Docomomo Chile
Call for Abstracts: International Meeting on Modern Heritage and Best Practices: Sustainability, Conservation, Management and Architectural Design
DATE: 1/12/2017
"Docomomo Chile, Docomomo International and the Faculty of Architecture Design and Urban Studies of the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, are organizing a meeting on good practices on modern heritage between 21st and 24th March 2018.

The theme of best practices on modern heritage refers to the set of procedures, ethical guidelines, principles and actions that - through exemplary cases - can configure the most appropriate, judicious and efficient course of action for sustainability, conservation, better management and good design regarding the relationship between heritage and new architecture.

The preservation of modern buildings and complexes, as well as urban spaces and landscape interventions is a dynamic activity, recognizing a growing complexity and expanding its limits beyond any established orthodoxy. In an increasingly diverse context, it is necessary to identify the value of specific cases as examples that can guide the conservation and re-use actions and face the challenges that the different situations pose.

How will modern heritage be preserved and managed? What good practices can be promoted in this field? What can constitute sustainable management of heritage? What can be the heritage sustainability strategies? What role does the community and the citizenry play in these conservation and management practices? What is the role of the experts? What is the role of public agencies and funding agencies, public or private? Which practices deserve to be promoted?
What role can be played by interventions of new architecture that adapt heritage to current requirements?

These are some of the questions that this International Meeting intends to install on the public agenda.

The meeting aims to discuss and conceptualize best practices on modern heritage, in the fields of sustainability, conservation, management and the relationship with current architecture. The meeting is conceived as a framework to enable interaction between international and national experts with cultural managers and the community.

Likewise, the idea is to promote the consideration of modern heritage among the people, public agents and architecture practitioners, through a series of activities that stress the relevance of local heritage and current experiences being carried out, as well as the possibilities for conservation, management and re-use interventions within the framework of sustainability.

The meeting aims to present a wide range of cases and proposals that can configure good practices integrating themes such as:
- social participation; economic sustainability; energy efficiency, innovative technologies, guidelines, standards and requirements.
- conservation, materiality, integrity, technical solutions, added values, analytic methodologies, paradigmatic cases
- management, public policies, legislation and regulation constraints, education, public concerns, recognizing public values; activism; exemplary cases
- architectural design, adaptivity; spatial and functional transformations, design methods and tools, hybrid strategies, paradigmatic interventions.

Lecture: Rediscovering Brutalism: Understanding D.C.’s Concrete Architecture
DATE: 7/10/2017
"Docomomo DC will host a lecture and tour highlighting the unique Brutalist architectural heritage of Washington, D.C., as part of this year’s annual, nationwide Docomomo Tour Day.

Brutalism is an architectural style everyone loves to hate, but marks an important period in the history of design and the history of our Washington, D.C. Recent demolitions of Brutalist buildings in the city have shown that now is the time to reevaluate and celebrate this architecture.

The event will begin with a lecture titled "Heroism and Hubris" by architectural historian Michael Kubo on the evolution of brutalist design and its development within Washington, D.C. Kubo is an assistant professor at the University of Houston’s College of Architecture and co-author of Heroic: Concrete Architecture and the New Boston, a history and analysis of Boston’s brutalist architecture.

Participants will then depart on a walking and Metro tour of the K Street and Dupont Circle neighborhoods to view buildings that demonstrate the varied scales, material choices, and functions of D.C. Brutalism. Tour highlights include the Sunderland Building (1969), the headquarters of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (1977), and the Farragut North (1976) and Dupont Circle (1977) Metro stations, among others."

Conference: How to list Modern Buildings
DATE: 11/11/2017
On 11th November 2017, Docomomo UK is preparing a day of presentations and workshops in how to prepare applications for the listing of Modern buildings, at The Gallery at 77, Cowcross Street, London, UK.

"Modern Movement buildings seem to be treated differently from other buildings, both in terms of listing and of subsequent treatment, but is this really the case? If so should it be? If not, in what ways might current conditions be changed so as to improve the conservation of Modern Movement buildings - a key purpose of our organisation. This listing day will inform you about the listing process and give you a chance to put together a listing application for yourself.


LISTING
Listing is the primary way to ensure heritage protection for buildings of merit from any period. Historic England, as the government’s adviser on the historic environment, recommends buildings for listing either as the result of thematic work or as the result of individuals or organisations submitting buildings to them for consideration. To assess the "national special interest" of buildings and sites for listing, Historic England uses a series of selection guides, arranged typologically, which lay out guidelines for listing based on architectural and historic factors, and give examples as precedents.

Modern buildings - particularly post-war ones - have had a fascinating and at times controversial relationship with the listing process. At a time when the architectural legacy of the recent past is more in the public spotlight than ever, and the capacity of local authorities and organisations to look after ageing building stock is coming under pressure, listing significant buildings from the 20th century was never more important.

MORNING
The aim of the day is to inform participants about the listing process, how it works, how long it takes and how Historic England uses its selection criteria to make informed judgements about which buildings to list. We will hear from a range of speakers about the process and look at recent case studies, each of which will raise different issues about the listing process for Modern buildings.

AFTERNOON
In the afternoon session we will work through how to put together a listing application for a building, piecing together the argument for designation based on the combined architectural and historic qualities of the building in question and using Historic England’s criteria.

DELEGATES
All are welcome: the day is aimed at anyone who wishes to know more about how listing operates and wishes to engage in the proactive conservation and protection of modern buildings in England.

PROVIDERS
The day has been organised by Docomomo.UK and is being run by a range of architecture and heritage professionals with expertise and experience in the conservation of modern buildings."

Sydney Tours & Talks: Explorations in Cultural Landscapes through the lens of Macquarie University
DATE: 21/9/2017
"The notion of cultural landscape is well recognised for its ability to enable discussion about non- physical, intangible values. Planning principles are intangibles critical to the architecture of the mid- 20th century period.
Macquarie University is highly regarded for its brutalist buildings and modern landscape. However, its most significant architectural attribute is arguably the master planning of the site. Planning of Macquarie University was not based on the traditionally understood model of public space but rather the innovative concept of shared space, reflecting the radically different pedagogical approach of the newly established university.

