques pages sur les milieux naturels de la région.

The Secretariat of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild
Fauna and Flora (CITES) has announced today the withdrawal of a recommendation to
suspend trade with Nigeria that had been in place since 2005 because of increasing
illegal wildlife trade and a lack of adequate enforcement.
The decision to lift the suspension was adopted during the 61st meeting of the CITES Standing Committee held in Geneva
last week (SC61). Nigeria has designated the National Environmental Standards and Regulations Enforcement Agency
(NESREA) as the country’s new CITES enforcement authority and has enacted new wildlife regulations that fully comply
with CITES requirements and can now be ranked in Category 1 under the CITES legislation project.

La Dame à l’hermine avait été volée par les nazis pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale et c’est la première fois que l’œuvre
retourne en Allemagne depuis sa restitution à la Pologne. L’œuvre est peinte sur une planche de châtaignier et appartient à
la famille Czartoryski depuis le début du XIXe siècle. Elle sera visible au Bode Museum de Berlin qui clôturera son
exposition « Visages de la Renaissance — chefs-d’œuvre de l’art du portrait italien » le 20 novembre sans l’oeuvre de
Léonard de Vinci, car son œuvre est attendue à Londres le 9 novembre.

New York's Met to Return 10 Artifacts to Egypt - New York City - New York State - USA
New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art has agreed to return to Cairo 19 artifacts dating back to the time of ancient Egypt's
teenage king Tutankhamen, the state news agency MENA said on Saturday. Egypt has been pushing for the repatriation of
major pharaonic treasures it says were plundered by foreign powers, including the Rosetta Stone now in the British
Museum and Queen Nefertiti's bust from Berlin's Neues Museum. The agreement between the New York museum and
Egypt's antiquities council on the return of the artifacts was signed in November after a series of negotiations, MENA said.

The Ramsar Convention on Wetlands: 40 Years of Action - Planet Workshops
At lot has been achieved over the last 40 years. The signature of the Convention on Wetlands in Ramsar, Iran, in 1971 by
the representatives of 18 nations was the culmination of 9 years of hard work and careful diplomacy on the part of many
people devoted to the cause. Forty years have now passed and today the Convention numbers 160 signatory countries –
practically nine times the original number – and it is possible to observe the remarkable progress that has been achieved in
that time. The Convention has become the spearhead of global efforts for the conservation and sustainable use of wetlands
and their water resources, as well as for the conservation of the diversity of life that they support.

Convention d’Aarhus : L'Union européenne et la France doivent accepter d'ouvrir les portes de la démocratie
environnementale
Depuis hier, les Etats signataires de la Convention d’Aarhus sur l’information, la participation du public et l’accès à la
justice en matière environnementale sont réunis à Chisinau, Moldavie. L’adhésion de nouveaux pays non membres de la
Commission économique des Nations Unies pour l’Europe (UNECE), appelée de ses vœux par France Nature Environnement
et les Amis de la terre France, est en négociation. Inquiétudes.
Une décision qui restreindrait l’accès de pays volontaires à la démocratie environnementale
La Convention d’Aarhus se rattache directement aux droits de l’homme de nature politique et est un outil puissant de mise
en œuvre du Principe 10 de la Déclaration de Rio de 1992 pour la démocratie environnementale.

Meeting of the open ended intergovernmental working group on the treatment of nominations to the
Representative List by the Committee, Subsidiary Body and the Secretariat - UNESCO Headquarters - Paris France ( 12-14 September 2011)
The Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage decided (Decision 5.COM 7) to
convene before its sixth session an open ended intergovernmental working group to discuss possible measures to improve
the treatment of nominations to the Representative List by the Committee, Subsidiary Body and the Secretariat.
This open-ended intergovernmental working group was established by the Committee following debate on the
establishment of a Subsidiary Body on the examination of nominations to the Representative List, during which the
Committee had to determine the number of nominations that it would have to examine in the 2011 cycle, as well as the
working methods of the Subsidiary Body. The meeting of the working group is organized thanks to the financial support of
Japan.

UNCCD (United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification): Stories from local communities
The United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification fosters the creation of an enabling environment that promotes
action at the local level, the implementation of a cooperation framework built upon partnership agreements and the
promotion of activities integrated into a coherent development strategy with a view to enhancing the involvement of civil
society in the intergovernmental and decision-making process.
To date, more than 900 civil society organisations have been accredited with observer status to the Conference of the
Parties. The participation of these entities in the implementation of the Convention and their contribution to the various
meetings is a necessary component of the successful implementation of the Convention through its Ten Year Strategic

Fading borders: Growing Reforestation - Quisqueya Verde Programme - The
Dominican Republic
The visit of Mr. Gnacadja comes at a crucial time, especially when the reforestation efforts from
the Dominican government are gaining traction. The government has been promoting the
reforestation programs through its flagship national program called the Quisqeya Verde
Program. During his two-day visit on 7-8 July 2011, Mr. Gnacadja planted saplings in the fields
and met with local communities. The government plans to plant 30 million trees in 4 years
under the project.
This is part of the Ministry of Environment's "Green Border" initiative to promote ideas and actions on the border zone with
Haiti under the Quisqeya program. The initiative includes reforestation along the borders of Haiti and the Dominican
Republic and it involves the participation from the local communities in the region.

Mixed decisions on Hungarian looted art lawsuits
The heirs of a Jewish art collector can proceed with a lawsuit against Hungary seeking the return of art seized during the
Holocaust that is worth more than $100 million, a federal judge ruled.
But, as Hungary requested, other heirs of Baron Mor Lipot Herzog with older lawsuits over the art, cannot proceed, the U.
S. District Court judge in Washington decided Thursday.

Revitalización del centro histórico de Craco (Centro Storico di Craco) – Craco – Italia
Destacando sobre su sobrecogedor paisaje, la ciudad de Craco, Italia, data del año 1000 AD,
cuando su grandiosa torre normanda se erigió. Los descubrimientos arqueológicos, no obstante,
han revelado que asentamientos micénicos desarrollaron labores agrícolas entre los siglos 9 y
10 BC. Posado sobre una cordillera de colinas labradas por el serpenteante río Cavone, Craco se
usó en tiempos normandos como un puesto de avanzada, reconociendo el amplio terreno ante
las venideras invasiones saracenas.
Hacia el año 1500, la pequeña ciudad había empezado a tomar forma. Edificios de piedra
blanca, reflejando la arcilla suavemente dorada de la tierra que les rodeaba, comenzaron a tomar forma en torno a la torre
original, colgando de la colina inclinada. La población local siguió escalando, alcanzando 2,600 metros en 1561. En 1630,
Caco estableció una orden monástica permanente con la construcción del monasterio de San Pedro. El monasterio
constituyó una importante contribución a la comunidad, influyendo en la ciencia, la religión y la economía en una sociedad
que se mantenía mediante la producción de granos, verduras, vino, aceite y algodón.

Architecture City Guide: Beijing
This week, with the help of our readers, our Architecture City Guide is headed to Beijing. Beijing has a range of
architectural styles, but the three most prevalent are the traditional imperial style (the Forbidden City), the “Sino-Sov”
style (boxy structures built between the 1950s and 70s), and lastly the explosion of a modern corporate style that is
punctuated with Starchitect buildings like OMA’s CCTV TV Station HQ. We put together a list of 12 modern/contemporary
buildings that we feel provides a good starting point. It is far from complete. There are dozens of other great buildings that
are not our list, and we are looking to add to the list in the near future. Please add your favorites in the comment section
below so we can add them on the second go around. Again thank you to all our readers who sent in their suggestions and
photographs. The city guides would not be possible without your help.

Post Office in Ben Franklin's House in Philadelphia's Historic Old City May Close - Philadelphia - Pennsylvania USA
A post office in a building that Benjamin Franklin once owned is on the Postal Service's list of branches that could close.
The post office in Philadelphia's historic Old City neighborhood is the only one in the country that doesn't fly a U.S. flag.
That's because there wasn't one in 1775, when Franklin founded what has evolved into today's Postal Service.
There's also a postal museum upstairs from the so-called B. Free Franklin Post Office, located in a house once owned by
Franklin. It opened as a U.S. post office in 1975, the 200th anniversary of Franklin's appointment by the Continental
Congress as the country's first postmaster general.

Architecture City Guide: Paris - Paris - France
This week, with the help of our readers, our Architecture City Guide is headed to Paris. For centuries Paris has been the
laboratory where innovative architects and artists have come to test their ideas. This has created a city that has bit of
everything. Where the architecture of some cities seems to undergo phases of punctuated equilibrium, Paris’s architectural
fossil record gives an impression of gradualism; all the missing links are there. This makes it easy to trace the origins of
the most contemporary ideas throughout history. Nothing seems to come out of nowhere. If you look around you kind find
the design’s inspiration running through the city’s Roman, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Rocco, Neo-Classical,
Empire, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Modern, Post-Modern, and Contemporary Architecture. Seen in another context, many of
Paris’s buildings might seem out of place, but the bones of this city support the newest iterations on the oldest and most
profound questions. The 24 contemporary designs that comprise our list probably should not be viewed outside of this
context, even though that is the stated goal of some of the designs.

Looking Back at the 11 Most: Boston's Historic
Theaters - Boston - Massachusetts - USA
Sixteen years ago, when Boston Mayor Tom Menino (an
Advisor Emeritus of the National Trust) nominated Boston’s
historic theaters to the National Trust’s list of 11 Most
Endangered Historic Places, never would we have imagined
what twisty-turny path historic preservation would take. Or,
how long it would take!
This preservation saga is a great reminder of the adages: Good things take time. Rome wasn’t built in a day. Persistence
pays off. And, patience is a virtue.

Following the recent historical renovation of the market place and wine market in the northern and

AD Classics: Haas Haus by Hans Hollein - 1987 - 1990 - Vienna - Austria
The modern Hass Haus, designed by Hans Hollein, was controversial from its initiation in 1987.
The intrusion of a contemporary glass and stone building was met with a resistance, much to
do with its location in the shadow of Vienna’s oldest and greatest architectural masterpieces –
St. Stephen’s Cathedral. If anything, the building’s locale in St. Stephens Square is most
complementary to the antique cathedral; the contours of the church are brilliantly mirrored on
the Hass Haus’ façade and display that modern architecture can be momentous, as well as
unobtrusive to its historical context.

SoMa Historic District Transformation - San Francisco - California - USA
In 2009, the Uptown Tenderloin Historic District was created in an attempt to
preserve the rich history of the buildings, neighborhoods and communities that lay
north of San Francisco’s Market Street. It has not only kept developers from
modifying or even eradicating key buildings that have shaped the city of San
Francisco, but has also helped to prevent the process of gentrification, enabling
middle and lower-class inhabitants to continue living in the city at reasonable rates.
Although building projects north of Market Street are now heavily restricted, not all of
San Francisco is off limits.

The Transition Handbook: From oil dependency to local resilience - Transition Towns:
avanposti del futuro
By Rob Hopkins
Published by Green Books
We live in an oil-dependent world, and have got to this level of dependency in a very short space of
time, using vast reserves of oil in the process - without thinking ahead to plan for when the supply is
not so plentiful. Most of us avoid thinking about what happens when oil runs out (or becomes
prohibitively expensive), but The Transition Handbook shows how the inevitable and profound
changes ahead can have a positive outcome. These changes can lead to the rebirth of local communities, which will grow
more of their own food, generate their own power, and build their own houses using local materials. They can also
encourage the development of local currencies, keeping money in the local area.
There are now over 35 formal Transition Initiatives in the UK, including towns, cities, islands, villages and peninsulas, with
over 500 globally at the earlier stages of launching this process. With little proactivity at government level, communities
are taking matters into their own hands and acting locally. Within peak oil and climate change is the potential for the
greatest economic, social and cultural renaissance we have ever seen. If your community has not yet become a Transition
Initiative, this guide offers you the tools to get started.

construction of the late 19th century. At this time, horse-drawn cars and trams were the main form of transportation, but
soon the horses were not enough to fuel the city’s rapid expansion. As a result, plans were made for development of a new
peripheral ring railway that would carry freight throughout the city. Many years later, underground lines for passengers
were linked to the original railway. These lines quickly turned the railway into a booming metropolitan transit center,
eventually becoming what is today known as the Moscow Metro. More on the development of the Moscow Metro after the
break.

The Printing Factory Lofts / Montgomery Sisam Architects - Toronto - Ontario - Canada
Originally built to house the printing presses of Rolph Clark Stone, 201 Carlaw Avenue has been a Leslieville landmark
since its completion in 1913 when this community was at the heart of industry in Toronto.
The Printing Factory Lofts project preserves three facades and incorporates significant portions of the original factory
building into the project including the classical main entrance portico that opens to a grand wooden staircase below vaulted
ceilings. In addition, the original “sawtooth” industrial skylights were rebuilt and integrated into the two storey loft units.
The centre portion of the factory building was carved out to accommodate an eight storey glass tower, two garden courts
and a series of townhouses facing Boston Avenue, the residential street to the east.

AD Classics: Olivetti Showroom / Carlo Scarpa - 1957-1958 - Venice - Italy
The Olivetti Showroom by Carlo Scarpa has recently come full circle. In the late 1950s Adriano Olivetti commissioned
Scarpa to design a display space for his Olivetti products. The resulting Olivetti Showroom was a beautiful space used for
decades by Olivetti before changing owners. In April of 2011 Scarpa’s Olivetti Showroom re-emerged once again as the
display space for Olivetti products. Though this time Scarpa’s design of the space is what is truly on display.

In Progress: King's Cross Station / John McAslan + Partners - London - United Kingdom
“It’s incredible to watch the reinvention of the station taking shape into a compelling piece of place-making for London. You
can already see how the Western Concourse – Europe’s largest single span station structure and the heart of the
development – reconnects this much-loved Victorian terminus to its context. It’s immensely satisfying to see the project
move forward at such pace and we look forward to celebrating the project’s completion in 2012 for the London Olympics.”John McAslan, Chairman John McAslan + Partners

Mystery of Alaska's Missing Moon Rocks has Been Solved; Former Resident Sues - Juneau - Alaska - USA
The mystery of Alaska's missing moon rocks has been solved. Getting them back to a state museum likely will depend on a
judge. Alaska officials are contesting a lawsuit filed by a former resident who claims he rescued the moon rocks from a
garbage heap 38 years ago.
Coleman Anderson, who now lives in Texas, sued for formal title to the rocks in December. If he doesn't receive title, he's
asking to be compensated for finding and returning the rocks, which are valued by collecto

Colloque « Sauvegarde du patrimoine astronomique » - Paris - France (20-22 septembre 2011)
En 1879, l'amiral Mouchez propose la création d'observatoires en province dans le but de décentraliser les travaux
effectués à l'Observatoire de Paris. C'était une idée que Le Verrier avait essayé de promouvoir en modifiant le
fonctionnement des observatoires de Marseille et de Toulouse et en créant une station astronomique à Alger.
A la même époque, bon nombre des meilleurs opticiens du monde – Léon Foucault, les frères Henry… – produisent en
France des dizaines de miroirs et d'objectifs de toutes tailles, collaborent avec des constructeurs d'instruments pour
amateurs comme Secrétan, Mailhat, Lutz, Bardou et bien d'autres. Nous retrouvons aujourd'hui ces objets et ces matériels,
de même que les observations menées à l'époque, dans les grands observatoires, chez des particuliers, dans les
établissements scolaires.

mourned their dead, with a dynamic sword dance by masked men, accompanied by drums and flutes.
But everything changed after the March 11 tsunami tore into Japan's northeastern coast, sweeping away homes,
performers and precious equipment in coastal areas, like Urahama, that had long treasured their traditional performing folk
arts.
Now, people in many of the tightly-knit coastal communities fear the disaster may prove to be the final blow for some 100
troupes that had already been struggling to survive as the towns where they were based aged and young people left to
seek work.

Salvados por sus ancestros
Para el primer ministro Naoto Kan el terremoto, el tsunami y la crisis nuclear que devastó a Japón en
marzo son «la peor crisis desde la Segunda Guerra Mundial». En la medida en que se compara esta
tragedia con el lanzamiento de las bombas atómicas sobre las ciudades de Hiroshima y Nagasaki en 1945,
su declaración está cargada de signifi cado. Aunque la cifra provisional de los muertos –25 000– sólo es la
décima parte del terremoto y el tsunami en el Océano Índico en 2004 y el terremoto en Haití el año
pasado, la tragedia ha causado un profundo trauma en la población. Es posible, además, que se convierta
en el desastre más costoso en el mundo hasta la fecha: el gobierno estima su costo en unos US$300 mil
millones.

