Conference: Military Landscapes. Future for Military Heritage
DATE: 22/6/2017
"An international overview event celebrating the 150th anniversary of the decommissioning of Italian fortresses:

The 150th anniversary of the decommissioning of Italian military strongholds forms an appropriate occasion for
reflection on the significance and the future of military landscapes. This international conference, organized by the
University of Cagliari (DICAAR), the Italian Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Tourism (Polo Museale of Sardinia),
the Istituto Italiano dei Castelli and the University of Edinburgh (ESALA), aims to share case studies, interdisciplinary
scientific research initiatives and institutional programmes concerning military landscapes with particular focus on
their possible protection, conservation and cultural enhancement, and also in the case of conversion, reuse or dual
(civil and military) use.
How have military activities interacted with the landscape, and how can we recognise, interpret and protect the
often uncomfortable memory of war, usurpation and violence by transforming it into more reassuring messages of
security, commemoration, peace and progress?
The prospect of a new wave of decommissioning brings the challenges of converting this particularly vulnerable
category of architecture and sites to the forefront of the debate. With this in mind, our interdisciplinary event will
share case studies; investigate significant experiences of analysis of military landscapes; establish protocols for the
conservation, surveillance and maintenance of heritage sites, and propose strategies for restoration and
reconversion for civil uses (e.g. residential, social, cultural, productive, touristic), focusing particularly on examples
inspired by aims of social integration, reconciliation and public use.
Sardinia, together with its archipelago of La Maddalena in the Mediterranean, constitutes a representative
microcosm of the global concerns and challenges of military heritage. For this reason, this is also a symbolic and
highly appropriate location in which to reflect on principles and guidelines for the protection of international
military landscapes."

Key dates:

Submission of extended abstract: 31 March

Conference: Back to the city. Urbanism, Density and Housing 1976-2016
DATE: 5/5/2016
On 5th and 6th May 2016, the Conference Back to the city. Urbanism, Density and Housing 1976-2016 will take place at the Glasgow School of Art, Scotland.

This conference is part of the ongoing research programme The New Tenement, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, currently being undertaken by Professor Florian Urban at the Mackintosh School of Architecture at the Glasgow School of Art. Funding for the conference has been provided by the Leverhulme Trust.Conference organisation has been a collaborative effort between Florian Urban and Ambrose Gillick at the Glasgow School of Art, docomomo ISC/U+L and Miles Geldinning and Ruxandra Stoica at University of Edinburgh.

"On 12 May 1976, Secretary of State for Scotland Bruce Millan announced the cancellation of the plans to expand the village of Stonehouse outside Glasgow into a New Town of 40,000 inhabitants, and the redirection of the corresponding funds to the Glasgow Eastern Area Renewal (GEAR). After three decades, the era of enhanced greenfield developments outside British cities was finally drawing to an end, and policy was increasingly focusing on the renewal of the inner city as a place of residence.
The Glasgow experience was by no means unique. Although, in reality, suburbanisation was continuing virtually unchecked, from the 1970s onwards national and municipal policies in many European countries increasingly promoted living in the inner city. The International Building Exhibition, or IBA, in West Berlin (1979-1987), the regeneration of Rotterdam’s nineteenth-century neighbourhoods (begun 1973), the redevelopments of the London Docklands (begun 1981), Amsterdam Eastern Harbour (begun 1988) and Copenhagen South Harbour (begun 1995) as well as numerous infills and industrial redevelopments in the inner cities of Barcelona, Hamburg, Vienna or Gothenburg evidence the increasing emphasis on housing in the inner cities.
The conference will examine the architectural outcomes of the “return to the inner city” – that is, the numerous variations of dense, multi-storey new tenement architecture, and the conditions that generated this architecture – the political and socio-economic background as well as the different ways in which living in the inner city was both conceptualised and realised."