This talk by Hector Abrahams explores the relationship between what was built and the values of the university. It will include a virtual tour of the buildings and a short interview with Bob Meyer, who was the assistant to the university planner, Walter Abraham, between 1966-1969. Dr Cameron Logan (Director of Heritage at The University of Sydney) will speak briefly on a current ARC research project on the post-war university campuses in Australia."

Lecture: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill: the First Generation
DATE: 6/7/2017
"Chicago-based Skidmore Owings & Merrill became prominent in government circles during the 1930s because of their work on the World´s Fair and other fairs, and during the 1940s because of  their work at the Atomic Bomb Town, Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The public at large came to know about SOM in the 1950s because of Lever House, and, close in date, a surprising glass-walled bank on Fifth Avenue in New York City. Large-scale structures soon followed for the Carbide and Carbon Corporation and for Chase Manhattan Bank, a building with open space that prompted the commercial renewal of the Wall Street district and helped to promote new zoning regulations. These two buildings were the work of the firm´s chief designer, Gordon Bunshaft. The lecture will explain the firm´s organization, its rise to eminence and its most significant achievements during its first generation of activity. It will include aspects of Bunshaft´s career, which has recently been more fully recognized within a corporate architectural structure.

Our speaker, Carol Krisnsky of New York University, specialises in 20th-century architecture and planning and is a former President of the Society of Architectural Historians."

"Architect, theorist, artist, draftsman, polemicist, Claude Parent was undeniably a figure with brilliant and contradictory personality; A blend of charisma, ego, creativity and talent. A stranger to conventional categorization because of his anti-conformist and provocative attitudes, this uneducated rebel, anti-school of Fine Arts (but elected academic in 2005), frequented the post-war avant-garde , Created in 1951 by the sculptor André Bloc and the neo-visual artist Félix del Marle, to the circle of Yves Klein, Jean Tinguely, Nicolas Schöffer and the architect Ionel Schein. As a precursor, he did not hesitate in the mid-1950s to make a deep epistemological break with the ending modernism whose dogmas he rejected in order to explore the visionary power of experimental research based on "destabilizing" principles in terms Spatial organization."

Conference: Housing Reloaded
DATE: 27/4/2017
On 27th April 2017, Franz Graf and Giulia Marino presented the conference Housing Reloaded at Victor Bourgeois Auditorium, Brussels, Belgium.

"Estimated a priori as very vulnerable from the point of view of building physics, the heritage of the "large scale" post 1945 is now the subject of important "energy renovations", which rarely bend to the intrinsic qualities of the object constructed, and which are also extremely expensive.

This current practice deserves to be re-examined. A new strategy that balances environmental and economic footprints, while preserving this rich and heterogeneous heritage, which means the "face" of our cities, is essential."

Conference: Should Modern Movement Buildings Be Treated Differently?
DATE: 20/4/2017
On 20th April 2017 it was held the conference Should Modern Movement Buildings Be Treated Differently? with  Rodger Bowdler, Director of Listing at Historic England and John Allan of Avanti Architects and Founding Chair Docomomo-UK.

"A structured discussion to examine how we value and treat post-1945 buildings.

What weight should be given to age, virtuosity and fitness for purpose? Should a building’s ‘success’ be measured against the designer’s stated intentions, or the views of critics and historians? Is listing an insupportable burden in an Age of Austerity that can no longer afford monuments to Welfare? If technology and components in the mid-C20 were necessarily experimental and imperfect should they now be preserved? Is it in the spirit of ‘Functionalism’ to upgrade building components whenever possible? How does that fit with established principles of conservation? Do MoMo buildings need their own principles of conservation?"

Lecture: L´histoire est-elle opératoire?, 12 December 2016, ARCHIZOOM - Project Room, EPF Lausanne, Switzerland
DATE: 12/12/2016
Lecture by Richard Klein

“The complex history of certain buildings, the variability of initial programs, the reluctance of project owners and designers, the different stages of projects, and the difficulty in some cases of establishing a reference state, question the relations between history and safeguarding and / or restructuring projects. What happens when the historical study presents doubts rather than certainties, or when the partners interpret historical facts and material realities differently? Where is the balance between the adepts of a history of the operative architecture for the project and those who refute the instrumentalisation of historical discipline for utilitarian purposes? What is the opinion of the guardians of the heritage about the arguments arising from the complexity of historical situations?

The speech will resume the monographic thread that allowed to establish the detailed history of the old house of culture of Chalon-sur-Saône (1959-1971, architect Daniel Petit), in the context of a consultation and a restructuring project led by the architects De Wit-Hebbelinck and Berteloot-Hart. This case of school has opened up perspectives that far exceeded the historiographical limits that the building seemed to impose.

Conference: Une Petite Histoire du Confort, 5 December 2016, ARCHIZOOM - Project Room, EPF Lausanne, Switzerland
DATE: 5/12/2016
“Comfort is considered today as an objective notion. This is quite wrong. The history of architecture of the last two centuries clearly shows this: far from being a purely technical question, based on the balance between the external climatic conditions and the physiological constants of the human being, comfort is an idea culturally constructed. It is not a matter of considering the well-being as a kind of algorithm, which can be calculated apodictically by the combination of temperature or relative humidity parameters. Comfort is much more; it is a concept that concerns complex and heteroclite factors, such as the relationship that architecture maintains with the human body, or the conception of nature and space.
From the metaphor of fire to that of the atmosphere, through the poetics of hygiene and habitat, the conference traces the many facets of the notion of well-being.

