Los especialistas en tortugas marinas más destacados del mundo han descubierto
que cerca de la mitad (el 45%) de las poblaciones de tortugas marinas amenazadas del planeta se hallan en el norte del Océano Índico. El estudio determinó
asimismo que las amenazas más importantes a todas las poblaciones en cuestión
son las capturas accidentales durante la pesca de otras especies y la recolección
de huevos de tortugas para comerlos o la explotación comercial del carey.
El reciente informe, preparado por el Grupo de Especialistas en Tortugas Marinas de
la UICN (Unión Internacional de Conservación de la Naturaleza), apoyado por Conservation International (CI) y la National Fish y Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), constituye la primera evaluación completa del estado de todas las poblaciones de tortugas
marinas a nivel mundial. El estudio, ideado para servir de base a programas de conservación e investigación, evaluó el
estado de cada población de tortugas marinas y determinó las 11 poblaciones más amenazadas, así como las 12 poblaciones
en mejor estado.
“Este sistema de evaluación suministra una base de referencia para todas las tortugas marinas, gracias a la cual podemos medir el avance del proceso de recuperación de estas poblaciones amenazadas en el futuro,” explicó Roderic Mast,
Copresidente del Grupo de Especialistas en Tortugas Marinas, Vicepresidente de CI, y uno de los autores del estudio.
“Gracias a este trabajo, hemos aprendido mucho acerca de los éxitos y fracasos en materia de conservación de las tortugas, y ahora miramos hacia el futuro para reflejar las lecciones aprendidas en estrategias sólidas de conservación de las
tortugas marinas y sus hábitats.”
Cinco de las 11 especies de tortugas marinas más amenazadas del mundo viven en el norte del Océano Índico. Las poblaciones específicamente amenazadas de la tortuga caguama (Caretta caretta) y de la tortuga golfina o lora (Lepidochelys
olivacea) se hallan en el norte del Océano Índico, en aguas y playas de nidificación que se encuentran dentro de Zonas
Económicas Exclusivas de países tales como la India, Sri Lanka y Bangladesh. Otras áreas peligrosas para las tortugas
marinas son el este del Océano Pacífico (desde los Estados Unidos hasta Sudamérica) y el este del Océano Atlántico (frente
a las costas de África Occidental).
“Este informe confirma que la India alberga muchas de las tortugas más amenazadas del mundo”, dijo el Dr. B. C. Choudhury, Jefe del Departamento de Manejo de Especies Amenazadas del Wildlife Institute de la India (Instituto de Especies
Silvestres) y uno de los autores del estudio. “Este documento es una señal de alerta a las autoridades para que tomen
medidas más enérgicas de protección de las tortugas marinas y sus hábitats, para asegurar su supervivencia”.
El estudio determinó también cuáles son las 12 poblaciones más sanas del mundo: son éstas poblaciones numerosas y que
enfrentan amenazas relativamente limitadas. Cinco especies, entre ellas la tortuga carey (Eretmochelys imbricata) y la
tortuga verde (Chelonia mydas), cuentan con poblaciones prósperas que incluyen sitios de nidificación y zonas de alimentación en Australia, México y Brasil. El sudoeste del Océano Índico, Micronesia y la Polinesia Francesa albergan asimismo
poblaciones sanas de tortugas.
”Antes de realizar este estudio, todo lo que podíamos decir de las tortugas marinas es que seis de las siete especies están
amenazadas de extinción a escala mundial”, señaló el Dr Bryan Wallace, Director Científico del Programa de especies
marinas emblemáticas en CI, y autor principal del documento. “Ello no era muy útil para la conservación, porque no
nos ayudaba a establecer prioridades en las distintas regiones. Todas las tortugas marinas requieren acciones de conservación, pero este estudio nos ayudará a precisar mejor el blanco de nuestras acciones en las diversas regiones del
mundo.”

Prehistoric clay disks found at Noatak National Preserve in Northwestern Alaska Noatak National Preserve - Alaska - USA
When Mareca Guthrie packed her bags to join a team of archaeologists on an expedition to
the Noatak National Preserve in Northwest Alaska this summer, she made sure to bring some
art supplies along with the camping gear and obligatory mosquito head net. “I packed pencils
and even a watercolor set.”
The fine arts collection manager at the University of Alaska Museum of the North joined the
expedition to a prehistoric settlement on Feniak Lake to make sketches and take tracings of a
group of boulders adorned with petroglyphs, part of the foundation rocks used for several groups of ancient house pits.

Sites palafittiques préhistoriques autour des Alpes
La série de 111 sites archéologiques palafittiques sur les 937 connus dans six pays autour des régions
alpines et subalpines de l'Europe est composée des vestiges d'établissements préhistoriques datant de 5
000 à 500 av. J.-C., qui sont situés sous l'eau, sur les rives de lacs ou le long de rivières ou de terres
marécageuses.

Jordanie : découverte des vestiges d'une cité-état datant de la période
chalcolithique
Les archéologues ont mis au jour les vestiges d'une cité-état qui pourrait élargir
considérablement notre connaissance de la civilisation antique en Jordanie, dans les riches
terres agricoles de la vallée du sud du Jourdain. C'est à 14 km au nord-est de la mer Morte,
dans la vallée méridionale du Jourdain, que se trouve cet immense tertre. Les études et
fouilles récentes ont révélé qu'il renfermait une longue histoire d'occupation humaine datant
de l'époque islamique jusqu'à, au moins, la période chalcolithique (4500-3600 avant notre
ère).
Parfois appelée la "Reine de la vallée du sud de la Jordanie", cette zone est la plus importante parmi un groupe de sites
antiques qui, collectivement, parsèment cette vallée agricole et fertile. L'ensemble est situé à cheval sur les anciennes
routes commerciales et les sources d'eau, avec une vue imprenable sur la zone identifiée par un certain nombre de savants
comme étant la plaine du Jourdain. Il n'est donc pas étonnant que l'on y retrouve les traces d'une grande ville antique.

Minneapolis Institute of Arts to Transfer Volute Krater to Italy - Minneapolis - Minnesota - USA
The Minneapolis Institute of Arts (MIA) has agreed to transfer a 5th century B.C. Greek volute krater acquired by the MIA
in 1983 to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) for delivery to Italy.
The MIA became concerned with the provenance of the object and contacted the Ministry for Cultural Assets and Activities
of the Italian Republic (Ministry). Both the Ministry and ICE HSI provided information about the krater to the Museum.
Working collaboratively with the Ministry and ICE HSI and after evaluating the information provided by the Comando
Carabinieri per la Tutela del Patrimonio Culturale, as well as its own research, the Museum determined that the krater
should be transferred to Italy.

Interactive Dig Crete: Zominthos Project - Zominthos Crete - Greece
Explore the serenity of the highlanders on Minoan Crete.
The ancient Minoans are best known as seafarers, but
excavations at the site of Zominthos, nestled in a plateau on Mt.
Ida, Crete’s highest mountain, have shown that they were also
highlanders. This important second-millennium B.C. site, located
about 1,200 meters (nearly 4,000 feet) above sea level, lies on
the ancient route between the palace at Knossos, the Minoans’ primary administrative center, and the sacred Ideon Cave,
where many believe the legendary god Zeus was born and raised. Zominthos is the only mountaintop Minoan settlement
ever to have been excavated and after just a handful of large-scale dig seasons is already yielding groundbreaking
information.

Interactive Dig El Carrizal: Ayudemos a la Estación de trenes de Carrizal - Veracruz México
El Carrizal se ubica geográficamente en el Centro del Estado de Veracruz, al Norte de la Cuenca
hidrológica del Río Los pescados. Pertenece al Municipio Emiliano Zapata y es fácilmente
accesible desde las ciudades de Xalapa y Veracruz. Debido a la abundancia de recursos
naturales de la región no es extraño que el área sea famosa a nivel estatal por los baños
termales y numerosos balnearios, que representan un atractivo turístico para las familias
veracruzanas.
En el marco de nuestras actividades curriculares de la carrera de Arqueología de la Universidad Veracruzana (UV),
efectuamos labores de vinculación a la comunidad de Agua Caliente, a cargo del profesor Ernesto Fernández Panes. En
nuestro camino a dicha comunidad, notamos con algo de sorpresa los montìculos conservados a la entrada de El Carrizal ;
ubicado en el camino a Agua Caliente. Tres años después, investigando para nuestras tesis de posgrado, « descubrimos »
el sitio como uno de los pocos asentamientos del Formativo en el Centro-Sur de Veracruz ; además de contar con algunos
de los pocos yugos encontrados en contexto de excavaciones controladas.

Interactive Dig Johnson's Island: Unlocking a Civil War Prison - Ohio - USA
Join archaeologist David Bush beyond the "dead line" at Johnson's Island, Ohio. This year,
our investigations are centered on Block 8 within the Prison Compound.
ARCHAEOLOGY joined Bush and his crew in 2002 as they headed into the field to excavate
barracks that once housed Confederate POWs. We returned to Johnson’s Island in 2006,
2007, and 2008 to follow investigations of the prison hospital, where work continues in
2009.
David Bush joined Heidelberg College’s Center for Historic and Military Archaeology in
1998 to focus exclusively on the Johnson’s Island Prisoner of War Depot. He is also chairman of the Friends and
Descendents of Johnson’s Island, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of this National Historic Landmark
site.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) repatriates pre-Columbian bowl to
Belize
Belize's history is rich. Nearly 75 attendees gathered at the Embassy of Belize this past weekend
to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the country's independence from England. U.S. Immigration
and Customs Enforcement (ICE) added to the celebration by returning a piece of history – a preColumbian feasting bowl, common to northern Belize – to the Belizean government.
The z-angle pre-Columbian feasting bowl was created by Mayan Indians. It is nearly 1800 years
old, dating back to 200 to 600 AD and was likely looted from a grave…

Jordan recovers 620 artifacts from Israel - Jordan
The Jordanian authorities have recovered 620 artifacts from Israel through US
mediation after 44 years of captivity, a senior official announced Tuesday.
The treasures, most of them date back to the early bronze age, were discovered by
the Jordanian Department of Antiquities in early 1960’s in southern Jordan Valley,
according to the acting head of the Department Fares Hmoud.
The artifacts were later loaned to an American archaeologist at the Albright Institute
of Archaeology in Jerusalem for further research but Israel seized the treasures when
it captured East Jerusalem from Jordan in the 1967, the official said…

Mexican archaeologists find human footprints in Chihuahua that may be 25,000
years old - Sierra Tarahumara - Chihuahua - Mexico
Five footprints from human feet, calculated to be between 4,500 and 25,000 years old, were
discovered in the Sierra Tarahumara, in Chihuahua. Specialists said that the foot prints could
belong to the first men who lived in this region that is today known as northern Mexico.
These are the first human footprints that have been found in Chihuahua and once their age
has been found out, they will be added to the few footprints from the first people that lived
in the American continent that are preserved in Mexico, particularly in Cuatro Ciénegas,

Stewarding historic and cultural properties within Alaska’s vast network of public lands is not
only technically and physically challenging, it can be downright dangerous. On a recent field

The Archaeological Profession - Archaeology in Contemporary Europe
The upsurge in archaeological activities across Europe has changed the status and responsibilities of professionals within
the archaeological community. Such transformations have important implications in social, economic, educational and
scientific terms.
+ info: http://www.ace-archaeology.eu/the-archaeological-profession.shtml
Comparative Practices in Archaeology
Archaeologists use a range of methods and procedures to better identify and study the past - from the initial detection of
archaeological remains to their excavation and laboratory analyses, and from initial administrative documentation to final
report and publications. On all these practices, comparative 'state of the art' appraisals make it possible to share skills and
expertise, and provide guidance and recommendations.

Archaeology and the crisis (Archaeology in Contemporary Europe)
Major changes in the global economy have affected and will continue to affect our lives.
Both at face value and as a collective syndrome, the 'crisis' clearly impacts on the practice of archaeology, on its
practitioners, and ultimately on the knowledge we produce about the past. This webpage proposes to monitor some of
these effects, on a country by country basis, on four overlapping themes:
(a) Research funding and priorities
(b) Professional employment and skills
(c) Conservation and public outreach, and
(d) Heritage management, policies and legislation
In seeking and submitting information on these themes, remember that:
- Each country have their initial conditions which need to be clearly understood.
- Each country is responding through different measures, with different anticipated and unforeseen effects.
- The 'crisis' can neither account for nor excuse everything that is going on: other processes and patterns need to be taken
on board.
Information in this website is open to comments, periodically updated and reviewed to highlight possible trends. This will
serve us to better grasp the immediate and long term effects of the crisis - and possibly contribute to archaeology's
bouncing back.

Nuevo número de la revista Cuba Arqueológica
Este nuevo número de Cuba Arqueológica. Revista digital de Arqueología de Cuba y el Caribe, está
dedicado a la memoria de tres destacados investigadores: el arqueólogo cubano Enrique Alonso (19402011), el arqueólogo puertorriqueño Ricardo Alegría (1921-2011) y el arqueólogo estadounidense Lewis
R. Binford (1930-2011). Quizá la mejor manera de homenajear a estos importantes baluartes de la
ciencia arqueológica es precisamente continuar profundizando en el conocimiento de nuestro pasado, con
vistas a afianzar la memoria histórica de nuestros pueblos. Es este número de la revista otro esfuerzo en
ese sentido, con artículos que aportan nuevos datos o interpretaciones sobre las islas antillanas, sobre las
sociedades precolombinas, los procesos tafonómicos o el arte rupestre. También están presentes estudios sobre la cultura
material de los esclavos cimarrones y de un contexto urbano de Buenos Aires, cerrando con un texto del importante sabio
cubano don Fernando Ortiz y una bibliografía de la antropología física antillana.

supérieur final a été découvert et fouillé au Buhot. Ce site en bordure de la rivière du Bec est
remarquable à plusieurs titres : la rareté des sites de cette période en Haute-Normandie, son excellent
état de conservation ainsi que la qualité et l’originalité de l’assemblage lithique découvert (près de 5 000 outils de silex).
L’absence de restes de faune est palliée par des études géoarchéologique et techno-typologique, laquelle a permis de
percevoir les objectifs du débitage. De nombreux remontages et raccords associés à l’analyse des méthodes de taille et des
techniques de percussion contribuent à la compréhension des différentes séquences de la chaîne opératoire. Enfin, des
comparaisons régionales et extrarégionales établies avec des gisements de même nature complètent cette étude.

Sous la direction de Didier Paya et Jean Catalo, Inrap
Avec les auteurs : Élodie Cabot, Fabien Callède, Jean Catalo, Sylvie Duchesne, Henri Molet, Didier Paya
(Inrap).
Collection « Recherches archéologiques ». Coédition Inrap-CNRS Editions
Un vaste cimetière médiéval a été découvert, à Toulouse, à l’occasion des fouilles préventives qui ont eu
lieu à l’emplacement de la station de métro Palais-de-Justice, de la Cité judiciaire et des allées PaulFeuga. Une étude portant sur plus de 900 tombes a été menée, alliant les aspects anthropologiques,
taphonomiques, typologiques et chronostratigraphiques. Le but des auteurs dans cet ouvrage est d’aller au-delà de
l’histoire d’un quartier à travers les découvertes archéologiques, mais bien de se pencher sur la naissance et le
développement d’une zone funéraire alors aux marges de la ville médiévale et d’en tirer des conclusions sur l’évolution du
statut des cimetières, des pratiques funéraires et des populations inhumées.

Fouilles et découvertes en Picardie - France
Par Jean-Luc Collart et Marc Talon
Editions Ouest-France/Inrap, juin 2011
La Picardie a marqué le point de départ des études paléolithiques en France grâce à la découverte, au
milieu du XIXe siècle, de traces de vie humaine vieilles de 300 000 à 450 000 ans dans les terrasses
alluviales de la Somme.
De nos jours, au rythme d’environ 150 interventions archéologiques par an, portant sur quelque 650
hectares, la Picardie est sans doute la région de France où l’ampleur de l’aménagement du territoire
favorise le plus les recherches au travers de l’archéologie préventive.

Water History for our Times republished - International Hydrological Programme
© UNESCO
By Fekri Hassan
This current book is the second IHP essay on water history. It draws on and accompanies the first volume
of the HWC series that will appear in autumn 2011, Water History and Humanity, edited by Vernon
Scarborough. Drawing from that volume’s more than forty outstanding chapters, extensive references,
including from conferences of the International Water History Association and from his lifelong intellectual
and academic commitment to water history, Fekri Hassan has formulated the co-evolutionary theory of the
historical transformations of water management that he describes in this truly remarkable essay.
We are convinced that this is not only an important contribution to a better understanding of the interaction of civilizations
with water today, but will also help to guide our actions toward the future.

of archaeology as a whole.
The AIA endeavors to stimulate archaeologists and cultural heritage institutions to work together to implement site
preservation. As the AIA encourages partnerships with other organizations to complement rather than duplicate efforts,

GRASP (Asociación para la Supervivencia de Grandes Simios) Acoge la
Decisión de los Estados Unidos para Revisar la Situación del
Chimpancé
GRASP is hopeful that chimpanzees in the U.S. will soon receive the same
legal respect and protection as those in the wild in Africa
La Asociación para la Supervivencia de Grandes Simios (GRASP) acogió
favorablemente el reciente anuncio del gobierno de Estados Unidos de reevaluar el estado de conservación de chimpancés cautivos, una decisión que
podría cerrar una laguna polémica que muchos creen que obstaculizó los intentos de proteger a los simios.
El Servicio de Pesca y Vida Silvestre de los Estados Unidos (FWS) anunció en Agosto 31, que ha iniciado un revisión, si los
chimpancés cautivos deben ser cambiados de la posición actual de "amenazados" al estado de "en peligro de extinción".
Aunque los chimpancés están clasificados como "en peligro de extinción " en la naturaleza-y algunas sub especies se han
visto reducidas a unos pocos cientos en algunas regiones- el estimado de 2.150 chimpancés en los Estados Unidos esta
considerado de forma diferente, porque alguna vez fueron requeridos para experimentos bio-médicos.

TiHo ( Fondation de l'école vétérinaire de Hanovre) fonde un nouvel institut de recherche sur les animaux
sauvages - Hanovre - Allemagne
La Fondation de l'école vétérinaire de Hanovre (TiHo) a décidé d'élargir son spectre de recherche en se lançant dans l'étude
approfondie de la faune sauvage. Depuis longtemps déjà les scientifiques de la TiHo portent leur attention sur les animaux
terrestres non domestiqués observés dans la région (sangliers, perdrix, chats sauvages...). Désormais ils se concentrent
également sur les mammifères marins tels les phoques et les marsouins. Afin de fusionner ces deux domaines de
recherche, la TiHo fonde un nouvel institut pour étudier la faune sauvage terrestre et marine qui sera dirigé par Ursula
Siebert. Les recherches sur les mammifères marins s'effectueront dans la nouvelle annexe de la TiHo située dans la ville de
Büsum dans le Land de Schleswig-Holstein.

Espèces exotiques envahissantes : les insectes forestiers rongent l'économie américaine
Les espèces exotiques envahissantes, qu'elles soient animales ou végétales, représentent l'une des principales menaces à

due notamment au changement climatique, mais résulte plus souvent d'un transport, volontaire ou non, à l'occasion de
mouvement de biens ou de personnes.

ONU urge a apoyar iniciativa Yasuní ITT como ejemplo de desarrollo sostenible
(Ecuador)
La iniciativa Yasuní ITT, que deja bajo suelo ecuatoriano millones de barriles de petróleo
para evitar las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero, es un ejemplo de desarrollo
sostenible que merece el apoyo internacional.
Así lo afirmó hoy el Secretario General de la ONU durante una reunión de alto nivel sobre
ese proyecto, celebrada en el marco de la Asamblea General de Naciones Unidas.
La iniciativa, lanzada hace cuatro años, pide a cambio de la conservación de la amazonía
7.000 millones de dólares para sustituir los beneficios que significaría para Ecuador la explotación de los yacimientos
petroleros. De esa cantidad, el país aporta la mitad y deja a los donantes internacionales el resto.

biology centre to operate in 2012
The Nigerian government is about to sign an agreement with UNESCO (the UN Educational, Scientific
and Cultural Organization) for an international biotechnology centre that should begin operations in
2012.
Food safety, tropical disease research and the conservation of bioresources are all areas that it is
hoped the centre will strengthen, not just in Nigeria but, through collaborations and training, across
the whole of Africa.
The International Centre for Biotechnology, whose buildings are already near completion, is to be hosted by the University
of Nigeria, Nsukka, and will be a Category 2 institution, under the auspices of UNESCO.

