Getty Scholar Reflections
Japanese Room, Melbourne School of Design, Parkville
Monday 5 December, 6pm
During April-June this year, Liz Vines was a Visiting Scholar at the Getty Conservation Institute in Los Angeles. The Getty Center opened to the public on 16 December 1997, to the design of Richard Meier, at a cost at the time of $1.3 billion, and is one of the wealthiest museum and research centres in the world. The Melbourne School of Design and Australia ICOMOS are hosting a talk where Liz will share her experiences including:
- What is a Getty Scholar position and how do you apply?
- Her topic of research was “New Development in Creative Heritage Cities”, which is the focus of her proposed book, Streetwise Design – A Guide for Creative Heritage Cities, a sequel to her two previous books, Streetwise and Streetwise Asia.
- The Case Study House program and more generally the mid-century modern architecture of Los Angeles and Palm Springs with architects, such as Ray and Charles Eames (the Eames house, 1949), Pierre Koenig (the Stahl house 1960), Harry Gesner (the Scantlin house 1965), and others.
- The architecture of Greene and Greene, Frank Lloyd Wright and Frank Gehry in Los Angeles.
- The April-September innovative Mogao Grottoes immersive exhibition at the Getty, which showcases the Cave Temple conservation along the Silk Road.
- Her personal reflections of various planning issues of Los Angeles

10. World Heritage Centre update on Great Barrier Reef protection – Hon Josh Frydenberg MP & Hon Steven Miles MP media release
Australia ICOMOS is committed to the dissemination of relevant cultural heritage information. In line with this commitment we are circulating the following media release from the Hon Josh Frydenberg MP & the Hon Steven Miles MP, dated 25 November 2016.
The Australian and Queensland Governments will next month update the World Heritage Centre on the significant progress being made through joint measures to protect and improve the Great Barrier Reef.
Providing a status update to the World Heritage Committee is required as part of its decision not to list the Reef as “in danger” in June 2015.
The update will provide a factual summary of progress made on specific actions of the Reef 2050 Plan, and will include an Investment Framework and an update on the coral bleaching response.
Federal Minister for the Environment and Energy Josh Frydenberg said the Governments were proud of what had been achieved in the first 18 months of the 35 year plan, which will see both governments invest $2 billion in the Reef over the next decade.
“The first Reef 2050 Annual Report released earlier this year illustrates for UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee our staunch commitment to conserving this amazing natural asset,” Minister Frydenberg said.
“It showed we’ve already completed 29 of the plan’s 151 actions including an historic ban on the sea-based disposal of capital dredge material within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and World Heritage Area.”
Queensland Minister for the Great Barrier Reef, Dr Steven Miles, said early efforts under the plan would help to build the resilience of the Reef.
“We have used legal and policy levers to improve water quality including new compliance measures on cane farming and grazing,” Dr Miles said.
“We have established a strong partnership approach based on the best available science and momentum is really building for a new era in Reef protection.
“Over and above the 2050 plan, additional work has been undertaken including gully remediation on priority Cape York properties, Springvale Station was recently purchased and funding for crown-of-thorn starfish control has been boosted.”
The Australian and Queensland Governments are confident in the progress already made through the Reef 2050 Plan and both recognise this is against the backdrop of the recent coral bleaching event, which was caused by a culmination of El Niño and climate change effects.
An update on the event and response was provided at today’s Great Barrier Reef Ministerial Forum.
As a result, the Ministers have today directed their departments to provide advice on what additional measures can be taken in the northern part of the Reef, most affected by bleaching, once full monitoring results on the extent of the damage are known early next year.
Ministers also agreed to a Reef 2050 Plan Investment Framework that highlights existing levels of funding, details future investment priorities for the Reef, and outlines possible new sources of funding, including from the private sector.

15. New underwater heritage law will protect even more of our history – Hon Josh Frydenberg MP media release
Australia ICOMOS is committed to the dissemination of relevant cultural heritage information. In line with this commitment we are circulating the following media release from the Hon Josh Frydenberg MP, dated 29 November 2016.
Protection of Australia’s unique underwater heritage will be strengthened under new legislation to be introduced to Parliament next year.
The Underwater Cultural Heritage Act will extend the protection currently afforded only to shipwrecks, plane wrecks, Indigenous heritage sites and other underwater cultural sites.
This change will mean the historic sites will be registered on the Australian National Shipwrecks Database, and all access will require a permit, which acts as a deterrent to vandalism and theft.
Australia was one of the first countries to protect its underwater cultural heritage in 1976 with the Historic Shipwrecks Act, making it one of Australia’s oldest heritage protection programs.
Today I’m pleased to announce we’re building on this, ensuring the continued protection of more than 8,000 shipwrecks in Australian waters and any wrecks older than 75 years yet to be discovered.
It will have a significant positive impact at shipwreck areas like the Great Barrier Reef and Shark Bay World Heritage Area, and aircraft wreck areas in Darwin Bay and off the Kimberley Coast.
This will broaden and improve the protection of Australia’s underwater history using the principles set down by the UNESCO 2001 Convention on the Protection of the Underwater Cultural Heritage.
It will also enable Australia to pursue ratification of the convention. This is a further demonstration of the Turnbull Government’s commitment to protecting heritage.
The Coalition will continue to works collaboratively with state and territory government agencies to protect and conserve Australia’s irreplaceable historic shipwreck heritage to ensure it can be enjoyed and studied now and by future generations.