Expo: The early years of Schokbeton
DATE: 20/3/2016
DOCOMOMO ICS/technology event
EXPO: The early years of Schokbeton 
28 November 2015 - 20 March 2016, Zwijndrecht, The Netherlands

"Schokbeton is an architectural concrete precasting system, which was developed in the early 30s in the Netherlands. The shock system was invented by two concrete workers who converted a washing machine into a shock table on which concrete during the casting process was shocked for a few minutes to consolidate the material. The founders got an international patent for this technology in 1935. Over the almost 50 years that the shocking process was used by the company, it was exported from the Netherlands to 30 countries around the world, from Japan to USA.

The initial goal of founders, G. Lieve and M. Leeuwrik, was to make low-cost, custom-made artificial stone elements intended to replace natural stone in buildings. In the artificially acquired land from the majority of the Netherlands natural stone was hardly available, thus very expensive to import in the interwar years. The idea to shocked concrete was derived from the knowledge that vibration was necessary to reduce the water content of the concrete mixture while achieving good compaction and high strength with less cement. Cement was also a product that was less available in the Low Lands and difficult to obtain from neighbor countries.

The first products made on schock table were sills, thresholds, window frames and lamppost. Noted Dutch architect Van der Steur and Van Ravensteijn were the first to use the Schokbeton process to produce architectural precast concrete elements for facade architecture in Rotterdam. Van Ravensteijn was the architect of several animal enclosures and the watchtower of Blijdorp Zoo in Rotterdam (1938-1941). It´s the first project where Schokbeton is applied in a large architectural scale.

Due to the ability to consistently produce a desired uniform finish and the durability of the material, architectural precast concrete and the Schokbeton process that produced it became popular for the post-war generation of modern architects. Because of the large building task, especially in the bombed city centre of Rotterdam, the Schokbeton company grew to have three branches in the Netherlands and produced complete facades for very large projects such as more than 1000 farm barns in the reclaimed sea landscaped of the Noordoostpolder (1947-1953) and the immense Trade Centre in Rotterdam by architect Maaskant (1953). In the early 60s half of the European countries had Schokbeton precasting plants producing standard products and customized building elements. Schokbeton was the favourite building material of architect Marcel Breuer, who, like the architect John M. Johansen for the US embassy in Dublin (1964), preferred the unique qualities of concrete at the center of a new architectural language.

Due to economic and technical developments, after 1980s the economic competitiveness of the shock system was diminished by the advent of add-mixtures such as plasticizers. The Schokbeton Company however, continued to produce concrete facade elements until 2005 and the name is still used in some international locations, which are still using the name to symbolize the quality architectural concrete.

The original Schokbeton plant in Zwijndrecht, constructed in the 1930s, was until 2015 in use by the concrete company Loveld. It was in this plant the first shock machines were invented and the casting process perfected. Early plants and later office buildings are designed and constructed in Schokbeton.

During the months of December 2015 to March 2016 De Vergulden Swaen, the city museum of Zwijndrecht will tell the history of the firm Schokbeton, exibiting the first wooden shock machine, models of buildings made with patented shocking process and drawings and photographs of international iconic projects from the 20th century.

Address and opening hours:
Museum The Vergulde Swaen, Rotterdamseweg 53-55, zipcode: 3332AC, Zwijndrecht
open every Wednesday and Saturday from 10.00 to 16.00 and Sundays from 14:00 to 17:00

Conference: 20th-Century Urbanism and Landscape in Africa.
DATE: 7/10/2015
DOCOMOMO-International Conference and Symposium
20th-Century Urbanism and Landscape in Africa. Research challenges and opportunities.
University of Edinburgh
7-8 October 2015.

"Keynote Speakers:  
Dr Rexford Asassie Oppong – KNUST, Ghana
Prof. Luc Verpoest - KU Leuven
Prof.  Johan Lagae – Ghent University
Dr Iain Jackson – Liverpool University
 
Following on from the successful workshop and conference held at the School of architecture, KNUST, Kumasi in July 2015, this new event will significantly carry forward the discussion about the potential ways in which research into 20th century modernism and landscapes in Africa can be pursued within African research institutions, in collaboration with international partners. 
 