MUSEUM International N°248: Haiti, Cultural Heritage and Reconstruction
This issue of MUSEUM International focuses on Haiti's heritage a year on from the earthquake. Leaving
aside the tragedy itself, the articles aim to underline the scientific and administrative structures put in
place in the decades prior to the earthquake for the preservation of Haiti's cultural heritage. It also
attempts to highlight the positive effects of such structures in strengthening the nation and its current
reconstruction.
In its own way, this issue contributes to the cultural dimension of the Action Plan for the National Recovery
and Development of Haiti. The first chapter contains an outline of institutional achievements by Haitian
leaders. It provides a framework for restoring the broken ties between contemporary Haitian society and its history. The
challenge of development based on cultural reconstruction is expressed in the second chapter through the voices of
international players and researchers.
This issue attests to the potential on which Haiti and its political and professional leaders can draw to achieve the challenge
ahead. As the painful memories of the tragedy fade, the international community must now maintain its determination to
join in their endeavor and take up the challenge of sustainable solidarity with Haiti.

dans le Pas-de-Calais. Il comprend les estuaires de la Bresle, de la Somme, de l'Authie, de la Canche, de la Liane, du
Wimereux et de la Slack.
Habitants, vacanciers, collectivités, instances professionnelles, services de l'Etat et établissements publics, sont invités à
donner leur avis et leur suggestion sur ce projet ayant un périmètre de 2.290 km2.
42 mairies du littoral sont concernées. La commission d'enquête qui assurera des permanences dans chaque mairie
concernée, rendra son rapport et la synthèse des avis en fin d'année au ministère en charge de l'Ecologie.
Ce parc marin est initialement prévu pour fin 2011 aux côtés des parcs de Côte Vermeille et des Glorieuses. Ils succèdent à
ceux de l'Iroise en 2007 et de Mayotte début 2010.

Un informe de importancia histórica investiga la incidencia ambiental de la acuicultura; Halla
que la fauna marina criada en granjas es clave par ala futura seguridad alimentaria global
Un nuevo y amplio análisis difundido por el WorldFish Center y Conservación Internacional (CI) ha
investigado cómo inciden en el medio ambiente los principales sistemas y especies de producción
acuícola mundial y hoy ofrece, por primera vez en la historia, una evaluación global de las tendencias e
impacto de los alimentos de origen marino generados en granjas. El análisis ha encontrado que, de los
75 sistemas de producción de especies acuáticas, a mayor volumen producido, mayor es el trastorno
ecológico resultante, pero que, comparada con otras formas de generación de proteína animal como el
ganado, la acuicultura es más eficiente.

Promocionando las piscifactorías de recreo responsable a escala global
Los expertos acuerdan las primeras pautas globales sobre las piscifactorías de recreo responsable
Una consulta internacional de expertos convocada por la Organización para la Agricultura y la Alimentación de las Naciones
Unidas (FAO), acordó hoy las primeras directrices para las piscifactorías de recreo responsable. Las directrices técnicas,
que se pusieron en conocimiento del Comité para las Piscifactorías de la FAO (COFI), apoyan las piscifactorías de recreo
sostenibles mediante la puesta en práctica de las provisiones relevantes del Código de conducta de la FAO para las
piscifactorías responsables en consejos específicos para las piscifactorías de recreo sostenible. Se dirigen a los hacedores
de políticas sobre las piscifactorías y a los gestores, a todos aquellos que toman decisiones, a ONGs, a piscifactorías de
recreo y a otros participantes y se prepararon siguiendo las llamadas de los miembros de la FAO.

Troisième révision de la charte du futur parc national des Calanques : « Tu me fends le cœur ! » - Marseille France
Suite à la parution de la version 3 de la charte du parc national des Calanques et avant l'Assemblée générale du
Groupement d'intérêt public (GIP) Calanques du 27 juin 2011, FNE et sa fédération régionale URVN, l'UDVN 13, la LPO et
la Ligue ROC estiment que certains aspects de ce projet demeurent encore très insatisfaisants, voici le principaux :
S'inquiétant d'un cœur de parc en dentelle, reflétant les conflits d'intérêts, les associations environnementales demandent
notamment que l'archipel du Frioul, qui constitue une composante importante du caractère du parc, soit inclus, non pas
dans l'aire optimale d'adhésion, mais dans le cœur terrestre et marin du parc afin de protéger au mieux sa richesse
faunistique et floristique. C'est un non-sens de reconnaître ce territoire comme étant exceptionnel, et de ne pas l'intégrer
en cœur de parc !

El tsunami de Japón hizo que los icebergs se hicieran trizas en la Antártica
Los efectos del terremoto de marzo de 2011 y del tsunami que lo siguió y que devastó
zonas de Japón pueden sentirse en lugares tan lejanos como la Antártica. Las imágenes por
satélite muestran como se formaron nuevos icebergs después de que el tsunami chocara
con el Sulzberger Ice Shelf.
Mediante el empleo de imágenes por radar adquiridas por el satélite Envisat de la ESA, un
equipo de la NASA pudo avistar los icebergs – el mayor de los cuales medía alrededor de
6,5 por 9,5 km en superficie de área y alrededor de 80 m de grosor.

Bahamas signs anti-poaching legislation to protect sharks - The Bahamas
Anti-poaching legislation was signed July 5, 2011 to create a sanctuary that protects
sharks in Bahamian waters from being hunted down for their fins.
“The Bahamas’ prohibition on long line fishing gear 20 years ago protected the marine
resources of The Bahamas and ensured that our shark populations would remain
healthy,” said Eric Carey, executive director of The Bahamas National Trust (BNT).
Mr. Carey said, however, there were no specific laws in The Bahamas for the
protection of sharks, the crown jewels of ocean health. He said the new regulations
signed by the Minister of Agriculture and Marine Resources Larry Cartwright, ensure that sharks can continue to thrive for
generations in Bahamian waters.

Madagascar's 'tortoise mafia' on the attack - Madagascar
By Hannah McNeish
BBC News, Madagascar
Madagascar's poachers, known in conservation circles as "the tortoise mafia", are
increasingly hunting down the Indian Ocean island's reptiles, threatening them with
extinction.
The tortoise mafia, who allegedly include corrupt government officials and smuggling
syndicates, are satisfying a growing demand locally for tortoise meat and abroad for
exotic pets and tortoise shells used in aphrodisiacs.

Long-term effects of ocean warming on the prokaryotic community: evidence from the vibrios
The long-term effects of ocean warming on prokaryotic communities are unknown because of lack of historical data. We
overcame this gap by applying a retrospective molecular analysis to the bacterial community on formalin-fixed samples
from the historical Continuous Plankton Recorder archive, which is one of the longest and most geographically extensive
collections of marine biological samples in the world. We showed that during the last half century, ubiquitous marine
bacteria of the Vibrio genus, including Vibrio cholerae, increased in dominance within the plankton-associated bacterial
community of the North Sea, where an unprecedented increase in bathing infections related to these bacteria was recently
reported. Among environmental variables, increased sea surface temperature explained 45% of the variance in Vibrio data,
supporting the view that ocean warming is favouring the spread of vibrios and may be the cause of the globally increasing
trend in their associated diseases.

CLAMER (Climate Change & European Marine Ecosystem Research): Prodigal Plankton Species Makes First
Known Migration from Pacific to Atlantic via Pole
Some 800,000 years ago - about the time early human tribes were learning to make fire - a
tiny species of plankton called Neodenticula seminae went extinct in the North Atlantic.
Today, that microscopic plant has become an Atlantic resident again, having drifted from
the Pacific through the Arctic Ocean thanks to dramatically reduced polar ice, scientists
report.
The melting Arctic has opened a Northwest Passage across the Pole for the tiny algae. And
while it's a food source, it isn't being welcomed back by experts, who say any changes at the
base of the marine food web could, like an earthquake, shake or even topple the pillars of
existing Atlantic ocean life.

Ballenas radioactivas frente a la costa de Fukushima
Frente a la costa de los restos de la central de Fukushima, los elementos radioactivos aportados al océano por las fugas y
los vertidos de agua de enfriamiento contaminan a los organismos marinos. ¡Hasta a las ballenas! De hecho, se encontró
cesio radioactivo en dos individuos de esta especie abatidos cerca de Hokkaido.
Justo cuatro meses después del seísmo y el maremoto que devastó las costas del noreste de Japón, la central nuclear de
Fukushima Dai-ichi, destruida, vomita aún cada día importantes cantidades de radiactividad en el medio ambiente. Debido
a las toneladas de agua vertidas en una improvisación de última oportunidad para enfriar los reactores heridos, el océano
cercano recuperó sobre todo los elementos radiactivos. Aunque aún están en curso tentativas de Tepco y Areva para
limitar los vertidos y rellenar las fugas, la central no puede ser estanca. Ahora bien, es necesario seguir enfriando los
corazones y el combustible usado. Entonces el agua radioactiva se vierte siempre en el mar. Nadie puede hacer nada.

La Comisión Europea propone un nuevo plan para la gestión sostenible del salmón del Mar Báltico
La Comisión Europea presentó una propuesta de un nuevo reglamento del Consejo y el Parlamento Europeo que establece
un plan plurianual para la gestión sostenible del salmón del Mar Báltico.
Los dictámenes científicos indican que las existencias que albergan algunos de los aproximadamente 30 cursos de agua de
la cuenca del Báltico colonizados por el salmón salvaje se sitúan fuera de los límites biológicos de seguridad y presentan un
riesgo de empobrecimiento genético. Un plan de gestión no vinculante establecido en 1997 por la Comisión internacional
pesquera del Mar Báltico (CIPMB) expiró en 2010; a falta de un nuevo plan, la gestión futura de las existencias no
obedecerá a ningún objetivo claro, lo que obligará a pescadores y a empresas turísticas a operar en un contexto privado de
toda previsión.

El aumento de la temperatura del Mar Mediterráneo disminuye la resistencia de los
corales y moluscos a su acidificación
Algunos organismos calcificadores (mejillones, conchas y corales) protegen su cáscara o su
esqueleto de la acción corrosiva del agua de mar. Esto les confiere una extraordinaria
capacidad para resistir a la acidificación creciente del agua de mar, vinculada a las emisiones
de gas carbónico (CO2) en la atmósfera. A pesar de todo, ésta se reduce cuando expone a
estos organismos a una elevada temperatura (superior a 28,5°C) durante un largo período. Es
lo que revela un estudio internacional (1) codirigido por Jean-Pierre Gattuso del Laboratorio de
oceanografía de Villefranche (CNRS/UPMC) y publicado en el estudio Natural Climate Change. Resultados que hacen pensar
que el recalentamiento previsto del Mar Mediterráneo, unido a la acidificación de sus aguas, va a aumentar la frecuencia de
los episodios de mortalidad de estos organismos.

Rapid sea-level rise and reef back-stepping at the close of the last interglacial highstand
By Paul Blanchon, Anton Eisenhauer, Jan Fietzke & Volker Liebetrau
Widespread evidence of a +4–6-m sea-level highstand during the last interglacial period (Marine Isotope Stage 5e) has led
to warnings that modern ice sheets will deteriorate owing to global warming and initiate a rise of similar magnitude by ad
2100 (ref. 1). The rate of this projected rise is based on ice-sheet melting simulations and downplays discoveries of more
rapid ice loss. Knowing the rate at which sea level reached its highstand during the last interglacial period is fundamental
in assessing if such rapid ice-loss processes could lead to future catastrophic sea-level rise. The best direct record of sea
level during this highstand comes from well-dated fossil reefs in stable areas…

Sur les 19,5 km de cet étang entre Balaruc et Marseillan, l'étang de Thau, large de 4 km, est surtout connu pour la qualité
de ses huîtres, de Bouzigues. Mais cette réserve naturelle, mélange d'eau douce et d'eau de mer, est aussi un écrin.

Oyster-Tecture and the Gowanus Canal - New York City - New York State - USA
The Gowanus Canal is one of America’s most polluted waterways, and its location in the
New York Harbor made it one of the many places that were effected by flooding as a result
of Hurricane Irene. If that isn’t enough to think about, last year the EPA declared the
Gowanus Canal as a Superfund site, “As a result of years of discharges, storm water runoff,
sewer outflows and industrial pollutants, the Gowanus Canal has become one of the nation’s
most extensively contaminated water bodies. Contaminants include PCBs, coal tar wastes,
heavy metals and volatile organics. The contamination poses a threat to the nearby
residents who use the canal for fishing and recreation.”

Bientôt la première réunion d'experts internationaux autour des aires marines protégées en haute mer Hyères - France - (8 et 9 septembre 2011)
L'année prochaine devrait être mis en place un réseau mondial d'aires marines protégées (AMP), qui recouvrera toutes les
zones biogéographiques [1] significatives en haute mer ainsi que leurs faunes et habitats. Le nombre d'AMP est en
constante augmentation. Néanmoins, l'objectif pour 2012 ne sera probablement pas atteint, les difficultés se multiplient
lorsqu'il s'agit de la haute mer. En ce qui concerne par exemple les "aires marines protégées de Méditerranée", seuls 0,5%
de la surface marine sont d'ores et déjà classés, alors que 10% sont prévus par la Convention sur la biodiversité (CBD)
d'ici à 2012. La question de savoir comment et qui doit décider de ce qui doit être protégé reste souvent ouverte dans ce
cas de figure. La législation ne semble pas encore tout à fait claire à ce sujet.

2011, année des forêts : La revanche des mangroves
Les mangroves ont longtemps été perçues par les hommes comme des marécages
malodorants, inutiles et sans valeur. Souvent infestées de moustiques, avec la particularité
d’être inondées et inondables par la mer et les eaux continentales, ces forêts que l’on
trouve le long des côtes des régions tropicales n’ont pas bonne réputation. Pourtant, elles
sont un des écosystèmes les plus riches et les plus productifs de la planète.
Les racines enchevêtrées des palétuviers, l’arbre emblématique des mangroves, offrent un
précieux refuge pour les espèces vulnérables et constituent une nurserie pour les poissons
juvéniles, à l’abri des prédateurs. À l’interface entre la terre et la mer, ces forêts amphibies abritent également de
nombreuses espèces terrestres. On y rencontre des oiseaux, des singes, des reptiles, des biches et au Bengladesh, les
Sundarbans, la plus grande mangrove du monde, sont même l’un des derniers refuges pour le tigre du Bengale, loin de
l’homme.

Création de la réserve naturelle nationale de la Casse de la Belle Henriette en Vendée - France
Nathalie KOSCIUSKO-MORIZET, ministre de l’Écologie, du Développement durable, des Transports et du Logement, a salué
la création de la réserve naturelle nationale de la Casse de la Belle Henriette (Vendée), par décret du 31 août 2011 paru
aujourd’hui au Journal officiel.
Située sur les communes de la Tranche-sur-mer et de la Faute-sur-mer, la réserve naturelle nationale de la Casse de la
Belle Henriette s’étend sur près de 340 hectares situés essentiellement sur le domaine maritime. Ce classement trouve son
origine en 1996 dans le plan d'actions en faveur du Marais poitevin et marque la volonté des acteurs de préserver un site
de haute valeur écologique figurant parmi les rares témoins de l’évolution naturelle, depuis plus d’un siècle, du cordon
dunaire.

Les tétrapodes pourraient être apparus en milieu marin, dès la base du Dévonien (416 Ma)
A quel moment de l’histoire de la Terre et dans quel environnement les premiers vertébrés

European Commission: Mediterranean Marine Protected Area provides fish larvae for neighbouring areas
New research has found evidence that a small Marine Protected Area (MPA) in the Mediterranean has the potential to
deliver larvae of some fish species to surrounding, non-protected areas. This is one of few studies to investigate this
desired role of MPAs and its design could be used to evaluate current and future MPAs elsewhere.