People's Trust for Endangered Species Newsletter - September 2011
In a constantly changing world where wildlife is under threat, many species are declining at an alarming rate. Since 1977
People’s Trust for Endangered Species (PTES) has been helping to ensure a future for many endangered species
throughout the world. PTES is a registered charity with a board of trustees and thirteen employed staff members.
The scale of actual and potential loss of wildlife can seem overwhelming. How can we make a difference? At the Trust we
focus on specific problems and work to preserve endangered species in their natural habitats. We believe that successful
conservation is based on sound scientific evidence and advice with practical outcomes.

mystérieuse période qui s'étend de -250 millions d'années à -300 millions d'années, et où la
Terre ne formait qu'un seul méga-continent, la Pangée. C'est une période-clé à la fin de laquelle
90% des espèces vont disparaître brutalement. Ces vertébrés, qui vivaient avant les dinosaures
sont les premiers à fouler le sol. Ils demeuraient les grands oubliés de la paléontologie...

spécialiste de traces fossiles, Damien Germain, spécialiste d'amphibiens, Lemuel Anseaume, spécialiste de "poissons" et

Il nous présente également, dans la Galerie de paléontologie du Muséum de Paris, d'étonnants fossiles de cette grande
période.
Pour comprendre l'évolution avec ses successions d'apparitions et d'extinctions d'espèces, il nous explique clairement les

Lessons from Biosphere Reserves in the Asia-Pacific Region, and a Way Forward: a Regional
Review of Biosphere Reserves in Asia & the Pacific to Achieve Sustainable Development
This report provides the results of a quantitative and qualitative review of the biosphere reservesin Asia
and the Pacific through the UNESCO Man and Biosphere (MAB) Programme. The MAB Programme has been
in existence for 35 years and in the Asia-Pacific region, leading to the establishment of 105 biosphere
reserves in 28 countries, while additional reserves are being developed. There is therefore significant
accumulated wisdom and experience in the region, providing good opportunities for lessons learned,
identification of successes and failures, and assessments of common problems and solutions. This review
aims to identify these common knowledge factors in the region, with a specific aim to galvanize and focus the accumulated
acquired knowledge and experience in a well organized effort across the region and bring it to bear on the MAB program
going forward.

AD Classics: Villa Tugendhat - Mies van der Rohe - 1930 - Brno - Czech Republic
The Villa Tugendhat was commissioned by the wealthy newlyweds Grete & Fritz Tugendhat, a Jewish couple with family
money from textile manufacturing companies in Brno. The couple met Mies van der Rohe in Berlin in 1927, and was
already impressed by his design for the Zehlendorf house of Edward Fuchs. As fans of spacious homes with simple forms,
Mies’ free plan method was perfect for the Tugendhats’ taste; however, he was not their only interest in an architect for
their own home. They originally confronted Brno’s foremost modern architect at the time, Arnost Wiesner, but after visiting
various projects by each architect, the Tugendhats ultimately went with Mies.

AD Classics: The Kreuzberg Tower - John Hejduk - 1988 - Berlin - Germany
In April of 2010 the architecture community gathered to protect one of the many at risk postmodern buildings of the
1980s. The new owners of the Kreuzberg Tower by John Hejduk drew negative attention from notable architects when they
began altering the building’s façade. The Kreuzberg Tower’s façade has now been restored, and the attention it received
reflects on its postmodern history, and the prominence of its important designer.

AD Classics: Armenian Opera Theater - Alexander Tamanian - 1930-1953 - Yerevan - Armenia
Opened in 1933 and completed in its current state in 1953, the Armenian Opera Theater was designed by Armenian
architect Alexander Tamanian. The theater is one of Tamanian’s most profilic architectural works, which include a plethora
of Armenian architectural icons such as his hydroelectric station (1926), Republic Square (1926–1941) and many others.
The Opera Theater is located in Armenia’s capital city of Yerevan and functions as the primary performance hall in the city,
containing the Aram Khatchaturian concert hall, the National Theatre of Opera and the Alexander Spendiarian ballet. Sited
adjacent to Tamanian’s Republic Square and Cascade Stairwell, this magnificent structure is centrally located within
Yerevan proper and one of the most visible structures in the country.

AD Classics: Bagsværd Church - Jørn Utzon - 1968-1976 - Bagsværd - Denmark
The Bagsværd Church by Jørn Utzon was completed in 1976. Though not his most famous work, the church is an example
of the architect’s inventive work at a different scale. Utzon designed the church with an unassuming exterior that merely
hints at the stirring forms he created inside.The Bagsværd Church was Utzon’s first work after returning to Denmark from
Austrailia and the Sydney Opera House, which he designed. It is located on the northern outskirts of Copenhagen in a
suburban setting. The church stands almost unassuming as a simple, modern structure amidst birch trees, with its back to
a local street.

ISOS - Federal Inventory of Swiss Heritage Sites
1 May 2010 is of particular importance for the Federal Inventory of Swiss Heritage Sites (ISOS) as it marks the date when
the Federal Council introduced the final sites in the canton of St. Gallen to the ISOS, thereby completing the initial
inventory of Switzerland after 37 years. The ISOS is now valid throughout Switzerland.
While the inventory was being completed at one end of Switzerland, its reviewing began in other cantons. Work is
proceeding swiftly so that the remaining ISOS volumes can be published within the next few years.

Report on "Shared Built Heritage in Africa" symposium - ICOMOS - Castle of Good
Hope. Cape Town (South Africa) 02-08 July 2011
A thoroughly stimulating and thought provoking week was enjoyed by all attending the “Shared
Built Heritage in Africa” symposium from 2 to 7 July 2011.
The dramatic symposium venue was the Casteel De Goede Hoop (Castle of Good Hope) in Cape
Town. Site visits were equally inspiring to Groot Constancia, a stunning Cape Dutch House with
huge camphor laurel trees, Stellenbosch in the Cape Vinelands Cultural Landscape (which is on
the South African nominations list), Genadendal Moravian Mission Station, and a guided walk of
historic Cape Town noting management issues and less orthodox sites – one bar has ‘adapted’ stainless steel c1950s
caravans on the roof!. Bureau members took this opportunity to visit ‘Pinelands’ garden suburb (dating from the 1920s to
c1950s), and Robben Island World Heritage Site.

AD Classics: David S. Ingalls Skating Rink - Eero Saarinen - 1958 - New Haven Connecticut - USA
Built in 1958, the David S Ingalls Skating Rink is characterized by a sweeping domed roof, was
designed by Yale graduate Eero Saarinen and is lovingly known as the Yale whale. This hockey
rink contains a span 200 feet long by 85 feet wide and does so with a natural sense of flow and
polish.
Though the rink is seemingly heavy and brutal it is truly a tensile structure. The main structure
comes from a 290 foot long central arched backbone of reinforced concrete. From this central
support the timber roof is “hung” on a cable net structure which gives it the signature double curve. Further cables running
from the central arch to the outer edges of the building help stabilize the structure against wind loads.

AD Classics: Cosmic Rays Pavilion - Felix Candela - 1951 - Mexico City - Mexico
The Cosmic Rays Pavilion represents one of the first experiments with parabolic structures.
The double curved structure is made of a very thin layer of concrete, exemplifying its
structural and design capabilities. These mathematically complex structures define the
popular architecture of the pavilion’s designer Felix Candela.
Measuring 40 feet by 35 feet the pavilion, the structure contains two laboratory spaces
specializing in the measurement of cosmic rays and nuclear disintegration for the
Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Ciudad Universitaria.

AD Classics: Xanadu House - Roy Mason - 1983 - Kissimmee - Florida - USA
Heralded as “House of the Future”, the Xanadu House by Roy Mason is a domed structure
constructed completely form insulating polyurethane foam. The house was appropriately
built less than 30 miles away from Disney World’s “Land of Tomorrow” Epcot Center and the
two were opened only a few months apart.
The Xanadu House Project consisted of three show homes throughout the United States; the
other two were constructed in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin and Gatlinburg, Tennessee. The
point of the homes was to show the general public that this innovative structure could
provide a low cost modern home that could be built quickly and easily. The Kissimmee House was the most popular,

AD Classics: Yale Center for British Art - Louis Kahn - 1974 - New Haven Connecticut - USA
Across the street from Louis Kahn’s first significant piece of architecture stands his last. The
Yale Center for British Art was completed in 1974, the year of Kahn’s death and 23 years
after its neighbor, The Yale University Art Gallery was finished. A style and theoretical
change throughout a career is visible in one scene.
Unlike most galleries, the design prompt for the Yale’s British Art Gallery called for very
specific needs. Being part of an educational institution the agenda called for several learning
oriented spaces. The program consisted of stipulations for exhibition space and storage space for paintings, sculpture,
drawings and prints; a rare book collection; a research library; a photograph archive; an auditorium; classrooms;
workshops and offices; and conservation facilities.

AD Classics: Koshino House - Tadao Ando - 1980-1984 - Ashiya - Hyogo - Japan
Tadao Ando’s design for the Koshino House features two parallel concrete rectangular confines.
The forms are partially buried into the sloping ground of a national park and become a
compositional addition to the landscape. Placed carefully as to not disrupt the pre-existing trees
on the site, the structure responds to the adjacent ecosystem while the concrete forms address
a more general nature through a playful manipulation of light. More about the Koshino House
after the break.
The northern volume consists of a two-storey height containing a double height living room, a
kitchen and a dining room on the first floor with the master bedroom and a study on the second floor. The southern mass
then consists of six linearly organized children’s bedrooms, a bathroom and a lobby. Connecting the two spaces is a below
grade tunnel that lies beneath the exterior stairs of the courtyard.

AD Classics: Chandigarh Secretariat - Le Corbusier - 1951-1962 - Chandigarh India
Taking over from Albert Mayer, Le Corbusier produced a plan for Chandigarh on the foothills
of the Himalayas that conformed to the modern city planning principles of Congrès
International d’Architecture Moderne (CIAM), in terms of division of urban function, an
anthropomorphic plan form, and a hierarchy of road and pedestrian networks, Inherently,
the Secretariat building is the largest edifice in the Capitol Complex and is the headquarters
of both the Punjab and Haryana governments.
Le Corbusier’s plan for the capitol consisted of four buildings (or “edifices”) and six monuments arranged on a single site,
loosely conceptualized as three interlocking squares. Only three of these four buildings were ever realized (the High Court,
the Legislative Assembly, and the Secretariat) and were designed to represent the major functions of democracy — the
fourth building, the Governor’s Palace, was never built.

AD Classics: Bavinger House - Bruce Goff - 1950-1955 - Norman - Oklahoma - USA
The mid-century modern movement found an odd yet welcoming home in the small town of
Norman, Oklahoma. One of its most notable contributors was organic aficionado Bruce Goff.
Goff came to popularity in the 1940’s as both instructor and practitioner of his eclectic brand of
architecture. Goff’s 1950′s Bavinger House is seen by many as the crowning achievement of his
extensive body of work.
The Bavinger House put a new twist on the naturalist modernism of Goff’s contemporaries.
Where Wright used flat planes and conventional floor plans, Goff introduced distinctive floor
plans, mixing materiality with eccentric spaces to produce a desired effect.

AD Interviews: Peter Eisenman
Architect, educator, and theorist, internationally recognized Peter Eisenman was a part of an important generation of
architects and popularized amongst the general public when he was exhibited at the MoMA in 1969 as one of the New York
Five. Eisenman, along with Michael Graves, Charles Gwathmey, John Hejduk, and Richard Meier (Eisenman’s second
cousin) made up the ‘group of architects whose work, represented a return to the formalism of early modern rationalist
architecture’.
Eisenman earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Cornell University, a Master of Science in Architecture degree
from Columbia University, and M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from Cambridge University (U.K). He founded an international think
tank for architecture, the Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies (IAUS), serving as director until 1982 and
simultaneously established his own architecture firm.

President Lincoln's Cottage Shaken Up By August Earthquake - National Trust for
Historic Preservation - Washington D.C. - USA
When a 5.8 magnitude earthquake sent powerful tremors through Washington, D.C., on August 23, President Lincoln's
Cottage and historic buildings near the National Trust Historic Site sustained significant damage. The 1842 Gothic Revival
cottage, which served as a place of respite for Abraham Lincoln and his family during his presidency, and later for
presidents Rutherford B. Hayes and Chester A. Arthur, sustained interior damage estimated in the thousands of dollars,
while the 1850s Sherman Building, part of the Armed Forces Retirement Home campus, was hardest hit, with as much as
$17 million worth of damage.

AD Classics: Menil Collection - Renzo Piano - 1982-1986 - Houston - Texas - USA
Most important Architectural additions to a city are those of spectacle, meant to stand out
and grab attention, such as Frank Gehry’s Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, or Daniel
Libeskind’s extension to the Denver Art Museum. But when Renzo Piano made his American
debut with the Menil Collection 25 years ago, the result was far from spectacle, but rather
more supplementary to an already established neighborhood scale.

The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and Museum is one of the less well known architectural
gems in Portugal. The buildings are part of their own isolated campus in Palhavã, in the center
of Lisbon. Architects Ruy Jervis d’Athouguia, Pedro Cid and Alberto Pessoa designed the
campus and the buildings in memory of the foundation’s namesake, and both the foundation
and the buildings have only grown more respected over the decades. More on the buildings
after the break.
Ruy Jervis d’Athouguia, Pedro Cid and Alberto Pessoa received the commission for the Gulbenkian Foundation and Museum
after winning a competition in 1959. The competition invited three teams of three architects to propose their ideas for
buildings that would serve as a cultural center and museum for the late Calouste Gulbenkian’s impressive art collection.
The final designs were constructed in 1969.

On Oikonomia: Saarinen's Ezra Stiles College Open After $55M Renovation - New Haven Connecticut - USA
NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT–Yale’s Ezra Stiles College, designed by Eero Saarinen and completed in
1961, reopened to students last month after a one-year, $55 million dollar renovation. The project was
the last in a complete overhaul of all the residential colleges at Yale, which started in 1998 and has
cost over $500 million (adjusted for inflation).
Students are happy with the work, praising the new brick pizza oven in the dining hall, shift from
single to suite-style rooms, and improved furniture and lighting. Jon Rubin ’12 told the Yale Daily News
(YDN) the renovated Stiles is “definitely a step up” from the college he lived in two years ago.

AD Classics: Rothko Chapel - Philip Johnson, Howard Barnstone, Eugene Aubry and
Mark Rothko - 1971 - Houston - Texas - USA
In 1964 Mark Rothko was commissioned by John and Dominique de Menil (who are also
founders of the nearby Menil Collection that is housed in the Renzo Piano-designed Menil
Museum and Cy Twombly Gallery) to create a meditative space filled with his site-specific
paintings. The original architect assigned to work alongside Rothko was Philip Johnson, with
whom Rothko clashed over their distinct ideas for the building. Rothko would object to the
monumentality of Johnson’s plan as distracting from the artwork it was to house. For this
reason the Chapel would go through several revisions and architects working on the meditative space. Rothko continued
first with Howard Barnstone and then Eugene Aubry, but ultimately did not live to see the chapel’s completion in 1971. It
was after a long struggle with depression that Rothko committed suicide in his New York Studio on February 25th, 1970.

At the time of its completion in 1976, the Pearl Bank Apartment complex was the highestdensity and tallest residential structure in Singapore at 38 stories. The total height of the
horseshoe-shaped complex exceeded 430’ tall and was home for over 1,500 inhabitants.
Designed by Tan Cheng Siong of Archurban Architects & Planners, Pearl Bank served as a
beacon of contemporary residential design and acted as precedent to the subsequent highdensity urban development in Singapore and throughout southeast Asia.

Organizationally, the parti of the Pearl Bank Apartments is a ¾ cylindrical tower enveloping a west-facing interior courtyard
on the lower level. Not only did this orientation minimize solar heat gain from the afternoon sun, it also was vital to
capturing the magnificent views afforded at the top of Pearl’s Hill. The cylindrical shape of the tower suggested various
structural methods, including the ten arrayed shear walls whose mass serve as physical and acoustic separation between
adjacent units.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Historic Park Inn Restored - Mason City - Iowa - USA
The restoration of The Historic Park Inn Hotel marks the culmination of efforts begun in
the 1970’s. The property was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972
and various attempts at renovation were made over the years.
The $18.5 million restoration has restored the building to its 1910 appearance and into a
27-room boutique hotel. Public spaces in the hotel have also been restored, with period
appropriate furnishings throughout the hotel.
The Historic Park Inn Hotel is a perfect example of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie School
design and the only commercial structure in the state of Iowa.

28 Church Street Extension - S. Porobic Associates - Wellingborough - England
We were commissioned by the Borough Council of Wellingborough to remodel, extend and
refurbish Grade ll listed building at 28 Church Street, Wellingborough. The brief was to bring
back to life very dilapidated building and set the quality level for the rest of forthcoming
development. This small building, set in the heart of Conservation Area, was meant to act
as a catalyst for the Urban renewal of the town centre.
The building was originally part of church assembly buildings formed around All Hallows
Church, Grade l listed building dating from 12th century. The building itself is from 16th
century but majority of the edifice is from the early 19th century. At rear and the west, the site was defined by low quality
20th century extension and extensive overgrown landscaping. To the east the site was separated from the church by high
walls and high shrubs. The last use of the building was storage for the local theatre company.

Torre Blancas - Francisco Javier Sáenz de Oiza - 1969 - Madrid - España
Les presentamos una selección de fotos de Flickr del edificio Torres Blancas en Madrid. Un edificio al que se
ha calificado como ‘obra maestra del organicismo’, y según la Wikipedia, Saénz de Oiza en este proyecto
aunó en una síntesis personal a Le Corbusier y Frank Lloyd Wright. De Le Corbusier, la idea de viviendas
con jardín en altura, como en los Inmuebles Villa, y de Wright, el esquema de la planta de la torre Price –
pero con una forma totalmente distinta. El edificio Torres Blancas es una de las buenas obras de Saenz de
Oiza, y no sólo un experimento de vivienda como los que abundaban en los ’60, lo que se demuestra con
una prueba irrefutable: el arquitecto vivió ahí hasta su muerte.

AD Classics: Institut du Monde Arabe - Jean Nouvel - 1987 - Paris - France
In the early eighties Jean Nouvel in conjunction with Architecture-Studio won the competition
to design what would become the Institut du Monde Arabe. It was conceived during the Grands
Projets, a major development initiative headed by the French government. The IMA was
produced through collaboration with the countries of the Arab League and the French
government. Upon its completion in 1987, it quickly became a popular destination for the local
populace as well as tourists. More details after the break.
One of the main reasons behind the construction of this institute was to create a destination
devoted to the relationship of the Arab culture with France. Located at the threshold of the historical peripheries of Paris
along the River Seine, it responds to its immediate context both in plan and elevation. In plan it follows the curvature of
the road, whose form is dictated by the river.

Patrimoine bâti du Grand Site de la Montagne Sainte Victoire - France
Représentatif de l’identité d’un territoire et de modes de vies ancestraux, le patrimoine bâti mérite une attention
particulière. Sur le périmètre du Grand Site, l’homme a construit une civilisation intimement liée à la nature. Jour après
jour, pierre après pierre, une histoire s’est ainsi construite, empreinte de ténacité et d’ingéniosité. Malheureusement,
l’usure du temps touche nombre de ces édifices.
Par exemple, le patrimoine bâti agricole tend à disparaître. Jadis en cultivant les terres, on maintenait les milieux ouverts,
aujourd’hui la déprise agricole, l’enfrichement des parcelles et leur conquête par la forêt de pins ont parfois fait disparaître
certains éléments architecturaux sous le couvert végétal.
Dans un espace occupé par les hommes depuis le Néolithique un certain nombre de traces : patrimoine archéologique,
religieux, agricole, vernaculaire et certains éléments monumentaux méritent une attention particulière.

Puerta de Europa - Philip Johnson & John Burgee - 1989-1996 - Madrid (España)
Las Torres KIO de Madrid en realidad se llaman Torres 'Puerta de Europa' y recibieron ese
nombre porque fueron promovidas por la empresa Kuwait Investments Office (KIO) aunque
fueron terminadas finalmente por Caja Madrid. Diseñadas por los arquitectos estadounidenses
Philip Johnson y John Burgee en 1989, fueron los primeros rascacielos inclinados del mundo.
Las Torres KIO son dos torres de cristal, granito y metal, inversamente simétricas de 114
metros de altura repartidos en 27 plantas y destaca su inclinación de 15º respecto a la vertical.
El secreto de su construcción se basa en que la mayoría de su peso descansa sobre un eje
central de concreto y acero que estructura cada una de ellas, mientras que la parte 'inclinada' de cada una de las torres es
mucho más ligera.

