Naxos - Paisagens de uma Cidade Antiga (Naxos - Landscapes of an Ancient City)
Naxos - Paisagens de uma Cidade Antiga (Naxos - Landscapes of an Ancient City) — free for download and share — is a short documentary directed by the architect and archaeologist Silvio Luiz Cordeiro and presents two urban forms built in different times in the ancient Naxos, which is considered the first polis founded in Sicily (VIII BC). From the work of a team headed by the Italian archaeologist Maria Costanza Lentini, this video shows the implantation of an orthogonal grid (V BC), imposing itself on the previous form, setting up a new and monumental urban landscape.

CALL FOR BOOK CHAPTERS - Re-imagining Bengal: Architecture, built environment and cultural heritage - Deadline: 31 February 2016
Editors: Dr. Iftekhar Ahmed and Dr. Mohammad Habib Reza
Bengal is remarkably ancient and its contemporary features are also rich and diversified. They present us with a rich palimpsest of layers of history with deep rooted imprints of Hindu, Buddhist and Islamic culture, which range from the heart of older parts of traditional city enclaves to remote rural places. They carry the tangible and intangible elements of Bengal society and sustain local identity and culture. The local built environment, having both tangible and intangible cultural qualities, often without being one or the other, is not simple to define or capture. It is not linear and embodies multiple issues and elements. Local cultural heritage is not static; it is inherited as an element to be passed on through subsequent generations. It may be the cultural legacy, and continuity inherited in time that incorporates the identity of place and people from past into the present in a perpetual process that evolves with time and embodies local tradition, knowledge and value…

Les tours observatoires de la Hougue et Tatihou
Edité par : Vauban Network
ISBN : 978 -2 - 901647-27-0
Published: 2015
Depuis les incursions Vikings du Ixe siècle, la presqu’île du Cotentin a constitué une tête de pont pour les ennemis de la France, suscitant tout particulièrement les convoitises anglaises.
Trônant fièrement sur la rade de Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue depuis la fin du XVIIe siècle, les tours observatoires de la Hougue et Tatihou ont bien rempli, depuis leur construction, leur rôle de dissuasion. Grâce au croisement de leurs tirs, elles assuraient la défense de cette baie, devenue l’une des plus sûres du royaume, offrant ainsi un refuge aux nombreux vaisseaux qui sillonnaient la Manche.
Conservées intactes, les tours ont été intégrées aux différents ensembles fortifiés déployés sur cette côte jusqu’à la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Aujourd’hui, la mobilisation des pouvoirs publics pour préserver et valoriser ce patrimoine, fait des tours de la Hougue et de Tatihou des hauts lieux culturels, au coeur d’une nature d’une richesse insoupçonnée.

Por Rafael Ruiz Alonso
Editado por la Diputación Provincial de Segovia, el Instituto de la Cultura Tradicional Segoviana “Manuel González Herrero” y la Real Academia de Historia y Arte de San Quirce
ISBN: 978 84-86789-84-8
Published: 2015
Este libro es fruto del proyecto de investigación “Corrientes Nacionales e Internacionales del Esgrafiado”, que desde 2013 auspician las instituciones que lo han editado. Pionero en su género, este trabajo persigue poner de relieve la importante presencia del esgrafiado en la historia de la arquitectura universal, reclamando para él la protección y respeto que merece, al haber constituido la imagen externa de un sinfín de emblemáticos edificios, corrientes arquitectónicas y fenómenos urbanísticos.
El libro pone al alcance del lector una parte destacada de los parámetros tecnológicos, semánticos, estéticos e históricos del esgrafiado, desde la antigüedad hasta nuestros días, atendiendo a su desarrollo en las más diversas partes del mundo: España, Portugal, Italia, Alemania, Bélgica, Estados Unidos, Marruecos, Polonia, México, Hungría, Argentina, Mauritania, Austria, Suiza, Eslovaquia, República Checa, Holanda, Francia, Reino Unido, Dinamarca, Irán, etc. No por casualidad, esta investigación se desarrolla desde Segovia, ciudad y provincia donde continúa en plena vigencia la más antigua tradición del esgrafiado en todo el planeta, heredera de su importante experiencia medieval.