This little history of comfort, brief and certainly partial, suggests that the nature of this key notion is not objectifiable, coming from the test-tube of the scientist or the calculation of the technician. On the contrary, it is a question of a complex notion, in which multiple interpretations intertwine: physiology, construction, aesthetics, but also philosophy, from an existential and social angle.
In other words, the history of comfort is a history of cultures.”

The conference by professor Eduardo Preto (architect and philosopher) of Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, will be held on Monday 5 December at 6.30 pm in the premises of Archizoom at EPFL.

Please find below the PDF (in French) with the announcement of the next conference of the cycle organized jointly by Docomomo Switzerland and the Laboratory of Techniques and the Safeguard of Modern Architecture of the EPFL.

“Join us in Phoenix, Arizona for the Fifth Annual Docomomo US National Symposium March 29th through April 2nd, 2017, in collaboration with Modern Phoenix Week. The 2017 Symposium entitled Modernism and Climate will look how modern design approached desert climates creatively and how those design strategies continue to be relevant in light of our search for sustainable solutions and what we can learn from those creative efforts.

Guests will celebrate the start of the 2017 National Symposium on Wednesday, March 29th at sunset at the Docomomo US Modernism in America award-winning Phoenix Financial Center rotunda by W.A. Sarmiento, recently restored by Shepley Bulfinch.

Phoenix College, a WPA era campus that experienced a huge infusion of modern expansion by the architecture firm Haver, Nunn & Nelson will host the first full day of sessions on Thursday featuring lectures of a national and local scope on the topic of modernism and climate. 

Unique to the 2017 Symposium is a full-day retreat to Arcosanti. This "urban laboratory" located in the desert north of Phoenix was the vision of Paolo Soleri, who was once a Frank Lloyd Wright fellow. Co-president Jeff Stein and others will lead guests thorough tours, lectures and discussions exploring the legacy and future of this experimental, utopian town and land preserve, what it is like to live and work at Arcosanti and what the vision is for the site in the future.

In the afternoon, Docomomo US will offer three distinct half-day workshops, particularly relevant to the preservation of our modern heritage, with in-depth sessions on how to lead successful advocacy campaigns, conduct historic resource surveys and a hands-on examination of concrete technologies.

Exclusive to National Symposium attendees is an evening lecture and tour of Frank Lloyd Wright´s winter home Taliesin West. Architect and Docomomo US founding member, Gunny Harboe FAIA will provide guests with an overview of Taliesin West´s recent preservation master plan and the evening will conclude with a very special sunset cocktail reception.

New Views on the Recent Heritage.’ Jointly organized by the Laboratory of Techniques and Preservation of Modern Architecture of the EPFL (TSAM) and Docomomo Switzerland.
For this second cycle, the cycle of conferences hosted in the Archizoom “Project Room” at the EPFL, is intended to contribute to the rich debate on preservation of twentieth-century architecture, its reception and the practice of its restoration.”

Lectures: ´Inside Belgian Modernism II´, 3 lectures (One lecture per month) from October to December 2016 in Brussels and Ghent, Belgium
DATE: 25/10/2016
“Interiors, furniture and design shape most closely everyday life and as such testify directly to the ever changing cultural conditions. Due to constant renewal and replacement they represent the more ephemeral side of architecture. From this perspective Docomomo Belgium offers a series of three lectures which approaches the heritage issues of Modern Design through the lens of these seemingly subsidiary aspects. The presentations of the series questions examples, discourses and possibilities for innovative ways of preservation of Modern(ist) design artefacts.
Geographically spread through the country, with two lectures in Brussels (in English and in French) and one in Ghent (in Dutch). […]

Docomomo Scotland
Event: Free talk ‘Listing Basil Spence’, Edinburgh
DATE: 3/11/2016
“Lecture by architectural historian Clive B. Fenton, Thursday, 03 November, in Edinburgh

Sir Basil Urwin Spence (1907-1976) was one of the most renowned Scottish architects of the postwar period. Possibly best known for his designs for the postwar recreation of Coventry Cathedral in England, he also designed numerous Modernist buildings in Edinburgh. Whilst his better-known designs in the Scottish capital –amongst them Mortonhall Crematory, the Sottish Widows head office and the University Library– are celebrated today, many of his not so well-know designs remain unrecognised, yet absolutely fascinating.

In this free Docomomo Scotland talk, Dr. Clive B. Fenton will take a look at some of Spence´s lesser-known architectural works, investigated in connection with a survey of unlisted buildings by Spence´s Edinburgh practices, namely Kininmonth & Spence, Rowand Anderson & Paul & Partners, Basil Spence & Partners and Sir Basil Spence, Glover & Ferguson.

The free lecture will take place from 18:00 to 20:00 at the University of Edinburgh, at The Maltings / Minto House, 20-22 Chambers Street, Edinburgh EH1 1JZ. Donations are welcome.”

-

In this light we would like to inform you about the auction of a Spence-designed dining suite.
“In 1947/1948, the renowned Scottish architect Basil Spence (see also event above) designed a dining suite for the Glasgow furniture makers H. Morris & Company. The suite was constructed from laminated wood, which the firm had used extensively in furniture-making but also in war-time production, e.g. for the airplane industry.

The Edinburgh-based auctioneers Lyon & Turnbull are offering in their auction on Wednesday, 26 October, this rare dining suite, consisting of a dinner table, a sideboard and six armchairs. The estimated value of lot no. 493 is meagre 10000 to 15000 £. Participation in the auction is possible in person, by phone or online.”

Conference: Réparations. La rehabilitation des Tours EDF et d’autres projets
DATE: 31/10/2016
In the context of the conferences cycle of 2016, Paul Chemetov - architect and co-founder of AUA in Paris - will present ‘Réparations. La rehabilitation des Tours EDF et d’autres projets’ ["Repairs". Rehabilitation EDF tower and other projects] on Monday 31 October at 18h30 in Lausanne.