Leazar Hall Renovation & Additions - Cannon Architects - 2007 - Raleigh - North

This 62,000 sqf renovation and addition project is the first phase of an overall master plan for NC
State University’s College of Design. Leazar Hall, originally a Dining Hall (Circa 1912), had been
subdivided over the years into a maze of office and classroom spaces. This project restores the
three level (plus mezzanine) building into a single use building for studios, seminar / review
rooms, materials lab, and faculty offices. The project consisted of totally gutting the interior of
the building, including all engineering systems. Interior spaces were opened up to create the
program requirements for studios, materials lab (woodworking, metal, welding, finishing booths, CNC machines, etc.)
seminar rooms, review spaces, and offices. The north-south and east-west axes were opened up, creating circulation zones
and review spaces. New systems for plumbing, mechanical, fire protection and electrical were added within the existing
framework.

AD Classics: Balfron Tower - Erno Goldfinger - 1967 - London - United Kingdom
The Balfron Tower by architect Erno Goldfinger is an iconic Brutalist residential high rise located in London’s
eastside Poplar borough. Designed in 1963 for the London County Council and completed in 1967 by the
Greater London Council, this social housing estate broke the traditions of typical residential architecture.
Conceived as a solution to sprawling suburbia, Goldfinger embraced verticality as the cure. More details
after the break.
Rising to 84 meters in height, the Balfron Tower dwarfs its immediate neighbors – the Carradale House,
and the Glenkerry House – all forming part of the Brownfield Estates also designed by Goldfinger. In a
drastic shift from the typical preconception of tower architecture, Goldfinger separated the services from the
accommodation by splitting the tower in two. Entry is gained via a concrete bridge that opens into the main lobby of the
slender service tower. The internal core houses the lifts and staircases, in addition to the utility functions such as laundry,
and waste disposal chutes. A pattern of thin windows breaks up the monolithic concrete exterior and provides ample
daylighting into the interior. A boiler room located at the top of the service tower cantilevers out slightly from the main
façade. This served to reduce the need for pumps as water could flow down to the flats by gravity.

The floodwaters of Tropical Storm Irene that ripped up roads and washed into living rooms
across Vermont took a dramatic toll on quaint old villages — filling white, steepled churches
with muck and knocking 19th-century clapboard houses off their foundations.
That's a big problem for a small state that cherishes its history.
The classic villages of clapboard and stone buildings hugging the state's rivers and streams
are the essence of Vermont and a big tourist draw. While Irene damaged many "individual
gems" with historical and architectural value, preservationists also fear the broader toll the
storm levied on entire neighborhoods deemed historically important by the state and federal governments.

New Historic Arctic Sea Ice Minimum 2011 - Arctic sea ice extent small as never before - University of Bremen
- Germany
Alerting message from the Arctic: The extent the the Arctic sea ice has reached on Sep. 8 with 4.240 million km2 a new
historic minimum (Figure 1). Physicists of the University of Bremen now confirm the apprehension existing since July 2011
that the ice melt in the Arctic could further proceed and even exceed the previous historic minimum of 2007. It seems to
be clear that this is a further consequence of the man-made global warming with global consequences. Directly, the
livehood of small animals, algae, fishes and mammals like polar bears and seals is more and more reduced…

Les glaces de l'Arctique sont à leur plus bas niveau depuis 1972 - Université de Brême Allemagne
Samedi, des scientifiques allemands ont annoncé que l'étendue des glaces de l'Arctique se trouve
désormais à son niveau le plus bas depuis 1972, selon des mesures effectuées le 8 septembre dernier.
Alors que de nombreux scientifiques ne cessent d'alerter sur l'augmentation de la fonte des glaces, c'est
une nouvelle préoccupante qu'ont annoncée samedi des chercheurs de l'Institut de physique
environnementale de l'Université de Brême en Allemagne. Selon les dernières analyses qu'ils ont
effectuées, l'étendue des glaces de l'Arctique aurait atteint un niveau critique, le plus bas jamais
observé depuis le début des observations par satellite en 1972. Le 8 septembre dernier, les glaces du pôle Nord
n'enrobaient plus que 4,24 millions de kilomètres carrés.

La UNESCO ayuda a los Pequeños Estados Insulares en la educación relativa al
cambio climático
El cambio climático constituye una amenaza real para los Pequeños Estados Insulares en
Desarrollo. En una reunión de expertos auspiciada por la UNESCO, que tendrá lugar en
Nassau (Bahamas) del 21 al 23 de septiembre, se abordará la función esencial de la
enseñanza para ayudar a que los pueblos del Caribe y de los océanos Índico y Pacífico se
adapten a este desafío.
La adaptación al cambio climático requiere que las personas comprendan por qué está
cambiando el clima y cómo lo hace, y las consecuencias que dichos cambios pueden tener para sus vidas. En esta reunión
de tres días de duración se prestará especial atención al papel fundamental que la educación desempeña, mediante el
aumento de la capacidad de adaptación de las comunidades y los países al cambio climático, al dotar a las personas de la
capacidad de adoptar decisiones bien fundamentadas.

Slowest to fastest: Extreme range in lichen growth rates supports their use as an indicator of climate change
in Antarctica
By Sancho, L.G., Allan Green, T.G.a, Pintado, A
Global temperature rise is suggested to be greater and more rapid in polar regions. There has been a clear temperature
rise of 0.056 °C y-1 in the Antarctic Peninsula and this has led to changes in higher plant extent and range. In the more
extreme environments of the main continent the vegetation is scattered and composed of lichens and mosses. There is
interest in the possible effects of global climate change on these communities acting through changes in temperature and
precipitation. Lichens have been extensively used to date the substrates on which they are growing using the techniques of
lichenometry. The slow growth and longevity of lichens particularly suites them for this use. We present evidence that
there appears to be a substantial (two orders of magnitude) cline in lichen growth rate from the warmer, wetter and more
productive Peninsula to the cold Dry Valleys at 77°S latitude. The differences in growth rate reflect the precipitation and
temperature regimes at the different sites. The large range in growth rates coupled with the simplicity of measuring lichen
growth using modern techniques suggests that this could be an excellent tool for the detection of climate change in
continental Antarctica. © 2007 Elsevier GmbH. All rights reserved.

Une dimension internationale des conséquences du changement climatique pour le Royaume-Uni
Pour le Royaume-Uni, les conséquences du changement climatique qui affecteront le reste du monde pourraient être aussi
importantes que l'impact direct sur les îles britanniques.
C'est la principale conclusion d'un rapport publié début juillet par l'Office gouvernemental pour la Science, à travers son
programme d'anticipation stratégique Foresight (voir ci-dessous). Alors que de nombreuses études scientifiques se sont
attachées à évaluer quel sera l'impact direct du changement climatique sur le Royaume-Uni et la plupart des politiques
gouvernementales à déterminer les moyens de le limiter et de s'y préparer, cette réflexion prospective met l'accent sur
une dimension internationale assez rarement mise en avant.

Réunion autour du programme de recherche BIOACID sur l'acidification des océans - Brême - Allemagne (2630 septembre 2011)
Plus de 100 chercheurs spécialisés dans la recherche marine vont se rencontrer du 26 au 30 septembre à l'Université de
Brême. Le thème abordé sera l'augmentation du dioxyde de carbone dans l'atmosphère qui non seulement entraîne une
augmentation des températures mais également du taux d'acidité des océans. L'importance de ce phénomène et les fortes
conséquences qui en découlent ont commencé à retenir l'attention des spécialistes depuis quelques années déjà. Ils
craignent qu'une telle acidification entraîne une diminution de la résistance des récifs coralliens et autres mollusques
présentant un squelette ou une coquille calcaire. Le programme national de recherche BIOACID regroupe 14 instituts
partenaires ainsi que diverses entreprises travaillant dans le domaine de la technologie des capteurs. Sous l'égide de
BIOACID, se sont des biologistes, des chimistes et des physiciens experts du domaine marin, ainsi que des biologistes
moléculaires, paléontologues et mathématiciens qui discuteront de leurs nouvelles découvertes dans le domaine de
l'acidification des océans et d'informer leurs collègues sur les nouvelles techniques de mesures développées.

Pourquoi les modèles climatiques sous-estiment le déclin de la banquise arctique ?
Depuis quelques décennies, la banquise arctique subit un déclin spectaculaire, qui va bien audelà des projections des modèles climatiques. La rapidité inattendue de cette disparition vient
d'être expliquée par des chercheurs du CNRS, de l'Université Joseph Fourier et du
Massachusetts institute of technology. Selon eux, les modèles climatiques sous-estiment la
vitesse d'amincissement de la banquise. Celle-ci est en réalité près de quatre fois plus rapide
que celle calculée par les modèles. À l'origine de ce biais, une "mauvaise" représentation de la
dérive des glaces de mer, et donc de leur évacuation vers le sud, à travers le détroit de Fram,
hors du bassin arctique. Permettant de corriger l'écart entre simulations et observations, une meilleure prise en compte de
ce mécanisme suggère la disparition de la banquise arctique estivale, bien avant la fin du siècle. Ces travaux sont publiés
dans la revue Journal of geophysical research le 29 septembre 2011.

colonisation des continents par les plantes a profondément changé le cycle de l’eau. La conséquence fut une baisse
massive de la quantité de CO2 atmosphérique, sans pour autant modifier la température moyenne du globe. Evénement

Unprecedented Arctic ozone loss in 2011
Abstract.
Chemical ozone destruction occurs over both polar regions in local winter–spring. In the Antarctic, essentially complete
removal of lower-stratospheric ozone currently results in an ozone hole every year, whereas in the Arctic, ozone loss is
highly variable and has until now been much more limited. Here we demonstrate that chemical ozone destruction over the
Arctic in early 2011 was—for the first time in the observational record—comparable to that in the Antarctic ozone hole.
Unusually long-lasting cold conditions in the Arctic lower stratosphere led to persistent enhancement in ozone-destroying
forms of chlorine and to unprecedented ozone loss, which exceeded 80 per cent over 18–20 kilometres altitude. Our results
show that Arctic ozone holes are possible even with temperatures much milder than those in the Antarctic. We cannot at
present predict when such severe Arctic ozone depletion may be matched or exceeded.

Climate Change and Adaptation for Water Resources in Yellow River Basin, China
Climate change is having profound impacts on water resources around the world, as evidenced by
changes in snowpack, sea level, and river flows. These changes are expected to continue in the future, in
forms of weather pattern changes, and increased risks of water-related disasters such as floods and
droughts. As "cradle of the Chinese civilization", the Yellow River is faced with tightened challenges of
climate change. It is estimated that from 1956 to 2000, runoff in the Yellow River basin has been
reduced by almost 8%. Similar reduction has been observed as well in regards to precipitation.
Reductions in both runoff and precipitation have decreased the amount of water supply in the Yellow
River basin. In contrast, water demands have been increasing derived from industrial and agricultural development, along
with rapid urbanization process in the basin area…

En los últimos años, el interés público en las obras de arte saqueadas o saqueos durante la segunda guerra mundial se ha
incrementado dramáticamente en todo el mundo. En todo el mundo, investigadores y personas exploran las colecciones de
los archivos y museos para encontrar obras de arte que han perdido la pista desde su desaparición durante la Segunda
Guerra Mundial. Por su parte, los museos públicos y privados - en Europa y Estados Unidos - han comenzado a hacer
investigaciones en sus propias colecciones. Muchos países han establecido comisiones nacionales y grupos de trabajo para
estudiar los archivos, para examinar el origen de la obra o para procesar las solicitudes de saqueo de sus propietarios o de
sus herederos. Algunas organizaciones privadas y asociaciones están dedicadas a estas mismas tareas.

Historypin app lets people create a "time machine" - United Kingdom
For people who have stood at a monument or scanned a landscape -- the Great Wall of China, for instance, or the U.S.
Grand Canyon -- and wondered how it looked 100 or more years ago, there is now an app for you. Historypin, on iOS and
Android platforms, strives to create a collection of memories about locations by counting on people to dig up and digitize
old photographs and other media of the places, along with personal recollections of the past.
Combined with modern pictures and memories, the app creates a story of a place for people to enjoy -- a sort of "time
machine in your pocket," its backers say.

Sambhar Master Plan: A heritage-based approach to wetland conservation through the
Ramsar Document on Culture and Wetlands in India - Sambhar - Jaipur district Rajasthan
The vast cultural significance of the town of Sambhar is directly related to Sambhar Lake. The
lake has been used as a source of salt production from the 6th century AD, which is also around
the time when historians pinpoint that the present-day town was founded by King Vasudev of
the Chauhan Dynasty. Over time, salt production of the lake, as well as the town itself, has
passed through the hands of Mughal and Rajput dynasties, and finally by the British in 1870 until
independence in 1947. These different influences have created a multi-dimensional urban fabric representing all these
phases. Sambhar also has a significant religious history. It is believed that the lake was a gift by Mata Shakambhari about
2500 years ago, and is an important religious site for both Hindus and Muslims.

World Monuments Fund announces two major grants for sites in the United-Republic of Tanzania and
Cambodia
World Monuments Fund (WMF) announced today that it has received two major grants from the U.S. Ambassadors Fund
for Cultural Preservation for projects at Phnom Bakheng in Cambodia and Kilwa Kisiwani in Tanzania.
Phnom Bakheng, built between the late-ninth and early tenth centuries as a state temple for a city later absorbed into
Angkor, is one of the oldest temples in the Angkor Archaeological Park. The award of $450,000 will complete a
conservation project begun in 2009 with a prior $1 million Ambassadors Fund grant. The temple is one of the most popular
at Angkor, especially at sunset, for the view it affords of Angkor Wat. Heavy foot traffic from tourists has created serious
conservation issues at the site, which are being addressed with the Ambassadors Fund support as well as an additional
$150,000 committed by WMF through its Robert W. Wilson Challenge to Conserve Our Heritage. In addition to conserving
the temple, WMF’s project, in collaboration with APSARA National Authority, is reviewing all needs at the site from
management of rainwater runoff to improving the visitor experience.

Houston's Menil Collection Announces Return of Byzantine Frescoes to Cyprus in 2012 Houston - Texas(USA)
After more than two decades in Houston, the beloved Byzantine frescoes will go back to Cyprus in 2012.
While this moment is bittersweet, the story of these frescoes—from their rescue, to their long-term loan
to us, and now to their return—very much reflects the essence of the Menil Collection, its focus on the
aesthetic and the spiritual, and our responsible stewardship of works from other nations and cultures…

Los Museos, bibliotecas, centros culturales y emprendimientos comerciales que funcionan en edificios de valor patrimonial
son muchas veces considerados espacios ideales . Sin embargo en el momento de abordar la cuestión de la seguridad , el
tema se vuelve complejo por los propios condicionamientos de estas instituciones para cumplir tanto con la preservación
como con los servicios que deben brindar.
Cuando nos referimos a la seguridad en los museos, los primeros temas que surgen son robo e incendio. E inmediatamente
pensamos en las vitrinas , en los cerramientos , en los materiales combustibles , en los depósitos. Sin embargo , la
seguridad implica mucho mas. En el entorno , el edificio , son las colecciones y también las personas que trabajan en ellos.

Fortress of Fortezza - Markus Scherer with Walter Dietl - 2009 - Franzensfeste - Italy
“Begun under Francis I in the year 1833 – completed by Ferdinand I in the year 1838”, reads the Latin
inscription over the gate of the fortress. In just five years, over 6,000 workers and soldiers built a blocking
position at one of the narrowest points in the Eisack valley. It has the dimensions of a small town and, with
a surface area of 20 hectares, is the largest fortification in the Alpine region. With this monumental
defensive work the Habsburgs hoped to halt the advance of the revolutionary changes provoked by the
French revolution. Designed by regimental engineer Franz von Scholl, it consists of three autonomous
sections: the upper, middle and lower fortress levels. It has clear and simple classicist lines; it is functional
and impregnable. As the military threat did not materialize in the decades following its construction, however, the fortress

came under Italian rule and was used by the army until 2003.

Jean Nouvel Jewelbox Houses Historic Carousel - New York - New York State - USA
In 1922 the Philadelphia Toboggan Company made a classic 3-row carousel with 48 carved
horses and 2 chariots accompanied by wood carvings that are said to be among the finest of
their kind. This historic carousel, the first to be placed on the National Register of Historic
Places, re-opened to the public on September 16th. Jane’s Carousel, entirely restored including
original scenery panels, rounding boards, crests, center pole and platform is nestled between
the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges within a Jean Nouvel designed acrylic pavilion in Brooklyn
Bridge Park. Nouvel’s steel framed clear box can be opened on two sides providing an openaired experience. At night white shades can be drawn and the shadows of the 48 horses dance across the walls.

Jeju University Cultural Heritage Center - poly.m.ur - Jeju - The Republic of Korea
The design of the new Jeju Cultural Heritage Centre started from an attempt to interpret the
cultural value of the traditional artifacts that are to be exhibited here with contemporary view.
poly.m.ur was intrigued by the fact that these artifacts are exemplary in showing the influence
of regional material on the life of early settlers, and they wanted their proposal to be seen as
an object which can symbolize the local characteristics shaped by the abundant availability of
basalt as raw material and the indigenous techniques of tool making.
While the use of basalt rock imagery of the overall appearance of the building was intended as
the simple yet most effective symbolism which can be associated with its specific locality, the ratio and rigor underlying the
con-struction of the geometry was metaphorical to the intellects presents in the indigenous culture.

Society for Oceanists
The Society for Oceanists is a group of people interested in the socio-cultural world of Australia, Melanesia
and the large Polynesian triangle. These lands, spread out over a vast maritime space, are places of memory
for the people who inhabit them and have created many different forms of social and cultural organizations.
The Society for Oceanists is a non-profit association that was created in 1945 at the Museum of Man in Paris.
It evolved from two old learned societies: the Society for Oceanian Studies, founded in Papeete (Tahiti), and
the Society for Melanesian Studies, founded in Nouméa (New Caledonia). Its headquarters are at the Quai
Branly Museum. The purpose of the Society for Oceanists’ activities is to facilitate and exchange views in
diverse areas that have as much to do with the human and social sciences as with natural sciences. These activities include
the organization of meetings and symposiums, as well the Society of Oceanists’ different published works and journal.

An Aboriginal Australian Genome Reveals Separate Human Dispersals into Asia
We present an Aboriginal Australian genomic sequence obtained from a 100-year-old lock of hair donated by an Aboriginal
man from southern Western Australia in the early 20th century. We detect no evidence of European admixture and
estimate contamination levels to be below 0.5%. We show that Aboriginal Australians are descendants of an early human
dispersal into eastern Asia, possibly 62,000 to 75,000 years ago. This dispersal is separate from the one that gave rise to
modern Asians 25,000 to 38,000 years ago. We also find evidence of gene flow between populations of the two dispersal
waves prior to the divergence of Native Americans from modern Asian ancestors. Our findings support the hypothesis that
present-day Aboriginal Australians descend from the earliest humans to occupy Australia, likely representing one of the
oldest continuous populations outside Africa.

Denisova Admixture and the First Modern Human Dispersals into Southeast Asia and Oceania
It has recently been shown that ancestors of New Guineans and Bougainville Islanders have inherited a proportion of their
ancestry from Denisovans, an archaic hominin group from Siberia. However, only a sparse sampling of populations from
Southeast Asia and Oceania were analyzed. Here, we quantify Denisova admixture in 33 additional populations from Asia
and Oceania. Aboriginal Australians, Near Oceanians, Polynesians, Fijians, east Indonesians, and Mamanwa (a “Negrito”
group from the Philippines) have all inherited genetic material from Denisovans, but mainland East Asians, western
Indonesians, Jehai (a Negrito group from Malaysia), and Onge (a Negrito group from the Andaman Islands) have not.
These results indicate that Denisova gene flow occurred into the common ancestors of New Guineans, Australians, and
Mamanwa but not into the ancestors of the Jehai and Onge and suggest that relatives of present-day East Asians were not
in Southeast Asia when the Denisova gene flow occurred. Our finding that descendants of the earliest inhabitants of
Southeast Asia do not all harbor Denisova admixture is inconsistent with a history in which the Denisova interbreeding
occurred in mainland Asia and then spread over Southeast Asia, leading to all its earliest modern human inhabitants.
Instead, the data can be most parsimoniously explained if the Denisova gene flow occurred in Southeast Asia itself. Thus,
archaic Denisovans must have lived over an extraordinarily broad geographic and ecological range, from Siberia to tropical
Asia.

