Лист Володимира Гусакова до Президента України Володимира Зеленського від 3 грудня 2020 р.
№ 140 від 3 грудня 2020 р.

Президенту України

Зеленському В.О.



Вельмишановний Володимире Олександровичу!



Звертаємо Вашу увагу на прикре непорозуміння з приміщенням Державної наукової архітектурно-будівельної бібліотеки імені В. Г. Заболотного (розташована за адресою: м. Київ, проспект Перемоги, 50, балансоутримувач ДВ «Преса України», підпорядковане Державному управлінню справами), що триває вже 7 років, яке не вирішується державними інстанціями і вимагає Вашого втручання, як Глави держави.

Вся архітектурно-будівельна спільнота України занепокоєна можливим виселенням бібліотеки з будівлі, куди її перемістили у жовтні 2013 року у зв’язку з реконструкцією Гостиного двору і не передали будівлю на баланс бібліотеці. Наразі бібліотека користується приміщенням на правах оренди, термін дії якої закінчується 31.12.2020 р.

Ми не можемо стояти осторонь і звертаємося до Вас, вельмишановний Володимире Олександровичу, з проханням зберегти єдину всеукраїнську галузеву книгозбірню загальнодержавного значення, що зберігає багатотисячний фонд унікальної вітчизняної та світової літератури XVI–XXІ століть з питань архітектури та будівництва.

Створена у березні 1944 року, вона стала храмом архітектурно-будівельної науки. Саме за унікальними матеріалами, що зберігаються у фонді бібліотеки, написані праці, на які спирається сучасна наукова фахова спільнота. Імена їхніх авторів назавжди пов’язані з відбудовою та розбудовою України.

На наше глибоке переконання, тільки у Ваших силах зберегти цей унікальний заклад, який має важливе суспільне значення для усієї України.

У зв’язку з цим просимо Вас, вельмишановний Володимире Олександровичу:

1) сприяти у вирішенні питання щодо передачі будівлі за адресою: м. Київ, проспект Перемоги, 50, на баланс бібліотеки;

2) надати бібліотеці статус національної.

Україні потрібна ця бібліотека! Питання збереження Державної наукової архітектурно-будівельної бібліотеки імені В. Г. Заболотного з Вашою допомогою буде державницьким прикладом вирішення суспільно важливої проблеми.



З повагою,

Stadio Artemio Franchi, Florence, Italy
Heritage ALERT !

November 20, 2020

ICOMOS and the ISC20C, in collaboration with Pier Luigi Nervi Project Association, has released an International Heritage Alert regarding the Stadio Artemio Franchi (1929-32) by Pier Luigi Nervi, Florence, Italy. The Heritage Alert is in reaction to the announcement on November 16, 2020, that the Fiorentina Football Club, with the support of the Municipality of Florence, has requested authorization from the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage to demolish in whole or in part the Stadio Artemio Franchi. We understand that this has been done pursuant to the recently passed law that specifically exempts sporting facilities from the strict requirements of the Italian Cultural Heritage Code. The Stadio Artemio Franchi is an internationally significant heritage place designed by Pier Luigi Nervi, one of the greatest structural engineers of the 20th Century. The Heritage Alert has been issued with the hope that the Italian Ministry of Cultural and the Municipality of Florence will stop the proposed demolition (partial or total) of the stadium. Attached is the complete Heritage Alert, Press Release, and relevant letters to officials.

The former woolen mill in Bucharest, (today, Filan S.A.) was initially a small factory. It was modernised by reorganizing the spaces of the mill and connecting them to those of the new factory (the fiber blending and fiber dyeing section, with a capacity to dye about 10 tons of fibers per day), on a total surface of about 14,000 sqm. Unifying the constructive system had the benefit of bringing all the specific functions of each workshop into a single volume building (that lines four different streets). The use of simple architecture, outlining the constructive elements and technological functions, is noticeable. The current owners rent out the spaces of the complex, now in a serious state of degradation, to various businesses: two laundries, a restaurant and two preschools.

Icomos Ireland

This week’s #Throwback Thursday takes us back to the ICOMOS Ireland Members Meeting on September 11th 2018, which consisted of a group presentation by Angela Rolfe, Peter Cox, Ellen Rowley & Shane O’Toole titled ‘DOES IRELAND HAVE A 20TH CENTURY CONCRETE-BASED CULTURAL HERITAGE?

The presentation focused on the 20th century concrete structures ‘project’, InnovaConcrete 20 of the 20th, which involved a joint endeavour from ICOMOS Ireland and Docomomo International members, following a request from Sheridan Burke Icomos International Scientific Committee on 20th Century HeritageSecretary General, for each ICOMOS European National Committee to nominate 5 concrete structures from the 20th Century which would be considered for inclusion in a wider ’20 from the 20th Century’ survey project being carried out.

ICOMOS Ireland made a submission which was based on an intensive few weeks online collaboration from a number of 20th century experts from slightly different fields. A very interesting list of structures were nominated, from which a shortlist was created to the 5 structures finally submitted;

1. Church of Christ the King, Turners Cross, Cork.
2. US Embassy, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4.
3. The Berkeley Library, Trinity College Dublin.
4. Donnybrook Bus Garage, Donnybrook, Dublin 4.
5. Ardnacrusha Power Station, Ballykeelaun, Co. Clare.