“The days of heritage testify the popularity of the earlier buildings from the industrial age, as well as the democratic age. In this climate, the ‘repair’ of contemporary buildings extends the aphorism by Aurelio Galfetti: ‘[to] Preserve is [to] transform’, a proposition that can be reversed.

What it takes to achieve a new intervention is to use identifiable materials and forms which are reversible, without pastiche and can not damage the old state of the building.
This is what the interventions of Paul Chemetov - like the Natural History Museum, the printing house of l’Illustration or the library of Chartre - testify, as well as the rehabilitation of the EDF Tower from Atelier de Montrouge in Ivry-sur-Seine (1967).
Current visitors find these intervened buildings compliant to what they used to be. The architects of the restoration have, somehow, revealed the essential and iconic features.
This is also the case with the intervention of the administrative center of Pantin, which Robain Guieysse converted into a National Dance Centre. The news of Paul Chemetov’s iconic work is good, since most of the time, contemporary buildings are threatened despite their recognition by the label ‘20th Century Heritage’, such as in Saint-Ouen or Les briquet rouges in Vigneux-sur-Seine, or are even destroyed, as has happened in Courcouronnes.

"To console me," wrote Paul Chemetov, "I quote the house Sterckeman in Avelin which now is listed on the Inventory of Historical Monuments. Recent mishaps in the Grand Arche, however, show that the state does not assume its own modernity ... ".

This catalogue is the result of research undertaken by Docomomo Macau about the work of architect Manuel Vicente, originating from the desire to reflect on his oeuvre, from the point of view of those who worked with him, sharing their creative process and strategies developed during his practice in Macau. 

Taking place at the Fundação José Saramago, the launch will be presented by Ana Tostões, with a critical reading by Carlotta Bruni and João Santa-Rita.

Book Launch: Macau - Reading the Hybrid City – Discovering Manuel Vicente, 7th July 2016, Rui Cunha Foundation, Macau
DATE: 7/7/2016
The Rui Cunha Foundation and Docomomo Macau presented, on July 7th 2016, the catalogue “Macau: Reading the Hybrid City”.

This work is the result of research undertaken by Docomomo Macau about the architect Manuel Vicente, compiling all the material produced for a series of conferences and the exhibition “Descobrir Manuel Vicente”.
This book originates from the desire to reflect on Vicente’s work, from the point of view of those who worked with him, sharing the creative process, thoughts and strategies they developed during his practice in Macau.
The result of his different interventions are presented in this document as a global view of the underlying theory of his work.
The city of Macau is the second major protagonist of this publication. Due to its peculiar position as a peripheral city and its specificity, it was not at the centre of architectural currents of Vicente’s time and thus became an important contributor to the singularity of his work.
His built works are the outcome of a constant dialectic between the desire to follow European standards while also fulfilling the expectations of local tastes.
The presentation was led by Ung Vai Meng, with a critical reading by architects Carlotta Bruni and Carlos Marreiros.

Call for Papers: IX DOCOMOMO Ibérico Congress
DATE: 15/6/2016
Congress: IX Iberian DOCOMOMO Congress
16th - 18th November 2016, San Sebastián, Spain
Contribution proposals should be submitted on June 15th at the latest.

"docomomo Ibérico is pleased to announce the Call for Papers of the IX docomomo Ibérico Congress that will take place in San Sebastián from November 16th to november 18th 2016. The Congress will focus on "Modern Movement: Cultural Heritage and Society" and is organized by the Fundación docomomo Ibérico, the Colegio Oficial de Arquitectos Vasco-Navarro (COAVN), the COAVN-Guipúzcoa, the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura  UPV-EHU, the Departamento de Arquitectura of the Universidad del País Vasco, the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura-Universidad de Navarra and the Instituto de Patrimonio Cultural de España.

Scientific Committee: José Ángel Sanz Esquide; José Ángel Medina Murua; Margherita Sani Bixente Taberna Irazoki; Victoria Ateca Amestoy; João Carlos dos Santos. 

Submissions are open for proposed papers about some of the aspects mentioned in the following three subject areas:

1. MODERN MOVEMENT AND SOCIAL EVOLUTION. Major sociological, economic, scientific and artistic changes led to the birth of what has become known as the modern movement, while events in the inter-war period form the backdrop for the new style (“functionalism”, “international style” and so on). These events include the twilight of 19th-century society, the arrival of the first machine age, the stock market crash of 1929, cinema and mass culture and the political and artistic phenomena that marked the unfolding of the whole 20th century. Then, after the second world war, the redefinition ranged from “rationalism and organicism” to “new brutalism”, while remaining closely linked to social and political changes. 

2. PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT: EDUCATION, INFORMATION, DISSEMINATION. Public involvement in the taking of decisions on protection of urban and architectural heritage attains its fullest meaning in the term coined by Henri Lefebvre, the “right to the city”, the scope and meanings of which remain open to exploration, and which forms part of contemporary theory about cities. Town planning today includes process of participation and protection of cultural heritage, involving the public and professionals in the management of cultural and heritage resources, creating a greater sense of collective ownership of one’s own heritage and fostering the sustainability of the cultural organisations involved.

3. MANAGEMENT AND ECONOMICS OF CULTURAL HERITAGE. The rapid changes in today’s societies related to globalisation, to the crisis in the economy, society and values and to the exponential spread of the use of ICT have a clear impact on approaches to cultural heritage: how to work on it, use it and experience it while exploiting its economic potential and promoting its sustainable use. Such a context reopens the debate on how to appreciate fixed cultural assets and extract “cultural value”. This means that the tools offered by different disciplines like cultural economics are revealing for the agents in charge of managing these assets."

Schedule:
15th June 2016:
deadline for receipt of proposals for papers (maximum 2,100 characters);
5th July 2016: selection of papers by the Scientific Committee;
From 7th July 2016: notification of the authors of papers accepted;
18th October 2016: deadline for submission of the final paper.