Netherlands to Kleve in Germany. Suddenly, all the mobile phones started bleeping. The group – taking
part in a year-long programme investigating migration teaching – had crossed a border.
For most, this was a normal part of being a European. For many others this was a special moment – they
were in a new borderless world. As Europe changes, the question before
history teachers, researchers, academics, policy-makers, and students, was could their teaching methods
also embrace new ideas and new methods – and move from national frameworks to a more global one.

Emile André, art nouveau et modernités
Par Doucet
Editeur : Honoré Clair
ISBN : 978-2-918371-09-0
A l’aube du siècle naissant, la Lorraine constitue le coeur battant de l’Art nouveau.
Connue sous le nom d’Ecole de Nancy, « l’Alliance provinciale des industries d’art » regroupe des
architectes, des industriels d’art et des artistes décorateurs comme Emile Gallé, Victor Prouvé, Louis
Majorelle, Antonin Daum ou encore Eugène Vallin… A leurs côtés, Emile André (1871-1933) est peut-être
l’un des artistes de cette école dont la renommée est aujourd’hui la plus discrète : certaines de ses réalisations comptent
pourtant parmi les oeuvres fondatrices de l’architecture Art nouveau.
Après des études à l’Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Paris, Emile André entreprend de nombreux voyages qui le conduisent
jusqu’en Perse : ils sont à l’origine de sa passion pour l’archéologie et la culture musulmane. En 1900, il s’installe à Nancy
en tant qu’architecte. Il y construit des villas luxueuses et excelle dans la création de pièces de mobilier, participant ainsi à
la quête d’un art total. Au lendemain de la Première Guerre mondiale, l’architecte se tourne vers le régionalisme, courant
majeur de la modernité de la première moitié du XXe siècle.

The Medieval Chantry in England and Wales - Journal of the British Archaeological Association - Volume 164
Published for the British Archaeological Association
ISBN: 978 1 907975 16 5
The Medieval Chantry in England and Wales is a special themed issue of Volume 164 of the Journal of the British
Archaeological Association. Subscribers to the journal will receive a paperback version of the issue as part of their
subscription.
The subject is one that has attracted considerable attention from archaeologists and historians of art, architecture and
music over the last two decades, though relatively little has been published. The volume includes essays on the prehistory
of the chantry, music and the chantry priest, chantries in the parish, English royal chantry provision, the origins and early
development of the cage chantry, the chantries of William of Wykeham, textiles and commemoration, the Audley Chantries
at Hereford and Salisbury, the Spring Chantry at Lavenham, Abbot Islip at Westminster, and the Dissolution of the
Chantries.

Sigmund Stern Grove - 1932 - San Francisco - California - USA
Dedicated in 1932 on fourteen acres of land given by Rosalie M. Stern in honor of her husband
Sigmund, the outdoor concert venue is in the Sunset District in southwest San Francisco. Soon
after Stern’s donation, the city purchased fifty additional acres to the west which became Pine
Lake Park. The combined 64-acre rectilinear space is situated in a narrow natural basin, with
the park on the west side and amphitheater to the east on Stern’s donated land, where the
natural acoustics are well suited to the purpose.

Biography of John Francis Collins
John Francis Collins was born in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. His father William was a newspaper
columnist and his mother Florence was an artist and teacher. He learned to draw early in his childhood
and, as a teenager, became involved with horticulture working at local nurseries. He started a commercial
nursery in his parent’s backyard, growing trees and potted plants. At nineteen, he entered the landscape
architecture program at Pennsylvania State University where he received a B.L.A. in 1959. Collins entered
the Harvard Graduate School of Design, simultaneously working with his professor, Hideo Sasaki, as an
associate at Sasaki Walker and Associates. Upon achieving his M.L.A. in 1962, he was awarded the Charles
Eliot Traveling Fellowship resulting in an extended tour of Italy with his family.

Saving History in New Jersey: Preservationists Hope for Victory on Victory Trail - Hopewell Township - New
Jersey - USA
Two hundred thirty-five years after George Washington crossed the Delaware River and triumphed in the Battle of Trenton,
another battle is raging nearby.
Preservationists in Hopewell Township, N.J., are at odds with Mercer County officials over the future of the historic Jacob's
Creek Bridge, an iron truss span located near the trail Washington followed to Trenton. The bridge is unstable and has
been closed to all automobile traffic since September 2009. County officials are conducting an engineering study for the
construction of an entirely new bridge, as well as working to introduce a new road alignment, which would destroy a
significant portion of Washington's Victory Trail.

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.

Frick Art Reference Library photo archive records now accessible online - New York New York State - USA
Scholars in multiple disciplines around the world have long heralded the Photoarchive of the Frick
Art Reference Library as uniquely valuable to research that relates to object-oriented study of
works of art. Without this repository of an estimated 1.2 million images of works created by
more than 40,000 artists, curators, art dealers, and authors of monographic catalogues would be
hard pressed to find visual documentation of unpublished art and the preparatory studies,
versions, copies, or forgeries that relate to those and even to more famous works. In recent
years, the Frick’s Photoarchive has also played a key role in helping researchers compile provenance information about art
looted during World War II…

the Archives’ rich collections that document the history of the Smithsonian and its role in the arts, science and culture of
the United States.
The Smithsonian Archives is the record keeper of the Smithsonian—collecting, preserving and making available the official
records of the Smithsonian’s 19 museums, nine research centers and the National Zoo.

The British Museum is the first United Kingdom arts organisation to publish its collection
semantically - London - United Kingdom
The British Museum is committed to making its collection, and data relating to the collection, accessible to
a global audience both physically and virtually. Collection Online, the British Museum’s web database
implemented in 2007, already allows visitors to the Museum’s web site to search nearly 2 million object
records, a third of which currently include at least one digital image.
The British Museum has now released a Semantic Web version of the database complementing the
Collection Online search facility. The Museum is the first UK arts organisation to instigate a Semantic Web
version of its collection data. The new service brings the British Museum into the ‘linked data’ world and will allow software
developers to produce their own applications that can directly manipulate and reuse the data. It will also allow researchers
and scholars a way to search and find data more precisely and facilitate automatic updates.

Articulo : Seguridad sobre el patrimonio documental en las bibliotecas
Tras un profundo análisis sobre el “estado del arte” en temas de seguridad en bibliotecas y
otros centros de documentación, se ha desarrollado una investigación sólida persiguiendo el
objetivo de esclarecer, analizar, fundamentar y edificar lo que hasta hoy no hay referencias de
que se haya realizado: un Plan de Seguridad completo y riguroso sobre los documentos y otros
valores depositados en las bibliotecas y centros de documentación.
El objetivo principal de la investigación consiste en generar y ampliar diferentes planes de
seguridad con el fin de aplicarlos directamente sobre los centros bibliotecarios y
específicamente sobre los propios acervos bibliográficos disponibles en los mismos escenarios.
Los planes de seguridad y prevención se generan en función de las variadas acciones del hombre, más o menos

deliberadas que, sumadas a incidentes o desastres naturales imprevistos son los que originan los desastres en las
bibliotecas. En estos casos, al ser muchos de los accidentes irrecuperables, se generan pérdidas de identidad cultural y se
merman los conocimientos de civilizaciones pasadas. Es por ello por lo que se hace necesario disponer de planes de
seguridad con el propósito de reducir al máximo la siniestralidad.

Dead Sea Scrolls Go Digital on New Interactive Website Created by the Israel Museum and Google - Israel
The Israel Museum welcomes you to the Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Project, allowing users to examine and explore these
most ancient manuscripts from Second Temple times at a level of detail never before possible. Developed in partnership
with Google, the new website gives users access to searchable, fast-loading, high-resolution images of the scrolls, as well
as short explanatory videos and background information on the texts and their history. The Dead Sea Scrolls, which
include the oldest known biblical manuscripts in existence, offer critical insight into Jewish society in the Land of Israel
during the Second Temple Period, the time of the birth of Christianity and Rabbinic Judaism. Five complete scrolls from the
Israel Museum have been digitized for the project at this stage and are now accessible online.

Europeana's first interactive video: An interactive experience around the story
of an unlikely friendship during the First World War.
Europeana Remix is an interactive platform based on the film ‘Otto & Bernard’. This
short film was produced for the project Europeana Erster Weltkrieg, encouraging
families to share photos, letters and memorabilia of World War 1. Now the film forms
the basis of the Remix initiative, combining leading edge technology (Popcorn.js, the
HTML5 video framework) and a variety of resources from Europeana and across the
web.
Europeana’s work on the First World War sets out to discover untold stories, to share them across borders, and to invite
responses from around Europe as we approach the centenary of the conflict. We encourage people to share ideas, stories,
comments and links on this platform.

VIRTUAL EXHIBITION - Weddings In Eastern Europe - Europeana Connect
In traditional cultures, the wedding was one of the most important and complex of all social
ceremonies, with its own music repertoire. Although wedding ceremonies from Eastern
Europe were essentially similar, local customs varied from region to region, as well as from
country to country. Ceremonies and rituals reflected concerns with longevity, fertility,
prosperity and happiness. Despite inevitable changes wrought by time, globalisation and
industrialisation, remnants of earlier traditions of music and dance are still preserved in
Eastern European wedding ceremonies until today.
Cultural treasures preserved in the sound archives of Hungary, Lithuania, Poland and Slovenia provide a fascinating look
view at vanishing wedding traditions and rituals in Eastern Europe. These photos, videos and sound recordings reconstruct
a musical impression of a former time.

Final section of Book of the Dead on view at Brooklyn Museum - New York - USA
This is one of the most important religious texts of the New Kingdom, in part because it is an
early version of the Book of the Dead, revealing the development of all later ones. The papyrus
is about twenty-five feet long, inscribed on both sides (a rare feature), and contains nearly one
hundred “chapters,” almost half of the total known group of Book of the Dead texts. Several of
the chapters are closer to those found in the Coffin Texts, the collection of funeral texts used in
the previous period…

Lost part of Beethoven masterpiece lives again - Manchester University - Manchester - United Kingdom
A piece of music composed by Beethoven in 1799 and lost for over 200 years has been painstakingly reconstructed by a
Professor of Music at The University of Manchester.
Professor Barry Cooper’s reconstruction of the original slow movement of Beethoven’s String Quartet in G, Opus 18
Number 2, will be heard in something like its original form this week, in a performance by the University’s resident string
quartet Quatuor Danel.
The movement was composed in 1799 but was discarded a year later and lost when it was replaced by a new movement
now known to music lovers across the world.
It is almost certainly the first time, says Professor Cooper, that the piece will have been performed since Beethoven’s day.
Although the original movement is lost, detailed sketches survive for every one of its 74 bars, as was established in 1977
by Sieghard Brandenburg.
It is only since then, however, that it has become clear that Beethoven actually finished the movement and wrote it out at
the time.

Implementing the Incident Command System at the Institutional Level: A Handbook for
Libraries, Archives, Museums, and Other Cultural Institutions
ISBN: 978-0-9829366-2-7
Every cultural repository needs two management structures: the day-to-day, business-as-usual
hierarchy, and a “supercharged” management structure that takes over temporarily during a crisis or
whenever looming events threaten to overwhelm normal business routines. Emergency responders have
used just such a supercharged structure for years: the Incident Command System (ICS).
Since its development in the early 1970s the ICS has been used to tackle a vast array of incidents,
including fires, floods, hurricanes, and earthquakes. The system has demonstrated that it can scale up to handle disasters
that mushroom over large areas and even multiple states. But the ICS was designed to scale down as well as up. Few
practitioners have addressed the question of how to use the ICS to manage an emergency within a single institution—until
now.

Paths to peace: India's voices in UNESCO; 64 years of UNESCO-India co-operation
© UNESCO New Delhi, 2009
ISBN: 9788189218331
UNESCO, an organisation that came up out of the devastation and horror of WW II, is wholly committed to
preserving and ensuring Peace in today’s world order. ‘That since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in
the minds of men that the defences of peace must be constructed’ reads the Preamble to the UNESCO
Constitution. Many a great men have dedicated their lives to maintaining and propagating peace. Amongst
them many Indian luminaries have used UNESCO as a convenient platform for propounding peace.
This Peace is however ever- changing, that is to say, the understanding of it, differs. Each generation throws up new
dimensions to it, and yet it is admirably universal and indispensible. This slim volume puts together the voices of eminent
Indians who advocated different paths to peace at different historical moments during the last six decades.

Memory of the World: General Guidelines to Safeguard Documentary Heritage

Like its original, this document is the result of a team effort. In February 2001, a special UNESCO Working Group met in
Bangkok, Thailand, under the auspices of the South East Asia-Pacific AudioVisual Archive Association (SEAPAVAA), to
establish the parameters of the document and develop its content. The members of the Group – Jon Bing, Richard
Engelhardt, Lygia Maria Guimaraes, Ingunn Kvisterøy and Dato’ Habibah Zon – not only contributed from their differing
geographic and cultural perspectives, but pooled their considerable collective experience of the Memory of the World
Programme. It was my privilege to serve as convenor of the Working Group and to subsequently distil its work and thought
into the text which is before you.

est là et c’est au joueur du 21e de fonder une cité.
Curiosphère, après nous avoir permis de concevoir une ville durant l'antiquité romaine, remet
le couvert avec cette fois l’Europe continentale du Moyen Âge. Les jeunes joueurs sont invités à
bâtir une cité médiévale à la lisière d'un bois et le long d'une rivière. Ils doivent respecter les
différentes époques du Moyen- Age, qui correspondent aux 5 niveaux du jeu. Pour progresser, il faut être capable
d'intégrer les particularités de l'architecture et de habitants.

UK universities win most European Research Council (ERC) grants - United Kingdom
By Jan Petter Myklebust
British institutions will benefit most from the European Research Council's distribution of 480 young researcher grants
worth EUR670 million (US$924 million), just as European Union politicians are calling for research funding to be distributed
more widely to build capacity.
The United Kingdom will receive nearly twice as many grant holders as the second most successful country, Germany.
Cambridge University alone will receive EUR32 million.
The ERC-funded young researchers, who will receive an average of EUR1.4 million each for five years, will be hosted by 21
European countries out of 40 eligible states…

Les festivités du 50e anniversaire de l'Agence universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF) à Montréal : un bilan très
positif
Le 50e anniversaire de l’Agence universitaire de la Francophonie, à Montréal, s’est voulu un moment combinant recherche
et festivités.
Pour débuter, un brunch associatif était organisé à l’hôtel Delta Centre-ville de Montréal réunissant les représentants des
universités membres de l’AUF et l’AUF afin de discuter de L’avenir des coopérations interuniversitaires dans une
perspective de développement.

Colloque en marge du 50e anniversaire de l'AUF (Agence universitaire de la
Francophonie) sur le thème :« Le français, langue de l'innovation »
La langue française doit rester un support actif pour la diffusion des connaissances,
anciennes et nouvelles : pas seulement dans les humanités, mais également dans tous les
secteurs du savoir.
Le développement de la recherche et sa nécessaire visibilité ne doivent pas être
subordonnés à son expression dans une seule langue, pour l’instant l’anglais, devenue pour
un très grand nombre de chercheurs, d’enseignants et d’étudiants, un idiome second, de
simple communication. Ils ont besoin d’une langue qui favorise et encourage les créations conceptuelles et la formulation
de techniques originales, énonçables dans l’idiome utilisé depuis les premiers enseignements scolaires, offrant ainsi des
moyens d’expressivité précise.

The European Commission announced on Tuesday that EUR66 million (US$90 million) will be allocated to extending the
Erasmus Mundus higher education programme to support European Neighbourhood countries, in response to the Arab
Spring.
The initiative is aimed at achieving better understanding and mutual enrichment between the European Union and

What role for the EU in an era of austerity?
How does the recession affect higher education in Europe and what impact will it have in the future? Public funding
represents on average 75% of European universities' income. The majority of European Union member states have
announced budget cuts in higher education. France and Germany have decided to invest in higher education. The Nordic
countries remain unaffected.
Budgetary cuts no doubt appear significant. But it is difficult to get a full measure of their magnitude without geographic
and longitudinal comparisons. For example, 70% of states in the US have experienced cuts in public spending allocated to
higher education, in comparison to 66% in the European Union…

Cuts and culture hinder Bologna process - Spain
University leaders are warning that government funding cuts and inflexible policies are distorting Spain's attempts to
implement the Bologna Treaty, which seeks to set common academic standards and encourage greater student and staff
mobility across Europe.
One vice- chancellor said universities were being forced to implement the Bologna process 'Spanish style', due to spending
cuts and lack of funding for research. Other academics cited the enforcement of degree durations and cultural differences
as added factors.

Hamburg to scrap tuition fees - Germany
By Michael Gardner
The City of Hamburg plans to do away with tuition fees as of the 2012 winter semester. This would leave Germany with
just two of its 16 federal states generally charging fees in public-funded higher education.
The Hanseatic City State of Hamburg has been ruled by a Social Democrat government since March this year.
With North Rhine-Westphalia no longer charging fees this winter semester and Baden-Württemberg's new Green-Social
Democrat government set to phase out fees, Hamburg's new policy would make Bavaria and Lower Saxony the last
German states still retaining fees for all students…

The future of international student mobility
By Rahul Choudaha
International student mobility in the first decade of the 21st century has been transformed by two major external events,
9/11 and the recession of 2008. Today the rationale for international student recruitment has shifted from attracting talent
to make the student body more diverse, to seeking an additional source of revenue.
Recruitment practices have been evolving and responding to this new competitive landscape, as can be seen in the
increasing number of commercial entities offering recruitment services ranging from agents to websites.

Progressing the Regional Programme: Peer-review of the educational material for HISTORIANA - Third
regional seminar - Becici (Montenegro) 25-27 November 2011
Representatives from all Former Yugoslavia, as well as contributors from Finland and Switzerland will actively engage
during the seminar. The seminar is co-organised with the History Teachers Association of Montenegro (HIPMONT), and will
focus on the peer-review of the drafts of 13 modules on selected sensitive and controversial history of 1900-1945,
discussing and sharing the preparation of lesson materials for inclusion in the Historiana framework, as well as sharing and
reflection on expertise involving the learning and teaching of sensitive and controversial issues.
Furthermore, the Regional Seminar will be a good opportunity to network, to build the capacity of the Albanian, Bosnian,
Croatian, Kosovar, Macedonian, Montenegrin, Serbian and Slovenian History Teachers Associations, as well as the overall
regional capacity and the capacity of individual professionals and to present the current state of history education issues of
the countries of Former Yugoslavia. The programme will be made available soon. Would you like to join the seminar as

Connecting Europe Through History: Experiences and Perceptions of Migrations in Europe
On the 21st of March in 2010 a coach was taking 35 European history teachers from Nijmegen in
Netherlands to Kleve in Germany. Suddenly, all the mobile phones started bleeping. The group – taking
part in a year-long programme investigating migration teaching – had crossed a border.
For most, this was a normal part of being a European. For many others this was a special moment – they
were in a new borderless world. As Europe changes, the question before
history teachers, researchers, academics, policy-makers, and students, was could their teaching methods
also embrace new ideas and new methods – and move from national frameworks to a more global one.

fossils from the dawning age of dinosaurs and petroglyphs left by American Indian tribes who once lived in
eastern Arizona.
The National Park Service secured the first major private ranch within the Petrified Forest National Park
boundaries on Thursday, capping off negotiations that began years ago with the help of a conservation
group. Scientists say they're eager to explore the more than 26,000 acres that have remained largely
untouched and discover even more treasures.

Ecotourism Can Play Vital Role In Maintaining Healthy Forests
The continuing boom in ecotourism has the potential to save endangered forests or destroy them, depending on how
effectively tourism expansion is managed, an international partnership for forest conservation and improvement cautioned
today.
The Collaborative Partnership on Forests (CPF), comprising 14 international organizations and secretariats, including FAO,
issued its view on the relationship between ecotourism and forestry today as the world celebrates the World Tourism Day
and the International Year of Forests.

Save the Sinharaja Rainforest Campaign - Sri Lanka
Sinharaja Forest Reserve is considered one of the most important natural habitats in Sri Lanka.
This majestic rainforest was deemed an International Man and Biosphere Reserve in 1978 and
deservedly designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1989. The forest offers a huge
diversity of species both flora and fauna with a large proportion of those being indigenous to
the country and some more specifically endemic to Sinharaja itself.