Les microalgues calcaires, témoins de l'acidification des océans
Le phytoplancton calcaire, maillon important du cycle du carbone océanique, apparait très sensible à

France Nature Environnement (FNE) : Thon rouge : il est toujours plus intéressant de frauder que de respecter
la loi
Demain, 9 septembre, le tribunal correctionnel de Marseille va juger deux affaires de pêche illégale de thons rouges. FNE
et l’URVN-FNE PACA, sa fédération régionale en PACA, se constituent parties civiles dans ces deux affaires dont l’une
concerne un pêcheur déjà condamné en mars 2010 pour des faits similaires.
Dans le premier cas, deux navires ont pêché près de 700 kg de thons rouges en Méditerranée avec un filet maillant
dérivant, outil de pêche interdit au niveau communautaire depuis 2002. Dans le second cas, un autre navire a, quant à lui,
pêché avec un engin interdit plus de 2 tonnes de thon rouge !
FNE et l’URVN-FNE PACA ont décidé d’agir. Non seulement parce que le thon rouge est une espèce vulnérable mais aussi
parce qu’elle fait l’objet d’une pêche intensive et incontrôlée stimulée par son prix très haut en rapport avec sa rareté
justement…

Exposición permanente - Blackbeard' y Queen Anne's Revenge en el Museo de Carolina del Norte - Beaufort North Carolina - USA
The largest exhibit ever of artifacts from what's believed to be the remains of Blackbeard's flagship is opening at the North
Carolina Maritime Museum, with bells, cannon, lead shot and part of the hull among the items on display.
There won't, however, be any pirate treasure, says David Moore, the museum's nautical archaeologist. That's because the
Queen Anne's Revenge didn't wreck, but ran aground, giving the crew time to remove most of the valuables.

A Confederate flag with links to President Abraham Lincoln and the first Union officer killed in the Civil War will be the
centerpiece of an exhibit featuring New York's large collection of banners from the conflict, state officials said Thursday.
The 14-foot-by-24-foot flag Col. Elmer Ellsworth was carrying after removing it from the roof of the Marshall House in
Alexandria, Va. on May 24, 1861, will be part of an eight-flag exhibit opening July 12 in the "War Room" on the second
floor of the state Capitol. It's believed to be the first time the banner will be on public display since the war, according to
Christopher Morton, assistant curator at the New York State Military Museum.

Black Seaman's 1861 Heroics Recalled in New Film by New York-Based Documentary Producers - USA
The Union's first black hero of the Civil War wasn't one of the African-American soldiers of the 54th Massachusetts Infantry
Regiment, famously depicted in the 1989 film "Glory," but rather a merchant ship's cook who took up arms to prevent
being sold into slavery after a Confederate raider captured his vessel.
At least that's the reckoning of some historians and a pair of upstate New York-based documentary producers who have
included William Tillman's story in their new film on the short-but-prolific wartime record of the brig Jefferson Davis, a
Southern privateer that seized several Union ships in the opening months of the war.

Berlin's Bunkers - Berlin - Germany
When one mentions the architecture of Germany during World War Two, the first ideas that come to mind are not the
possibilities for new growth in the 21st century. But that is exactly what the Nazi bunkers that were built provide for us
today. In Berlin, these bunkers are a monolithic and often oppressive reminder of the past, but are also ripe for intelligent
thought about what they can be used for in the future.

Civil War Bullets Found in Gettysburg Tree - Gettysburg - Pennsylvania - USA
With Civil War commemorations planned throughout the nation for the next four years,
employees at Gettysburg National Military Park just got a reminder that the past is still with us.
Park maintenance employees were cutting through a fallen oak tree on Culp's Hill when the
chain saw hit bullets.
The discovery was made on August 4, 2011, as maintenance employees cut a fallen oak tree
that was resting on a boulder next to the Joshua Palmer marker on the east slope of Culp's Hill
summit. Two sections of the tree trunk where the bullets were discovered have been moved to
the park's museum collections storage facility. As a relic of the Battle of Gettysburg, the tree sections with bullets will be
treated to remove insects and mold and then added to the museum collections at Gettysburg National Military Park.

Bank of China Tower / I.M. Pei - 1985-1990 - Hong-Kong - China
When commissioned to design the Bank of China Tower on an intricate inland site, I.M. Pei was requested to create an
unavoidably tall unique headquarters in a typhoon-prone region that would represent the aspirations of the Chinese people
yet also symbolize good will toward the British Colony. The solution assimilates architecture and engineering
simultaneously, involving an asymmetrical tower that informs both skyline and street. The Bank of China Tower stands 70
stories tall, reaching a height of 1,209 feet. At the time of its opening in May 1990, it was the tallest building in Asia and
still remains one of the tallest in Hong Kong.

A raíz de las dislocaciones de las plataformas antárticas, los glaciares aguas arriba se reducen rápidamente y
para mucho tiempo
Los desmantelamientos de plataformas de la península antártica observados desde hace algunas décadas conducen a una
aceleración de la escorrentía hacia el océano de los glaciares situados aguas arriba, aceleración que repercute sobre la
pérdida de masa del manto glaciar y sobre el aumento del nivel marino. Un reciente estudio, realizado por tres
investigadores de la NASA (1), el LEGOS (2) y el NSIDC (3) y refiriéndose a la región del norte de la península, pone de
manifiesto que esta aceleración se acompaña de una disminución importante y prolongada de los glaciares. Los
investigadores pudieron estimar con precisión esta disminución en el tiempo de los distintos glaciares así como la subida
del nivel de los mares a la que esta región contribuyó. Este estudio se publica en el Journal of Glaciology.

Jinnah. Sited in the center of Karachi, Pakistan on a natural plateau, this marble structure was designed by the Indian
architect Yahya Merchant and was completed in 1970.
The mausoleum serves as the final resting place for Jinnah as well as Liaqat Ali Khan, (the first Prime Minister of Pakistan),
Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah (Jinnah’s sister), Abdur Rab Nishtar and Nurul Amin. Upon entrance through one of the four
pointed arches entering into the mausoleum, visitors enter into a grand octagonal space with a ceremonial sarcophagus in
its center (the actual tomb, expectedly, is in a subterranean chamber directly beneath the ceremonial sarcophagus). In
addition to its functional purpose as a mausoleum, Mazar-e-Quaid also serves as host to a variety of governmental and
military ceremonies.

AD Classics: De La Warr Pavilion - Erich Mendelsohn and Serge Chermayeff - 1935 Sussex - England
The persistence of design in the midst of even the severest persecution is one of the most
remarkable aspects of classic mid-century European Architecture. Even under forceful Nazi
discrimination during their rise to power between world wars, Erich Mendelsohn was able to
design the De La Warr Pavilion with Serge Chermayeff during his exodus to Britain before
both ultimately fled to the United States.

AD Classics: Villa La Roche - Le Corbusier - 1923-1925 - Paris - France
Designed 1923-1925 as a residence for Swiss banker Raoul La Roche, Villa Roche is the
quintessence of Le Corbusier’s modern approach to housing. The Villa acted as an exhibition
space for Mr. Roche’s collection of avant-garde artwork, and is a pure assemblage of spatial
volumes that interlocks the dual programs of domicile and gallery.
The promenade through Villa Roche plays a significant role in linking these two programs into
one; its hierarchy is a theme inspired by Corbusier‘s visit to the Acropolis. The Villa was
imagined as a “spatial experience” and consists of a specifically deliberate path which guides
the inhabitant and unveils the artwork as an itinerary through history.

Restoring a Classic: Richard Meier's Douglas House - 1973 - Harbor Springs Michigan - USA
Referred to as one of Meier’s best works, the Douglas House hovers over the shores of Lake
Michigan placed upon a steep slope over the water almost as if it is floating amongst the trees.
The Douglas House was designed for clients Jim and Jean Douglas and was completed in 1973
after a three year construction period (1971-1973). Meier furnished the home with furniture
designed by Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and himself, and it needed no ornamentation
other than the nature it was designed around.
As is typical of Meier buildings, the house is completely white made with reinforced concrete and glass except for two steel
pipes that extend from the chimney up to the roof, framing views at the entry level. Taking the natural surroundings into
consideration during the construction, the house was positioned to remove as few trees as possible.

AD Classics: Florey Building - James Stirling - 1971 - Oxford - United Kingdom
The Queen’s College Florey building is the third and last building of “The Red Trilogy” (the
Leicester Engineering Faculty building and the Cambridge History Faculty building being the
first two) designed by James Stirling, solidifying him as an irreplaceable facet in modern
Architecture.
The Florey building was named after provost and 1945 Nobel Laureate Lord Howard Florey, who
sat on the committee in charge of choosing an architect for the project. Although Stirling was
not the most popular choice for lead architect on the project, Florey was an advocate of his,
and Stirling was ultimately agreed upon because of the promise and potential held in his reputation at that time to deliver
an iconic, modern building to boost the college’s reputation and enrollment.

AD Classics: The Pagoda - Miguel Fisac - 1965-1970 - Madrid - Spain
Laboratorios Jorba is commonly referred to as the Pagoda because its rotating floors create a shape
reminiscent of tiered eaves found in traditional pagodas. Built by Spanish architect Miguel Fisac, the
tower stood on the outskirts of Madrid between 1968 and 1999. The Pagoda was a strong example of
Fisac’s playfulness and skill as an architect, and a master of concrete.
Miguel Fisac is recognized as the leader of modern architecture in Spain in the second half of the 20th
century. His work spans six decades, and includes the construction of over 300 works in that time.
Fisac is also credited with projects in many other design fields such as industrial design, furniture
design, urban planning, and painting, but is most well known for his innovative buildings and his fascination with concrete.

AD Classics: St. Mark's Church - Sigurd Lewerentz - 1956-1960 - Bjorkhagen Stockholm - Sweden
After over a decade of absence from architecture, Sigurd Lewerentz reappeared with the
creation of St. Mark’s Church in Björkhagen, Stockholm. His winning design for the church
brought him back to the art of building, and his apt control of materiality brought the St.
Mark’s Church international attention.
Lewerentz received the commission for St. Mark’s Church through a competition. He was
invited, along with four other architects, to propose ideas for the new church. Lewerentz
submitted multiple ideas and was ultimately chosen as the designer for the new church in 1956.

AD Classics: Riola Parish Church - Alvar Aalto - 1978 Grizzana - Italy Designed by Finnish architect, Alvar Aalto, Riola Parrish
Church is a stunning concrete form which mimics and
modulates with the contours of its Italian landscape. The
magnificent baptistery, completed in 1978, is located eight
kilometers south of Bologna in the small town of Riola. Aalto’s
evocative modernist architecture captures the spirit of this
mountain setting; it is a spiritual structure which, inside and out, unassumingly expresses sanctity of faith and place.

Amsterdam Orphanage / Aldo van Eyck - 1955-1960 - Amsterdam - The Netherlands
Dutch Architect Aldo van Eyck built the Amsterdam Orphanage in 1960. His design focused on a balance of forces to create
both a home and small city on the outskirts of Amsterdam.As a member of CIAM and then a founding member of Team 10,
van Eyck held strong opinions on post-war architecture. The Amsterdam Orphanage was van Eyck’s opportunity to put his
opinions in practice through his first large scale built project. Van Eyck criticized early post-war architecture as lacking a
human element. In the Amsterdam Orphanage he sought to design a modern building with a new urban vision from those
of his CIAM predecessors

AD Classics: Royal Hotel - Arkady Mordvinov - 1949-1953 - Moscow - The Russian
Federation
Originally completed in 1953 as the Hotel Ukraina, the Royal Hotel was designed by Arkady
Mordvinov and Vyacheslav Oltarzhevsky and stands as one of the “Seven Sisters” of Moscow
(Mordvinov was acting as the Chairman of the Committee of Construction and Architecture
at the time). This five-star hotel complex was the tallest hotel in the world at its completion
at 34 stories (650ft) and is sited on the banks of the Moskva River. This unique site required
considerable structural innovation during early construction, which will be discussed later in
the feature.
The Seven Sisters are skyscrapers built in the Stalin-era — the neoclassical Royal Hotel is one of the seven, accompanied
by the Kotelnicheskaya Embankment Apartments, the Kudrinskaya Square Building, the Hotel Leningradskaya, the Ministry
of Foreign Affairs, the main building of the Moscow State University, and the Red Gates Administrative Building. A massive
complex by any standards at almost one million square feet of floor area, the hotel boasts an array of lodging and
entertainment offerings including over five hundred hotel rooms, thirty-eight extended stay apartments, five restaurants, a
400-person conference center, a 1000-person banquet hall, spa, and a fleet of river yachts.

National Park of Mali - Kere Architecture - 2010 - Bamako - Mali
For the 50th anniversary of the Independence of Mali, the National Park in Bamako reopened
with new buildings such as an exclusive restaurant, a sport centre and several entrance
buildings.
The restaurant is situated on top of a rock formation and is nestling up against the different
height levels. The building is separated in four cubes which are representing the different
functions. The concern was always to integrate the spectacular view over the park and the
nearby lake into the design. Following the example of the restaurant, the sport centre is
meeting with the same architectonical language. It consists of three pavilions which are situated around an ellipsoidal
playground. The buildings are situated in such a way that they give maximal shadow to the playground and also the
interior recreation spaces. Also here the relationships between interior and exterior spaces played a major role in the
design.

Les causes de la fonte des glaciers tropicaux enfin identifiées
Les causes de la fonte des glaciers tropicaux sur les 10 000 dernières années sont enfin dévoilées par
une équipe de chercheurs français(1) du CNRS, du CEA, de l'IRD, de l'Université Joseph Fourrier et
un chercheur américain de l'Université d'Albany. Ils ont montré que le recul du glacier Telata en
Bolivie sur cette période est avant tout lié à une hausse de température atmosphérique de 3°C et au
réchauffement de l'océan Pacifique tropical en réponse à une augmentation de l'insolation(2). Les
travaux ont été publiés le 09 juin 2011 sur le site de la revue Nature.

Do blue-ice moraines in the Heritage Range show the West Antarctic ice sheet survived the last interglacial?
By Christopher J. Fogwilla, Andrew S. Heinb, Michael J. Bentleyc & David E. Sugdenb
http://universityandheritage.net/esp/noticias/newsletter_71/24_2011.html (1 de 2) [26/09/2011 15:54:14]

We present a hypothesis that best explains cosmogenic isotope data on blue-ice moraines in the Heritage Range, West
Antarctica. The age of the moraines implies that they, and the related ice-sheet surface with which they are associated,
have persisted on the flanks of nunataks throughout at least the last interglacial/glacial cycle. The implication is that
although the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) may have fluctuated in thickness during glacial cycles, the central dome has
remained intact for at least 200 kyr and possibly even for 400 kyr. Such a finding, if substantiated, would contribute to our
understanding of the sensitivity of the WAIS to climate change. Further it would be a powerful geomorphic constraint on
models of the past behaviour of the ice sheet during glacial cycles and thus those predicting the future of the ice sheet in a
warming world.

Metropolitan Museum and Egyptian Government Announce Initiative to Recognize
Egypt's Title to 19 Objects Originally from Tutankhamun's Tomb
Thomas P. Campbell, Director of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and Zahi
Hawass, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities of Egypt, announced jointly
today that, effective immediately, the Museum will acknowledge Egypt's title to 19 ancient
Egyptian objects in its collection since early in the 20th century. All of these small-scale
objects, which range from study samples to a three-quarter-inch-high bronze dog and a
sphinx bracelet-element, can be attributed with certainty to Tutankhamun's tomb, which was
discovered by Howard Carter in 1922 in the Valley of the Kings. The Museum initiated this formal acknowledgment after
renewed, in-depth research by two of its curators substantiated the history of the objects.

have flocked to the new Museum with an average of 8,300 people a day through the doors. The Museum which is free
entry opened on 19 July and tells the story of the city and its people. Museum bosses had predicted 78,000 visitors in the
first month of opening, but the response from the public has been three times that.
Janet Dugdale, Director of the Museum of Liverpool said: ”The visitor figures are staggering. We are thrilled with the

It is one of several Dutch museums under pressure to raise money from the public purse, and ideas being explored have
ranged from "adopting" star exhibits to opening a hotel on the premises.
"We are going to sell the entire Africa collection and the Americas collection, and will only keep the top pieces in the rest of

Friday morning, 10 June 2011, after a brave battle against cancer.

fortune to know him.
Professor Mordechai Omer served since January 1995 as the Director and Chief Curator of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. He
simultaneously served as Professor of Art History at Tel Aviv University (a post he has held since 1986) and as the head of
the University’s Museum Studies Program.

