ICOMOS is issuing a worldwide Heritage Alert, our most consequential expressional of concern, to amplify awareness of the threat to the Philadelphia Police Administration Building and draw urgent attention to the imminent risk of loss of the internationally significant "Roundhouse" precast concrete building designed by the Geddes Brecher Qualls and Cunningham firm, engineer August Komendant and Eastern Schokbeton engineers.
ICOMOS is pleased to announce that a new international scientific committee has been created on January 6, 2023: ISC on Aerospace Heritage (ISCoAH). With this announcement, ICOMOS’ heritage endeavours now extend from aviation and space related facilities on the Earth to the Moon and across the Solar System!