El Fondo de Fideicomiso Yasuni Ishpingo Tambococha
Tiputini (ITT) ha sido establecido para recibir
contribuciones de una amplia gama de colaboradores
que apoyan la decisión histórica de Ecuador de
renunciar de manera permanente la extracción de los
yacimientos de petróleo Yasuní ITT (aproximadamente 846 millones de barriles), lo que permitirá a Ecuador hacer frente a
los retos del cambio climático y del desarrollo sustentable al cambiar la matriz energética del país a través de inversión en
proyectos energéticos renovables inclusivos ambientalmente amigable. Esta decisión histórica evitará la emisión de 407
millones de toneladas métricas de dióxido de carbono (CO2) que resultaría de la quema de esos combustibles fósiles,
protegeriendo una de las regiones más biodiversas del mundo y manteniendo el nivel de vida de los pueblos indígenas de
la zona. Ecuador solicita a los contribuyentes compensar el 50 por ciento de los ingresos a los que está renunciando, por
un valor de 3,6 billones de dólares (durante un periodo de 13 años), saldando así su contribución a los bienes globales.

Europeana's first interactive video: An interactive experience around the story
of an unlikely friendship during the First World War.
Europeana Remix is an interactive platform based on the film ‘Otto & Bernard’. This
short film was produced for the project Europeana Erster Weltkrieg, encouraging
families to share photos, letters and memorabilia of World War 1. Now the film forms
the basis of the Remix initiative, combining leading edge technology (Popcorn.js, the
HTML5 video framework) and a variety of resources from Europeana and across the
web.
Europeana’s work on the First World War sets out to discover untold stories, to share them across borders, and to invite
responses from around Europe as we approach the centenary of the conflict. We encourage people to share ideas, stories,
comments and links on this platform.

Researchers from the University of Alberta report feathers in amber reveal dinosaur diversity - Edmonton Alberta - Canada
By Ryan C. McKellar1, Brian D. E. Chatterton, Alexander P. Wolfe and Philip J. Currie
The fossil record of early feathers has relied on carbonized compressions that lack fine structural detail. Specimens in
amber are preserved in greater detail, but they are rare. Late Cretaceous coal-rich strata from western Canada provide the
richest and most diverse Mesozoic feather assemblage yet reported from amber. The fossils include primitive structures
closely matching the protofeathers of nonavian dinosaurs, offering new insights into their structure and function. Additional
derived morphologies confirm that plumage specialized for flight and underwater diving had evolved in Late Cretaceous
birds. Because amber preserves feather structure and pigmentation in unmatched detail, these fossils provide novel

son muchas veces considerados espacios ideales . Sin embargo en el momento de abordar la cuestión de la seguridad , el
tema se vuelve complejo por los propios condicionamientos de estas instituciones para cumplir tanto con la preservación
como con los servicios que deben brindar.
Cuando nos referimos a la seguridad en los museos, los primeros temas que surgen son robo e incendio. E inmediatamente
pensamos en las vitrinas , en los cerramientos , en los materiales combustibles , en los depósitos. Sin embargo , la

Repatriation of the Wall Paintings of Agios Themonianos, Cyprus - Menil Collection
- Houston - Texas - USA
The wall paintings, dating to the 13th/14th century, were once part of the interior
decoration of the Church of Agios Euphemianos (also known as Agios Themonianos), in
currently occupied Lysi. In the fragments of the wall paintings preserved on the dome is
depicted Christ Pantocrator, surrounded by a frieze of angels as well as the Preparation of
the Throne attended by the Mother of God and St. John the Baptist. In the conch of the apse
the wall paintings depict the Mother of God attended by the Archangels Michael and Gabriel.
In 1972/1973, the Department of Antiquities carried out conservation of the wall paintings. Following 1974, the wall
paintings were violently removed by the Turkish invaders and eventually ended up in the possession of the Menil
Foundation.

Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the U.S. Attorney's Office for

Small Wonder, Wilmington: This city in the second-smallest state boasts a huge trove
of historic landmarks - Wilmington - Delaware - USA
Every so often, a new city comes along to impress me, making me wonder: Where have you
been all my life?
That was my reaction to Wilmington, Del., a historic city I'd often seen from Amtrak or the
interstate but always passed through. Until recently, that is, when growing curiosity finally
lured me into town.
The largest city in the second-smallest state, Wilmington grew from a Swedish settlement in
1638 to an industrial port that made flour, textiles, railroad cars, ships—and gunpowder, which transformed a plucky clan
of French immigrants called the du Ponts into one of America's foremost families. They were to have an enormous
influence on the city's economy and culture.

design a master plan and home designs for the secret site planned by the U.S. Federal

El Puente Bac de Roda está situado en el barrio de Sant Marti y comunica las calles
Bac de Roda y Felipe II, permitiendo el paso de automóviles y viandantes por encima
del ferrocarril. Construido en 1984, es una de las primeras obras con las que
comenzó a ganar relevancia internacional el hoy legendario arquitecto e ingeniero
civil Santiago Calatrava, Premio Nacional de Arquitectura 2007, Premio Príncipe de
Asturias de las Artes en 1999 y Doctor Honoris Causa 12 veces. El estilo del puente
resalta las estructuras de contención mostrando la labor de ingeniería junto a la estética arquitectónica. Para que puedas

National Parliament Principality of Liechtenstein - Hansjoerg Goeritz
Architekturstudio - 2008 - Vaduz - Liechtenstein
Following the success of the Hansjörg Göritz Architekturstudio in an international European
competition of the year 2000, seven years of planning and implementation are now completed.
Today the built exterior and interior spaces manifest not only his interpretation of democratic
separation of powers within the Alamannic cultural region of the Alps’ Rhine River valley. They
also stand for a conscious understanding of an architecture of urban contiguity, whereby the
original masterplan of Luigi Snozzi has been newly reinterpreted.
At the same time the pure and meticulous materialization of the new context rejects generic easy conventions, and strive
for an architecture of space and timelessness. It is this very elementary and sustainably durable quality that makes use of
non-renewable resources according to rigorous Minergy- Standards. In the plenum the sublime art of Sabine Laidig creates
a synthesis with this space creation of simplicity.

En Londres construyen el puente solar más largo del mundo (Reino Unido)
Muchos auguran que una nueva revolución industrial está acercándose: la de las
energías renovables. Si todo el mundo empieza a utilizar las renovables en procesos
industriales y fabriles, en la producción de energía eléctrica, en la calefacción de los
hogares, de pronto tendremos un mundo lleno de energía sustentable. Claro que
todavía no estamos muy cerca, pero empezar a instalar monumentos, puede potenciar
el proceso. Con esa idea, y también la de producir un montón de electricidad, en
Londres se está instalando un largo puente repleto de paneles solares en su techo.

My Aleppo
Beyond the Arab world Aleppo is not perceived as a "metropolis" -at the same time, though, the city
with a five thousand year old history is one of the world's oldest cities. In this way, this volume is to
be understood as a special study about the development of the term metropolis. At the end of the
20th century, Aleppo was limited with its population of 20,000 inhabitants to the city center, which
was named a World Heritage site by the UNESCO. Today, the city of almost three million people is
the industrial and commercial capital of Syria, where, in a fascinating way, tradition and modernity,
and East and West meet.

In the planning and development of the cultural sphere on the city scale and the implementation of cultural projects and
programs, in addition to local governments and civil society, the participation of other public and private institutions, as
well as the city inhabitants is important in terms of devising plans with long term applicability and durable impact, and also
for inhabitants to espouse the process. Local Cultural Policies Handbook: Steps, Tools and Case Studies was compiled to
this end, to underline this priority, and contribute to discussions around local cultural policies in Turkey by presenting case
studies of plans and projects developed in a participatory and inclusive manner.

Heritage-based urban conservation is a rather young field of research and practice. In Switzerland, a

Le ciel devient plus proche de Moscou - Réouverture du Planétarium de Moscou - Fédération de Russie
Après 17 ans de reconstruction, le planétarium de Moscou rouvre ses portes aux visiteurs. Lieu emblématique de la

Le planétarium de Moscou, le plus ancien de la Russie, a été inauguré le 5 novembre 1929. Les autorités de la capitale

Water History for our Times republished - International Hydrological Programme
© UNESCO
By Fekri Hassan
This current book is the second IHP essay on water history. It draws on and accompanies the first volume
of the HWC series that will appear in autumn 2011, Water History and Humanity, edited by Vernon
Scarborough. Drawing from that volume’s more than forty outstanding chapters, extensive references,
including from conferences of the International Water History Association and from his lifelong intellectual
and academic commitment to water history, Fekri Hassan has formulated the co-evolutionary theory of the
historical transformations of water management that he describes in this truly remarkable essay.
We are convinced that this is not only an important contribution to a better understanding of the interaction of civilizations
with water today, but will also help to guide our actions toward the future.

La dernière classe d'inuit - Université Laval. City of Québec, Québec (Canada)
Par Renée Larochelle
Le 16 décembre prochain, Louis-Jacques Dorais, professeur au Département d’anthropologie
et spécialiste de la langue inuite, donnera son dernier cours avant de prendre sa retraite, lui
qui a enseigné au Département pendant presque 40 ans. Il ne pourra malheureusement pas
passer le flambeau à un autre enseignant puisqu’il est pratiquement le seul à enseigner
cette langue au Québec. «Le cours ne disparaît pas à cause d’un manque d’intérêt des
étudiants, mais parce que la relève en la matière est inexistante, explique Louis-Jacques
Dorais. Il y a bien quelques Inuits à Québec, mais ils ne possèdent aucune formation pour enseigner la langue.» À sa
connaissance, l’inuit n’est pas enseigné ailleurs au Québec qu’à l’Université Laval. «Il y a déjà eu – ou il y a peut-être
encore – des cours qui sont offerts à Ottawa, ainsi qu’à Iqaluit, la capitale du Nunavut, souligne ce docteur en sémantique
inuite. Sinon, il faut aller à Paris, où l’Institut des langues et civilisations orientales offre un programme de formation en
langue et culture inuites.»

VIRTUAL EXHIBITION - Weddings In Eastern Europe - Europeana Connect
In traditional cultures, the wedding was one of the most important and complex of all social
ceremonies, with its own music repertoire. Although wedding ceremonies from Eastern
Europe were essentially similar, local customs varied from region to region, as well as from
country to country. Ceremonies and rituals reflected concerns with longevity, fertility,
prosperity and happiness. Despite inevitable changes wrought by time, globalisation and
industrialisation, remnants of earlier traditions of music and dance are still preserved in
Eastern European wedding ceremonies until today.
Cultural treasures preserved in the sound archives of Hungary, Lithuania, Poland and Slovenia provide a fascinating look
view at vanishing wedding traditions and rituals in Eastern Europe. These photos, videos and sound recordings reconstruct
a musical impression of a former time.

La dernière classe d'inuit - Université Laval. City of Québec, Québec (Canada)
Par Renée Larochelle
Le 16 décembre prochain, Louis-Jacques Dorais, professeur au Département d’anthropologie
et spécialiste de la langue inuite, donnera son dernier cours avant de prendre sa retraite, lui
qui a enseigné au Département pendant presque 40 ans. Il ne pourra malheureusement pas
passer le flambeau à un autre enseignant puisqu’il est pratiquement le seul à enseigner
cette langue au Québec. «Le cours ne disparaît pas à cause d’un manque d’intérêt des
étudiants, mais parce que la relève en la matière est inexistante, explique Louis-Jacques
Dorais. Il y a bien quelques Inuits à Québec, mais ils ne possèdent aucune formation pour enseigner la langue.» À sa
connaissance, l’inuit n’est pas enseigné ailleurs au Québec qu’à l’Université Laval. «Il y a déjà eu – ou il y a peut-être
encore – des cours qui sont offerts à Ottawa, ainsi qu’à Iqaluit, la capitale du Nunavut, souligne ce docteur en sémantique
inuite. Sinon, il faut aller à Paris, où l’Institut des langues et civilisations orientales offre un programme de formation en
langue et culture inuites.»

Élan-Afrique : consolider le francais en développant les langues africaines
Face aux difficultés d'apprentissage du français dans les écoles des Etats francophones d'Afrique et aux revendications en
faveur des langues nationales, une initiative qui touche déjà 8 états promeut la scolarisation bilingue. Mais comment
choisir la langue nationale, dans des pays où se côtoient parfois plusieurs dizaines de langues ? Et le français est-il une
langue d'ouverture, ou la manifestation d'une époque à jamais révolue ?

Colloque en marge du 50e anniversaire de l'AUF (Agence universitaire de la
Francophonie) sur le thème :« Le français, langue de l'innovation »
La langue française doit rester un support actif pour la diffusion des connaissances,
anciennes et nouvelles : pas seulement dans les humanités, mais également dans tous les
secteurs du savoir.
Le développement de la recherche et sa nécessaire visibilité ne doivent pas être
subordonnés à son expression dans une seule langue, pour l’instant l’anglais, devenue pour
un très grand nombre de chercheurs, d’enseignants et d’étudiants, un idiome second, de
simple communication. Ils ont besoin d’une langue qui favorise et encourage les créations conceptuelles et la formulation
de techniques originales, énonçables dans l’idiome utilisé depuis les premiers enseignements scolaires, offrant ainsi des
moyens d’expressivité précise.

Yao Ming Calls for a Shark Fin Ban in China
International conservation organization WildAid, Chinese basketball star and WildAid Ambassador, Yao Ming, and leading
Chinese entrepreneur Zhang Yue have joined forces with British entrepreneur, Sir Richard Branson and his non-profit
foundation Virgin Unite, in a global campaign to save sharks. Branson and Yao filmed public service announcements in
support of WildAid’s shark campaign drawing attention to the increasing demand for shark fin soup and the devastating
effect this demand is having on global shark populations. The messages will broadcast across national and international
media via WildAid’s pro-bono media network, beginning today and are available at wildaid.org/sharks…

Une nouvelle espèce de crustacé en Méditerranée : Caprella tavolarensis
Parfois, les découvertes se font là où on les attend le moins... A l'image de Caprella tavolarensis, une nouvelle espèce de
crustacé amphipode, qui a récemment été trouvée par Nicolas Sturaro, chercheur du Laboratoire d'Océanologie de
l'Université de Liège. Cette espèce a été découverte dans le cadre de son projet de recherche qui n'a pas pour objectif de
découvrir de nouvelles espèces mais d'étudier le rôle écologique des zones protégées en mer Méditerranée.

TiHo ( Fondation de l'école vétérinaire de Hanovre) fonde un nouvel institut de recherche sur les animaux
sauvages - Hanovre - Allemagne
La Fondation de l'école vétérinaire de Hanovre (TiHo) a décidé d'élargir son spectre de recherche en se lançant dans l'étude
approfondie de la faune sauvage. Depuis longtemps déjà les scientifiques de la TiHo portent leur attention sur les animaux
terrestres non domestiqués observés dans la région (sangliers, perdrix, chats sauvages...). Désormais ils se concentrent
également sur les mammifères marins tels les phoques et les marsouins. Afin de fusionner ces deux domaines de
recherche, la TiHo fonde un nouvel institut pour étudier la faune sauvage terrestre et marine qui sera dirigé par Ursula
Siebert. Les recherches sur les mammifères marins s'effectueront dans la nouvelle annexe de la TiHo située dans la ville de
Büsum dans le Land de Schleswig-Holstein.

Réunion autour du programme de recherche BIOACID sur l'acidification des océans - Brême - Allemagne (2630 septembre 2011)
Plus de 100 chercheurs spécialisés dans la recherche marine vont se rencontrer du 26 au 30 septembre à l'Université de
Brême. Le thème abordé sera l'augmentation du dioxyde de carbone dans l'atmosphère qui non seulement entraîne une
augmentation des températures mais également du taux d'acidité des océans. L'importance de ce phénomène et les fortes
conséquences qui en découlent ont commencé à retenir l'attention des spécialistes depuis quelques années déjà. Ils
craignent qu'une telle acidification entraîne une diminution de la résistance des récifs coralliens et autres mollusques
présentant un squelette ou une coquille calcaire. Le programme national de recherche BIOACID regroupe 14 instituts
partenaires ainsi que diverses entreprises travaillant dans le domaine de la technologie des capteurs. Sous l'égide de
BIOACID, se sont des biologistes, des chimistes et des physiciens experts du domaine marin, ainsi que des biologistes
moléculaires, paléontologues et mathématiciens qui discuteront de leurs nouvelles découvertes dans le domaine de
l'acidification des océans et d'informer leurs collègues sur les nouvelles techniques de mesures développées.

Biodiversidad Marina y de Costas
Après l'extinction qui a marqué la fin de l'ère primaire, il y a 252,6 millions
d'années, les récifs à animaux multicellulaires ont mis moins de deux millions
d'années pour réapparaître et se diversifier. Jusqu'à présent, on pensait que ce
temps de récupération avait été d’une dizaine de millions d'années. Ces résultats
ont été obtenus par une équipe internationale menée par quatre chercheurs
français du laboratoire Biogéosciences (CNRS/Université de Bourgogne) et du Laboratoire de géologie de Lyon : Terre,
planètes et environnement (CNRS/Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1/ENS Lyon). Ils seront publiés le 1er octobre dans la

en las aguas antárticas
Los científicos del Algalita Marine Research Foundation, Long Beach, California, en
colaboración con Tara Expeditions, dan a conocer su descubrimiento de una importante
contaminación por plástico en las aguas antárticas, 9 meses después de la navegación de
Tara en la Antártida como parte de la expedición Tara Oceans. Todas las muestras recogidas
en esta campaña en el Océano Antártico contenían plástico, desde 956 hasta 42826
fragmentos de plástico por kilómetro cuadrado alrededor de las estaciones de muestreo. Las
muestras fueron tomadas en capas de la superficie del océano y demuestran que este tipo de contaminación es ahora
detectable en todos los rincones del planeta.

Attaque de requin à La Réunion : tuer dix requins ne résoudra pas le problème
En réponse à l’attaque mortelle survenue lundi, la préfecture a ordonné le «
prélèvement » de dix requins. Pour FNE et son association réunionnaise la SREPEN, la
pêche punitive n’est pas la solution.
Sur les côtes de la Réunion, conformément à la décision du préfet, la chasse est
ouverte. Or on sait par expérience que les pêches préventives ou punitives, peu
importe le nom qu'on leur donne, ne sont en aucun cas une solution permettant de
protéger efficacement les usagers de la mer du « risque requin ». Par ailleurs, les
requins sont déjà l’objet de captures mal maîtrisées.

Interactive Dig Johnson's Island: Unlocking a Civil War Prison - Ohio - USA
Join archaeologist David Bush beyond the "dead line" at Johnson's Island, Ohio. This year,
our investigations are centered on Block 8 within the Prison Compound.
ARCHAEOLOGY joined Bush and his crew in 2002 as they headed into the field to excavate
barracks that once housed Confederate POWs. We returned to Johnson’s Island in 2006,
2007, and 2008 to follow investigations of the prison hospital, where work continues in
2009.
David Bush joined Heidelberg College’s Center for Historic and Military Archaeology in
1998 to focus exclusively on the Johnson’s Island Prisoner of War Depot. He is also chairman of the Friends and
Descendents of Johnson’s Island, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of this National Historic Landmark

Odyssey Confirms Discovery of SS Gairsoppa Shipwreck. Tampa, Florida (USA)
Odyssey Marine Exploration, Inc. (Nasdaq:OMEX) announced today that it has confirmed the identity and location of the
shipwreck site of the SS Gairsoppa nearly 4,700 meters below the surface of the North Atlantic, approximately 300 miles
off the coast of Ireland in international waters. The SS Gairsoppa was a 412-foot steel-hulled British cargo ship that was
torpedoed by a German U-boat in February 1941 while enlisted in the service of the United Kingdom (UK) Ministry of War
Transport. Contemporary research and official documents indicate that the ship was carrying £600,000 (1941 value) or 7
Million total ounces of silver, including over 3 Million ounces of private silver bullion insured by the UK government which
would make it the largest known precious metal cargo ever recovered from the sea. In 2010, the UK Government
Department for Transport awarded Odyssey, through a competitive tender process, the exclusive salvage contract for the
cargo of the SS Gairsoppa. Under the salvage agreement Odyssey will retain 80% of the net salved value of the silver
bullion recovered under the contract.

Fortress of Fortezza - Markus Scherer with Walter Dietl - 2009 - Franzensfeste - Italy
“Begun under Francis I in the year 1833 – completed by Ferdinand I in the year 1838”, reads the Latin
inscription over the gate of the fortress. In just five years, over 6,000 workers and soldiers built a blocking
position at one of the narrowest points in the Eisack valley. It has the dimensions of a small town and, with
a surface area of 20 hectares, is the largest fortification in the Alpine region. With this monumental
defensive work the Habsburgs hoped to halt the advance of the revolutionary changes provoked by the
French revolution. Designed by regimental engineer Franz von Scholl, it consists of three autonomous
sections: the upper, middle and lower fortress levels. It has clear and simple classicist lines; it is functional
and impregnable. As the military threat did not materialize in the decades following its construction, however, the fortress
rapidly lost its importance. By the end of the 19th century it was merely used as a powder depot. In 1918 Franzensfeste
came under Italian rule and was used by the army until 2003.