These 5 buildings were selected on the basis of a range of typologies, ownership and use of concrete, across the country. All of the 5 buildings have been acknowledged as examples of high quality architecture and engineering.

The U.S. Embassy, Berkeley Library and Ardnacrusha appear on the final list available at https://100of20.innovaconcrete.eu/ to view the examples from Ireland.

The high level of engagement and interest in the project led to the establishment of the ICOMOS Ireland 20th Century Heritage Working Group.

O projeto da #FAUP, coordenado por Teresa Cunha Ferreira, para o estudo da gestão e conservação da Piscina de Marés, em Leça da Palmeira, projetada por Álvaro Siza entre 1960 e 1973, foi financiado com 100 mil euros pela Fundação Getty.

Trata-se da primeira vez que é distinguida uma obra localizada em Portugal desde a criação, em 2014, do prestigiado programa ‘Keeping It Modern’ da Fundação com sede em Los Angeles, EUA, dedicado à salvaguarda e preservação da arquitetura moderna a nível global, e que este ano tem a sua última edição. O estudo conta com o apoio da Câmara Municipal de Matosinhos.

VANDHUNDE KAN NU TAGE PÅ TIDSREJSE TIL 1950'ERNE
🧜‍♀️ I denne weekend genåbner det fredede friluftsbad "Vestbad" i Rødovre tæt ved København efter en omfattende restaurering, så nu bliver det igen muligt at nyde sol og vand i anlægget, der har fået sit oprindelige udtryk fra 1950'erne tilbage.

"Vestbad" blev anlagt af Brøndby Kommune og Rødovre Kommune i 1957, og lige siden har anlægget hver eneste sommer været et yndet udflugtsmål for badelystne børn og voksne. I 2016 var det desværre nødvendigt at lukke anlægget, da det var både nedslidt, medtaget og klar til en kærlig hånd.

🏨 I 2017 besluttede Slots- og Kulturstyrelsen at frede "Vestbad" dels for at bevare det, men også for at beskytte og bevare anlæggets bidrag til fortællingen om udviklingen af efterkrigstidens velfærdssamfund. "Vestbad" er nemlig et godt eksempel på udviklingen af de københavnske forstæder i 1950'erne, hvor der blev opført en række boligområder og fritidsanlæg af høj arkitektonisk kvalitet.

"Vestbad" blev tegnet af stadsarkitekten i Rødovre, Børge T. Lorentzen, og landskabsplanerne blev tegnet af den kendte landskabsarkitekt C.Th. Sørensen. I forbindelse med restaureringen er de nedslidte dele af anlægget blevet sat i stand, så det nu igen er muligt at opleve anlægget, som det oprindeligt så ud.

🚦 Det betyder også, at badegæsterne igen kan hoppe fra et V-formet udspringstårn, som har fået sin stærke, blå farve igen, børnene kan lege på den snoede trafiklegeplads, hvor springvandet "Trafikhønen" har fået sit oprindelige udtryk igen, og solglade gæster kan få sig en pause i de genoprettede "solgryder" på græsplænen.

Det er ikke kun de synlige dele af anlægget, der trængte til istandsættelse, og derfor er vandbehandlingsanlægget, som sørger for rent vand til de badende, også blevet opdateret i forbindelse med restaureringen.

🌳 Restaureringen af bassiner, bygninger og udspringsvipper er udført af WOHLERT Arkitekter, mens restaureringen af parkanlægget er udført af GHB Landskabsarkitekter. Der er lagt et stort arbejde i at genskabe anlæggets oprindelige udtryk samtidig med, at der i samarbejde med ingeniørfirmaet NIRAS er sket nødvendige opdateringer af vandbehandlingsanlægget.

Derudover har dygtige farvekonservatorer fra Nationalmuseet undersøgt malingslagene på både bygninger og bassiner, hvor de har genfundet de flotte tidstypiske farver, som svømmebadets gæster nu igen kan opleve, når de besøger "Vestbad".

💜 Projektet er støttet af den A.P. Møller Fonden, og Slots- og Kulturstyrelsen har ydet tilskud til fremstilling af nye specialfremstillede fliser til bassinerne i den helt rigtige oprindelige 50'er-blå farve.

Der er omkring 9000 fredede bygninger rundt omkring i Danmark. De fredede bygninger har særlige arkitektoniske og kulturhistoriske kvaliteter, og kan vise os, hvordan man har boet og arbejdet før i tiden. Der er fredet skoler, seminarier, fabrikker, plejehjem, rådhuse og biblioteker fra efterkrigstiden, hvor Vestbad også blev bygget, og disse bygninger er alle med til at fortælle om, hvordan velfærdssamfundet har udviklet sig.

🏰 Det er Slots- og Kulturstyrelsen under Kulturministeriet, som forvalter bygningsfredningsloven, der beskytter og sikrer en god udvikling af de fredede bygninger i Danmark, så også de kommende generationer kan få glæde og gavn af dem.

The Latvian architects are opposing to the demolition of the former USSR central committee building ( now:World Trade Center) and to be replaced with a new concert hall building.

"The need for a new concert hall without a public debate, it is not acceptable for the Ministry of Culture and to start this process by announcing off hand a plan to demolish the building, which is a vivid example of soc-modernist architecture, writes architect Peteris Bajārs on his Facebook prifile. Representatives of NRJA have expressed a similar opinion"