The expanded field of the Modern Movement
17 to 22 April 2016, Recife, Brazil

docomomo Brasil invites researchers, professionals and scholars involved in the recognition, preservation and appreciation of the Modern Movement creations to participate in the XI Seminar docomomo Brasil. This edition of the seminar seeks to expand its focus of interest, reach and public through an enlarged perspective. It aims to debate the multiple dimensions of artistic, aesthetic and cultural movements that contributed to the modernisation process in Brazil and its society.
The theme of the XI Seminar docomomo Brasil already suggests this broadening of interests in other fields, part from architecture and urbanism, in order to expand the current understanding of this heritage. By encouraging the study of modern manifestations in various cultural fields, autonomously and through interfaces, the seminar aims to bring together practices and promote cross-disciplinary debates, involving an audience as heterogeneous as broad.
The organisers of the XI Seminar encourage the submission of papers from the most diverse fields of knowledge dedicated to the reflection on the manifestations of the Modern Movement, such as architecture, engineering, history, landscape and urban design, as well as the plastic and visual arts, theater, cinema, communication, design, photography, literature, fashion, music and museology.

Workshop & Lecture Series: RE Kuwait´s Modern Heritage
DATE: 5/12/2015
Workshop & Lecture Series: RE Kuwait´s Modern Heritage
5 - 9 December 2015, Bayt Al Bader, Kuwait City, Kuwait

"Collaborators: NCCAL, docomomo International, docomomo Kuwait, PAD10
Unit Tutors: Zara Ferreira, Naji Moujaes
Guest Speakers: Hubert-Jan Henket, Caecilia Pieri, Kareem Ibrahiem, Zara Ferreira, Naji Moujaes 

Workshop Brief:
This workshop focuses on the legacy of Wilson and Mason architects, the heritage value of their work, and their contribution towards a local identity not only in Kuwait, but other oil producing nations in the Middle East.
With a specific focus on the Former Bank of the Middle East building as a case study, we will launch an investigation on scenarios to reprogram the building and interpret its heritage value, applying heritage reuse and design strategies that focus on enhancing the link to the urban fabric and propose possible investment concepts that could achieve a profitable city for people. The social and economic exchange context of the building is considered to be one of the most vital areas of Kuwait´s capital city and a rare case of a sustained market community and zoning program that endured the sudden eruption of the urban evolution in the old city.

"The British Bank of the Middle East (1941-1971) is historically linked to the establishment of economical institutions in  Kuwait. The Bank was established in Kuwait during World War II when British policies faced many circumstances in the area. In that year, the Kilani revolution broke out in Iraq and in Iran, that were developments on the nationalization of petroleum movement. These circumstances affected the decision of economic branching in  the oil producing countries in the Middle East. In 1971, term of the concession awarded to the British Bank in the Middle East expired and the bank was ultimately owned by the Kuwaiti goverment and Kuwaiti citizens, meanwhile, the name of the bank changed to Bank of Kuwait and Middle East (BKME)."
BBME was the first bank to operate in Kuwait, and the only one until 1952 when the National Bank of Kuwait was inaugurated announcing the financial independence of Kuwait. Since it was built for a use that is no longer valid today, one of the most efficient ways of conserving a building is by introducing solutions that re-contextualize the buildin spatially and culturally, and analyzing the narratives surrounding the building to examine the possible reasons that lead to the current status of the building and other modern heritage properties. The obstacles hindering the work required to enlist modern era monuments on the National Historical Buildings Record could be tackled within the framework of the workshop by designing hypothetical policies for managing privately owned heritage properties, yet action to protect heritage on a state level is not the only available tool.

The right to the city and the right to participate in determining the historical urban heritage of a nation, determining the meaning of heritage properties and their emotional and historical value is also a responsibility of the civic sphere, such battles will not be won without community engagement in bringing back the symbolic charge of their places.

The end result of this workshop will be realized as an intervention in a Newspaper spread that raises public awareness on the value of modern heritage and the need to acively engage in protecting the social and urban memory of Kuwait.
The workshop will be paralleled with a heritage lectures marathon that run every night and will be open to public.

"Australia ICOMOS and docomomo Australia SYDNEY TALK SERIES 2015
Disaster Planning and Recovery for Cultural Heritage Presentation by Catherine Forbes
Thursday 22 October 2015

Disaster Risk Management Planning: The Rocks, Sydney
Although built cultural heritage contributes to the structure, grain and character of our cities, it is rarely considered in emergency planning. Yet the loss of built cultural heritage following disaster is often greatly mourned by local communities. Focusing on The Rocks heritage precinct, this presentation will outline the process of disaster risk management planning for places of cultural heritage significance. It will examine vulnerabilities and risks to the built fabric and heritage values, and discuss mitigation, preparation, response and recovery strategies to minimise risks and losses to cultural heritage from disaster.

Disaster Response and Recovery: Rebuilding Nepal
The Gorkha Earthquake of April 2015 caused extensive damage across areas of Nepal, extending from the mountain villages of Gorkha, through the World Heritage sites of the Kathmandu Valley to the base camp of Everest. The impact of the quake has been immense and rebuilding will take many years. This presentation will look at the input of heritage professionals and others to the recovery and reconstruction process – through damage assessment, provision of training, providing culturally appropriate solutions to reconstruction issues, and promoting the use of local materials, knowledge and skills.

Lecture Series: Inside Belgian Modernism
DATE: 10/11/2015
Inside Belgian Modernism - Lecture series about the modern interior and design
Autumn 2015 - One lecture per month, from September to December

"Interiors, furniture and design play an important role in the Modern Movement and in modern living. If we want to understand fully the experience of the modern ideology, aesthetics and spatiality, then these fields are as important as those concerning architecture, construction or urbanism. From this perspective docomomo Belgium offers a series of four lectures which approach the heritage question of Modernism through the lens of these seemingly subsidiary aspects. Through this it is our wish to contribute to the appreciation and consideration of issues such as privacy, efficiency, comfort, use and beauty in everyday life. The presentation of the series is geographically spread through the country, with two lectures in Dutch in Antwerp and Ghent, and two in Brussels, respectively in French and English.
The series offers a glance into the history of the Belgian Modern interior from the Art Nouveau until the beginning of Post-Modernism, of which various instances will be covered, each lecture giving insight into a specific aspect of Modernity."