Saturday’s Grand Opening concluded a week of opening festivities. Guest of honor

Deputy Mayor Eric van der Burg called it “a true tour de force” that Het Scheepvaartmuseum was the last big Amsterdam

should be proud of a museum "that reflects the Dutch maritime history in every way possible”.

AD Classics: The Kreuzberg Tower - John Hejduk - 1988 - Berlin - Germany
In April of 2010 the architecture community gathered to protect one of the many at risk postmodern buildings of the
1980s. The new owners of the Kreuzberg Tower by John Hejduk drew negative attention from notable architects when they
began altering the building’s façade. The Kreuzberg Tower’s façade has now been restored, and the attention it received
reflects on its postmodern history, and the prominence of its important designer.

AD Classics: Villa Tugendhat - Mies van der Rohe - 1930 - Brno - Czech Republic
The Villa Tugendhat was commissioned by the wealthy newlyweds Grete & Fritz Tugendhat, a Jewish couple with family
money from textile manufacturing companies in Brno. The couple met Mies van der Rohe in Berlin in 1927, and was
already impressed by his design for the Zehlendorf house of Edward Fuchs. As fans of spacious homes with simple forms,
Mies’ free plan method was perfect for the Tugendhats’ taste; however, he was not their only interest in an architect for
their own home. They originally confronted Brno’s foremost modern architect at the time, Arnost Wiesner, but after visiting
various projects by each architect, the Tugendhats ultimately went with Mies.

AD Classics: Armenian Opera Theater - Alexander Tamanian - 1930-1953 - Yerevan - Armenia
Opened in 1933 and completed in its current state in 1953, the Armenian Opera Theater was designed by Armenian
architect Alexander Tamanian. The theater is one of Tamanian’s most profilic architectural works, which include a plethora
of Armenian architectural icons such as his hydroelectric station (1926), Republic Square (1926–1941) and many others.
The Opera Theater is located in Armenia’s capital city of Yerevan and functions as the primary performance hall in the city,
containing the Aram Khatchaturian concert hall, the National Theatre of Opera and the Alexander Spendiarian ballet. Sited
adjacent to Tamanian’s Republic Square and Cascade Stairwell, this magnificent structure is centrally located within
Yerevan proper and one of the most visible structures in the country.

AD Classics: Bagsværd Church - Jørn Utzon - 1968-1976 - Bagsværd - Denmark
The Bagsværd Church by Jørn Utzon was completed in 1976. Though not his most famous work, the church is an example
of the architect’s inventive work at a different scale. Utzon designed the church with an unassuming exterior that merely
hints at the stirring forms he created inside.The Bagsværd Church was Utzon’s first work after returning to Denmark from
Austrailia and the Sydney Opera House, which he designed. It is located on the northern outskirts of Copenhagen in a
suburban setting. The church stands almost unassuming as a simple, modern structure amidst birch trees, with its back to
a local street.

surrounding natural habitat of over 45 hectares of land containing endangered species of flora and fauna. This uniquely
valuable campus is now in danger and is about to disappear. We are collecting petition signatures on the web to protest
the demolition of the campus, which is already in progress. We appeal to the following authorities to STOP and
RECONSIDER the renovation project at once. Ministry of the Environment. Ministry of Education,Culture, Sports, Science &

Neubau Depot und Verwaltung RUHR MUSEUM - Scheidt Kasprusch Architekten - 2010
- Zollverein - Essen - Germany
An extreme restraint for all structural addition within the context of the world heritage – the
colliery of Zollverein with all architectural qualities and inestimable historic values – is
indicated. The course of the design for the new depot of the Ruhr Museum was based on
serenity and mastery.
Clear geometry and decreased material selection were ways and methods for the design. On
the one hand, the building is positioned into the correct context, on the other hand it abstracts
and sublimates this context.

AD Classics: Xanadu House - Roy Mason - 1983 - Kissimmee - Florida - USA
Heralded as “House of the Future”, the Xanadu House by Roy Mason is a domed structure
constructed completely form insulating polyurethane foam. The house was appropriately
built less than 30 miles away from Disney World’s “Land of Tomorrow” Epcot Center and the
two were opened only a few months apart.
The Xanadu House Project consisted of three show homes throughout the United States; the
other two were constructed in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin and Gatlinburg, Tennessee. The
point of the homes was to show the general public that this innovative structure could
provide a low cost modern home that could be built quickly and easily. The Kissimmee House was the most popular,
partially because of its size but also because of its prime location. At its high point the house was attracting 1000 visitors
per day.

AD Classics: Yale Center for British Art - Louis Kahn - 1974 - New Haven Connecticut - USA
Across the street from Louis Kahn’s first significant piece of architecture stands his last. The
Yale Center for British Art was completed in 1974, the year of Kahn’s death and 23 years
after its neighbor, The Yale University Art Gallery was finished. A style and theoretical
change throughout a career is visible in one scene.
Unlike most galleries, the design prompt for the Yale’s British Art Gallery called for very
specific needs. Being part of an educational institution the agenda called for several learning
oriented spaces. The program consisted of stipulations for exhibition space and storage space for paintings, sculpture,
drawings and prints; a rare book collection; a research library; a photograph archive; an auditorium; classrooms;
workshops and offices; and conservation facilities.

AD Classics: David S. Ingalls Skating Rink - Eero Saarinen - 1958 - New Haven Connecticut - USA
Built in 1958, the David S Ingalls Skating Rink is characterized by a sweeping domed roof, was
designed by Yale graduate Eero Saarinen and is lovingly known as the Yale whale. This hockey
rink contains a span 200 feet long by 85 feet wide and does so with a natural sense of flow and
polish.
Though the rink is seemingly heavy and brutal it is truly a tensile structure. The main structure
comes from a 290 foot long central arched backbone of reinforced concrete. From this central
support the timber roof is “hung” on a cable net structure which gives it the signature double curve. Further cables running
from the central arch to the outer edges of the building help stabilize the structure against wind loads.

AD Classics: Cosmic Rays Pavilion - Felix Candela - 1951 - Mexico City - Mexico
The Cosmic Rays Pavilion represents one of the first experiments with parabolic structures.
The double curved structure is made of a very thin layer of concrete, exemplifying its
structural and design capabilities. These mathematically complex structures define the
popular architecture of the pavilion’s designer Felix Candela.
Measuring 40 feet by 35 feet the pavilion, the structure contains two laboratory spaces
specializing in the measurement of cosmic rays and nuclear disintegration for the

AD Classics: Chandigarh Secretariat - Le Corbusier - 1951-1962 - Chandigarh India
Taking over from Albert Mayer, Le Corbusier produced a plan for Chandigarh on the foothills
of the Himalayas that conformed to the modern city planning principles of Congrès
International d’Architecture Moderne (CIAM), in terms of division of urban function, an
anthropomorphic plan form, and a hierarchy of road and pedestrian networks, Inherently,
the Secretariat building is the largest edifice in the Capitol Complex and is the headquarters
of both the Punjab and Haryana governments.

Le Corbusier’s plan for the capitol consisted of four buildings (or “edifices”) and six monuments arranged on a single site,
loosely conceptualized as three interlocking squares. Only three of these four buildings were ever realized (the High Court,
the Legislative Assembly, and the Secretariat) and were designed to represent the major functions of democracy — the
fourth building, the Governor’s Palace, was never built.

NEWS - AD Classics: Shrine of the Book - Armand Phillip Bartos and Frederick John
Kiesler - 1965 - Jerusalem - Israel
The Shrine of the Book (Hebrew: ‫רפסה לכיה‬‎ Heikhal HaSefer) is a wing of the Israel Musem
near Givat Ram in Jerusalem, constructed in 1965. The building houses the Dead Sea Scrolls,
discovered between 1947 and 1956 in and around the Wadi Qurman.
The building was the result of an elaborate seven-year planning process funded by the
family of David Samuel Gottesman, a Hungarian philanthropist who purchased the scrolls as
a gift to the newly founded state of Israel. One architect, American
philanthropist-cum-designer Armand Phillip Bartos, was chosed because he was married to Gottesman’s daughter. The
other appointed architect, Frederick John Kiesler, had previously recieved funding from Gottesman to install the “Endless
house” at the Museum of Modern Art. The architectural team also included the well-connected Gezer Heller, brother-in-law
to Ibbi Hammer, future chief banker for the State of Israel and daughter of the Chief Rabbi of Budapest. Israelis objected
to the choice of non-Israeli architects, especially Kiesler.

AD Classics: Bavinger House - Bruce Goff - 1950-1955 - Norman - Oklahoma - USA
The mid-century modern movement found an odd yet welcoming home in the small town of
Norman, Oklahoma. One of its most notable contributors was organic aficionado Bruce Goff.
Goff came to popularity in the 1940’s as both instructor and practitioner of his eclectic brand of
architecture. Goff’s 1950′s Bavinger House is seen by many as the crowning achievement of his
extensive body of work.
The Bavinger House put a new twist on the naturalist modernism of Goff’s contemporaries.
Where Wright used flat planes and conventional floor plans, Goff introduced distinctive floor
plans, mixing materiality with eccentric spaces to produce a desired effect.

AD Classics: Koshino House - Tadao Ando - 1980-1984 - Ashiya - Hyogo - Japan
Tadao Ando’s design for the Koshino House features two parallel concrete rectangular confines.
The forms are partially buried into the sloping ground of a national park and become a
compositional addition to the landscape. Placed carefully as to not disrupt the pre-existing trees
on the site, the structure responds to the adjacent ecosystem while the concrete forms address
a more general nature through a playful manipulation of light. More about the Koshino House
after the break.
The northern volume consists of a two-storey height containing a double height living room, a
kitchen and a dining room on the first floor with the master bedroom and a study on the second floor. The southern mass
then consists of six linearly organized children’s bedrooms, a bathroom and a lobby. Connecting the two spaces is a below
grade tunnel that lies beneath the exterior stairs of the courtyard.

Museum Closure Exposes Financial Risk of Signature Architecture - American Folk Art Museum New York - New York State - USA
NEW YORK–Although the American Folk Art Museum has avoided dissolution thanks to a cash infusion
from trustees and the Ford Foundation, the institution’s ongoing financial troubles raise difficult questions
about the relationship between signature architecture and cultural capital.
The museum’s former home on 53rd Street opened in 2001 after a renovation by Billie Tsien and Tod
Williams. To finance the construction, the museum borrowed $32 million by issuing bonds through the
city’s Trust for Cultural Resources, a public benefit corporation that helps cultural institutions borrow
money for capital projects. The payments on the bonds were significant, about $3 million a year, and in 2009, the museum
defaulted on the debt.
http://universidadypatrimonio.net/esp/noticias/newsletter_72/23_2011.html (3 de 7) [14/10/2011 20:04:57]
Patrimonio Moderno y Contemporáneo
Despite early optimism, the American Folk Art Museum’s renovation project did not raise attendance or donations to the
levels needed. Last year, as it ran a nearly $4 million deficit, the museum raised just $3.3 million from donors. As we
reported in May, the museum was forced to sell its building on West 53rd Street to the Museum of Modern Art to pay off
the debt. Before opening, consultants predicted the building would draw 255,000 visitors a year by 2005. In 2011, the
museum only attracted the equivalent of 160,000 per year.

Libeskind’s extension to the Denver Art Museum. But when Renzo Piano made his American
debut with the Menil Collection 25 years ago, the result was far from spectacle, but rather
more supplementary to an already established neighborhood scale.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Historic Park Inn Restored - Mason City - Iowa - USA
The restoration of The Historic Park Inn Hotel marks the culmination of efforts begun in
the 1970’s. The property was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972
and various attempts at renovation were made over the years.
The $18.5 million restoration has restored the building to its 1910 appearance and into a
27-room boutique hotel. Public spaces in the hotel have also been restored, with period
appropriate furnishings throughout the hotel.
The Historic Park Inn Hotel is a perfect example of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie School
design and the only commercial structure in the state of Iowa.

AD Classics: Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation - Ruy Jervis d'Athouguia, Pedro Cid and
Alberto Pessoa - 1959-1969 - Lisbon - Portugal
The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and Museum is one of the less well known architectural
gems in Portugal. The buildings are part of their own isolated campus in Palhavã, in the center
of Lisbon. Architects Ruy Jervis d’Athouguia, Pedro Cid and Alberto Pessoa designed the
campus and the buildings in memory of the foundation’s namesake, and both the foundation
and the buildings have only grown more respected over the decades. More on the buildings
after the break.
Ruy Jervis d’Athouguia, Pedro Cid and Alberto Pessoa received the commission for the Gulbenkian Foundation and Museum
after winning a competition in 1959. The competition invited three teams of three architects to propose their ideas for
buildings that would serve as a cultural center and museum for the late Calouste Gulbenkian’s impressive art collection.
The final designs were constructed in 1969.

On Oikonomia: Saarinen's Ezra Stiles College Open After $55M Renovation - New Haven Connecticut - USA
NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT–Yale’s Ezra Stiles College, designed by Eero Saarinen and completed in
1961, reopened to students last month after a one-year, $55 million dollar renovation. The project was
the last in a complete overhaul of all the residential colleges at Yale, which started in 1998 and has
cost over $500 million (adjusted for inflation).
Students are happy with the work, praising the new brick pizza oven in the dining hall, shift from
single to suite-style rooms, and improved furniture and lighting. Jon Rubin ’12 told the Yale Daily News
(YDN) the renovated Stiles is “definitely a step up” from the college he lived in two years ago.

density and tallest residential structure in Singapore at 38 stories. The total height of the
horseshoe-shaped complex exceeded 430’ tall and was home for over 1,500 inhabitants.
Designed by Tan Cheng Siong of Archurban Architects & Planners, Pearl Bank served as a
beacon of contemporary residential design and acted as precedent to the subsequent highdensity urban development in Singapore and throughout southeast Asia.
Organizationally, the parti of the Pearl Bank Apartments is a ¾ cylindrical tower enveloping a west-facing interior courtyard
on the lower level. Not only did this orientation minimize solar heat gain from the afternoon sun, it also was vital to
capturing the magnificent views afforded at the top of Pearl’s Hill. The cylindrical shape of the tower suggested various
structural methods, including the ten arrayed shear walls whose mass serve as physical and acoustic separation between
adjacent units.

AD Classics: Rothko Chapel - Philip Johnson, Howard Barnstone, Eugene Aubry and
Mark Rothko - 1971 - Houston - Texas - USA
In 1964 Mark Rothko was commissioned by John and Dominique de Menil (who are also
founders of the nearby Menil Collection that is housed in the Renzo Piano-designed Menil
Museum and Cy Twombly Gallery) to create a meditative space filled with his site-specific
paintings. The original architect assigned to work alongside Rothko was Philip Johnson, with
whom Rothko clashed over their distinct ideas for the building. Rothko would object to the
monumentality of Johnson’s plan as distracting from the artwork it was to house. For this
reason the Chapel would go through several revisions and architects working on the meditative space. Rothko continued
first with Howard Barnstone and then Eugene Aubry, but ultimately did not live to see the chapel’s completion in 1971. It
was after a long struggle with depression that Rothko committed suicide in his New York Studio on February 25th, 1970.

AD Classics: Institut du Monde Arabe - Jean Nouvel - 1987 - Paris - France
In the early eighties Jean Nouvel in conjunction with Architecture-Studio won the competition
to design what would become the Institut du Monde Arabe. It was conceived during the Grands
Projets, a major development initiative headed by the French government. The IMA was
produced through collaboration with the countries of the Arab League and the French
government. Upon its completion in 1987, it quickly became a popular destination for the local
populace as well as tourists. More details after the break.
One of the main reasons behind the construction of this institute was to create a destination
devoted to the relationship of the Arab culture with France. Located at the threshold of the historical peripheries of Paris
along the River Seine, it responds to its immediate context both in plan and elevation. In plan it follows the curvature of
the road, whose form is dictated by the river.

Puerta de Europa - Philip Johnson & John Burgee - 1989-1996 - Madrid (España)
Las Torres KIO de Madrid en realidad se llaman Torres 'Puerta de Europa' y recibieron ese
nombre porque fueron promovidas por la empresa Kuwait Investments Office (KIO) aunque
fueron terminadas finalmente por Caja Madrid. Diseñadas por los arquitectos estadounidenses
Philip Johnson y John Burgee en 1989, fueron los primeros rascacielos inclinados del mundo.
Las Torres KIO son dos torres de cristal, granito y metal, inversamente simétricas de 114
metros de altura repartidos en 27 plantas y destaca su inclinación de 15º respecto a la vertical.
El secreto de su construcción se basa en que la mayoría de su peso descansa sobre un eje
central de concreto y acero que estructura cada una de ellas, mientras que la parte 'inclinada' de cada una de las torres es
mucho más ligera.

Torre Blancas - Francisco Javier Sáenz de Oiza - 1969 - Madrid - España
Les presentamos una selección de fotos de Flickr del edificio Torres Blancas en Madrid. Un edificio al que se
ha calificado como ‘obra maestra del organicismo’, y según la Wikipedia, Saénz de Oiza en este proyecto
aunó en una síntesis personal a Le Corbusier y Frank Lloyd Wright. De Le Corbusier, la idea de viviendas
con jardín en altura, como en los Inmuebles Villa, y de Wright, el esquema de la planta de la torre Price –
pero con una forma totalmente distinta. El edificio Torres Blancas es una de las buenas obras de Saenz de
Oiza, y no sólo un experimento de vivienda como los que abundaban en los ’60, lo que se demuestra con
una prueba irrefutable: el arquitecto vivió ahí hasta su muerte.

AD Classics: Balfron Tower - Erno Goldfinger - 1967 - London - United Kingdom
The Balfron Tower by architect Erno Goldfinger is an iconic Brutalist residential high rise located in London’s
eastside Poplar borough. Designed in 1963 for the London County Council and completed in 1967 by the
Greater London Council, this social housing estate broke the traditions of typical residential architecture.
Conceived as a solution to sprawling suburbia, Goldfinger embraced verticality as the cure. More details
after the break.
Rising to 84 meters in height, the Balfron Tower dwarfs its immediate neighbors – the Carradale House,
and the Glenkerry House – all forming part of the Brownfield Estates also designed by Goldfinger. In a
drastic shift from the typical preconception of tower architecture, Goldfinger separated the services from the
accommodation by splitting the tower in two. Entry is gained via a concrete bridge that opens into the main lobby of the
slender service tower. The internal core houses the lifts and staircases, in addition to the utility functions such as laundry,
and waste disposal chutes. A pattern of thin windows breaks up the monolithic concrete exterior and provides ample
daylighting into the interior. A boiler room located at the top of the service tower cantilevers out slightly from the main
façade. This served to reduce the need for pumps as water could flow down to the flats by gravity.

Getty Museum Embarks on Conservation Project of Berthouville
Treasure - J. Paul Getty Museum - Los Angeles - California - USA
The J. Paul Getty Museum announced today that one of the most prominent
holdings of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France's Cabinet des Médailles in
Paris, the Berthouville Treasure, has begun a three-year-long process of
conservation and technical research at the Getty Villa. This rare cache of
approximately 95 ancient Roman silver objects was discovered in March 1830
by a farmer plowing his field near the village of Berthouville in Normandy. An
extraordinary group of luxury vessels—including bowls and pitchers, many with figural decoration, as well as two silver
statuettes of the Roman god Mercury—the objects are associated with a nearby sanctuary of the god Mercury and date to
the first through third centuries A.D. Four large, late antique silver missoria (plates) belonging to the Cabinet are also part
of the conservation project.

Le ciel devient plus proche de Moscou - Réouverture du Planétarium de Moscou - Fédération de Russie
Après 17 ans de reconstruction, le planétarium de Moscou rouvre ses portes aux visiteurs. Lieu emblématique de la
capitale soviétique, le théâtre stellaire est désormais muni d'équipements dernier cri.
Le planétarium de Moscou, le plus ancien de la Russie, a été inauguré le 5 novembre 1929. Les autorités de la capitale
soviétique avaient alors décidé de promouvoir l'astronomie afin de détourner l'attention du peuple des problèmes
quotidiens. Par conséquent, malgré la pauvreté et la situation très complexe qui régnait dans le pays, les gens avaient une
possibilité d'observer de près le ciel étoilé…

Edgar Allan Poe Museum could close - Baltimore - Maryland - USA
Of all the cities that claim a connection to the troubled author Edgar Allan Poe, Baltimore likes to think its case is
strongest. Poe's family is from Baltimore, his literary career began in the city, he died a mysterious death at a Baltimore
hospital and his body was buried here in 1849.
But the city that named its NFL team after his poem "The Raven" may soon lose a key physical connection to Poe. The
Edgar Allan Poe House and Museum, where the writer lived for four years in the early 1800s, is in danger of closing next
year, due to budget cutbacks by the city.