On the first day of the conference, 7 October, keynote speakers will present papers reflecting on their experiences and pedagogic research views on ‘ground-up’ research in Africa. These papers and contributions, which are invited from researchers from PhD level upwards, will form the background to the symposium on the second day (8 October), whose focus will be the research and teaching aspects of Modern Movement heritage and conservation in Africa.  
 
We hope you can attend all or part of this innovative event. 
 
This Conference and Symposium is jointly hosted and organized by the DOCOMOMO International Specialist Committee on Urbanism and Landscape (ISC U + L),  in conjunction with the Scottish Centre for Conservation Studies and the M.Sc  Programme in Urban Strategies and Design (both within the University of Edinburgh)."
ISC/Urbanism+Landscape
Workshop & Conference: Conserving West African Modern, Kumasi, Ghana
DATE: 13/7/2015
You are invited to a workshop and conference which will focus on developing the conservation of modernist buildings and urban landscapes in West Africa. 

This development strategy will be tackled at two levels. Firstly, at urban and building level, through the development of the KNUST Architecture Department as a Centre for public engagement with, and professional expertise in, contemporary urban conservation training and research; in West Africa. This discipline is currently not taught at institutional level, despite the existence of a network of African architecture and planning schools, and architectural institutes for whom this would be beneficial. 

Secondly, with support from DOCOMOMO International’s African group and Urbanism landscape specialist committee, the workshop will develop a physical archive of modernist buildings in West Africa, using digital technology to scan and record building photographs and plans of the postwar modernist era, and making them available both to researchers linked to the proposed urban conservation training project, and, equally importantly, to the local public, as a visual resource of contemporary West African Modernist history. 

The workshop will feature outreach presentations involving junior secondary school pupils and talks from the eminent keynote speakers and research associates involved in the workshop and archive programme.

ISC/Registers: Submission of Documents
Request for all Docomomo Chapters
DATE: 31/7/2014
During its last meeting in July 2013, the Executive Committee agreed on the 2013-2014 ISC Registers Plan of Action would be that ALL Docomomo Chapters are kindly asked to submit before the next International Docomomo Conference in Seoul: 
 
A1. To update and resubmit old "International Selection" paper fiches in a digital pdf form.

Docomomo International is trying to collect all the available information to create a Registers website.
Instead of asking for new thematic fiches the 2013 Homework is to "update and resubmit old "International Selection" paper fiches in a digital pdf form to help uploading them in the Register’s website.
The so-called "old International Selection" are the ISC/R fiches older than 2003 (since from 2003 on, the homework was thematic).

A2. To update their thematic selections with a minimum of 10 missing and/or incomplete fiches and to add all missing motivation texts in a digital pdf form to help uploading them in the Register’s website.

Since 2003 the  annual "homework" selection is related to a specific theme (so called "the thematic selections"), and the chapters were invited to submit  5 "mini-fiches" + 1 "full fiche" [extending one of the mini-fiches case] + the motivation text per theme.

The motivation is a text explaining the working parties’s [wp´s] selection and giving more national/regional background of the relations between the theme and Modern Architecture.

The last registers theme´s were:

2003 — Recreation/Sports
2004 — Post War
2005 — Modern House
2006 — Other Modernism
2007 — Education
2008 — Industry and Machine
2009 — Power / Public Buildings
2011 — Health and Modern Architecture


Please note that 10 completed fiches means 10 fichesupdated, with free copyrights images and with all the missing motivation texts in a digital pdf form to help uploading them in the upcoming Register’s website.

B1. All WPs are invited to submit proposals for the new documentation strategy and to send a listwith the most important - buildings, sites and neighborhoods - from each national Register. 

