3. [NEW ITEM] Dr Scott Robertson: Docomomo & Conservation of the Modern / Tuesday 21 November, Sydney
Dr Scott Robertson, the President of Docomomo Australia and the winner of the 2017 Bathurst Macquarie Heritage Medal, discusses the relationship between the theory and practice of conservation of architecture from the Modern Movement and the dilemma of conserving buildings and sites designed in the early days of the Modern Movement to have a limited life.
Whilst the fabric of Modern Movement buildings is of importance, the design intent of the original architect is often the driving force in conserving Modern buildings. Case studies of Zonnestraal Sanatorium and the Van Nelle factory in the Netherlands demonstrate the different approaches taken to conserve buildings designed around a tight program or function and those designed around a flexible or rational program.
The Australian experience of Government as a (re)developer, the impact of government political, economic and aesthetic judgements on our Modernist heritage will be canvassed and contrasted with the more positive outcomes in the USA.
Dr Scott Robertson was the founding President of Docomomo Australia, the Australian branch of the international organisation concerned with the documentation and conservation of buildings and areas or modern architecture. He has 40 years’ experience as an architect in private practice, involved in projects including residential, small commercial and institutional work, as well as heritage projects ranging from conservation management plans, major research projects and the design, documentation and contract administration of a range of conservation building projects. Scott holds the degrees of Master of the Built Environment (Building Conservation) and Bachelor of Architecture (Honours) and was awarded a Phd from the University of New South Wales for research on traditional Javanese architecture.

6. [NEW ITEM] 8th seminar of the UNESCO Chair Culture, Tourism, Development – Paris, 6 December 2017
Tourism and Technologies of Information in UNESCO World Heritage Sites
Wednesday 6 December 2017, 9:00am to 5:30pm
Room XII, UNESCO, 7 Place de Fontenoy, 75007 Paris
The seminar will be organized around two major themes:
- Digital technologies at the service of tourist experiences in Word Heritage sites
- Webanalytics and Big Data
The Endangered Archives Programme (EAP) at the British Library is now accepting grant applications for the next round of funding. Detailed information on the timetable, criteria, eligibility and application procedures is available on the Programme’s website. The deadline for receipt of preliminary grant applications is 17 November 2017.
Since it was established thirteen years ago, the Programme has so far funded over 325 projects in 90 countries worldwide, with grants totalling over £9 million. The Programme is funded by Arcadia, in pursuit of one of its charitable aims to preserve endangered cultural heritage. The aim of the Programme is to contribute to the preservation of archival material worldwide that is in danger of destruction, neglect or physical deterioration. The endangered archival material will normally be located in countries where resources and opportunities to preserve such material are lacking or limited.
The Programme’s objectives are achieved principally by awarding grants to applicants to locate relevant endangered archival collections, where possible to arrange their transfer to a suitable local archival home, and to deposit digital copies with local institutions and the British Library. The digital collections received by the British Library are made available on the Programme’s website for all to access. We currently have material from 198 projects online; six and a half million images and 25,000 sound recordings. Pilot projects are particularly welcomed, to investigate the survival of archival collections on a particular subject, in a discrete region, or in a specific format, and the feasibility of their recovery.
To be considered for funding under the Programme, the archival material should relate to a ‘pre-modern’ period of a society’s history. There is no prescriptive definition of this, but it may typically mean, for instance, any period before industrialisation. The relevant time period will therefore vary according to the society.
For the purposes of the Programme, the term ‘archival material’ is interpreted widely to include rare printed books, newspapers and periodicals, audio and audio-visual materials, photographs and manuscripts.
The Programme is keen to enhance local capabilities to manage and preserve archival collections in the future and it is essential that all projects include local archival partners in the country where the project is based. Professional training for local staff is one of the criteria for grant application assessment, whether it is in the area of archival collection management or technical training in digitisation. At the end of the project, equipment funded through the Programme remains with the local archival partner for future use.
The Programme is administered by the British Library and applications are considered in an annual competition by an international panel of historians and archivists.
For further details of application procedures and documentation as well as EAP projects and collections, please visit the Programme’s website.

Ruth Redden (M.ICOMOS) is seeking case study buildings in Victoria, Australia for her PhD research at Melbourne University, School of Design (supervised by Prof. Philip Goad and A/Prof. Robert Crawford). She is researching the impact of building and planning (including heritage planning) codes, standards, regulations and sustainability rating schemes when undertaking major works to a historic building. See abstract below for more.
She is seeking case studies (with all levels of heritage protection, hoping for a range from included in HO area to a World Heritage site) which can demonstrate the complexities involved (both positive and negative) in upgrading a historic building, with a specific focus on improving the environmental performance of the building. She’s interested in what issues (if any) heritage planners, consultants, architects and building surveyors are facing and how they are dealing with them – especially if trying to go beyond operational performance and into areas of life cycle assessment, embodied energy calculations etc.
Please contact Ruth if you have a potential project, building or person she should contact to find out more. Completed projects preferred, but others (including in other Australian States or Territories) also welcome. Ruth is also happy to discuss how her research can assist with your work.

ABSTRACT: This research aims to create a framework for optimising and valuing the environmental performance of historic buildings by undertaking a mixed methods evaluation of codes, standards, planning policies and mainstream sustainability rating tools relevant to Victoria, Australia. The outcomes of this research are expected to highlight strengths and opportunities for improvement within Victoria’s building and planning framework, and gaps in mainstream sustainability rating tools. Identifying these issues will contribute valuable insights toward a growing body of international research regarding environmental, cultural and economic sustainability.