HAIMA Archaeological Museum of Punta Umbria / ETB Architects - Punta Umbria - Spain
This proposal new Archaeological Center of Punta Umbria, Spain is designed by ETB Architects. It is conceived of as a
simple and light architecture in the form of an Arab tent that is open to the surrounding landscape and to all society.
The site of the archeological museum is set in an important area of the city, which contains the ancient Roman remains as
well as the beautiful landscape of the “Ria.” These two elements contribute to the design of the building which is that of a
light pavilion that is lifted at points to reveal its precious contents. The tent almost doesn’t touch the ground which allows it
to be protective for its contents but inclusive to the public space surrounding it.

Exposición Permanente - Banderas de la Guerra Civil - Museo Militar del Estado de Nueva York - Saratoga
Springs - Nueva York - USA.
A Confederate flag with links to President Abraham Lincoln and the first Union officer killed in the Civil War will be the
centerpiece of an exhibit featuring New York's large collection of banners from the conflict, state officials said Thursday.
The 14-foot-by-24-foot flag Col. Elmer Ellsworth was carrying after removing it from the roof of the Marshall House in
Alexandria, Va. on May 24, 1861, will be part of an eight-flag exhibit opening July 12 in the "War Room" on the second
floor of the state Capitol. It's believed to be the first time the banner will be on public display since the war, according to
Christopher Morton, assistant curator at the New York State Military Museum.

The largest exhibit ever of artifacts from what's believed to be the remains of Blackbeard's flagship is opening at the North
Carolina Maritime Museum, with bells, cannon, lead shot and part of the hull among the items on display.
There won't, however, be any pirate treasure, says David Moore, the museum's nautical archaeologist. That's because the
Queen Anne's Revenge didn't wreck, but ran aground, giving the crew time to remove most of the valuables.

“It is wonderful to see that the new museum has captured everyone’s imagination,” said Zaha Hadid. “Such passion for
innovation and discovery from all members of the community is very exciting.”

Fossils of Earth's Oldest Trees Donated to New York State Museum - Albany - New York State - USA
Fossils of the Earth’s oldest trees have been donated to the New York State Museum after workers uncovered them during
a project to reconstruct the Gilboa Dam in Schoharie County.
Engineers for the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) discovered 35 Gilboa stump specimens in
the same location where similar Gilboa stumps were uncovered in 1920 when the dam was constructed. Other smaller
discoveries were made in the 1850s and in 1869. Twelve new stumps will be added to what is now the world’s largest
collection of Gilboa stumps at the State Museum. The stumps are widely cited as evidence of the world’s oldest forest.

COMPETITIONS - Serlachius Museum Gösta Extension Competition Proposal / XML - Mänttä - Finland
This proposal for the Serlachius Museum Extension in Mänttä, Finland was submitted by XML. The omnipresent landscape
provoked the architects to develop a scheme that became a median between the external world of nature and the internal
world of art.
The required program has been distributed along a continuous route that connects different programmatic clusters such as
galleries, storage, restaurant and office. The circulation between these clusters is bent into a circle allowing for two
experiential conditions: on the inside of the circle a series of enclosed exhibition spaces allows visitors to focus on the
experience of art whereas on the outside of the circle the continuous route that connects the programmatic clusters allows
for alternating these intimate experiences with views on the surrounding nature.

Clyfford Still Museum / Allied Works Architecture - Denver - Colorado - USA
The primary purpose of this building is to hold the work of Clyfford Still, to make room for the voice of a single artist. As a
museum it is a particular and intimate experience. Yet the site for the museum resides in a monumental context; at the
intersection of prairie and mountains, in the Civic Center, a cultural district inhabited by buildings of grand collective and
cultural narrative. All set against an urban neighborhood of parking lots, historic housing and new condominiums.

COMPETITIONS - New Mining Museum / HULTMANMAGNUSSON - Jøssingfjord - Norway
Young Swedish architects, HULTMANMAGNUSSON, won the competition to design a new mining museum in Jøssingfjord,
Norway, a city famous for its long history of mining and excavation of Titanium powder, used for white color pigment.
Located in the valley of the beautiful fjord, the 2000 m2 museum will exhibit the history, geology and technology of the
area, together with temporary exhibitions. Their proposal was called Varde, meaning a manmade pile of stones common in
this area of Norway. By using natures own material and arranging it a new shape, an important place is marked in the
landscape.
The new building, called Jøssingfjordsenteret, is attached to an existing power station in one end making it a part of the
exhibition. The building stretches out 110 meters towards the ocean, finishing with a panorama view café.

Murals to be Cleaned for the First Time in a Quarter of a Century - Scottish National Portrait Gallery Edinburgh - United Kingdom
A set of stunning murals, which decorates the entrance hall of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh, is to be
cleaned for the first time in a quarter of a century, as part of a major conservation project funded byWREN, a not for profit
business that awards grants to community projects from funds donated by Waste Recycling Group (WRG) to the Landfill
Communities Fund.
The Scottish National Portrait Gallery opened in 1889, as the world’s first purpose-built portrait gallery. The decorative
scheme created by William Hole in the late 1890s for the Gallery’s magnificent entrance hall, is one of the building’s most
striking features. It comprises a dazzling, painted procession of famous Scots (including David Livingstone, James Watt,
Robert Burns, Adam Smith, David Hume, the Stuart monarchs, Robert the Bruce and Saint Ninian); a series of large-scale
murals, depicting scenes from Scottish history; and a beautifully detailed mapping of the night sky, which adorns the
ceiling.

Giant statues of Soviet dictators Vladimir Lenin and Josef Stalin. Paintings of enthusiastic socialist laborers. A huge red star
that graced Communist Party headquarters. As Europe marks the 20th anniversary of the Soviet collapse, this nation that's
still shaking off its troubled communist legacy is opening a museum dedicated to the totalitarian past.
A debate's raging on whether the museum romanticizes the Soviet era or teaches new generations about its horrors. Other
former communist countries like the Czech Republic and Hungary have long had similar museums; the fact it's taken
Bulgaria this long to open one is a sign of its fraught transition to democracy.

University of Sydney Exhibition Offers Clues on Mysterious Pre-Roman Civilisation Sydney - Australia
The Etruscans – based in what is now known as Tuscany – were the most powerful
Mediterranean people in the 6th century BC before being conquered by the Romans and
incorporated into the Roman Republic. Their empire was built on mineral wealth, enabling
the development of elaborate cities and a powerful oligarchy which greatly influenced the
Roman Empire.
While the Etruscans’ early dominance is undisputed, little is known about who they were and
where they came from. There language is like no other spoken then, or since, in Europe. No Etruscan literature or major
buildings survive, and much Etruscan art – mostly made from stone, wood and terracotta - was summarily destroyed by
the Romans.

La Dame à l’hermine revient en Allemagne
Le Ministère de la Culture polonais avait accepté la demande de prêt de La Dame à l’hermine de Léonard de Vinci en avril
dernier. Le Portrait de Cecilia Gallerani, peint en 1490, a commencé son voyage, son premier arrêt se situant Allemagne et
plus précisément à Berlin qui met en vedette les chefs-d’œuvre de la peinture de portrait de la Renaissance.
La Dame à l’hermine avait été volée par les nazis pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale et c’est la première fois que l’œuvre
retourne en Allemagne depuis sa restitution à la Pologne. L’œuvre est peinte sur une planche de châtaignier et appartient à
la famille Czartoryski depuis le début du XIXe siècle. Elle sera visible au Bode Museum de Berlin qui clôturera son
exposition « Visages de la Renaissance — chefs-d’œuvre de l’art du portrait italien » le 20 novembre sans l’oeuvre de
Léonard de Vinci, car son œuvre est attendue à Londres le 9 novembre.

In a special ceremony today, the National Museum of American History acquired objects
from the Sony Pictures Television drama series for FX, Rescue Me. The donation, presented
by Rescue Me co-creators Denis Leary (star of the series) and Peter Tolan, includes Leary’s
firefighter costume, firefighter helmets from the cast, photographs from the show’s
firehouse set and firefighting tools, including an axe, Halligan tools and a carbon monoxide
detector. The objects will join the museum’s popular culture history collections in the
Division of Culture and the Arts.
Rescue Me premiered in July 2004 and revolves around the lives of the men in a New York City firehouse—the crew of 62

Cross-Shaped Steel Beam Found Amid Trade Center Wreckage Moved to Permanent Home - New York City New York State - USA
A cross-shaped steel beam found amid the wreckage in the days following the Sept. 11 terrorist attack was a symbol of
hope for many working on rescue and recovery there, so much so that the construction worker who discovered it believes
he stumbled on to a miracle.
"I saw Calvary in the midst of all the wreckage, the disaster," Frank Silecchia recalled Saturday. "It was a sign ... that God
didn't desert us."

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Homeland Security
Investigations (HSI) help Egyptian law enforcement agencies counter antiquities
trafficking
Egyptian archaeological sites, storerooms and other locations are under serious threats of
pillage, theft and illicit trafficking. That's why U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) joined forces with the U.S. Embassy to Egypt to present
a four day workshop titled "Countering Antiquities Trafficking at Egypt's Ports and Borders."
The workshop was designed to help improve Egypt's capacity to prevent the illegal export of
cultural property through more effective implementation of export controls and law enforcement resources. The conference
also aimed to increase dialogue and cooperation between Egyptian law enforcement agencies and provide a basis for a
continued working relationship between ICE's attaché office in Cairo and Egyptian law enforcement.

A total of 297 Oegyujanggak (the Ganghwa Island branch of Gyujanggak, the royal library of the Joseon

France with the completion of the fourth delivery on Friday, May 27. Thus, the uigwe books of the Joseon
Dynasty returned to Korea after 145 years. Most of them are uigwe books for ‘royal inspection’, meaning
that they were specially produced to be examined by the king. Thirty out of the 297 books are one-of-akind, so they have very high cultural and academic value.

Smithsonian's National Postal Museum Receives Donation for the William H. Gross Stamp Gallery - Washington
DC - USA
George Kramer, a well-known philatelist, has donated $100,000 to support the National Postal Museum’s expansion to
create the William H. Gross Stamp Gallery (www.postalmuseum.si.edu/StampGallery). The Smithsonian and the U.S.
Postal Service recently signed a lease agreement for the additional space to build the gallery. This new space will be added
to the museum’s existing 65,000 square feet and is scheduled to open in the next couple of years.
In addition, Kramer is donating for display in the new gallery, a piece of mail that was mailed to John Hancock from New
York via the Constitutional Post, a mail system created by American revolutionary leaders to compete with the British post
office. It was postmarked July 4, 1776, the date that the Second Continental Congress, meeting at the Pennsylvania State
House in Philadelphia, approved the Declaration of Independence. No postage was charged because Hancock was president
of the Congress.

Serlachius Museum Gösta Extension Competition Proposal / MACA Estudio - Mäntäa - Finland
Young architecture office, MACA Estudio, based in Madrid, Spain, shared with us their proposal for the Serlachius Museum
Gösta Extension design competition. Their proposal plans to solve all the functional requirements of a museum, making the
most of the circulations, the sustainability and integration of the building in its environment and at the same time creating
a recognizable icon, a representative building worthy of the importance of this museum located in Mäntäa, Finland.
The formal and constructive references in the design comes from the environment, native materials, the landscape, and
the scale of the existing buildings. The chosen site respects practically all the existing woodland, minimizing the number of
trees to be eliminated within the possibilities that allow the construction of a building on this scale and functional
complexity.

Museos, Museología y Patrimonio mueble
The Deutsches Bergbau-Museum, a German Mining Museum, lies in the heart of the Ruhr Area, in the city of Bochum. The
museum is one of the most important mining museums and one of the most popular museums in Germany. Currently, the
museum draws around 400,000 visitors annually to its 12,000 sqm of exhibition space.
The new building, a 1,795 sqm extension, is linked to the existing structure by bridges. The extension houses temporary
exhibits (and research presentations) and the existing permanent collection devoted to Saint Barbara, the most important
guardian saint of miners. The new building reflects a cross-section of a mine: a solid, dark, black cube with illuminated
passages and mine shafts. Coal inspired the rough, black surface of the facade. The color of the passageways ranges from
white to light orange and deep red. The building looks like it was extracted straight from a mine. A clearly marked route
from inside to outside avoids any dead ends.

Extending the Louvre / Carl Fredrik Svenstedt Architecte - Paris - France
In response to a public debate about rebuilding the historic wing of the Louvre in Paris, Carl Fredrik Svenstedt Architecte
shared with us their initiative to extend the Louvre. Destroyed by the French Republic at the end of the 19th century as a
symbol of royal and imperial power, this proposal aims to build a more democratic building better suited to the site and our
times.
The recent French debate surrounding the potential reconstruction of the Tuileries Palace demonstrates that the Louvre is
still a major symbolic and political issue. The historical Tuileries were burned down by the Commune in 1871 and
dismantled by the Republic many years later as the symbol of monarchical and imperial power. The project for the
extension of the Louvre positions itself in a historical continuum, with a firm conviction that it should mark the aspirations
of our time. The spatial representation of democracy is renewed with each inflexion of history.

Ägyptisches Museum in Berlin Lends Colossal Statue of Pharaoh to Metropolitan Museum of Art for Ten Years New York City - New York State - USA
A monumental ancient Egyptian statue of a seated pharaoh —probably Amenemhat II —will be lent to The Metropolitan
Museum of Art by Berlin’s renowned Ägyptisches Museum und Papyrussammlung, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin Preussischer Kulturbesitz for a period of ten years, beginning this month. The ten-foot-tall, nearly nine-ton, 4,000-year-old
sculpture entered the Berlin museum’s collection in 1837. Because of a construction project now underway —to renovate
the courtyard on Museumsinsel (Museum Island) where the artwork has most recently been displayed— the statue had to
be moved, thereby providing the opportunity for this long-term loan. The sculpture will go on view in the Metropolitan’s
Great Hall for approximately one year before it is moved into The Lila Acheson Wallace Galleries of Egyptian Art. The
Middle Kingdom sculpture is an outstanding example of ancient Egypt’s magnificent colossal statuary, of which very few
examples can be found in American museums.

ArchDaily Classics: Museum of Modern Art, Gunma / Arata Isozaki - Takasaki - Japan
Considered one of Arata Isozaki’s greatest masterpieces, the Museum of Modern Art, Gunma stands
as a testimony to Isozaki’s architectural ideology and represents a summary of his achievements.
The form is a conceptual statement about the museum as void and frame. Utilizing a 12-meter
cube as a metaphorical form to express a frame, Isozaki turned the museum into a stage and a
container for displaying and isolating artwork.
Isozaki’s use of a pure cube makes the building weightless and dematerializes the architecture. No
dimensions have hierarchy within the cube, and therefore stillness and repose is manifested within
the structure. The equality of every member deteriorates the notion that any forces are acting upon the cubic forms, and
the aluminum squares that mask the façade hide the structure to further allude to a weightless figure.

The Rijksmuseum Vincent van Gogh was commissioned in 1963, but not

spearhead the project, and provided the initial design. Tragically, however,
Rietveld died a year after the project began. Rietveld’s colleague on the project,
J. van Dillen, took over the commission as a result, sticking closely to Rietveld’s
previous sketches. When van Dillen died in 1966, the project was finally left to
be finished with a slightly adjusted design by J. van Tricht.

AD Classics: Everson Museum - I.M. Pei - 1968 - Syracuse - New York - USA
With a collection focused largely on American art and ceramics, the Everson Museum exists
as a structure that is more than just a vault for art. Designed in 1968 by I.M. Pei, the
structure sought to simultaneously challenge the traditional museum typology through its
innovative form while also existing as an object of modern art in its own right. Pei conceived
the Everson as an open structure with access to its interior from all of its exposed sides.
The building is primarily comprised of four opaque concrete volumes that surround an open
atrium that visitors move through to access the galleries. A library/lounge and an
auditorium exist as separate volumes that are accessed through the atrium. Each volume contains galleries of differing size
and height that when viewed from outside gives added hierarchy to the overall assemblage of forms that makeup the
museum. A cantilevered second story adds further differentiation to the building from the surrounding landscape.

ABC Museum, Illustration and Design Center / Aranguren & Gallegos Architects - Madrid Spain
The new ABC Center of Drawing and Illustration, comes with a willingness to be an artistic
international reference and a cultural symbol of Madrid. The installation in the old factory building in
Amaniel Street has to be a suitable intervention in a historic building without sacrificing the
character of expressing a contemporary center with a diverse range of cultural and artistic
institutions.