The aim of this list is to make a Docomomo International Online Exhibition. Every Chapter should present a list with 20 to 100 buildings — including: 
 
      . name of work/ building, site or neighborhood
      . author/s and dates of birth/death
      . city/place
      . year: project and construction
      . image free of copyrights 

Docomomo International is accepting submissions until the end of this month, 31 July

The homework should be sent to docomomo@tecnico.ulisboa.pt by www.wetransfer.com

Dear all,

In preparation for the 2014 Docomomo International Conference in Seoul, we would like to gather information from architecture, planning, design, and conservation education programs around the world. This conference will emphasize the need for sustainable practices in the preservation of modern architecture. We would like to learn more about how the idea of sustainability is taught and practiced at your institution, to better inform the conference workshops and panels. 

Please complete the following brief survey [or forward it to relevant program faculty/staff]. The survey is available both in English and Spanish. Your answers will help us to create conference programs that best serve the needs of students and professionals seeking to integrate conservation and sustainability.

ISC/U+L Conference
The New Tenement Conference 2013
DATE: 10/5/2013
A one-day conference at the Mackintosh School of Architecture on Friday 10 May 2013 Mackintosh Building, Glasgow School of Art, 167 Renfrew Street, Glasgow G3 6RQ
Organised by Miles Glendinning (University of Edinburgh) and Florian Urban (Mackintosh School of Architecture), in partnership with the Mackintosh School of Architecture and DOCOMOMO-International, and with support from the Architectural Heritage Society of Scotland (AHSS) and the Scottish Centre for Conservation Studies (University of Edinburgh), the conference will examine the re-emergence of the tenement as an urban building form.
The tenement has been ‘reinvented’ all over Europe since the 1970s. The conference will focus on the renaissance of this widespread and, until recently, very controversial housing type, which for the purpose of this conference will be defined as dense flatted residences on a street block plan. Tenements are particularly prominent in Scottish cities and have been a symbolic battleground in the long-running confrontation of ‘history’ and ‘modernity’ in the built environment. There, and in many other European countries, nineteenth-century tenements inspired a variety of new buildings that adapted features such as perimeter block plans, variations of small-scale design, multifunctional spaces, and regional aesthetics to contemporary uses and preferences – in the process synthesising elements of ‘tradition’ and ‘modernity.’ While the New Tenement is now widely accepted as a desirable dwelling-type, the new visions of the city and its inhabitants are subject of ongoing debates. This includes questions of difference and local identity as well as ideas about self-responsibility, civic engagement, and bourgeois values as opposed to the state paternalism and equal living conditions that had been inherent in the ‘high modernist’ formulae of the 1950s and 1960s. Against this background, the conference will contextualize the international ‘tenement renaissance’ since the 1970s and its continuation today.

ISC/T Conference
Re-Learning Modernism for the 21st Century
DATE: 13/9/2013
Developing on Wroclaw’s unique Modern heritage, the conference will create a platform to share ideas and showcase best practices that make the modern movement relevant in today’s world. We are looking for examples of activities from around the world that demonstrate how modernist architecture takes on new meaning through education, public diplomacy and dialogue, private initiatives and business ventures as well as conservation and urban renewal projects. 
In proposing „Re-learning Modernism for the 21st Century” we are building on the unique modernist heritage of Central Europe with special focus on the vibrant Polish city of Wroclaw. As early as 1900, in this once-German metropolis of Breslau, the Academy of Arts, under the leadership of Hans Poelzig, launched a pioneering educational program where tailored programs and workshops produced novel solutions for real-world projects in rapidly changing urban context around them. The well-grounded, highly practical education program used Breslau as an urban laboratory, which meant that faculty and students understood key issues and problems of the city and region, and took active part in discussions and searches for viable, innovative solutions. It is also earned the city the label of having produced the “Bauhaus before Bauhaus”.
The conference will be a focal point in the 100th anniversary celebrations of the creation of Max Berg’s Centennial Hall and Exhibition Grounds, Wroclaw’s most daring contribution to modernist discourse. Opened in May 1913, Centennial Hall remains dynamic, multifunctional meeting place serving Wroclaw and the region. Added in 2006 to UNESCO’s register of World Heritage Sites, Centennial Hall is undergoing a rousing revitalization effort – to be completed prior to 2013 – that is infusing this iconic modernist landmark with new significance and vibrancy for the 21st century.