International Symposium Paul Coremans.
A Belgian Monuments Man and his Impact on the Preservation of Cultural Heritage Worldwide

"The Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA) organizes an international symposium in honour of its founder and first director Paul Coremans (1908-1965). Fifty years after he passed away, it is a unique opportunity to look back at his extraordinary career. The impact of his innovative ideas and vision on the conservation and restoration of works of art has been of paramount importance on both a national and international level. His views, thoughts and achievements in the field will be the focus of this international event.

This symposium will highlight Paul Coremans’s broad-ranging fields of interest: the conservation of works of art in museums, preventive conservation/climate control, the protection of cultural heritage in times of war, the status and role of the restorer, the importance of photographic documentation and scientific research, and the forgery of works of art. Coremans’s firmly held belief in the value of an interdisciplinary approach to the study of works of art will also be considered."

He left his mark on four major themes, which will be addressed during the symposium:
  • Theme I. Museum policy on the conservation and restoration of works of art
  • Theme II. Conservation, restoration and the interdisciplinary study of works of art
  • Theme III. The protection of works of art at times of war
  • Theme IV. The protection of world heritage

Tour: Something Concrete and Modern
DATE: 4/7/2015
The Something Concrete and Modern tour is an opportunity to visit the buildings and changes to the towns and cities of the north-east region in the years following the Second World War.
The North-east post war landscape offers some of the defining built (and unbuilt) works of nationally and internationally recognised designers from Ove Arup to Victor Pasmore, James Stirling to Ryder and Yates and Berthold Lubetkin. Newcastle was the first city to adopt dedicated town planners with bold ambitions to reshape the city that fundamentally shaped the places where we live and work. The expansion of the region brought several new towns with local authorities building on an unprecedented scale. The majority of buildings were by unknown local architects, working in public or private offices of which both the buildings and a record of their work is steadily disappearing.
The tour will offer the opportunity to reflect and evaluate the significance of the period in architectural design and planning in a particular locality and to understand if lessons can be learnt from the success and failures or how the built environment was shaped and how attitudes have changed.

Organised by docomomo UK, the tour will take place July 4-5, 2015.

Talk: Cook’s Camden
DATE: 20/5/2015
In the years 1965-73, when Sydney Cook was borough architect, Camden council designed and built a series of housing projects that gave the borough a distinctive character and attracted attention worldwide. In contrast to the high-rise format generally used for local authority housing, at Fleet Road Neave Brown showed how high density could be provided without building high; and this approach was taken further by Brown himself, at Alexandra Road, and by others in Camden, notably Peter Tábori (Highgate New Town, Polygon), and Benson and Forsyth (Branch Hill, Mansfield Road, Maiden Lane). The talk will provide an introduction to these projects and the ideas that lay behind them.

The talk will take place at the ABA Gallery in London, from 19:00 to 20:15. 
The prize for docomomo members is £6.00, whilst £8.00 for non-members.

Open Day and Design Discussion, Lyall House, 18 & 22 March
DATE: 22/3/2015
"The work of European Emigré architects living and working here in Melbourne is not well known. Simon Reeves’ recent splendid publication, Gentle Modernist: The Nine Lives of Anatol Kagan, has brought attention to the work of Anatol Kagan (1913-2009). Kagan was an architect who fled Germany in 1938, arriving in Melbourne in early 1939 at the age of 25 years, and who then developed a significant architectural practice here.
This Open Day includes a selection of houses by Anatol Kagan and other Emigré architects, such as Ernest Fooks and Ernest Milston, that were built in the renowned modernist enclave of Studley Park and Kew."

Parkhill Stories, 3 February, 19:00-20:15, The ABA Gallery, London, UK
DATE: 3/2/2015
"The Park Hill Estate in Sheffield is one of the most ambitious public housing schemes of the post-war years. Designed by Jack Lynn and Ivor Smith in 1953 and completed in 1961 it was initially famous for the radical vision of the time; streets in the sky, spacious duplex apartments, views over the city, district heating and modular construction systems. However this utopian vision became overshadowed by anti-social behaviour and coupled with poor maintenance, the estate like so many of the time fell into disrepair.
In 1998 the scheme was controversially Grade II* listed.

Park Hill was then given a new lease of life by the developers Urban Splash, architects Hawkins Brown & Studio Egret West and landscape architects Grant Associates. Phase 1 of the regeneration was shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize 2013.

Greg Moss, Partner at Hawkins Brown will discuss the Park Hill story. Beginning with the qualities of the original scheme and focusing on the regeneration process of bringing the modernist icon into a sustainable community for the 21st century."

DATE: 21/2/2015
"Eero Saarinen’s David S. Ingalls Hockey Rink on the Yale University campus “is deliberately not an ordinary building.” Visually compelling in its sculptural forms, the structure is composed of a huge 300-foot parabolic arch held in place by a complex tension grid of cables. As the building neared its 50th anniversary, Yale commissioned Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo and Associates to direct the refurbishment, updates and building expansion to address the needs of the current and future Yale Hockey Program while preserving this Architectural Landmark."

"OH Architecture in collaboration with Docomomo SA, presents OH_Thursdays: Hans Niehaus Gallery.

The Hans Niehaus Gallery and antique shop was designed by the late architect Norbert Rozendal in collaboration with owner, Hans Niehaus. The mixture of curvilinear and rectangular geometries, brick, timber, glass and concrete makes it a wonderfully curious moment in the context of the bland suburban shopping area of Claremont.  The fact that it is incomplete, and has been since its inception in 1991, doubles the curious nature of the space.