Revue PATRIMÒNI n°59
Published: 2015
En ce début de millénaire, la prise de conscience en faveur de notre patrimoine est forte.
Nous sommes nombreux à nous investir dans sa découverte, sa protection, sa mise en valeur. Patrimòni a été créé le 1° mars 2006. Il se veut un journal d’expression des acteurs du patrimoine aveyronnais : associations, particuliers, collectivités…, un "lieu" de rencontre entre eux et un journal d’informations pour tous. Pour respecter un environnement il faut le connaître. Connaître ses racines est important pour soi-même, mais, aussi, pour pouvoir s’ouvrir à l’autre. Le patrimoine c’est bien sûr l’histoire, l’architecture, la faune, la flore, la langue..., mais aussi les recettes traditionnelles, les métiers anciens, les légumes oubliés... Ses pages sont ouvertes à tous ces patrimoines. L’Aveyron est un grand département riche de ses différents "pays", Patrimòni les fait "communiquer".
Ce journal est un outil entre vos mains, faites-le vivre, il a besoin de vous, de vos articles, de vos informations. Ensemble prenons soin de notre héritage afin de le transmettre aux générations futures.

El número 88 de revista PH invita a la reflexión
ISSN: 2340-7565
Revista del IAPH para los profesionales del patrimonio cultural
Published: 2015
Revista ph publica el número de otoño de 2015 cargado de contenidos interesantes y puntos de vista variados que enriquecen cada una de sus secciones. En el panorama de la actualidad patrimonial se hace un hueco el tema de los derechos de autor en la “era digital” a través del Proyecto Outings y de la encuesta de NEMO, y se sugirieren otras reflexiones sobre: el decreto regulador de los guías de turismo en Andalucía; la Ley 10/2015 para la salvaguarda del PCI; o la incorporación de nuevos agentes y sistemas de colaboración social en el ámbito patrimonial (caso de El Cabanyal y del Proyecto Nuraghe). Esta línea reflexiva continúa en el resto de secciones: en Perspectivas debatiendo sobre cómo asumir el imperativo de eficiencia energética en la edificación histórica; en la Entrevista a Dominique Perrault donde comparte su visión sobre la cuota de responsabilidad de lo público y lo privado en la patrimonialización de la ciudad contemporánea; o en Proyectos, actuaciones y experiencias con el balance sobre el Registro de Paisajes de Interés Cultural de Andalucía, entre otras contribuciones.

World Heritage Review: Special Issue Nº 77 - World Heritage and climate change
ISSN 1020-4202
EAN 3059630101776
Published: 2015
World Heritage sites are the most spectacular places on the planet, and natural sites are often crucial for sustaining biodiversity hotspots and natural habitats for endangered species. Cultural sites, masterpieces of human creativity, cities and cultural landscapes are often fragile when confronted by the effects of climate change. Published ahead of the COP21 meeting of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) to be held from 30 November to 11 December 2015 in Paris, France, this issue will focus on methods of adaptation and best practices for dealing with the consequences of climate change at World Heritage sites, both cultural and natural, and will also examine some recent experience in mitigating the effects of climate change for intangible heritage.
The new sites inscribed on the World Heritage List during the 39th session of the World Heritage Committee, held in Bonn (Germany) from 28 June to 8 July 2015, will also be presented.

Heritage counts
By Koen Van Balen & Aziliz Vandesande (eds.)
Reflections on Cultural Heritage Theories and Practices. A series by the Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation, KU Leuven
ISBN 978-90-441-3330-1
Published: 2015
This book reports on the lectures on heritage impact during the 2015 thematic week. It was observed that evolutions in discourse and policy hold a significant prospect, which also entail an increasing demand for shared insights and formation. In response, this publication reflects on heritage impact by providing research, case studies and reflections that can serve as baseline records, guidance and inspiration. The findings are subdivided in three main chapters: “Framing the paradigm”, “Impact assessments: re-search, methods and practice” and “Linking manage-ment, conservation and sustainable development”.