The British Museum is the first United Kingdom arts organisation to publish its collection
semantically - London - United Kingdom
The British Museum is committed to making its collection, and data relating to the collection, accessible to
a global audience both physically and virtually. Collection Online, the British Museum’s web database
implemented in 2007, already allows visitors to the Museum’s web site to search nearly 2 million object
records, a third of which currently include at least one digital image.
The British Museum has now released a Semantic Web version of the database complementing the
Collection Online search facility. The Museum is the first UK arts organisation to instigate a Semantic Web
version of its collection data. The new service brings the British Museum into the ‘linked data’ world and will allow software
developers to produce their own applications that can directly manipulate and reuse the data. It will also allow researchers
and scholars a way to search and find data more precisely and facilitate automatic updates.

Clear geometry and decreased material selection were ways and methods for the design. On

El Rijksmuseum de Ámsterdam (Países Bajos) encuentra un retrato oculto de Goya
El Rijksmuseum de Ámsterdam ha descubierto una obra oculta de Goya, pintada por él
mismo, bajo el Retrato de Ramón Satué (1823). La figura ahora encontrada fue ejecutada
entre 1809 y 1813. El hallazgo ha sido posible gracias a una nueva técnica que combina rayos
X y fluorescencia, desarrolada conjuntamente por las universidades de Ámberes (Bélgica) y la
Universidad Técnica de Delft, en Holanda.
El nuevo escáner utilizado "analiza todas las capas de la tela casi sin tocarla para elaborar el
mapa completo de la obra", según el Rijksmuseum. Los expertos creen que Goya pudo haber
pintado en la obra oculta al propio José Bonaparte. Pero el rostro que ha aparecido bajo la cara de Satué "no está bastante
claro como para afirmarlo". La figura revelada con la nueva técnica llevaba un uniforme francés de la guerra de la
independencia española.

New Taipei City Museum of Art Proposal - Zerafa Architecture Studio - Taipei Taiwan - China
The New Taipei City Museum of Art (NCArt) should propose a new paradigm for celebrating
art in Taipei, one that brings lifestyle, art, recreation and education together to celebrate
the vibrant cultural identity of the community. The fusion of art with all aspects of one’s
daily experience is driven by ideas about the intrinsic relationship between art and life
relevant in Taiwan’s popular contemporary culture. The new museum seeks to embody
these ideas and provide an iconic venue for the spontaneous unfolding of contemporary life.
The project site is in an existing park, located at the meeting of the Yingge and Dahan rivers, is one that immediately
reveals a dynamic juxtaposition between the constructed nature (the park environment) and the density and “urban” scale
of the surrounding hillside context. The somewhat auspicious relative condition of these two abstract realities, both organic
yet man-made, provides the perfect setting for this museum.

NEWS - AD Classics: Shrine of the Book - Armand Phillip Bartos and Frederick John
Kiesler - 1965 - Jerusalem - Israel
The Shrine of the Book (Hebrew: ‫רפסה לכיה‬‎ Heikhal HaSefer) is a wing of the Israel Musem
near Givat Ram in Jerusalem, constructed in 1965. The building houses the Dead Sea Scrolls,
discovered between 1947 and 1956 in and around the Wadi Qurman.
The building was the result of an elaborate seven-year planning process funded by the
family of David Samuel Gottesman, a Hungarian philanthropist who purchased the scrolls as
a gift to the newly founded state of Israel. One architect, American
philanthropist-cum-designer Armand Phillip Bartos, was chosed because he was married to Gottesman’s daughter. The
other appointed architect, Frederick John Kiesler, had previously recieved funding from Gottesman to install the “Endless
house” at the Museum of Modern Art. The architectural team also included the well-connected Gezer Heller, brother-in-law
to Ibbi Hammer, future chief banker for the State of Israel and daughter of the Chief Rabbi of Budapest. Israelis objected
to the choice of non-Israeli architects, especially Kiesler.

Museum Closure Exposes Financial Risk of Signature Architecture - American Folk Art Museum New York - New York State - USA
NEW YORK–Although the American Folk Art Museum has avoided dissolution thanks to a cash infusion
from trustees and the Ford Foundation, the institution’s ongoing financial troubles raise difficult questions
about the relationship between signature architecture and cultural capital.
The museum’s former home on 53rd Street opened in 2001 after a renovation by Billie Tsien and Tod
Williams. To finance the construction, the museum borrowed $32 million by issuing bonds through the
city’s Trust for Cultural Resources, a public benefit corporation that helps cultural institutions borrow
money for capital projects. The payments on the bonds were significant, about $3 million a year, and in 2009, the museum
defaulted on the debt.
Despite early optimism, the American Folk Art Museum’s renovation project did not raise attendance or donations to the
levels needed. Last year, as it ran a nearly $4 million deficit, the museum raised just $3.3 million from donors. As we
reported in May, the museum was forced to sell its building on West 53rd Street to the Museum of Modern Art to pay off
the debt. Before opening, consultants predicted the building would draw 255,000 visitors a year by 2005. In 2011, the
museum only attracted the equivalent of 160,000 per year.

VIRTUAL EXHIBITION - Weddings In Eastern Europe - Europeana Connect
In traditional cultures, the wedding was one of the most important and complex of all social
ceremonies, with its own music repertoire. Although wedding ceremonies from Eastern
Europe were essentially similar, local customs varied from region to region, as well as from
country to country. Ceremonies and rituals reflected concerns with longevity, fertility,
prosperity and happiness. Despite inevitable changes wrought by time, globalisation and
industrialisation, remnants of earlier traditions of music and dance are still preserved in
Eastern European wedding ceremonies until today.
Cultural treasures preserved in the sound archives of Hungary, Lithuania, Poland and Slovenia provide a fascinating look
view at vanishing wedding traditions and rituals in Eastern Europe. These photos, videos and sound recordings reconstruct
a musical impression of a former time.

Seminario prevenciones para la seguridad física, contra robos y el tráfico ilícito de bienes culturales muebles e
inmuebles - Tandil (Argentina) 4-5 de Octubre de 2011

Los Museos, bibliotecas, centros culturales y emprendimientos comerciales que funcionan en edificios de valor patrimonial
son muchas veces considerados espacios ideales . Sin embargo en el momento de abordar la cuestión de la seguridad , el
tema se vuelve complejo por los propios condicionamientos de estas instituciones para cumplir tanto con la preservación
como con los servicios que deben brindar.
Cuando nos referimos a la seguridad en los museos, los primeros temas que surgen son robo e incendio. E inmediatamente
pensamos en las vitrinas , en los cerramientos , en los materiales combustibles , en los depósitos. Sin embargo , la
seguridad implica mucho mas. En el entorno , el edificio , son las colecciones y también las personas que trabajan en ellos.

John Singer Sargent's An Interior in Venice and Elizabeth Allen Marquand on view in
Princeton through December 11, 2011 - Princeton University Art Museum - New Jersey
- USA
PRINCETON, NJ--Continuing a practice--which dates to the 1930s--of partnering with other
leading museums to present single-painting “masterpiece exhibitions,” John Singer Sargent’s An
Interior in Venice (1899) is on view at the Princeton University Art Museum. The distinguished
painting by Sargent (1856–1925), Europe’s most fashionable portraitist of the age, enters into a
conversation with the Museum’s own Elizabeth Allen Marquand (1887), offering a unique
opportunity for visitors to gain special insights into the artist’s remarkable career. An Interior in Venice is on loan from the
Royal Academy of Arts, London, and on view in Princeton through Sunday, December 11, 2011.

John James Audubon Paintings on Display at Daytona Beach Museum - Florida USA
John James Audubon’s monumental Birds of America, which included 435 hand colored
engravings, was issued in four volumes between 1826 and 1838. The massive publication
includes life-size representations of nearly five hundred species of North American birds.
Although Audubon was not the first to attempt such a comprehensive catalog, his work
departed from the conventional scientific illustration, which showed lifeless specimens
against a blank background, by presenting birds as they appeared in the wild. When his
pictures were first published, some naturalists objected to Audubon’s use of dramatic action and pictorial design, but these
are the qualities that set his work apart and make it not only an invaluable record of early American wildlife but an
unmatched work of American art…

Richard Meier & Partners Design for the New Royal Alberta Museum Edmonton - Alberta - Canada
Richard Meier & Partners have released their final design submission for the new Royal
Alberta Museum in Canada. Considered as one of the four finalists the firm, although not
chosen as the winning entry, proposed “a timeless work of architecture that would
engage the ongoing discourse of civility and urban place making while establishing a
forward-looking museum destination and technologically advanced educational facility.
While we are disappointed we won’t be working in Edmont this year, we are continuing
to expand or work overseas. We thank the jury for their consideration,” commented design partner-in-charge Bernhard

Final section of Book of the Dead on view at Brooklyn Museum - New York - USA
This is one of the most important religious texts of the New Kingdom, in part because it is an
early version of the Book of the Dead, revealing the development of all later ones. The papyrus
is about twenty-five feet long, inscribed on both sides (a rare feature), and contains nearly one
hundred “chapters,” almost half of the total known group of Book of the Dead texts. Several of
the chapters are closer to those found in the Coffin Texts, the collection of funeral texts used in
the previous period…

Museo de Brooklyn en EE.UU. devolvió a Costa Rica mil piezas precolombinas
Costa Rica will for the first time display a trove of artifacts, some believed to be more than
2,300 years old, after they were returned unbidden this month from the prestigious Brooklyn
Museum in New York.
The museum chose to return the pre-Columbian objects, which could help fill gaps in the
history of the isthmus nation where tens of thousands of ancient artifacts have been lost to
looters.

Jeju University Cultural Heritage Center - poly.m.ur - Jeju - The Republic of Korea
The design of the new Jeju Cultural Heritage Centre started from an attempt to interpret the
cultural value of the traditional artifacts that are to be exhibited here with contemporary view.
poly.m.ur was intrigued by the fact that these artifacts are exemplary in showing the influence
of regional material on the life of early settlers, and they wanted their proposal to be seen as
an object which can symbolize the local characteristics shaped by the abundant availability of
basalt as raw material and the indigenous techniques of tool making.
While the use of basalt rock imagery of the overall appearance of the building was intended as
the simple yet most effective symbolism which can be associated with its specific locality, the ratio and rigor underlying the
con-struction of the geometry was metaphorical to the intellects presents in the indigenous culture.

The National Maritime Museum Reopens After Refurbishment - Amsterdam
- The Netherlands
Het Scheepvaartmuseum, the National Maritime Museum, is open again! With a 3D
projection on the walls of our building the Arsenal, we returned our museum to the
public on Saturday evening 1 October. Hundreds enjoyed the show and the closing
fireworks.
Saturday’s Grand Opening concluded a week of opening festivities. Guest of honor
was Queen Beatrix, who visited two exhibitions. She arrived in style on her ship De
Groene Draeck (‘the Green Dragon’), "a sporting and generous gesture," according to director-general Willem Bijleveld.
Deputy Mayor Eric van der Burg called it “a true tour de force” that Het Scheepvaartmuseum was the last big Amsterdam
museum to close for renovations and the first to reopen. State Secretary for Culture Halbe Zijlstra said the Netherlands
should be proud of a museum "that reflects the Dutch maritime history in every way possible”.

Current exhibits at the International Spy Museum - Washington D.C. - USA
The Museum features the largest collection of international espionage artifacts ever placed on public display. Many of these
objects are being seen by the public for the first time. These artifacts illuminate the work of famous spies and pivotal
espionage actions as well as help bring to life the strategies and techniques of the men and women behind some of the
most secretive espionage missions in world history. The mission of the International Spy Museum is to educate the public
about espionage in an engaging way and to provide a context that fosters understanding of its important role in and impact
on current and historic events. The Museum focuses on human intelligence and reveals the role spies have played in world
events throughout history. It is committed to the apolitical presentation of the history of espionage in order to provide
visitors with nonbiased, accurate information.

Repatriation of the Wall Paintings of Agios Themonianos, Cyprus - Menil Collection
- Houston - Texas - USA
The wall paintings, dating to the 13th/14th century, were once part of the interior
decoration of the Church of Agios Euphemianos (also known as Agios Themonianos), in
currently occupied Lysi. In the fragments of the wall paintings preserved on the dome is
depicted Christ Pantocrator, surrounded by a frieze of angels as well as the Preparation of
the Throne attended by the Mother of God and St. John the Baptist. In the conch of the apse
the wall paintings depict the Mother of God attended by the Archangels Michael and Gabriel.
In 1972/1973, the Department of Antiquities carried out conservation of the wall paintings. Following 1974, the wall
paintings were violently removed by the Turkish invaders and eventually ended up in the possession of the Menil
Foundation.

Plans for the 100,000-square-foot museum were elaborate: a 450-seat theater, full-scale

Toledo Museum Acquires Masterwork by Dutch Artist Frans Hals - Toledo - Ohio - USA
The Toledo Museum of Art (TMA) has acquired a stunning example of portraiture by Dutch Master Frans Hals with the
purchase of Family Portrait in a Landscape. Scholar Gregory Martin referred to the painting as ―an extraordinary picture
for the 1620s that underlines Hals’s inventive genius. Nothing like it—for breadth and relaxed tone—had been painted in
the Netherlands before.ǁ
Family Portrait in a Landscape (early 1620s) is a large work (60 x 64 ¾ inches/151 x 163.6 cm) that will take its place in
the Great Gallery near Rubens’s The Crowning of St. Catherine and Guercino’s Lot and His Daughters, the Museum’s most
recent Old Master acquisition, which came into the collection in 2009.

Por primera vez en 30 años, el Museo San Luis reune los "Nenúfares" de Monet.
Missouri - EE.UU.
El Museo de Arte de Cleveland le prestará uno de los cuadros de nenúfares de Claude Monet
a dos organizaciones de Misurí para que, por primera vez en 30 años, se exhiba junto a
otros dos similares.
La pintura irá un año a préstamo al Museo de Arte de San Luis y el Museo de Arte Nelson
Atkins de Kansas City, informó el diario The Plain Dealer de Cleveland.
Los tres cuadros alcanzan 14 metros (42 pies) de ancho cuando se juntan. Monet los creó
como un tríptico, pero luego de su muerte en 1926 se vendieron por separado.
La exhibición se hará entre el 9 de abril y el 7 de agosto en Kansas City y de septiembre a enero en San Luis.
Los tres cuadros irán a Cleveland en 2015 como parte de una exposición planeada para el centenario del museo, al año
siguiente.
La última vez que los cuadros se reunieron fue en 1980, cuando formaron parte de una gira por las mismas tres ciudades.

Cultural Heritage Protection Booklet 5th tome Management of Collections in
Museum Storage
A museum’s storage area is a vital part of any museum and generally contains the larger
part of the collection. It also plays an essential role in the development of a museum and
its programmes as it is closely linked with other activities, such as research, consultation,
exhibitions, conservation and loans. The storage area guarantees the preservation of and
accessibility to the collection, and as a result the proper care and management of
collections in storage is an important challenge for museums if they are to maintain their
roles as centres of knowledge, research and inspiration.

Implementing the Incident Command System at the Institutional Level: A Handbook for
Libraries, Archives, Museums, and Other Cultural Institutions
ISBN: 978-0-9829366-2-7
Every cultural repository needs two management structures: the day-to-day, business-as-usual
hierarchy, and a “supercharged” management structure that takes over temporarily during a crisis or
whenever looming events threaten to overwhelm normal business routines. Emergency responders have
used just such a supercharged structure for years: the Incident Command System (ICS).
Since its development in the early 1970s the ICS has been used to tackle a vast array of incidents,
including fires, floods, hurricanes, and earthquakes. The system has demonstrated that it can scale up to handle disasters
that mushroom over large areas and even multiple states. But the ICS was designed to scale down as well as up. Few
practitioners have addressed the question of how to use the ICS to manage an emergency within a single institution—until
now.

Slowest to fastest: Extreme range in lichen growth rates supports their use as an indicator of climate change
in Antarctica
By Sancho, L.G., Allan Green, T.G.a, Pintado, A
Global temperature rise is suggested to be greater and more rapid in polar regions. There has been a clear temperature
rise of 0.056 °C y-1 in the Antarctic Peninsula and this has led to changes in higher plant extent and range. In the more
extreme environments of the main continent the vegetation is scattered and composed of lichens and mosses. There is
interest in the possible effects of global climate change on these communities acting through changes in temperature and
precipitation. Lichens have been extensively used to date the substrates on which they are growing using the techniques of
lichenometry. The slow growth and longevity of lichens particularly suites them for this use. We present evidence that

Patrimonio Natural y Medio ambiente
there appears to be a substantial (two orders of magnitude) cline in lichen growth rate from the warmer, wetter and more
productive Peninsula to the cold Dry Valleys at 77°S latitude. The differences in growth rate reflect the precipitation and
temperature regimes at the different sites. The large range in growth rates coupled with the simplicity of measuring lichen
growth using modern techniques suggests that this could be an excellent tool for the detection of climate change in
continental Antarctica. © 2007 Elsevier GmbH. All rights reserved.

Les parcs scientifiques et technologiques en Espagne

L'innovation : une priorité rappelée constamment par les autorités espagnoles, une
incantation ou une rengaine diraient des mauvaises langues. Mais les faits sont là, qui
justifient une telle priorité : si la crise frappe aussi durement l'Espagne c'est qu'à la crise

National Park Service secures Petrified Forest 26,000 acres of private land - Phoenix - Arizona
- USA
The federal government is gaining control over an even larger expanse of rainbow-colored petrified wood,
fossils from the dawning age of dinosaurs and petroglyphs left by American Indian tribes who once lived in
eastern Arizona.
The National Park Service secured the first major private ranch within the Petrified Forest National Park
boundaries on Thursday, capping off negotiations that began years ago with the help of a conservation
group. Scientists say they're eager to explore the more than 26,000 acres that have remained largely
untouched and discover even more treasures.

Sambhar Master Plan: A heritage-based approach to wetland conservation through the
Ramsar Document on Culture and Wetlands in India - Sambhar - Jaipur district Rajasthan
The vast cultural significance of the town of Sambhar is directly related to Sambhar Lake. The
lake has been used as a source of salt production from the 6th century AD, which is also around
the time when historians pinpoint that the present-day town was founded by King Vasudev of
the Chauhan Dynasty. Over time, salt production of the lake, as well as the town itself, has
passed through the hands of Mughal and Rajput dynasties, and finally by the British in 1870 until
independence in 1947. These different influences have created a multi-dimensional urban fabric representing all these
phases. Sambhar also has a significant religious history. It is believed that the lake was a gift by Mata Shakambhari about
2500 years ago, and is an important religious site for both Hindus and Muslims.

OBITUARY - Kenya's Wangari Maathai, Nobel Peace Price winner in 2004 for her commitment to
the environment, passes away on 25 September 2011 - Nairobi - Kenya
It is with great sadness that the family of Professor Wangari Maathai announces her passing away on 25th
September, 2011, at the Nairobi Hospital, after a prolonged and bravely borne struggle with cancer. Her
loved ones were with her at the time.
Professor Maathai's departure is untimely and a very great loss to all who knew her - as a mother, relative,
co-worker, colleague, role model, and heroine; or who admired her determination to make the world a

El Día Mundial del Sobregiro es el 27 de septiembre
El Día Mundial del Sobregiro representa un hito desafortunado: es el día en el que la humanidad comienza a vivir más allá
de sus medios ecológicos. Después de ese día, entramos al equivalente del gasto deficitario, utilizando recursos a ritmo
más rápido de lo que el planeta puede regenerar en un año calendario. El idea viene de new economics foundation, una
organización basado en Inglaterra.

Greenpeace celebra su 40 aniversario
… Ya no se pueden tolerar las refriegas entre políticos que desperdician las oportunidades para
llegar a un acuerdo sobre cómo evitar las peores consecuencias del cambio climático. Se
necesitan líderes con visión de futuro, que tomen acciones audaces para frenar el cambio
climático y protejan a aquellos con mayor posibilidad de sufrir sus consecuencias. Se necesitan
ciudadanos que responsabilicen de sus actor a políticos y líderes empresariales.