This event will take place on January 29, between 18 and 19.30, in the Hans Niehaus Gallery, Claremont, Cape Town, South Africa."

Docomomo Macao
Report: Helen Liang Orphanage by Manuel Vicente, Macau, 1963-1964
DATE: 31/3/2015
docomomo Macau, upon their knowing of the intervention that is being developed on the Helen Liang orphanage, and by free initiative, has produced a report on the building in Macau. The document was presented to the owner and all parties involved with the intention of providing them with thorough specialized information on it and in order to ensure that importance of the building within the city’s architectural history in the XXth century is fully acknowledged. 

Designed by architect Manuel Vicente and built between 1963 and 1964, the building stands as a significant example of Modern Movement in Macau, integrating both the European ideas and Asian tradition to create a new contemporary architecture. Quoting Ana Tostões, chair of docomomo Internationa, “the discovery of the uniqueness and mysterious nature of Macau seems to take shape in the way Manuel Vicente handles the flow of light through devices that let in light and shadow. An exterior brise-soleils system is the filter of the long, slender openings that open rhythmically on the façace to seek the light of day”.
The report includes an exhaustive relation of its most characteristic elements as well as recommendations that would lead to a very complete and coherent restoration and conservation of the complex. Elaborated with the participation of experts on all fields related, it constitutes a good reference document in order to fully appreciate the building. 

docomomo
International would like to congratulate docomomo Macau on their outstanding job in trying to preserve the history and importance of the building for future generations and hopes that this study can be taken into account in the intervention that will  be carried out.

Docomomo Housing Series – Screening the Film – “12 Views Of Kensal House” by Peter Wyeth
DATE: 12/12/2014
This film about Maxwell Fry’s 1936 Housing scheme for the Gas Board is remarkable for the breadth of ‘modern concerns’ it covers. As well as recognising the architect’s ambition to bring modern European Housing ideas to London with an active and receptive client(the formidable Elizabeth Denby). It examines both the form, context and the life of this group of building and it’s changing inhabitants over a period of 40 years, in a cinematic style that interrogates both time and place, the formal and the social, as only the cinema can.

Docomomo Ireland
Special Award for Dissertation, 2014
DATE: 11/10/2014
In January 2014, DoCoMoMo Ireland set up a prize for a dissertation or essay to encourage research into the legacy of the Modern Movement in Ireland.

Because DoCoMoMo’s Ireland’s work is voluntary, the Committee wondered how to expand scholarship and material on our 20th Century legacy, not least to support our work when a buildings or structures were under threat of demolition. Committee Member, Miriam Fitzpatrick, suggested that we tap into the resource of educational institutions, where great research work was being generated every semester and that there might be a mutual benefit to catalogue this work by encouraging students to study 20th Century heritage.

We therefore agreed as a Committee to set up an annual dissertation prize, open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students registered on the island of Ireland in the field of architecture, art history and design.

Judges 2014

This years judges were Shane O’Toole, Gul Kacmaz and Miriam Fitzpatrick.

Citations for Shortlisted Dissertations

Submissions were received for a broad range of school and the shortlisted essays for prizes include:

Modernism in Dublin 1960-1979; The Infill Building. A comparative case study of the ESB Headquarters, Fitzwilliam Street and Stephen Court, St Stephen’s Green by Cormac Murray of DIT.

Fourth year architecture student, Cormac Murray’s essay was a mature, well informed and lyrical account of two great mid-century Irish architectural icons; the Stephenson Gibney’ Fitzwilliam Street ESB Building and Andy Devane’s Stephen Court. The narrative was distinctive and made great use of the broader 20th century cultural context. The essay, which was thoroughly researched, paid special attention to the specifics of the urban setting and façade details which, through comparative analysis, reached insightful, relevant conclusions for today.
His supervisor was Stephen Best, DIT.

R & H Hall’s Flour Mills and the Hennebique System in Waterford by Matthew Keating, Anthony Hogan and Keith Cleere of WIT.

This essay was, unusually, a joint technical and material study of a multi-story granary warehouse, the R & H Hall’s Flour Mills and the Hennebique System in Waterford by three fourth year students at WIT, Matthew Keating, Anthony Hogan and Keith Cleere.  It makes a valuable summary of the technical contribution of the Hennebique system of construction to Ireland. The building, currently under threat of demolition, is the first reinforced concrete building in this system in the Republic of Ireland, and the first to be constructed completely of concrete in all of Ireland and this short study traces the technical lineage of ferro-concrete development and the historical evolution of its setting on Waterford North Quays.

La Biennalle Di Venezia: Caribbean Modernity: Paradise as Tabula Rasa, 10th October 2014, Venezia, Italy
DATE: 10/10/2014
“Caribbean Modernity: paradise as tabula rasa” is the title of the conversation organized by the Dominican Republic Pavilion and the DoCoMoMo_do in in the context of the Freeport conceived as part of the exhibition Monditalia.

Through a series of critical reflections around the general conjecture on how modernity was absorbed in the context of the Caribbean, this conversation will take a special look into the Dominican Republic, taking into account its insular condition, which has produced a historical struggle of external interventions and internal up rises. The discussion between researchers Melisa Vargas Rivera and Alex Martínez Suárez aims to create a cohesive understanding of the meaning and implications of the Caribbean and Dominican architectural and urban production as some of the most central elements in its modernization process during the XXth century and how this centrality has been diffused in recent decades. The speakers will address the Caribbean region’s particular historical struggle between association and autonomy, which has represented both an advantage and a handicap: isolation has served as a defense mechanism as well as it has posed the threat of disconnection. Also the critical period between1930 and 1961 in which the emergence one of the most ruthless dictatorships of the region, led by Rafael Trujillo in the Dominican Republic, was ideologically based both in the implementation of authority through fear and the construction of order through the modernization of the then mostly rural and virgin country. Finally, they will look at the transition to the present scenario as well as the current state of the modern legacy.