The existing building has a possible dual access from two streets connecting them in an interior
court. Before the intervention, one of the entrances was through a longitudinal height body that closed the courtyard. From
this front we propose the principal access to the new Center ABC. To achieve this, the mentioned longitudinal body is
restructured as a great “girder” of translucent glass that operates as a lintel towards the interior court. Located inside is
the cafeteria, and under it, through a glass floor on which you enter the courtyard, the basement of the new center catche
the light.

TATE BLOG - Should museums be using social media more creatively? - Tate Museum - United Kingdom
It’s one thing to manage your profiles on the proliferating social networking and sharing sites as an individual, but as an
institution it’s quite another. So, we ask ourselves this question at Tate social media HQ all the time. We’d like to know
how you see it.
When you’re on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube Flickr, Foursquare, Google+ (or whatever’s new this month!), as yourself, you
you tend to know what you’re there for. When you’re there representing an institution, however, it’s much harder to define
exactly why you’re there – and what your fans or followers want from you being there! Even when you ask, of course,
different people want different things at different times…

Galerie Remmert und Barth Finds Art by Expressionist Otto Dix - Dusseldorf - North Rhine-Westphalia Germany
A gallery has discovered four paintings by Otto Dix, the German expressionist whose art chronicled the horrors of World
War One, the depravity of the Weimar Republic and was labeled "degenerate" by Adolf Hitler.
Famous for works critical of the darker side of German society in the 1920s, Dix's paintings were discovered among the
belongings of his wife, gallery owner Herbert Remmert told Reuters Wednesday.
The paintings were found in a portfolio untouched for decades on an estate in Bavaria owned by the ancestors of a
Duesseldorf doctor and art collector who remained close to Dix even after his wife left him for the artist.

Kunstmuseum Receives a Place of Contemplation: Japan Garden - KunstmuseumWolfsburg - Lower Saxony - Germany
When he assumed his new post in January 2006, Dr. Markus Brüderlin already pointed to a
future project that lay close to his heart: to turn the unused sculpture court planned by Peter
Schweger, the architect of the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg, into a Zen garden. Schweger's idea
of a sculpture court was not followed up on after the museum's opening in 1994. The
courtyard lay idle and was used for the most diverse purposes.

But, as Hungary requested, other heirs of Baron Mor Lipot Herzog with older lawsuits over the art, cannot proceed, the U.

The Royal Collection's First Book for Children: Does The Queen Wear Her Crown in Bed?
By Marion McAuley, illustrations by Katy Sleight
Royal Collection Publications, July 2011
ISBN 978-1-905686-41-1
Does The Queen wear her crown in bed and who walks the corgis when she’s busy? Those are the sort of
details children really want to know about life at Buckingham Palace.
Inspired by the many questions that children have asked her, Marion McAuley, a former Head of
Education at the Royal Collection, decided to provide the answers in the Royal Household’s first children’s
book about The Queen’s London home.
In this 32-page book, illustrated by Katy Sleight, a footman guides two children around the Palace, showing them some of
its rooms and explaining The Queen’s most important duties – and what you should do if you meet her.

History Behind Monet's Water Lilies Triptych: Agapanthus - Saint Louis Art Museum - Missouri - USA The Saint Louis Art Museum announced the publication of Monet’s Water Lilies: The Agapanthus Triptych to accompany the
featured exhibition, Monet’s Water Lilies, which opens October 2, 2011. The fascinating and little-known history behind the
triptych, recognized as one of Monet’s most impressive accomplishments, is explored in this catalogue.
French artist Claude Monet is one of the most significant and best-known Impressionists, and his Water Lily paintings—
approximately 250 in the entire series —represent the culminating achievement of his career. The exhibition Monet’s Water
Lilies reunites the Agapanthus triptych for the first time in more than 30 years.

History's Shadow: New Book Examines Art and Artifacts through Museum
Conservation X-Rays
History’s Shadow, a new photography book by artist David Maisel (Nazraeli Press, $75,
hardcover, 72 pages, ISBN 978-1-59005-278-4), examines art and artifacts through
museum conservation x-rays. Like spectral transmissions conveying messages across time,
the images in History’s Shadow make the invisible visible – expressing the shape-shifting
nature of time itself and the continuous presence of the past contained within us. The book
will be published October 1, 2011 and includes an essay by David Maisel and a short story
by Jonathan Lethem.

MUSEUM International N°248: Haiti, Cultural Heritage and Reconstruction
This issue of MUSEUM International focuses on Haiti's heritage a year on from the earthquake. Leaving
aside the tragedy itself, the articles aim to underline the scientific and administrative structures put in
place in the decades prior to the earthquake for the preservation of Haiti's cultural heritage. It also
attempts to highlight the positive effects of such structures in strengthening the nation and its current
reconstruction.
In its own way, this issue contributes to the cultural dimension of the Action Plan for the National Recovery
and Development of Haiti. The first chapter contains an outline of institutional achievements by Haitian
leaders. It provides a framework for restoring the broken ties between contemporary Haitian society and its history. The
challenge of development based on cultural reconstruction is expressed in the second chapter through the voices of
international players and researchers.
This issue attests to the potential on which Haiti and its political and professional leaders can draw to achieve the challenge

ahead. As the painful memories of the tragedy fade, the international community must now maintain its determination to
join in their endeavor and take up the challenge of sustainable solidarity with Haiti.

Technical Vocabulary for Cultural Property Conservation: English-Arabic
By Fatma Marii and Usam Ghaidan
©UNESCO, 2011
UNESCO Iraq Office – Culture Unit
After reviewing the reports presented to NRICP and UNESCO by the Iraqi experts at the conclusion of their
respective training courses, they were found to be so rich and interesting that UNESCO proposed to keep a
record of this experience so that they could be shared with other museums in Iraq. This publication, The
English-Arabic Technical Vocabulary for Museum Conservation, is the fruit of that effort; all the terms
found within are taken from the above-mentioned reports, they will stand over time as an unexpected but valued result of
this initiative.

Trésors insolites des musées de France (Visite par l'insolite des collections françaises)
Par Jean-Jacques Breton et Dominique Williatte
Publisher: Flammarion (6 April 2011)
ISBN : 978-2-08-124269-2
Ces trésors ont été choisis pour leur caractère inattendu lié à leur auteur, à leur sujet, à leurs secrets
ou à leur étrange destin. Dans le livre cohabitent ainsi Les Joueurs de cartes des frères Le Nain, qui
offrent une synthèse unique des leçons flamandes et du Caravage au XVIIe siècle, avec la palette de
Delacroix, qui dévoile les rapports de tons auxquels s’astreignait l’artiste avant de peindre. Ailleurs,
c’est un tableau de Degas, conservé à Pau, qui est dévoilé comme l’un des rares exemples d’une œuvre impressionniste
réalisée en Amérique.
La thématique des trésors insolites constitue un sujet fort intéressant, même si peu original. Il subsiste cependant un
regret face à un discours parfois recherché : pourquoi l’avoir doté d’une présentation académique ?

The RA Collection of Chinese Ceramics: A Collector's Vision
The most important new reference book on Chinese export porcelain to have been published for many years reveals for the
first time comprehensive details of what is probably the world’s best private collection of pieces intended primarily for the
European market. The RA Collection of Chinese Ceramics: A Collector’s Vision by Maria Antónia Pinto de Matos, a
distinguished academic and museum director, also contains much new research into the entire subject of Chinese export
porcelain. Published by Jorge Welsh Books, this magnificent limited edition three- volume boxed set is a work of art in its
own right.

Projet de décret relatif aux chartes des parc nationaux - France
La politique des parcs nationaux français a fait l’objet d’une réforme législative en 2006. La loi prévoit l’élaboration pour
chaque parc national d’un projet de territoire, périodiquement révisé, dénommé charte du parc national. La présente
consultation porte sur une modification du code de l’environnement qui a pour objet de préciser d’une part, que les chartes
des parcs nationaux font l’objet d’une évaluation environnementale et d’autre part, que la formation d’autorité
environnementale du Conseil général de l’environnement et du développement durable est chargée de donner un avis sur
le rapport environnemental sur chacune de ces chartes. La consultation est ouverte jusqu’au 12 juillet 2011 à l’adresse :

Suite à la parution de la version 3 de la charte du parc national des Calanques et avant l'Assemblée générale du
Groupement d'intérêt public (GIP) Calanques du 27 juin 2011, FNE et sa fédération régionale URVN, l'UDVN 13, la LPO et
la Ligue ROC estiment que certains aspects de ce projet demeurent encore très insatisfaisants, voici le principaux :
S'inquiétant d'un cœur de parc en dentelle, reflétant les conflits d'intérêts, les associations environnementales demandent
notamment que l'archipel du Frioul, qui constitue une composante importante du caractère du parc, soit inclus, non pas
dans l'aire optimale d'adhésion, mais dans le cœur terrestre et marin du parc afin de protéger au mieux sa richesse
faunistique et floristique. C'est un non-sens de reconnaître ce territoire comme étant exceptionnel, et de ne pas l'intégrer
en cœur de parc !

Météo: des satellites pour mieux comprendre la pluie au Sahel
Mieux comprendre pourquoi et où la pluie tombe au Sahel afin d'aider les paysans
d'Afrique de l'Ouest à assurer leur subsistance: c'est dans ce but que des scientifiques
ont analysé par satellites les orages qui s'abattent sur cette région aride.
Sans surprise, ils ont confirmé qu'un sol déjà humide favorisait, par évaporation,
l'arrivée de la pluie. Mais leurs travaux, publiés dimanche dans la revue britannique
Nature Geoscience, montrent aussi que les orages n'éclatent pas nécessairement là où
on les attend.

NASA'S "Age of Aquarius" Dawns With Launch From California - USA
NASA's 'Age of Aquarius' dawned Friday with the launch of an
international satellite carrying the agency-built Aquarius instrument that will measure the
saltiness of Earth's oceans to advance our understanding of the global water cycle and
improve climate forecasts.
The Aquarius/SAC-D observatory rocketed into space from Vandenberg Air Force Base in
California atop a United Launch Alliance Delta II rocket at 7:20:13 a.m. PDT. Less than 57
minutes later, the observatory separated from the rocket's second stage and began
activation procedures, establishing communications with ground controllers and unfurling
its solar arrays.
Initial telemetry reports show the observatory is in excellent health. The SAC-D (Satélite de
Aplicaciones Científicas) observatory is a collaboration between NASA and Argentina's

Shouf Cedar forests lead Lebanon eco-tourism boom - Lebanon
Shouf, Lebanon (CNN) -- Lebanon's 2,000 hectares of cedar forest are a peaceful oasis for hikers, mountain bikers and
bird-watchers, a world away from the hustle and bustle of Beirut.
In the Shouf Cedar Reserve, the country's largest natural forest, villagers make a living selling home-made jam, honey,
pickled olives and wine to tourists.
The area was declared was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 2005. While sustainable tourism is booming, the
ancient forests are under threat from climate change.
Nizar Hani, manager of Shouf Cedar Reserve, said: "Right now we have a new challenge for the cedar forest in Lebanon,
which is the climate change.
"The expected threat to the cedar forest is (that) the natural regeneration will be affected, because the cedar seeds need
to be under snow for two months minimum."

Landscapes of Cohabitation / doxiadis+ - Antiparos - Greece
The Aegean islands are known for their great and dramatic beauty. Significantly, this beauty is the result of the interaction
of natural and human agents, both in its creation and in its perception and representation: the white chapel on top of a hill,
the traditional village overlooking the sunset, the golden wheat-fields overlooking the sea. These elements were not
constructed with any attempts or notion of the picturesque; however, they are the result of self-organizing systems of
structures and processes developed over millennia.

Future emissions from shipping and petroleum activities in the Arctic
G. P. Peters, T. B. Nilssen, L. Lindholt, M. S. Eide, S. Glomsrød, L. I. Eide, and J. S. Fuglestvedt
The Arctic sea-ice is retreating faster than predicted by climate models and could become ice free during summer this
century. The reduced sea-ice extent may effectively “unlock” the Arctic Ocean to increased human activities such as transit
shipping and expanded oil and gas production.
Travel time between Europe and the north Pacific Region can be reduced by up to 50% with low sea-ice levels and the use
of this route could increase substantially as the sea-ice retreats. Oil and gas activities already occur in the Arctic region and
given the large undiscovered petroleum resources increased activity could be expected with reduced sea-ice…

Le génome du kangourou enfin décrypté
Pour la première fois, des chercheurs sont parvenus à séquencer le génome du kangourou. Un travail
qui leur a permis entre autres, d'identifier les gènes responsables des fantastiques sauts de ces
marsupiaux, selon une étude publiée vendredi.
Marsupial emblématique de l'Australie, le kangourou a déjà fait l'objet de nombreuses études
scientifiques qui se sont intéressées à son comportement mais aussi à ses étonnantes capacités de
saut. Mais, jusqu'ici, aucune n'avait été consacrée à décrypter le génome de l'animal sauteur. C'est
désormais chose faite grâce à un consortium de scientifiques de cinq pays différents : Australie, ÉtatsUnis, Japon, Angleterre et Allemagne. Plus précisément, c'est en fait le génome du Macropus eugenii, petit kangourou
australien, que les chercheurs ont séquencé et détaillé dans la revue Genome biology.

North Mountain Visitor Center / John Douglas Architects - 2008 - PHOENIX - ARIZONA - USA
What was once merely a trail head parking lot, now serves as a gateway to the vast and rugged North Mountain Park. The
North Mountain visitor center by John Douglas Architects educates locals, tourists and youth, on the significance of the
mountain preserve and its Sonoran desert ecology. 20,000 visitors have toured the center over the past year and have
taken with them a new sense of understanding on the importance of open-space preservation in our bustling metropolis.
Prior to beginning design studies, specific research was conducted to ensure that the design of the facility would be
responsive to its desert environment. One of the key contributors to the design team’s understanding of the site was a
team of geologists from Arizona State University. Their explanation of the hidden forces that shape the terrain, led directly
to the form and materials of the Center.

International Concessions Management Workshop Co-organized by the NPS (National Parks Service - USA)
At the 2010 Convention on Biological Diversity, nations committed to set aside 17% of the globe's land as parks and other
protected areas. New parks and preserves, joining 120,000 that already exist, will be created to meet that target. How will
budget-constrained governments accomplish this task? This question and possible solutions provided the context for an
international workshop held at Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Yosemite National Park. The meeting was
sponsored by the National Park Service's Office of International Affairs and the Commercial Services Program, in
conjunction with Colorado State University's Center for Protected Area Management. Representatives from Asia, Africa,
Latin America, Australia, New Zealand and Europe joined U.S. and Canadian counterparts, including NPS staff, to discuss
the benefits and challenges of engaging the private sector in partnerships to help manage national parks and other
protected areas, including World Heritage Sites, which are the most significant places on the planet. The UNESCO World
Heritage Centre and IUCN's World Commission on Protected Areas were also represented at the meeting. For more

estudian.
Peter comenzó a tomar fotos para sus libros de niños y con el tiempo se interesó en los

estuvieron en el Ártico, les brindó la posibilidad de retratar a gente muy especial en un entorno mágico.

Observatório Nacional descobre indícios de um Rio Subterrâneo debaixo do Rio Amazonas - Brazil
Em agosto de 2011, os pesquisadores da Coordenação de Geofísica do Observatório Nacional – ON apresentaram um
trabalho no 12o Congresso Internacional da Sociedade Brasiliera de Geofísica, no Rio de Janeiro, apontando indícios da
existência de um rio subterrâneo debaixo do Rio Amazonas.
Esta fantástica descoberta faz parte de um trabalho de doutorado da aluna Elizabeth Tavares Pimentel, sob orientação do
pesquisador Valiya Hamza. O trabalho é baseado na análise de dados de temperaturas de 241 poços profundos perfurados
pela PETROBRAS, nas décadas de 1970 e 1980, na região Amazônica. A área de estudo abrange as bacias sedimentares de
Acre, Solimões, Amazonas, Marajó e Barreirinhas.
Os resultados obtidos permitiram identificação de movimentação das águas subterrâneas em profundidades de até 4000
metros nesta região. A metodologia utilizada baseia-se na identificação de sinais térmicos típicos de movimentos de fluidos
em meios porosos.

La délinquance environnementale sera aussi au menu des tribunaux correctionnels citoyens - France
Le Parlement a définitivement adopté, le 6 juillet dernier, le projet de loi sur la participation des citoyens au
fonctionnement de la justice pénale. Supprimées en première lecture par l'Assemblée nationale, les infractions
environnementales ont été réintroduites par la commission mixte paritaire, chargée de trouver un compromis sur le projet
de texte, dans le champ de compétence des "tribunaux correctionnels dans leur formation citoyenne".

