TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) – The Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation is a nonprofit organization working to preserve and protect Tucson’s heritage and cultural resources.

There are five historic preservation areas in the city of Tucson. It’s a true calling for Executive Director Demion Clinco, who says, “When I came back I was really concerned with how Tucson treated its historic built environment. “

So he decided to step in and help. Clinco said, “We really needed a renewed focus on the places that make Tucson unique and special and we needed to find strategies to cultivate and preserve them. “

When a location is surveyed by the preservation foundation and determined to be of historic significance, the foundation names the landmark. “In the city of Tucson and Pima County there is what is called a preservation of local historic monuments and this is a protective layer created by the zoning that really provides protection to the historic resource under- jacente ”, explains Clinco.

Clinco says the foundation “uses the resources we collect to help identify, study, document, and then work with sympathetic owners to create these types of regulatory overlay tools to help manage and protect resources for future generations.” “.

Once a monument is proposed, it is examined by the commission. From there, it goes through a full rezoning process. According to Clinco, “There are about a dozen individual properties scattered across the city that have this type of protective zoning that really provides long-term management and helps ensure that when changes are made they are compatible and meet requirements. national standards.

Once the rezoning process is complete, the mayor and city council give their recommendations and make a final decision. Once a location is designated as a historic monument, the owners of the location must comply with the monument rules. Clinco says, “So the properties that are designated have to go through a review process, and then if someone tried to demolish them, they would have to go to the mayor and council for approval.”

It’s all to help protect the amazing places we have in Tucson. Most recently, the Beck House was designated a Historic Landmark in December. It was designed by architect John Beck in 1958 and built in 1960. Clinco says, “We worked with the Beck family to initiate the designation and in the middle of the designation process the house was sold and we completed the process with the new owner. “Which, according to Clinco, is not uncommon.

The process of designating a historic monument takes approximately 8 months to a year. The Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation is always looking for suggestions from the public.

TEHRAN – A total of 10 aging structures and historic properties, which are scattered throughout Isfahan Province, have recently been inscribed on the National Heritage List.

The Ministry of Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Handicrafts announced the inscriptions on Saturday in separate letters addressed to the governor general of the central province, CHTN reported.

A selection of six historic residences as well as the fortifications of Sardarb and Iraaj are among the properties added to the prestigious list.

The Kuhpayeh Caravanserai and the historic texture of the ancient village of Iraaj have also been added to the list.

From early history to modern times, defensive walls have often been necessary for cities to survive in an ever-changing world of invasion and conquest.

Fortifications in ancient times were designed primarily to defeat attempts at escalation and for the defense of territory in times of war, and were also used to consolidate the dominance of a region in times of peace.

Uruk in ancient Sumer (Mesopotamia) is one of the oldest known walled cities in the world. The ancient Egyptians also built fortresses on the borders of the Nile Valley to protect themselves from invaders from neighboring territories.

Most of the fortifications of the ancient world were built of mud bricks, often leaving them only mounds of earth for archaeologists today.

Steeped in a rich history and culture, Isfahan was once a crossroads of international trade and diplomacy in Iran. Today, it’s one of Iran’s top tourist destinations for good reason. The ancient city is full of many architectural wonders such as unparalleled Islamic buildings, bazaars, museums, Persian gardens and tree-lined boulevards. It is a city for walking, getting lost in its frenzied bazaars, dozing in beautiful gardens and meeting people.

The city has long been nicknamed Nesf-e-Jahan, which translates to “half the world”; that is, seeing that it is relevant to see the whole world. At its peak, it was also one of the largest cities in the region with a population of nearly one million.

Isfahan is famous not only for the abundance of its great historic bridges, but also for its “life-giving river”, the Zayandeh-Rood, which has long given the city an original beauty and fertility. The cool blue tiles of Isfahan’s Islamic buildings and the city’s majestic bridges contrast perfectly with the hot, dry Iranian countryside that surrounds it.

The immense Imam Square, better known as Naghsh-e Jahan Sq. (Literally meaning “Image of the World”), is one of the largest in the world (500m by 160m), and a majestic example of town planning. Built at the start of the 17th century, the UNESCO-listed square is dotted with the most interesting sites in Isfahan. Modern Isfahan is now home to heavy industry, including steel plants and a nuclear facility on its outskirts, however, its inner core wants to be preserved as a priceless gem.

The Brenham Heritage Museum is launching a new series of bi-monthly lunchtime lectures.

The museum says it will bring experts on subjects of history and culture to Brenham for live appearances.

Six speakers are featured in the lecture series, which is sponsored by longtime Brenham resident Seth McMeans and a member of the museum’s board of trustees. There may be a bonus conference later in the year.

The inaugural conference will take place on Monday February 28e at noon in the Bus Depot gallery at 313 East Alamo Street. It will be presented by Dr Andrea Roberts of Texas A&M University, who will explore half a dozen of Washington County’s largest free settlements.

Dr Roberts will provide background and details on the communities, which were created by people formerly enslaved in the decades following the Civil War. His lecture will accompany an exhibit that will be in place in the building at that time.

The second speaker is Texas historian James Bevill, known for his award-winning book The Republic of Paper. His presentation of Monday March 28e will cover his new book, Blackboards and bomb shelters: Americans’ perilous journey to China during World War II.