Schedule:

10th October 2014 - Corderie of the Arsenale, stage C
4:00 pm - Introduction
4:05 pm – Melisa Vargas Rivera | Context and Construction
4:35 pm – Alex Martínez Suárez | Legacy, Expansion and Ruin

Talk: Lancashire Goes Pop. Modernism & Politics in Central Blackburn in the 1960s
DATE: 21/5/2014
​Blackburn Shopping Centre was built through the sixties in partnership between the Blackburn Corporation and the Laing Development Company, and was designed by the Preston based architectural firm Building Design Partnership (BDP). BDP, as evinced by their two recently listed projects Preston Bus Station and the Halifax Headquarters Building, were one of the few architectural practices of the period really able to exploit the aesthetic possibilities of a project of this scale. Whatever the aesthetic nuances or otherwise of the scheme, by any measure knocking down Blackburn’s Victorian city centre and replacing it with a shopping centre was a simply astonishing thing to do. Otto Saumarez Smith will argue that British modernism played out in distinct ways in its local provincial settings – with architectural culture jigsawing with the local ambitions and concerns of an industrial city.

Lecture Series: Conservation as Innovative Practice
DATE: 15/5/2014

In this lecture series, four renowned experts will address these questions on the basis of their experience within the field of conservation and preservation. Despite the differences, their approach has in common that it focuses less on conserving what has been built than on exploring the future potential of our architectural heritage.

36th Salon of Architecture: Architect Bogdan Ignjatovic and the Building of the German Embassy in Belgrade
DATE: 17/4/2014
The importance and relevance of architect Bogdan Ignjatovića is insufficiently known in our wider, even professional audience. Despite being the author of several iconic and most popular buildings of Belgrade (Hotel Park, Belgrade Drama Theatre, Gallery of Frescoes), his name appears on very sporadically, even rather reduced and modestly, in various surveys and discourses of the capital’s post-war architecture .

Panel discussion at the Salon of Architecture will be a unique opportunity to remember this important Belgrade architect, whose oeuvre, unfortunately, we came to dealing with only in a situation where one of his anthological buildings is in a state of potential destruction. The importance of his work and the circumstances, in which the building of the German embassy in Belgrade currently is, will be discussed by the witnesses of the epoch , the researchers and authors of the younger generation.

National section of Docomomo Serbia exists since 2010. In cooperation with related organizations and partners, is engaged in the promotion , documentation and protection of modern architecture in our country. Cycle of the discussions  in the 2013 and in 2014 is being implemented with the financial support of the Serbian Chamber of Engineers .

Conference: Restoration and Adaptive Reuse: Function - Inner Spaces - Colour
DATE: 4/4/2013
DOCOMOMO Russia invites to the conference
Restoration and Adaptive Reuse: Function - Inner Spaces - Colour
In Moscow, at the ZIL Culture Centre on April 4-6, 2014

The conference will be held at the world famous monument of modern architecture – the Proletarskiy District Palace of Culture (ZIS, ZIL), designed by Constructivist leaders, the Vesnin brothers, the restoration of which is on the agenda today.


The focus will be on specific aspects of the restoration and adaptation of public buildings for modern needs, during which scientific surveys are necessary, as well as the development of a consistent concept the building´s use, and a comprehensive understanding of the professional line of reasoning.

International practices will be examined, since in our country there still have been no cases of really high quality restoration and successful reconstruction of architectural heritage of the twentieth century.
When considering domestic examples, including those that are currently under development, we will focus on the most difficult issues for interpretation:

- on the correct attitude towards architectural elements from different times and valuable historical layers (which are present in DK ZIL and should enter into the subject of protection of the complex);
- on ways to demonstrate authentic constructions and materials;
- on interior design solutions;
- on attempts to restore lost historical forms, their styling and imitation.

Une Architecture Pour L´Homme: Junzo Sakakura in Architectural Documents
DATE: 23/2/2014
Contemporary Japanese architecture has for the past fifty years been heavily influenced by the industrial materials and pared-down style of modernism, pioneered by Le Corbusier. Junzo Sakakura (1901-1969) traveled to Paris to study with him for five years in the 1930s, then brought what he learned back home to Japan. One of his most acclaimed works was the 1951 Museum of Modern Art in Kamakura, a floating white square perched over the sea. This explores his development of that and other designs through photographs, drawings, and other materials from the archive.

Open 9:39-16:30, closed Dec. 29 – Jan. 3. Reservations are required to view just the exhibit, which is an option on weekdays; admission is free. Reservations not required if you purchase a 400 yen ticket to see the adjacent Kyu-Iwasaki-Tei Garden.

Lecture Series: Conservation as Innovative Practice
DATE: 30/1/2014
What can be the role of our architectural heritage in the debate about sustainable urbanization, demographic change and cultural diversity? How can conservation become an innovative practice and contribute to facing these challenges?

In this lecture series, four renowned experts will address these questions on the basis of their experience within the field of conservation and preservation. Despite the differences, their approach has in common that it focuses less on conserving what has been built than on exploring the future potential of our architectural heritage.

DATE: 7/2/2014
This exhibition commemorates the ideas and works of the architects from Group R, whose action contributed to consolidate his own version of modern aesthetics under the Franco regime.

The R Group was established in Barcelona in 1951 in order to pursue "the study and dissemination of the problems of contemporary art and especially architecture." Under the letter R, Chapter Renewal and cultural and architectural recovery , the Group brought together members of two generations of architects who began their studies immediately before the Civil War and they did at the end of the war. Two generations intertwined by GATCPAC as first reference , and inherited concepts of AC magazine and sophistication that gave off the magazine D´ ací d´ allà . They also linked the common interest in promoting an international architecture from the modern movement and its subsequent review , compared to architectural scene of the first period of the dictatorship.