The State of America's National Parks: A Response - USA
Last week, the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) released their report on The
State of America’s National Parks, calling for major improvements in the management of
natural, historic and cultural resources in advance of the 2016 centennial of the Park Service.
NPCA’s report, based on 10 years of research on 80 park units, finds that the Park Service lacks
the professional and financial capacity to care for the 27,000 historic structures, 4 million
archaeological sites, 123 million museum objects and archival documents in park units it is
responsible for protecting. Historic structures were found to be in fair to poor condition in the
parks studied. None were in excellent condition. In fact, $3 billion of the $10.5 billion deferred maintenance budget for
National Parks is needed for park historic structures. Additionally, overall funding and priority for the protection of cultural
resources is not on par with funding for the protection of natural resources even though two thirds of the parks were
created because of their historic and cultural significance.

Convention d’Aarhus : L'Union européenne et la France doivent accepter d'ouvrir les portes de la démocratie

Depuis hier, les Etats signataires de la Convention d’Aarhus sur l’information, la participation du public et l’accès à la

Commission économique des Nations Unies pour l’Europe (UNECE), appelée de ses vœux par France Nature Environnement
et les Amis de la terre France, est en négociation. Inquiétudes.
Une décision qui restreindrait l’accès de pays volontaires à la démocratie environnementale

The Ramsar Convention on Wetlands: 40 Years of Action - Planet Workshops
At lot has been achieved over the last 40 years. The signature of the Convention on Wetlands in Ramsar, Iran, in 1971 by
the representatives of 18 nations was the culmination of 9 years of hard work and careful diplomacy on the part of many
people devoted to the cause. Forty years have now passed and today the Convention numbers 160 signatory countries –
practically nine times the original number – and it is possible to observe the remarkable progress that has been achieved in
that time. The Convention has become the spearhead of global efforts for the conservation and sustainable use of wetlands
and their water resources, as well as for the conservation of the diversity of life that they support.

Brésil : un fleuve souterrain découvert sous l'Amazone
Des scientifiques brésiliens ont découvert un fleuve souterrain qui coule sous l'Amazone, à
4.000 mètres de profondeur, et comme lui, d'ouest en est, a annoncé l'Observatoire
national, un organisme lié au ministère des Sciences et des technologies, dans un
communiqué.
Le travail de la scientifique Elizabeth Pimentel s'est fondé sur l'analyse des températures de
241 puits forés par le géant pétrolier brésilien Petrobras en Amazonie, dans les bassins de
l'Acre, du Solimoes, de l'Amazonas, de Marajo et de Barreirinhas.

République islamique d'Iran: une catastrophe écologique menace le Lac

Un haut responsable iranien a dénoncé une politisation de la catastrophe écologique
menaçant le lac d'Oroumieh, dans le nord-ouest de l'Iran, après des manifestations de la
population locale dénonçant l'inaction du gouvernement.
Le lac d'Oroumieh, l'un des plus grands lacs salés du monde, a perdu la moitié de sa surface
au cours des 20 dernières années du fait de la multiplication des barrages sur les rivières qui
l'alimentent, et risque de disparaître à brève échéance si rien n'est fait pour le sauver.

EUROPARC News from the Parks & Benefits Project
Parks & Benefits wants to ensure the sustainable regional development in eight
large protected areas in six countries around the Baltic Sea. The project's main
instrument will be the transfer of the “European Charter For Sustainable
Tourism In Protected Areas to the Baltic Sea Region and its joint
implementation in National, Regional and Nature Parks and a Biosphere
Reserve.
Parks & Benefits will result in a network of certified Charter Parks around the
Baltic Sea, new nature tourism products and enlarged commitment of citizens and tourism entrepreneurs to the Charter
and their protected Parks. The workload is grouped into three major work packages.

National Park of Mali - Kere Architecture - 2010 - Bamako - Mali
For the 50th anniversary of the Independence of Mali, the National Park in Bamako reopened
with new buildings such as an exclusive restaurant, a sport centre and several entrance
buildings.
The restaurant is situated on top of a rock formation and is nestling up against the different
height levels. The building is separated in four cubes which are representing the different
functions. The concern was always to integrate the spectacular view over the park and the
nearby lake into the design. Following the example of the restaurant, the sport centre is
meeting with the same architectonical language. It consists of three pavilions which are situated around an ellipsoidal
playground. The buildings are situated in such a way that they give maximal shadow to the playground and also the
interior recreation spaces. Also here the relationships between interior and exterior spaces played a major role in the
design.

RUPUNUNI - GUYANA
by Graham Watkins, Pete Oxford, Renee Bish, Abbie Williams (Editor)
The northern Rupununi has intrigued explorers, travellers, historians, and scientists for centuries,
dating back to Sir Walter Ralegh s search for the mythical El Dorado. But for the past three decades
this extraordinary region, with its breathtaking landscape and astonishing wildlife, has been out of
the public eye. Rupununi Rediscovering a Lost World inspires WWF and other conservation agencies
to continue their work to protect the global environment. It also reminds us that we need to be ever
vigilant if we are to overcome the threats that confront humanity so that we can bequeath to our
children a lasting legacy.

Association Robin des Bois: Atlas des sites pollués aux PCB (polychlorobiphényles) - France
L’atlas confirme que les bassins de la Seine et du Rhône, les lacs alpins, le Rhin, la Moselle, la Somme et leurs affluents, de
même que le Nord/Pas-de-Calais et ses canaux recèlent des agrégats de sites PCB ; ils se recoupent souvent avec la
contamination des sédiments aquatiques et la contamination des poissons telles qu’elles sont relevées par le Ministère de
l’Ecologie. Il y a aussi une certaine analogie avec les pollutions par hydrocarbures cartographiées par Robin des Bois dans
l’Atlas des pollutions par hydrocarbures dans les eaux intérieures. Rappelons que dans ce document il était précisé que «
Les hydrocarbures (….) peuvent masquer des contaminants plus persistants comme des huiles de transformateurs
électriques ou des huiles de coupe industrielle ». Aucune région n’est épargnée.

The Green Belt of Europe: From Vision to Reality
Andrew Terry, Karin Ullrich and Uwe Riecken
Published by: IUCN, Gland, Switzerland and Cambridge, UK
ISBN-13: 978-2-8317-0945-1
The Iron Curtain, running from the Barents Sea to the Black Sea, divided Europe for almost 40 years and
no activity was allowed in this "forbidden" zone. When it fell in 1989, it left a strip of land that runs the
entire length of Europe and that has remained comparatively undisturbed – a green belt. The Green Belt
initiative aims to integrate this entire strip of land with its key habitats and ecological areas as part of an
international network of valuable ecosystems. This book provides background information on the initiative, reviews current
activities in a number of case studies and looks at how the initiative can fit into current and future global efforts to protect
European biodiversity.

European Environment Agency (EEA) - Report on Landscape Fragmentation in Europe Increasing fragmentation of landscape threatens European wildlife
Published by EEA (European Environment Agency)
ISBN: 978-92-9213-215-6
The report illustrates how roads, motorways, railways, intensive agriculture and urban developments are
breaking up landscapes, with potentially devastating consequences for flora and fauna across the
continent. The report concludes that, although the situation is critical, there are several proactive policies
that could provide more effective protection of remaining unfragmented areas: wildlife corridors could
successfully reverse the trend of fragmentation; planners should aim to upgrade old roads instead of building new roads,
and to "bundle" new infrastructure, for example by building bypasses close to settlements or constructing road and rail
routes next to each other; where the volume of traffic has fallen, roads should be reduced in size or dismantled
completely; and cumulative effects need to be considered more effectively, based on the precautionary principle, to avoid
repeating mistakes of the past.

Living Parks: 100 Years of National Parks in Europe
oekom verlag, München 2009
ISBN-13: 978-3-86581-187-5
Europe’s national Parks are part of the continents complex system of protected areas. The
reason for their creations, their purpose and history, their management, size and the species
that they protect may differ – Yet for the past 100 years they have been reservoirs of
biodiversity; sources of water, cultural and economic assets; and places of recreation and
spiritual replenishment. They all face similarchallenges in their management today but remain
the living repositories of Europe’s natural and cultural heritage for future generations.
This book was created by the EUroPArC federation to celebrate 100 Years of national Parks in Europe. it marks a centenary
of European national Parks since the first nine were established in 1909 in sweden.
The book takes its readers on a journey through the last 100 year’s of national park history. it looks at what national parks
are and examines their past, present and future. detailed profiles of the first parks founded in many European countries
highlight the diversity, beauty and complexity of these green gems.

sostenible en Nueva York, el arqueólogo Abdulamir Hamdani presentó un informe exhaustivo
sobre los sitios patrimonio iraquíes de mayor envergadura- la antigua ciudad de Ur, hogar del
zigurat más antiguo y grande del mundo.
Hamdani contó la historia de la antigua ciudad desde sus tempranos comienzos hasta los
tiempos en que era capital del imperio mesopotámico, hasta las amenazas a las que se
enfrenta hoy en día y las medidas necesarias para protegerla. Un mes después, Hamdani y el
sitio fueron objeto de un artículo excelente AFP y este verano él mismo liderará los trabajos de conservación como director

Restauración y técnicas de conservación
Russia will celebrate the 450th anniversary of St. Basil's Cathedral by opening an exhibition dedicated to the so-called
"holy fool" who gave his name to the soaring structure of bright-hued onion domes that is a quintessential image of Russia.
The eccentrically devout St. Basil wore no clothes even during the harsh Russian winters and was one of the very few
Muscovites who dared to lambast tyrannical Czar Ivan the Terrible.
Ivan, whose gory purges claimed tens of thousands of lives, feared St. Basil as "a seer of people's hearts and minds,"
according to one chronicle. He personally carried St. Basil's coffin to a grave right outside the Kremlin. The cathedral,
constructed to commemorate Ivan's victory over Mongol rulers, was built on the burial site.

Restaurando y reconstruyendo los interiores de la Cancillería de Orleans- París –
Francia
La restauración y nuevo montaje de los interiores de la Cancillería de Orleans son cruciales
para el más amplio conocimiento y apreciación pública de este monumento histórico. El décor
of the hotel, que fue uno de los más significativos de su tiempo, no ha estado a disposición del
público desde el principio de los años 20. La oportunidad de presentar los interiores
restaurados en habitaciones del hotel de Rohan-Strasbourg ofrecerá aspectos comparables a
los de la Cancillería de Orleans, permitiendo su localización en un lugar que está cerca de su
emplazamiento original.

Programa de intercambio de formadores americanos para trabajos de conservación
de las iglesias de Arica Parinacota – Chile
Estas iglesias reflejan las tradiciones de arte y fe en sus comunidades locales, y se han
mantenido en su mayor parte intactas debido a sus emplazamientos rurales. No obstante,
desde que el puerto libre de Arica se construyera en los años 60, ha habido un crecimiento
sostenido de la emigración hacia los centros urbanos en búsqueda de trabajo. Las tradiciones
locales y los materiales para el mantenimiento se están reemplazando por otros modernos y
menos apropiados, y la pérdida de la población ha hecho que disminuya la mano de obra
disponible para cuidar de las iglesias. Se ha desarrollado una propuesta para los edificios regionales, el mantenimiento de
los sitios, y la formación de la comunidad para documentar las iglesias, reforzar las circunscripciones y las oportunidades, y
renovar el valor de estas estructuras de adobe.

The Printing Factory Lofts / Montgomery Sisam Architects - Toronto - Ontario - Canada
Originally built to house the printing presses of Rolph Clark Stone, 201 Carlaw Avenue has been a Leslieville landmark
since its completion in 1913 when this community was at the heart of industry in Toronto.
The Printing Factory Lofts project preserves three facades and incorporates significant portions of the original factory
building into the project including the classical main entrance portico that opens to a grand wooden staircase below vaulted
ceilings. In addition, the original “sawtooth” industrial skylights were rebuilt and integrated into the two storey loft units.
The centre portion of the factory building was carved out to accommodate an eight storey glass tower, two garden courts
and a series of townhouses facing Boston Avenue, the residential street to the east.

LAMIC (Laboratoire de Muséologie et d'Ingénierie de la Culture) - Infolettre - julio 2011 (en francés)
El Laboratorio de museología e ingeniería de la cultura (LAMIC) es una infraestructura de investigación especializada en
museología experimental que centra sus actividades científicas en la cuestión de las modalidades de transmisión de la
cultura en el contexto museístico. Se trata de una plataforma tecnológica que explora las relaciones entre el objeto, el
visitante y el espacio en el que los protagonistas se encuentran para un encuentro inédito por medio de un recorrido
llamado exposición. Esta dimensión particular es la que nos interesa y la que exploramos de distintas maneras, bajo y a
partir de diferentes ángulos. La etnografía de la experiencia museística resume, en cierto modo, nuestro enfoque ante un
fenómeno aún no del todo aclarado.

Murals to be Cleaned for the First Time in a Quarter of a Century - Scottish National Portrait Gallery Edinburgh - United Kingdom
A set of stunning murals, which decorates the entrance hall of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh, is to be
cleaned for the first time in a quarter of a century, as part of a major conservation project funded byWREN, a not for profit
business that awards grants to community projects from funds donated by Waste Recycling Group (WRG) to the Landfill
Communities Fund.
The Scottish National Portrait Gallery opened in 1889, as the world’s first purpose-built portrait gallery. The decorative
scheme created by William Hole in the late 1890s for the Gallery’s magnificent entrance hall, is one of the building’s most
striking features. It comprises a dazzling, painted procession of famous Scots (including David Livingstone, James Watt,
Robert Burns, Adam Smith, David Hume, the Stuart monarchs, Robert the Bruce and Saint Ninian); a series of large-scale
murals, depicting scenes from Scottish history; and a beautifully detailed mapping of the night sky, which adorns the
ceiling.

De La Beche Manor / VW+BS - 2010 - Berkshire - United Kingdom
An entrepreneurial couple approached us with 5 children, a sixth on the way and a number of pets, to help them refurbish
the house they had just bought on a 20-acre estate in Berkshire. The house, dating from the 19th century, had been
added on to in a piece meal fashion by various owners with very mixed results. This resulted in a series of awkwardly
arranged and disconnected rooms that were very dark and did not suit modern family life.

UNITAR (United Nations Institute for Training and Research) World Heritage Training Workshop (Hiroshima Japan - July 2011)
The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) organised its ninth training workshop on the management
and conservation of World Heritage Sites in Hiroshima, Japan, on 4 to 8 July 2011. ICOMOS is a partner organisation in
this series.
In broad terms, the workshop:
* presented participants with key information about the World Heritage system, especially nominations
* also presented useful information about general heritage issues and practices
* focused particular attention on the relatively new World Heritage nominations manual, and on the comparative analysis
part of nominations
* created the opportunity for networking amongst international participants and resource persons
The workshop benefitted from study tours to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park and A-Bomb Dome, and to Miyajima
Itsukushima Shinto Shrine – both World Heritage sites.

Chatelard / Clermont Architectes - Ferney-Voltaire - France
This farm building dating back to the 16th century has a particularly rich history. Today, this adventure is continued by the
rehabilitation of the Theatre du Châtelard.
The farm, composed of dwelling places, barns, stables, ovens, gardens and orchards, became Voltaire’s property in 1759;
the latter undertook improvements in order to house there the domestics of his nearby castle.
Requisitioned by the army during the Revolution , the buildings were used as a guard-room and a bakery. During the 19th
century, the farm went back to its agricultural purpose, until it stopped its activity in 1988.
In 1991, the Theatre du Châtelard was created and set up inside the main barn ; it was then closed in 2001, for security
reasons. A project was launched in order to entirely restructure the theater.

A $13.5 million gift from philanthropist David Rubenstein — owner of the handwritten document — is funding the

Two Year Town Hall Preservation Complete - Provincetown - Massachusetts - USA
In March 2008, officials in Provincetown, Mass., received grim news about the state of the 1886
town hall. The building was so structurally compromised that assessors identified only two options:
repair it by the end of the year or vacate it promptly.
It didn't take much to convince town officials to spring into action. This 284-year-old community on
the tip of Cape Cod wears its history proudly. The Pilgrims sailed the Mayflower into Provincetown
Harbor in 1620 and stayed for five weeks while drafting the Mayflower Compact. In the 19th
century, Provincetown was a thriving maritime center, and a century later, the town became a
magnet for writers, painters, and aspiring actors.

