ICOMOS is a non-governmental international organisation dedicated to the conservation of the world's monuments and sites.
After several years of work, and having consulted our members in order to learn about their needs (see e-news No. 91, June 2013), the ICOMOS Documentation Centre is proud to present its latest tool: the ICOMOS collaborative photobank. We thank warmly the Walloon region for their financial support throughout this project.
Expert ICOMOS members from Russia and Germany have expressed their concern about the fate of the "Red Banner" Factory in St. Petersburg, Russia - in an open letter.
The ICOMOS International Scientific Committee on Twentieth Century Heritage (ICOMOS ISC20C), has expressed its concern about the alarming situation now facing the Administration Building at the Izumo Shrine, in Shimane, Japan.
Post trauma reconstruction after civil and armed conflict or due to natural catastrophes, or reconstruction of places that have been destroyed by redevelopment pressures have always been a fundamental concern to heritage practitioners.
On 19 July, the ICOMOS International Secretariat received the visit of Ms Paule-Clisthène Dassi Koudjou, 2015 Laureate of a Raymond Lemaire Scholarship and now also ICOMOS member.