John James Audubon Paintings on Display at Daytona Beach Museum - Florida USA
John James Audubon’s monumental Birds of America, which included 435 hand colored
engravings, was issued in four volumes between 1826 and 1838. The massive publication
includes life-size representations of nearly five hundred species of North American birds.
Although Audubon was not the first to attempt such a comprehensive catalog, his work
departed from the conventional scientific illustration, which showed lifeless specimens
against a blank background, by presenting birds as they appeared in the wild. When his
pictures were first published, some naturalists objected to Audubon’s use of dramatic action and pictorial design, but these
are the qualities that set his work apart and make it not only an invaluable record of early American wildlife but an
unmatched work of American art…

Last week scientists, including those from the Scott Polar Research Institute, identified a
major error in the press release accompanying the publication of the latest 13th edition of
the Times Comprehensive Atlas of the World. HarperCollins, the Atlas's publishers, claimed
that Greenland had lost 15% of permanent ice compared to their map from 1999. They
claimed 300,000 square kilometres of ice had been lost, an area the size of the United
Kingdom and Ireland.
The Cambridge scientists alerted the UK media to this error, and their international colleagues did likewise to global news

Unprecedented Arctic ozone loss in 2011
Abstract.
Chemical ozone destruction occurs over both polar regions in local winter–spring. In the Antarctic, essentially complete
removal of lower-stratospheric ozone currently results in an ozone hole every year, whereas in the Arctic, ozone loss is
highly variable and has until now been much more limited. Here we demonstrate that chemical ozone destruction over the
Arctic in early 2011 was—for the first time in the observational record—comparable to that in the Antarctic ozone hole.
Unusually long-lasting cold conditions in the Arctic lower stratosphere led to persistent enhancement in ozone-destroying
forms of chlorine and to unprecedented ozone loss, which exceeded 80 per cent over 18–20 kilometres altitude. Our results
show that Arctic ozone holes are possible even with temperatures much milder than those in the Antarctic. We cannot at
present predict when such severe Arctic ozone depletion may be matched or exceeded.

Avis de l'autorité environnementale sur le futur parc national des Calanques - Bouches du Rhone (France)
Le projet de charte du Parc national des Calanques, soumis à l'avis de l'Ae avec son rapport d'évaluation
environnementale, a été élaboré par le groupement d'intérêt public (GIP) des Calanques, chargé de préfigurer
l'établissement public du futur parc. L'Ae a examiné la charte et son rapport d'évaluation environnementale au regard de la
délimitation proposée pour le coeur du parc et l'aire optimale d'adhésion : cette délimitation ne relève pas formellement de
son avis mais détermine le cadre d'application de la charte.
L'Ae a bien noté que le projet de charte comme le projet de délimitation résulte d'une concertation entre l'Etat, les
collectivités territoriales et les parties prenantes, dans un contexte très complexe associant un patrimoine naturel
exceptionnel, la proximité d'une très grande agglomération, une très forte fréquentation et des attentes sociales très
diverses.

UNFCCC and UNESCO was focused on facing climate change. The aim of the ECCAP project is not to
formulate universal economic or political plans of how to deal with these issues. Rather, the working groups of the project
aim to increase awareness and discussion of the complex ethical dilemmas related to energy, climate change and the
environment, and to identify scientific data, and available ethical frameworks of values and principles for policy options
that have proven useful in facing the challenges in certain communities and countries. This report examines the existing
ethical principles in international texts, and the world views that communities around the globe have.

Getty Museum Embarks on Conservation Project of Berthouville
Treasure - J. Paul Getty Museum - Los Angeles - California - USA
The J. Paul Getty Museum announced today that one of the most prominent
holdings of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France's Cabinet des Médailles in
Paris, the Berthouville Treasure, has begun a three-year-long process of
conservation and technical research at the Getty Villa. This rare cache of
approximately 95 ancient Roman silver objects was discovered in March 1830
by a farmer plowing his field near the village of Berthouville in Normandy. An
extraordinary group of luxury vessels—including bowls and pitchers, many with figural decoration, as well as two silver
statuettes of the Roman god Mercury—the objects are associated with a nearby sanctuary of the god Mercury and date to
the first through third centuries A.D. Four large, late antique silver missoria (plates) belonging to the Cabinet are also part
of the conservation project.

El Rijksmuseum de Ámsterdam (Países Bajos) encuentra un retrato oculto de Goya
El Rijksmuseum de Ámsterdam ha descubierto una obra oculta de Goya, pintada por él
mismo, bajo el Retrato de Ramón Satué (1823). La figura ahora encontrada fue ejecutada
entre 1809 y 1813. El hallazgo ha sido posible gracias a una nueva técnica que combina rayos
X y fluorescencia, desarrolada conjuntamente por las universidades de Ámberes (Bélgica) y la
Universidad Técnica de Delft, en Holanda.
El nuevo escáner utilizado "analiza todas las capas de la tela casi sin tocarla para elaborar el
mapa completo de la obra", según el Rijksmuseum. Los expertos creen que Goya pudo haber
pintado en la obra oculta al propio José Bonaparte. Pero el rostro que ha aparecido bajo la cara de Satué "no está bastante
claro como para afirmarlo". La figura revelada con la nueva técnica llevaba un uniforme francés de la guerra de la
independencia española.

Sambhar Master Plan: A heritage-based approach to wetland conservation through the
Ramsar Document on Culture and Wetlands in India - Sambhar - Jaipur district Rajasthan
The vast cultural significance of the town of Sambhar is directly related to Sambhar Lake. The
lake has been used as a source of salt production from the 6th century AD, which is also around
the time when historians pinpoint that the present-day town was founded by King Vasudev of
the Chauhan Dynasty. Over time, salt production of the lake, as well as the town itself, has
passed through the hands of Mughal and Rajput dynasties, and finally by the British in 1870 until
independence in 1947. These different influences have created a multi-dimensional urban fabric representing all these
phases. Sambhar also has a significant religious history. It is believed that the lake was a gift by Mata Shakambhari about
2500 years ago, and is an important religious site for both Hindus and Muslims.

Connecticut College's steel house by Winslow Ames getting chance to shine again New London - Connecticut - USA
Shedding paint flakes the size of dinner plates, the rusty steel house huddled in a corner of
Connecticut College's campus appeared for years to be more of an eyesore than a historic

As one of few 1930s steel houses of its type still standing nationwide, though, the
prefabricated cottage holds a pedigree on par with many better-known architectural jewels
— and now it's getting its chance to shine again.

and various attempts at renovation were made over the years.
The $18.5 million restoration has restored the building to its 1910 appearance and into a
27-room boutique hotel. Public spaces in the hotel have also been restored, with period
appropriate furnishings throughout the hotel.
The Historic Park Inn Hotel is a perfect example of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie School
design and the only commercial structure in the state of Iowa.

Fortress of Fortezza - Markus Scherer with Walter Dietl - 2009 - Franzensfeste - Italy
“Begun under Francis I in the year 1833 – completed by Ferdinand I in the year 1838”, reads the Latin
inscription over the gate of the fortress. In just five years, over 6,000 workers and soldiers built a blocking
position at one of the narrowest points in the Eisack valley. It has the dimensions of a small town and, with
a surface area of 20 hectares, is the largest fortification in the Alpine region. With this monumental
defensive work the Habsburgs hoped to halt the advance of the revolutionary changes provoked by the
French revolution. Designed by regimental engineer Franz von Scholl, it consists of three autonomous
sections: the upper, middle and lower fortress levels. It has clear and simple classicist lines; it is functional
and impregnable. As the military threat did not materialize in the decades following its construction, however, the fortress
rapidly lost its importance. By the end of the 19th century it was merely used as a powder depot. In 1918 Franzensfeste
came under Italian rule and was used by the army until 2003.

Groene Draeck (‘the Green Dragon’), "a sporting and generous gesture," according to director-general Willem Bijleveld.
Deputy Mayor Eric van der Burg called it “a true tour de force” that Het Scheepvaartmuseum was the last big Amsterdam
museum to close for renovations and the first to reopen. State Secretary for Culture Halbe Zijlstra said the Netherlands
should be proud of a museum "that reflects the Dutch maritime history in every way possible”.

Jean Nouvel Jewelbox Houses Historic Carousel - New York - New York State - USA
In 1922 the Philadelphia Toboggan Company made a classic 3-row carousel with 48 carved
horses and 2 chariots accompanied by wood carvings that are said to be among the finest of
their kind. This historic carousel, the first to be placed on the National Register of Historic
Places, re-opened to the public on September 16th. Jane’s Carousel, entirely restored including
original scenery panels, rounding boards, crests, center pole and platform is nestled between
the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges within a Jean Nouvel designed acrylic pavilion in Brooklyn
Bridge Park. Nouvel’s steel framed clear box can be opened on two sides providing an openaired experience. At night white shades can be drawn and the shadows of the 48 horses dance across the walls.

28 Church Street Extension - S. Porobic Associates - Wellingborough - England
We were commissioned by the Borough Council of Wellingborough to remodel, extend and
refurbish Grade ll listed building at 28 Church Street, Wellingborough. The brief was to bring
back to life very dilapidated building and set the quality level for the rest of forthcoming
development. This small building, set in the heart of Conservation Area, was meant to act
as a catalyst for the Urban renewal of the town centre.
The building was originally part of church assembly buildings formed around All Hallows
Church, Grade l listed building dating from 12th century. The building itself is from 16th
century but majority of the edifice is from the early 19th century. At rear and the west, the site was defined by low quality
20th century extension and extensive overgrown landscaping. To the east the site was separated from the church by high
walls and high shrubs. The last use of the building was storage for the local theatre company.

Leazar Hall Renovation & Additions - Cannon Architects - 2007 - Raleigh - North
Carolina - USA
This 62,000 sqf renovation and addition project is the first phase of an overall master plan for NC
State University’s College of Design. Leazar Hall, originally a Dining Hall (Circa 1912), had been
subdivided over the years into a maze of office and classroom spaces. This project restores the
three level (plus mezzanine) building into a single use building for studios, seminar / review
rooms, materials lab, and faculty offices. The project consisted of totally gutting the interior of
the building, including all engineering systems. Interior spaces were opened up to create the
program requirements for studios, materials lab (woodworking, metal, welding, finishing booths, CNC machines, etc.)
seminar rooms, review spaces, and offices. The north-south and east-west axes were opened up, creating circulation zones
and review spaces. New systems for plumbing, mechanical, fire protection and electrical were added within the existing
framework.

Des œuvres d’art rupestre réalisées par des enfants de trois ans il y a 13 000 ans
Grotte de Rouffignac - Dordogne - France
Des archéologues américains ont découvert que certains dessins de la grotte de Rouffignac en
Dordogne étaient l’œuvre d’enfants de 3 à 7 ans. Ces tracés digitaux, vieux de 13 000 ans et
recouvrant parfois l’ensemble d’une cavité, posent la question de la place des jeunes dans la
société magdalénienne. Les résultats de ces recherches ont été présentés le 2 octobre 2011, par
Jessica Cooney, à l’Université de Cambridge.
Dans le cadre de la conférence internationale « Le travail des enfants dans le passé », le 2
octobre 2011 à l’Université de Cambridge, l’archéologue Jessica Cooney a présenté les résultats de son étude sur les
dessins des grottes de Rouffignac en Dordogne. Selon elle, ces œuvres ont été réalisées par de jeunes enfants, il y a 13
000 ans. En effet, une nouvelle technique a été mise au point pour déterminer le sexe et l’âge des artistes, en fonction de
la largeur des doigts de la main. A Rouffignac, les scientifiques ont pu identifier les traces de 4 garçons et filles, âgés de 3
à 7 ans.

Tourism accounts for 45 percent of the exports of services of least-developed countries and is a major job generator for
many of the world’s most vulnerable populations. Indeed, in 2009, emerging economies received 410 million international
tourism arrivals, a 47 percent share of the global total, and US$306 billion in international tourism receipts, 36 percent of
the global total. As such, the industry can play a significant role in the achievement of the MDGs, in particular MDG 1 Eradication of Poverty, MDG 3 - Gender Equality, MDG 7 - Environmental Sustainability, and MDG 8 - Global Partnerships

pour la propriété d’un butin retrouvé dans l’épave de ce galion espagnol du XIXe siècle. C’est
donc à l’Espagne que revient l’intégralité de la découverte. Les responsables d’Odyssey

Odyssey Confirms Discovery of SS Gairsoppa Shipwreck. Tampa, Florida (USA)
Odyssey Marine Exploration, Inc. (Nasdaq:OMEX) announced today that it has confirmed the identity and location of the
shipwreck site of the SS Gairsoppa nearly 4,700 meters below the surface of the North Atlantic, approximately 300 miles
off the coast of Ireland in international waters. The SS Gairsoppa was a 412-foot steel-hulled British cargo ship that was
torpedoed by a German U-boat in February 1941 while enlisted in the service of the United Kingdom (UK) Ministry of War
Transport. Contemporary research and official documents indicate that the ship was carrying £600,000 (1941 value) or 7
Million total ounces of silver, including over 3 Million ounces of private silver bullion insured by the UK government which
would make it the largest known precious metal cargo ever recovered from the sea. In 2010, the UK Government
Department for Transport awarded Odyssey, through a competitive tender process, the exclusive salvage contract for the
cargo of the SS Gairsoppa. Under the salvage agreement Odyssey will retain 80% of the net salved value of the silver
bullion recovered under the contract.

Israeli lifeguard Avi Afia rescues sunken treasure from the Mediterranean sea near
Tel Aviv
Israeli lifeguards plunged into the Mediterranean sea this month on an unusual rescue
mission: to pull out an ancient ship's anchor.
Lifeguard Avi Afia first spotted the tip of the anchor on a daily swim five years ago. It was
peeking out from the sandy ocean floor about 150 feet (60 meters) from the coast.
It wasn't until this month that the sands shifted to reveal the treasure in its entirety: a
nearly 7-foot (2.1 meter), 650-pound (300 kilogram) iron anchor, probably a spare in the
belly of a Byzantine ship that crashed and sank in a storm about 1,700 years ago, said archaeologist Jacob Sharvit of
Israel's Antiquities Authority.

Irina Bokova expresa su sincero pésame por la muerte de Wangari Maathai
La Directora General de la UNESCO, Irina Bokova, expresó su profundo pesar y su más sentido
pésame por la pérdida de la Sra. Wangari Maathai, que falleció el 25 de septiembre de 2011 a los
71 años de edad.
La profesora Wangari Maathai fue la primera africana galardonada con el Premio Nobel de la Paz,
que le fue concedido en 2004 en reconocimiento de su trabajo en favor del desarrollo sostenible,
la democracia y la paz. La infatigable labor en defensa de esos valores que llevó a cabo por
medio del Movimiento Cinturón Verde, que fundó en 1977, y de otras muchas actividades le valió
también una candidatura a ser nombrada en 2009 Mensajera de la Paz de las Naciones Unidas.

Patrimoine bâti du Grand Site de la Montagne Sainte Victoire - France
Représentatif de l’identité d’un territoire et de modes de vies ancestraux, le patrimoine bâti mérite une attention
particulière. Sur le périmètre du Grand Site, l’homme a construit une civilisation intimement liée à la nature. Jour après
jour, pierre après pierre, une histoire s’est ainsi construite, empreinte de ténacité et d’ingéniosité. Malheureusement,
l’usure du temps touche nombre de ces édifices.
Par exemple, le patrimoine bâti agricole tend à disparaître. Jadis en cultivant les terres, on maintenait les milieux ouverts,
aujourd’hui la déprise agricole, l’enfrichement des parcelles et leur conquête par la forêt de pins ont parfois fait disparaître
certains éléments architecturaux sous le couvert végétal.
Dans un espace occupé par les hommes depuis le Néolithique un certain nombre de traces : patrimoine archéologique,
religieux, agricole, vernaculaire et certains éléments monumentaux méritent une attention particulière.

Renovation of a Farmhouse - EXiT architetti associati - 2011 - Oderzo - Treviso Italy
A wide rural building located in Treviso countryside, used mainly as a farmhouse, had to be
restored and converted into a family house. The first step was to remove. To remove the
annexes and all elements that had been added through the years to the original structure,
such as the wall plugs used to close the arches and the interior divisions that hid the original
dimensions. Inner spaces were re-organized following a new hierarchy based on the pre-

La cultura "mangiata" dal degrado e dal cemento
La medaglia appuntata sul petto non basta a preservare i tesori nostrani. E’ impietoso,
infatti, il quadro che Legambiente ha presentato nel suo dossier “Unesco all’Italiana”: da
nord a sud, sotto politiche di destra e sinistra, il nostro Paese rischia, secondo le ultime
analisi, di uccidere un’abbondante fetta della sua memoria storica. Dei 45 siti riconosciuti
dall’Organizzazione delle Nazioni Unite per l’educazione la scienza e la cultura (UNESCO)
patrimonio dell’Umanità, ben 23 sono soggetti a degrado, abbandono o alla longa manus
cementificatrice delle ecomafie.

serenity and mastery.
Clear geometry and decreased material selection were ways and methods for the design. On
the one hand, the building is positioned into the correct context, on the other hand it abstracts

World Monuments Fund announces two major grants for sites in the United-Republic of Tanzania and
Cambodia
World Monuments Fund (WMF) announced today that it has received two major grants from the U.S. Ambassadors Fund
for Cultural Preservation for projects at Phnom Bakheng in Cambodia and Kilwa Kisiwani in Tanzania.
Phnom Bakheng, built between the late-ninth and early tenth centuries as a state temple for a city later absorbed into
Angkor, is one of the oldest temples in the Angkor Archaeological Park. The award of $450,000 will complete a
conservation project begun in 2009 with a prior $1 million Ambassadors Fund grant. The temple is one of the most popular
at Angkor, especially at sunset, for the view it affords of Angkor Wat. Heavy foot traffic from tourists has created serious
conservation issues at the site, which are being addressed with the Ambassadors Fund support as well as an additional
$150,000 committed by WMF through its Robert W. Wilson Challenge to Conserve Our Heritage. In addition to conserving
the temple, WMF’s project, in collaboration with APSARA National Authority, is reviewing all needs at the site from
management of rainwater runoff to improving the visitor experience.

continued support that Algeria has given the AWHF. The Algerian Ministry of Culture has
been invaluable in the way they have contributed to the Nomination Training Courses for
Arabic-speaking African countries. The AWHF has since 2008 been organizing training

Volubilis Visitor Center - Kilo Architectures - 2011 - Meknes Morocco
Set within the most visited archaeological site in the Kingdom of
Morocco, this project seeks to enhance the historical and symbolic
significance of this unique UNESCO World Heritage site. The site is an
exceptionally well-preserved example of an ancient Roman colonial town
and one of several antique sites in Morocco. Due to the lack of urban
development in the immediate surroundings, the site today closely
resembles what the Romans saw in their time. In order to highlight the dramatic visual impact of the antique ruins upon
entry to the site, the volume of the museum is embedded into the hillside so that visitors do not initially perceive its
presence.

Harbor Brain Building - C+S Associati - 2011 - Venice - Italy
HBB architectural design intercepts the atmosphere of the Venice Arsenale: a sequence of void spaces
temporararily occupied by objects (the ships) which had to be built, repaired or were simply housed.The
program for the building is that to become the harbour station housing the computers which control the
seaport trafic at the new Venice openings following the atcuation of the MOSE project, a kind of brain to
manage the trafic, exactly what we called the HBB. Habour Brain Building.
Despite for some meeting rooms and offices, the real inhabitants of this space are the computers, able to
manage the trafic during the opening or closing of the port openings. A hulk made of corten iron is
designed inside the square space of the original existing ‘teza’ of the Arsenale after demolishing the internal partitions and
compressing all the techniological and terminal installations inside the new volume and in an underground space.

My Aleppo
Beyond the Arab world Aleppo is not perceived as a "metropolis" -at the same time, though, the city
with a five thousand year old history is one of the world's oldest cities. In this way, this volume is to
be understood as a special study about the development of the term metropolis. At the end of the
20th century, Aleppo was limited with its population of 20,000 inhabitants to the city center, which
was named a World Heritage site by the UNESCO. Today, the city of almost three million people is
the industrial and commercial capital of Syria, where, in a fascinating way, tradition and modernity,
and East and West meet.

Using the World Heritage Education Resource Kit as a key reference, the modules successfully
incorporate ESD concepts into World Heritage Education and vice versa. We hope that the teacher
education institutions in the Asia-Pacific region will find these materials useful and valuable, and will
adopt and adapt them to suit their respective situations.