Oyster-Tecture and the Gowanus Canal - New York City - New York State - USA
The Gowanus Canal is one of America’s most polluted waterways, and its location in the
New York Harbor made it one of the many places that were effected by flooding as a result
of Hurricane Irene. If that isn’t enough to think about, last year the EPA declared the
Gowanus Canal as a Superfund site, “As a result of years of discharges, storm water runoff,
sewer outflows and industrial pollutants, the Gowanus Canal has become one of the nation’s
most extensively contaminated water bodies. Contaminants include PCBs, coal tar wastes,
heavy metals and volatile organics. The contamination poses a threat to the nearby
residents who use the canal for fishing and recreation.”

After Twenty-Seven Years and $45 Million, Taiwan Restores Ornate 19th Century Mansion - Taiwan - China
Twenty-seven years in the making, the $45 million renovation of a 150-year-old Taiwanese homestead is finally nearing
completion. The Lin Family Mansion — a complex of five buildings on 7.4 acres (3 hectares) — is one of Taiwan's most
important historical sites, a rare example of the ornate architectural style favored by nobles from southern China in the
waning years of the Qing dynasty.
The renovation has been a painstaking process, with workers facing a variety of challenges — not least a devastating
earthquake — to return the 19th-century structures to their original glory.

Restoring a Classic: Richard Meier's Douglas House - 1973 - Harbor Springs Michigan - USA
Referred to as one of Meier’s best works, the Douglas House hovers over the shores of Lake
Michigan placed upon a steep slope over the water almost as if it is floating amongst the trees.
The Douglas House was designed for clients Jim and Jean Douglas and was completed in 1973
after a three year construction period (1971-1973). Meier furnished the home with furniture
designed by Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and himself, and it needed no ornamentation
other than the nature it was designed around.
As is typical of Meier buildings, the house is completely white made with reinforced concrete and glass except for two steel
pipes that extend from the chimney up to the roof, framing views at the entry level. Taking the natural surroundings into
consideration during the construction, the house was positioned to remove as few trees as possible.

Twelve houses restored in Japan and Italy
By Olimpia Niglio and Taisuke Kuroda
ISBN: 978-88-548-4148-2
The restoration of architecture in a nation is a project strictly connected to its culture, its society, as well
as to the weather conditions and to its political and economic background. The contemporary culture, in
particular, has developed an awareness of the fact that the main purpose of the conservation of
monuments and landscape is not only protecting the matter of social well but also its intrinsic values,
strongly connected to the sense of belonging to the place. The necessity of searching these values comes
from the need of knowledge of the different cultural references that permit to man to direct his choices as concerns
conservation and safeguard compared to popular areas of interest apparently of less importance but vivid from the cultural
and social point of view.
And this is the birth of the relationship between values and needs connected to the demand of transformation of urban and
housing contexts. On these assumptions the book Twelve houses restored in Italy and Japan focuses on restoration
projects of historical urban contexts, where the theme of living produced changes, influenced different intervention
methods and functional choices without changing the sign of history. The book wants to introduce restoration projects
comparing different cultural realities and architectonical methods that characterized the present situation in Italy and
Japan. The experiences described in the book notice an interesting sharing among the different methods of restoration.

Hoi An World Heritage Site, VIET NAM - Heritage Homeowner's preservation manual
Authors: Tran Van An; Tran Anh; Nguyen Duc Minh; Nguyen Chi Trung; Tomoda, Hiromichi;
Nagumo, Ichiro; Chang, Mark & Fukukawa, Yuichi
Country: Thailand/ Publ Year: 2008
The Homeowner’s Manuals have been developed within the framework of the “Integrated
Community Development and Cultural Heritage Site Preservation in Asia and the Pacific
through Local Effort” programme (LEAP), which strengthens local community involvement in
heritage conservation. The manuals aim to build local capacity in heritage preservation by
training homeowners to maintain their historic properties using appropriate conservation approaches. The manuals present
a synthesis of traditional building techniques and modern conservation science. They codify time-tested methods adapted
to each type of structure using indigenous building materials and techniques. The manuals have been developed in
conjunction with local heritage managers and national conservation experts, who will also be involved in training local
stakeholders.
The third volume in this series focuses on the World Heritage site of Hoi An, Viet Nam, an exceptionally well-preserved
example of a South-East Asian trading port dating back to the fifteenth century. Its buildings and its street plan reflect the
influences, both indigenous and foreign, that have combined to produce this unique heritage site. It is hoped that the Hoi
An Homeowner’s Manual will strengthen the local conservation ethic and contribute positively to the long-term
sustainability of this ancient town.

After reviewing the reports presented to NRICP and UNESCO by the Iraqi experts at the conclusion of their
respective training courses, they were found to be so rich and interesting that UNESCO proposed to keep a
record of this experience so that they could be shared with other museums in Iraq. This publication, The

found within are taken from the above-mentioned reports, they will stand over time as an unexpected but valued result of
this initiative.

Stone tools shed light on early human migrations
The discovery of stone axes in the same sediment layer as cruder tools indicates that hominins with
differing tool-making technologies may have coexisted.
The axes, found in Kenya by Christopher Lepre, a palaeontologist at Columbia University in New York,
and his team are estimated to be around 1.76 million years old. That's 350,000 years older than any
other complex tools yet discovered.

Michel Rocard s'inquiète de l'augmentation vertigineuse du tourisme en Antarctique Buenos Aires - Argentine
L'ex-Premier ministre socialiste français Michel Rocard, ambassadeur chargé des négociations
sur les pôles Arctique et Antarctique, s'est inquiété mardi à Buenos Aires de l'augmentation
"vertigineuse" du tourisme en Antarctique.
"Le problème qui pointe, c'est le tourisme : parti de zéro il y a trente ans, il atteint les 55.000

Los parques fronterizos se reúnen para llevar a cabo debates en el parque nacional
Krkonoše- República Checa
Fue con gran placer que la directora de EUROPARC, Carol Ritchie, tuvo la oportunidad de
asistir al tercer encuentro TransParcNet en Krkonoše (República Checa) – Parques
nacionales fronterizos de las montañas Karkonosze (Polonia)
A pesar de los nombres del parque parecen un trabalenguas, el paisaje, el aire de la
montaña, la excelente oferta de alojamiento y la hospitalidad pudieron ser apreciados por
todos los 35 representantes de áreas fronterizas protegidas de toda Europa. El encontrarnos
en el histórico Lu?ní bouda Chaet a 1410 metros una de las cabañas más antiguas y de mayor altitud, nos permitió tener
una opinión de primera mano en las montañas, en todo tipo de tiempo imaginable en sólo dos días.

Shouf Cedar forests lead Lebanon eco-tourism boom - Lebanon
Shouf, Lebanon (CNN) -- Lebanon's 2,000 hectares of cedar forest are a peaceful oasis for hikers, mountain bikers and
bird-watchers, a world away from the hustle and bustle of Beirut.
In the Shouf Cedar Reserve, the country's largest natural forest, villagers make a living selling home-made jam, honey,
pickled olives and wine to tourists.
The area was declared was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 2005. While sustainable tourism is booming, the
ancient forests are under threat from climate change.
Nizar Hani, manager of Shouf Cedar Reserve, said: "Right now we have a new challenge for the cedar forest in Lebanon,
which is the climate change.
"The expected threat to the cedar forest is (that) the natural regeneration will be affected, because the cedar seeds need
to be under snow for two months minimum."

TURISMO SUBMARINO CON EL VIRGIN
El submarino Virgin Oceanic constituye un avance transformativo tecnológico en cuanto a
economía submarina y resultados. El submarino ofrece una capacidad sin parangón hoy en
día para transportar a los humanos a cualquier profundidad en los océanos y para explorarla
en profundidad. Utiliza la última tecnología compuesta y un ala única de vuelo para
desplazarse a través del medio del océano; las criaturas que allí viven tales como los
delfines, las ballenas y las rayas nos han mostrado que este mecanismo alado es el mejor y
más elegante para explorar los mares. El submarino es mucho más caro de fabricar y poner
en marcha que cualquiera de sus homólogos y además está en total armonía con su entorno…

Inauguración de Huaca de la Luna –Nuevo circuito turístico – Perú
Tras la conquista española, estos sitios ceremoniales fueron abandonados y durante los siglos
venideros no se mantuvieron de forma adecuada, por lo que yacieron expuestos a los
elementos, sufriendo la erosión del viento y el fenómeno de El Niño. Por ello, las estructuras de
adobe se deterioraron y las plataformas más elevadas y los elementos superficiales se
perdieron. Huaca de la Luna es uno de los recursos precolombinos más significativos de la
región y es un sito de cierta envergadura que requiere trabajo de conservación continuo
incluyendo encuestas, documentación, consolidación, y la estabilización del material
arquitectónico y decorativo excavado. Las estrategias equilibradas de excavación, conservación e interpretación que se han
aplicado aquí han supuesto un aumento exponencial del turismo local e internacional para el sitio, llevando consigo el
desarrollo económico y oportunidades de trabajo para las comunidades locales. Huaca de la Luna constituye un modelo
para integrar la arqueología, la conservación, el desarrollo de un turismo sostenible, y ha recibido importantes
reconocimientos internacionales- fue declarada uno de los diez lugares mejor conservados en Ibero América- por el
secretario de Turismo de España y recibió el premio Reina Sofía a la Conservación y Restauración en 2006.

Venice: City in Peril
Venice is commonly regarded as one of the wonders of the world, attracting over 17 million tourists each year. However,
the city of Venice faces ongoing problems that threaten its ability to stay above water. The city’s flooding issues are
notorious around the world. Every year water surges through its legendary labyrinth of streets wreaking havoc on
architectural gems such as the Palazzo San Marco. With its architecture under threat, and dwindling population as many
young people flock to the mainland, it is appropriate to think of Venice as a dying relic.

business surveys completed
The survey on visitors to protected areas for STEPPA has now been completed. Parks from Italy,
Spain, Germany, Latvia, the Slovak Republic, the United Kingdom and Finland participated in the
survey. Two different questionnaires were used in the survey: one for customers currently visiting a
protected area and one for potential and previous visitors of protected areas. The data from the
survey is currently being analysed. The results will provide information on customer's views on
sustainability in protected landscapes and their willingness to behave in a sustainable way whilst
traveling. They will be presented at the Sustainable Tourism Conference 2011: Relationships in sustainable tourism
development, held in Savonlinna, Finland, in October 2011. The final report of the survey will be available to all later this

(en italiano) Ecomuseo dei Campi Flegrei, tradizione e futuro del Golfo di Napoli Italy
La costa e le acque che circondano il nostro bel Paese saranno, nei prossimi anni, sempre
più al centro dell’attenzione turistica: il mare “diventa chiaro” per tutti gli addetti ai lavori.
Il settore turistico/balneare, grande risorsa economica del made in Italy, negli ultimi anni ha
conosciuto un forte ampliamento, con relativo trend positivo in ascesa, della rosa di offerte:
“vacanza sul mare”, “vacanza ecobalneare”, “vacanza balneoculturale” e.. di più.
Per parlare oggi di sviluppo turistico, infatti, non si può far a meno di considerare fortemente
il settore crocieristico, relativo alle grandi compagnie (MSC, Costa Crociere ecc.) – e ai grandi circuiti /itinerari
mediterranei, ma non bisogna sottovalutare la forza e la grande potenzialità offerta dai sub-settori turistico/marittimi locali.

Dal marketing alla Cultura dell’Accoglienza
Leggendo l’articolo del Prof. Valerio Castronovo apparso recentemente sulle pagine de “Il Sole 24
Ore” ci si imbatte in un titolo così sintetico eppure così significativo come ”Al turismo non basta il
marketing”.
La caduta libera di una fonte di ricchezza che contribuisce per oltre il 10% alla formazione del
nostro Pil deve necessariamente allarmare le “buone menti” di un Paese maltrattato. Il recente
libro del duo Stella-Rizzo, ha messo nero su bianco il nuovo vandalismo che, come una malattia
autoimmune, distrugge i beni paesaggistici e culturali italiani. Siamo lontani oggi in Italia da una
vera cultura dell’accoglienza che invece sta prendendo piede nel mondo con esempi eclatanti di buona gestione e di buona
amministrazione. Forse anche lo stesso termine turismo oggi non rispecchia più le moderne esigenze. Paradossalmente

BU (Bournemouth University) researcher questions Venice tourist tax
Bournemouth University academic Dr Neelu Seetaram has questioned the introduction
of a tourist tax in Venice, which will see visitors to the city paying an additional
nightly charge on hotel rooms and even campsites.
The tax was put in place by the Council for Tourism in Venice to contribute to
cleaning, transport, policing and other maintenance in lieu of recent government cuts
in Italy.
Speaking to Peter White on Radio 4’s ‘You and Yours’, Dr Seetaram cited her research
into tourism taxation in New York as evidence.

AD Classics: Royal Hotel - Arkady Mordvinov - 1949-1953 - Moscow - The Russian

Originally completed in 1953 as the Hotel Ukraina, the Royal Hotel was designed by Arkady
Mordvinov and Vyacheslav Oltarzhevsky and stands as one of the “Seven Sisters” of Moscow
(Mordvinov was acting as the Chairman of the Committee of Construction and Architecture
at the time). This five-star hotel complex was the tallest hotel in the world at its completion
at 34 stories (650ft) and is sited on the banks of the Moskva River. This unique site required
considerable structural innovation during early construction, which will be discussed later in
the feature.
The Seven Sisters are skyscrapers built in the Stalin-era — the neoclassical Royal Hotel is one of the seven, accompanied

Un naufragio romano lleno de jarras de vino se encontró en Albania por EEUU
(Estados Unidos) – Misión arqueológica albana – RPM Nautical Foundation –
Keywest – Florida – EEUU
La misión arqueológica albanesa afirmó haber encontrado el naufragio bien conservado de
un barco de carga romano en la costa de Albania, incluyendo alrededor de 300 vasijas de
vino – aunque todas vacías.
El naufragio de 30 metros de longitud (yardas) data del primer siglo B.C. y se cree que el
cargamento podría haber sido el producto de las viñas del sur de Albania de camino a los
mercados de la Europa occidental, incluyendo a Francia.
Una afirmación desde Key West, la RPM Nautical Foundation con base en Florida, confirmó que el hallazgo tuvo lugar a 50
metros (yarda) de profundidad cerca de la ciudad portuaria de Vlora, 90 millas (140 kilómetros) al sureste de la capital,
Tirana, al principio de este mes.
La fundación, en cooperación con los arqueólogos albanos, ha estado explorando una parte de las antiguas aguas costeras
sin explorar de Albania durante los últimos 5 años. Hasta el momento, los expertos han localizado 20 naufragios —
incluyendo algunos relativamente más modernos.

La Directora General visita las modernas instalaciones culturales de Shenzhen
Hace treinta años, Shenzhen era una ciudad pesquera de unos 30.000 habitantes. Hoy día, esta
metrópolis de más de 10 millones de residentes permanentes se enorgullece de su moderna
red de instalaciones culturales públicas y de ser el más joven anfitrión de los 26º Juegos
Universitarios Mundiales inaugurados el 12 de agosto.
Shenzhen puede ser una ciudad nueva, pero sus raíces se hunden 3.000 años atrás, como
muestran los objetos de bronce expuestos en el museo de Shenzhen, que la Sra. Bokova visitó,
acompañada de su director y de altos funcionarios de la municipalidad de Shenzhen. El museo
contiene una crónica de la historia de la ciudad desde la prehistoria hasta los tiempos modernos e ilustraciones de tamaño
natural de escenas que muestran el patrimonio cultural y las tradiciones de la región.

La Directora-General de la UNESCO lamenta el anuncio de la intención de Tailandia de denunciar a la
Convención del Patrimonio Mundial de 1972
La directora-general de la UNESCO Irina Bokova ha expresado su más profundo pesar tras la declaración que, durante la
35ª sesión del Comité del Patrimonio Mundial celebrada en las oficinas principales de la UNESCO en París del 19 al 29 de
junio de 2011, hiciera el ministro tailandés Suwit Khunkitti para manifestar su intención de denunciar a la Convención del
Patrimonio Mundial de 1972.
Irina Bokova reiteró que “La Convención del Patrimonio Mundial de 1972 es no solamente uno de los instrumentos más
destacados para la conservación y protección de las propiedades culturales y naturales del mundo que poseen un Valor
Universal Extraordinario, sino también goza de un amplio reconocimiento como una herramienta importante e
indispensable para desarrollar y animar a la cooperación y el diálogo internacional”.