Managing Built Heritage - The Role of Cultural Values and Significance
Stephen Bond, Derek Worthing

Editor: Wiley-Blackwell
Published: 2016
This new edition examines management of built heritage through the use of values-led decision making, based on an understanding of the significance of the cultural asset. It considers how significance is assessed and used as an effective focus and driver for management strategies and processes.
The authors consider key policies and procedures that need to be implemented to help ensure effective management. The book will be useful for specialists in built heritage - conservation officers, heritage managers, architects, planners, engineers and surveyors - as well as for facilities and estates managers whose building stock includes protected or designated structures or buildings in conservation or other historic areas.

When Cultural Policies Change: Comparing Mexico and Argentina
The ENCATC Book Series on Cultural Management and Cultural Policy Education is published by P.I.E. Peter Lang
ISBN 978-2-87574-309-1
Published: 2015
How can change in cultural policy be explained? Through a comparative and historical analysis this research sheds new light on the emergence, institutionalization and transformation of the cultural policies of two major Latin American countries: Mexico and Argentina. Author Elodie Bordat-Chauvin, winner of the 2014 ENCATC Research Award, has published her investigation based on the material gathered in the ethnographic fieldwork conducted between 2008 and 2010. The work challenges the common assumptions that Mexican cultural policy is characterized by inertia and Argentinean cultural policy by instability. It analyses factors of change and their consequences including reductions in cultural budgets, transformations in cultural industries and modifications in the balance of power between national, subnational, public and private actors.

The two editors then preserved in their foreword: “As we write this preface, an atmosphere of change is evident in Syrian society, the effects of which are not yet foreseeable. Thus, the articles in the book document something that will (or may) perhaps soon be a part of the past. Yet, it will also still present the basis for the future.”

In fact, MYAL now documents an era that, in the meantime, belongs to the past. Nevertheless or precisely because of it, this volume can possibly make comprehensible, what an incredible loss must be lamented.
The war has not only caused countless deaths, driven millions of people to flee and destroyed much of the unique architecture of Aleppo, but it is also a war against the world cultural heritage of mankind. Therefore, the publication of the second edition is both a documentary and an appeal at the same time to keep alive the memories of Aleppo and its stories.
The focus of the book consists of photos from the early 1900's, among others from the Poche Marrache Archives (one of the last great merchant dynasties of the city), and the archives of Thierry Grandin, as well as pictures of different photographers from the years 2005 to 2010.
There are more everyday snapshots of natives and foreigners, from the visible and the invisible, from the narrow old town quarters and the Souq with its noisy intimacy, the view from the Citadel out across the city and immersion into partially strange and hidden worlds of Aleppo and its inhabitants.

Principles for the Conservation of Heritage Sites in China (Revised 2015).
Issued by ICOMOS China. Approved by the State Administration of Cultural Heritage
Bilingual Chinese-English text
Published: 2015
Originally promulgated in 2000 by ICOMOS China with bilingual versions published in 2002 and 2004, the Principles for the Conservation of Heritage Sites in China were the first set of national guidelines for cultural heritage practice in China.
In 2010, after ten years of applying the Principles and awareness of international developments related to cultural heritage, ICOMOS China and the State Administration of Cultural Heritage undertook to revise and expand the thematic content with the participation of the Getty Conservation Institute. The aim of the revision was to update and clarify the Principles in light of recent thinking and practice in China and to better reflect the broad understanding that now prevails internationally as to what constitutes cultural heritage.
This 2015 bilingual version was prepared and designed by ICOMOS China with facilitation and editing of the English translation by the GCI. As was the intention in the original version of the Principles, the translation was considered important to provide English-speaking professionals who work in China and the international preservation community with access to the China Principles. In the revised version each of the forty-five Principles is followed by associated Commentary that explains and amplifies it. The Glossary has been retained and updated or corrected as needed.