Journée du Patrimoine de Pays et Journée des Moulins 2011: le patrimoine caché - France
...Le voyage dans le temps peut commencer par ce qui a été creusé dans la terre ou dans la roche par les troglodytes.
Depuis que les hommes habitent notre pays, ils ont laissé des vestiges un peu partout. L'archéologie ne cesse d'aller de
découverte en découverte, de la grotte préhistorique à la villa gallo-romaine ou au four à briques abandonné depuis les
débuts du moyen âge. On connaît des puits autrefois situés en surface, que l'accumulation séculaire de ruines et de
bâtiments a enfoui aujourd'hui à deux ou trois niveaux sous le rez de chaussée ! Au fond des caves, des celliers ou du chai,
peut se cacher peut-être le lieu jalousement gardé où sont conservées les bouteilles les plus poussiéreuses. Bien des
châteaux, témoins de guerres de vengeances, de cruautés, possèdent des échappées souterraines, des cachettes, des
prisons, sans oublier…les oubliettes ! Le sol de beaucoup d'églises recouvre des cryptes. Les persécutions religieuses, les
grandes pestes nous ont laissé des catacombes et des ossuaires…

In Old Maine Farmhouse, The Real Christina's World of Andrew Wyeth Lives On - Cushing - Maine - USA
Andrew Wyeth's famous painting "Christina's World" shows a crippled woman dragging herself across a field toward a
farmhouse. A tour of the house, which was declared a National Historic Landmark June 30, offers a fascinating, in-depth
look at the real world of Christina Olson and her family, and also reveals the story of Wyeth's relationship with them.
Wyeth spent 30 years producing some 300 works of art depicting the Olsons and their home in Cushing, Maine. This
summer and fall offer a rare opportunity to see 50 of those paintings and drawings at the Farnsworth Art Museum's Wyeth
Center in the nearby town of Rockland, where they are on loan from Marunuma Art Park in Asaka, Japan, through Oct. 30,
in a show called "Andrew Wyeth, Christina's World and the Olson House."

Chatelard / Clermont Architectes - Ferney-Voltaire - France
This farm building dating back to the 16th century has a particularly rich history. Today, this adventure is continued by the
rehabilitation of the Theatre du Châtelard.
The farm, composed of dwelling places, barns, stables, ovens, gardens and orchards, became Voltaire’s property in 1759;
the latter undertook improvements in order to house there the domestics of his nearby castle.
Requisitioned by the army during the Revolution , the buildings were used as a guard-room and a bakery. During the 19th
century, the farm went back to its agricultural purpose, until it stopped its activity in 1988.
In 1991, the Theatre du Châtelard was created and set up inside the main barn ; it was then closed in 2001, for security
reasons. A project was launched in order to entirely restructure the theater.

Moving Heritage Preservation Forward in Rural Kentucky - Kentucky - USA
When Preservation Kentucky began the Rural Heritage Development Initiative pilot (RHDI) in
2006, one goal was to assist rural communities and property owners as their landscapes
underwent changes due to residential development and urbanization. In studying rural areas in
this region, it became clear that recommendations were needed to help strengthen the
commercial centers and economic focus of small communities, to maintain the character of the
rural landscape and preserve existing buildings that make the region distinctive.

Vernacular Architecture and the 21st Century
Vernacular architecture, the simplest form of addressing human needs, is seemingly forgotten in
modern architecture. However, due to recent rises in energy costs, the trend has sensibly swung the
other way. Architects are embracing regionalism and cultural building traditions, given that these
structures have proven to be energy efficient and altogether sustainable. In this time of rapid
technological advancement and urbanization, there is still much to be learned from the traditional
knowledge of vernacular construction. These low-tech methods of creating housing which is perfectly
adapted to its locale are brilliant, for the reason that these are the principles which are more often
ignored by prevailing architects.

Twelve houses restored in Japan and Italy
By Olimpia Niglio and Taisuke Kuroda
ISBN: 978-88-548-4148-2
The restoration of architecture in a nation is a project strictly connected to its culture, its society, as well
as to the weather conditions and to its political and economic background. The contemporary culture, in
particular, has developed an awareness of the fact that the main purpose of the conservation of
monuments and landscape is not only protecting the matter of social well but also its intrinsic values,
strongly connected to the sense of belonging to the place. The necessity of searching these values comes
from the need of knowledge of the different cultural references that permit to man to direct his choices as concerns
conservation and safeguard compared to popular areas of interest apparently of less importance but vivid from the cultural
and social point of view.
And this is the birth of the relationship between values and needs connected to the demand of transformation of urban and
housing contexts. On these assumptions the book Twelve houses restored in Italy and Japan focuses on restoration
projects of historical urban contexts, where the theme of living produced changes, influenced different intervention
methods and functional choices without changing the sign of history. The book wants to introduce restoration projects
comparing different cultural realities and architectonical methods that characterized the present situation in Italy and
Japan. The experiences described in the book notice an interesting sharing among the different methods of restoration.

La Tanzanie renonce à la route trans-Serengeti - République-Unie de Tanzanie
À la grande satisfaction des défenseurs de l’environnement, le gouvernement tanzanien a abandonné
son projet de tracer une voie express traversant le parc du Serengeti, route qui risquait de
compromettre tout l’écosystème du parc national et son attrait pour les touristes.
Sensible aux avertissements des scientifiques et des écologistes, le ministère des Ressources naturelles
et du tourisme tanzanien, dans une lettre envoyée au Centre du patrimoine mondial à Paris, a confirmé
l’abandon du projet de construction d’une grande route goudronnée à travers le Parc national du
Serengeti pour relier le lac Victoria aux ports côtiers, se contentant de l’actuelle piste caillouteuse de 50
kilomètres dédiée au tourisme et à l’administration.

Worldwide Opposition To Serengeti Road Has Yet To Sway Tanzanian Government The United Republic of Tanzania
What began with science-based opposition by AWF and other conservation groups has grown
into a grassroots movement playing out across social media outlets and echoed by global
influencers such as the World Bank, UNESCO, and most recently, the Government of
Germany. This diverse coalition of scientists and conservationists, economists and
development experts has coalesced around a singular message: the construction of a road
through Serengeti National Park would gravely threaten the last great migration of hundreds
of thousands of wildebeest and erode one of the most pristine landscapes on earth. It would also establish a damaging
precedent that Africa’s ecological and wildlife assets hold little long-term economic value.

Le Nil ne s'est pas toujours écoulé au pied des temples égyptiens de Karnak - Egypte
Situés au cœur de la vallée du Nil, les temples de Karnak ont généré de nombreuses théories quant à leur implantation
originelle : ont-ils été construits sur des îles sableuses au milieu du fleuve ou étaient-ils localisés au pied du Nil comme
c'est le cas aujourd'hui ? Ni l'un ni l'autre : des études géomorphologiques, paléoenvironnementales et sédimentologiques
menées par Matthieu Ghilardi, chercheur au centre européen de recherche et d'enseignement des géosciences de
l'environnement (CEREGE) (CNRS/Universités de Provence et Paul Cézanne/IRD/Collège de France) montrent qu'au
moment de leur édification (en 2000 avant JC) le Nil en était distant de 400 à 500 mètres. Ce n'est que 400 ans plus tard
que le fleuve s'en rapprochera suite à un mouvement hydrodynamique. Ces travaux sont publiés dans la revue Journal of
Archaeological Science.

More than 250,000 people have visited the Museum of Liverpool since it opened four weeks ago, equivalent to the

have flocked to the new Museum with an average of 8,300 people a day through the doors. The Museum which is free
entry opened on 19 July and tells the story of the city and its people. Museum bosses had predicted 78,000 visitors in the
first month of opening, but the response from the public has been three times that.
Janet Dugdale, Director of the Museum of Liverpool said: ”The visitor figures are staggering. We are thrilled with the
success of the new Museum. To get a quarter of a million people through the doors in the first month is fantastic. There is
a real buzz of excitement in the Museum and it’s so nice to see so many people enjoying themselves.”

Celebration of the 450th Anniversary of St. Basil's Cathedral After $14 Million Restoration - Moscow - Russian

Russia will celebrate the 450th anniversary of St. Basil's Cathedral by opening an exhibition dedicated to the so-called
"holy fool" who gave his name to the soaring structure of bright-hued onion domes that is a quintessential image of Russia.
The eccentrically devout St. Basil wore no clothes even during the harsh Russian winters and was one of the very few
Muscovites who dared to lambast tyrannical Czar Ivan the Terrible.
Ivan, whose gory purges claimed tens of thousands of lives, feared St. Basil as "a seer of people's hearts and minds,"
according to one chronicle. He personally carried St. Basil's coffin to a grave right outside the Kremlin. The cathedral,

Venice is commonly regarded as one of the wonders of the world, attracting over 17 million tourists each year. However,
the city of Venice faces ongoing problems that threaten its ability to stay above water. The city’s flooding issues are
notorious around the world. Every year water surges through its legendary labyrinth of streets wreaking havoc on
architectural gems such as the Palazzo San Marco. With its architecture under threat, and dwindling population as many
young people flock to the mainland, it is appropriate to think of Venice as a dying relic.

Priceless Manuscript Stolen from Spanish Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela - Spain
A priceless collection of 12th-century religious manuscripts was stolen from a cathedral in the northwestern Spanish city of
Santiago de Compostela, police said Friday.
Galicia regional police inspector Benigno Roca said a special unit has been set up to try to recover the Calixtinus Codex,
which went missing from a strongbox in the cathedral's archive room last week. He said there were no signs of a break-in.
Roca said European police forces had been alerted.
Cathedral dean Jose Maria Diaz said the richly-decorated tome was of incalculable value. He said whoever took it knew this
and knew where to find it.

El jefe del Estado había pedido a la Comisión sobre el futuro del Hotel de la Marina que le
entregara “antes del verano” un informe “sobre la mejor utilización posible” de este palacete

asociación entre el Estado y el Louvre.

Serengeti Watch: Why We're Not Celebrating - The United Republic of Tanzania
Unfortunately, some in the media have claimed a great victory for conservation, believing that plans for a road across the
Serengeti have been stopped. Some conservation organizations have diplomatically praised President Kikwete for his
wisdom.
But we do not share this view, knowing that those who have pushed for a commercial route through the Serengeti can
claim their victory as well...

AD Classics: Olivetti Showroom / Carlo Scarpa - 1957-1958 - Venice - Italy
The Olivetti Showroom by Carlo Scarpa has recently come full circle. In the late 1950s Adriano Olivetti commissioned
Scarpa to design a display space for his Olivetti products. The resulting Olivetti Showroom was a beautiful space used for

display space for Olivetti products. Though this time Scarpa’s design of the space is what is truly on display.

AD Classics: Hiroshima Peace Center and Memorial Park / Kenzo Tange - 1949 - 1955 - Hiroshima - Japan
On August 6th, 1945, a B-29 bomber dropped the first atomic bomb in history over Hiroshima, Japan, targeting the
intersection of bridges over the Honkawa and Motoyasu rivers. The bomb devastated Hiroshima within a radius of 5 km,
resulting in 140,000-150,000 deaths by December of that year. Kenzo Tange was commissioned with the challenge of
designing the reconstruction of Hiroshima. By designing the Hiroshima Peace Center and Memorial Park, Tange expressed
the solidarity of human kind as well as symbolizing a commitment to peace

Hidden Gems of Yemen
Yemen is a country rich with history. Its cities are full of architectural monuments that are constructed with a craft that
often goes overlooked. These cities merge seamlessly with the surrounding landscape, contextually complementing each
other.
Al Hajjara is one such village that warrants a closer look. Built on the precipice of a mountain, the architecture clings to the
sides of the cliffs. Multi-story buildings rise up out of the ground and step their way to the top. It is quite amazing given
the fact that these buildings were constructed hundreds of years ago, and are still standing.

Revitalising World Heritage Site Museums in Cambodia, Lao People's Democratic
Republic and Viet Nam
This UNESCO-Japan Funds-in-Trust project was designed as a pilot project to accompany the
process of revitalizing the World Heritage-related site museums and interpretation centres
dedicated to archaeological sites of the three countries.
The programme is aimed primarily for the development of professional skills of staff from these
institutions, not only curators and conservators, but also archaeologists and managers of the
World Heritage sites. Ultimately, this project aims to strengthen the regional network of site
museums and professionals. The ever-growing global tourism and striking success of UNESCO World Heritage programme
offer an ideal setting for site-related museums to play a pivotal role as mediator of peace and intercultural understanding,
provider of quality educational contents for local and international communities, as well as agent of development.

BU (Bournemouth University) researcher questions Venice tourist tax
Bournemouth University academic Dr Neelu Seetaram has questioned the introduction
of a tourist tax in Venice, which will see visitors to the city paying an additional
nightly charge on hotel rooms and even campsites.
The tax was put in place by the Council for Tourism in Venice to contribute to
cleaning, transport, policing and other maintenance in lieu of recent government cuts
in Italy.
Speaking to Peter White on Radio 4’s ‘You and Yours’, Dr Seetaram cited her research
into tourism taxation in New York as evidence.

News and new photos from Our Place : WHY WE DO IT…
Sometimes we get asked, “Why do you take photos of World Heritage sites. How does that help with their conservation
and preservation?”
Our Answer is simple. If people aren’t aware of the world’s heritage, then how can they begin to care for it? You can’t like
or respect places that you don’t know about. There are some World Heritage sites which are well known globally and
people are made aware of any issues facing them by the world’s general media. But most sites on the WH list are relatively
unknown – particularly outside the country or region where they are located…

Chateau Barde-Haut Winery - Nadau Lavergne Architects - St Christophe Des
Bardes - Gironde - France
The Chateau Barde-Haut is a 17 hectare domain located in Saint-Emilion,France. Registered
in 1999 on the UNESCO world heritage, the jurisdiction of Saint-Emilion is a remarkable
example of a historic wine landscape which survived intact. In 2005, Nadau Lavergne
Architects rehabilitated a former winery in a building made of traditional stone. Sought again
in 2008 for a project of a bigger scale. The existing site is characteristic of the from the
Gironde wine landscape: an island of stone low houses of the 19th century, contain offices
and the other dependences, appear from rows of vineyards. In the North of this island gets loose a rangy volume: the wine
storehouse.

Libya's other wealth: Archaeological treasures - An interview of Mr. Francesco
Bandarin, UNESCO Assistant Director-General for Culture on CNN.com
UNESCO is like the world's watchdog for protecting historical cultural sites and
property.
You might think the worst time for preserving cultural sites are when the shooting and
the bombing are under way. Not so, Bandarin said, from his office in Paris.
it's already happened in Libya. Bandarin said someone stole the most important
treasure of gold and silver from the time of Alexander the Great from Benghazi -- after
the city was liberated from Gadhafi.
Gadhafi's forces and the opposition fought around the Roman ruins at Leptis Magna and at the ancient theater and temples
at Sabratha. It's not yet clear how much damage there is.

Hoi An World Heritage Site, VIET NAM - Heritage Homeowner's preservation manual
Authors: Tran Van An; Tran Anh; Nguyen Duc Minh; Nguyen Chi Trung; Tomoda, Hiromichi;
Nagumo, Ichiro; Chang, Mark & Fukukawa, Yuichi
Country: Thailand/ Publ Year: 2008
The Homeowner’s Manuals have been developed within the framework of the “Integrated
Community Development and Cultural Heritage Site Preservation in Asia and the Pacific
through Local Effort” programme (LEAP), which strengthens local community involvement in
heritage conservation. The manuals aim to build local capacity in heritage preservation by
training homeowners to maintain their historic properties using appropriate conservation approaches. The manuals present
a synthesis of traditional building techniques and modern conservation science. They codify time-tested methods adapted
to each type of structure using indigenous building materials and techniques. The manuals have been developed in
conjunction with local heritage managers and national conservation experts, who will also be involved in training local
stakeholders.
The third volume in this series focuses on the World Heritage site of Hoi An, Viet Nam, an exceptionally well-preserved
example of a South-East Asian trading port dating back to the fifteenth century. Its buildings and its street plan reflect the
influences, both indigenous and foreign, that have combined to produce this unique heritage site. It is hoped that the Hoi
An Homeowner’s Manual will strengthen the local conservation ethic and contribute positively to the long-term
sustainability of this ancient town.