Lectures will take place on the fourth Monday of certain months from noon to 1 p.m. Participants can bring their own lunch or buy a sandwich on site. The first speakers will appear in the Bus Depot gallery, but as the renovation of the post office building progresses, the museum hopes to move the speakers to this building later in the year.

Addy Dewey is an art dealer, while her husband, David Dewey, is an art collector.

So it’s no surprise that their home has an artistic vibe and features well-chosen details.

When the couple purchased the Charles Frederick Keyes Lakefront Home from the Islands eight years ago, they wanted to conserve and restore the important elements of the Craftsman / Queen Anne Halfway House while bringing it into the modern era. .

The previous owner had strived to historically preserve the house at a time when teardowns were becoming more common, and the Deweys wanted to honor those efforts.

“We liked the look and the architectural integrity. It has a nice balance and proportions,” said David. “But we were also interested in the house because we didn’t think it had been so renovated.”

They embarked on a renovation soon after purchasing the place, and their efforts paid off. Ultimately, the house was named the winner of the 2017 Minneapolis Heritage Preservation Award.

A well-organized renovation

To accomplish such a feat, the Deweys hired Rehkamp Larson Architects to come up with a design.

On the historic side, the front and side façades have been brought back to the original appearance of the house from 1904. The cedar shingle siding has been restored and the original windows have been retained. The porch has also been restored to look like the real era of the house.

“It was a requirement of the heritage foundation not to change the front and side façades, which we didn’t want to do anyway,” David said.

While three of the facades have retained a historic appearance, the biggest transformations have taken place inside, as well as in the backyard.

The layout has been reconfigured from top to bottom and received a modern twist through a careful selection of materials and sculptural design touches, while making sure to preserve important details such as the house’s original moldings.

“The interior house was a block of small space, which is typical of turn-of-the-century homes,” David said. “We just wanted to open the whole thing up. One thing I love is being able to see the view of the house from end to end. When you walk through the front door, you can see straight into the garden. “

In addition to opening up the floor plan, another big change was a two-story addition in the back which added 1,700 square feet.

The addition allowed for a new kitchen, dining room and cloakroom on the ground floor. Glass walls have been included to merge the interior and exterior, as well as providing a view of the Lake of the Islands and the garden.

For better function and layout, the staircase was relocated with a new lime tree stairwell, leading to the upstairs bedrooms which included a new master suite.

Zen art and atmosphere

Art lovers also wanted prominent places to display works of art as well as a way to attach the freestanding garage to the home. The addition took care of both, connecting the two spaces with a modest gallery room with a place for rotating paintings.

“You might not even know that there was an addition when you look at the exterior. It was done in a more contemporary way, but it blends very well with the period architecture”, David said. “But when you take a closer look and see 10 to 12 foot glass windows and sliding glass doors, it’s contemporary. It’s a really good mix of old and new. Instead of just replicating. the old one, we were able to “get creative.

A house is his sanctuary, and the Deweys took that to the next level by creating spaces for introspection and reflection.

The house has a marble spa and a Zen-inspired master bathroom. Then there is the courtyard.

“We have Japanese trees. And I had a guy who knows a lot about Japanese gardens helped me with the placement of stones and things like that,” David said. “It’s not strictly a Japanese garden, but it has that feel. And then I made sure to add some elements of our own. It has a very natural feel.”

Closure hour

While the couple loved their home, it’s time to let go.

The Dewey’s are moving to Seattle, so they’ve listed their 4,200-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-bathroom home in the East Isles.

“I’m originally from Washington state and I still have family there,” David said. “And it’s also easier access to Hong Kong, where we live part of the year.”

Listing agent Bruce Birkeland said the fluidity of the spaces particularly stands out.

“It’s very reminiscent of that impressionist movement, it just has that feel. Then they have this antique piece where they blend it with this modern component,” he said. “The way they did the renovation is very congruent even though it’s two different rooms. It’s very unusual. A lot of times you walk into a house and it looks like you’ve added an addition.”

Birkeland added that it pays to have two art lovers living here.

“You have collectors and art dealers, and it makes sense that they have a house like this. Art profits from the house and the house profits from art. It is synonymous,” he said. he declared.

And just like a well-thought-out gallery, the spaces in the home are meant to be timeless so that the displays can change as needed.

While the Dewey’s style is a mix of old Asian and contemporary Western art and furniture, the space is essentially a blank canvas.

“We kept it simple and made the house in a way that isn’t too demanding with what should go in there,” David said. “That way you can put your own stamp on it with style and decor.”

Institutions, especially publicly funded cultural institutions all over the world, have certain historical priorities while remaining flexible in the face of upheaval caused by technological and political demands. Historically, they are known to perform better without the shackles of centralized power or unnecessary bureaucratic hurdles. Their ROCE (Return on Employed Capital) is not as tangible as that of iron and steel – their intangibility lives in the collective pulse of the nation, which throbs in its artistic creations, including cinema. In this context, it would be interesting to try to understand the history of the four so-called central government media units – the Film Division, the Indian Children’s Film Society, the National Film Archives of India and the Head of Film Festivals – looking at the recent merger of them with another near-inefficient unit, the National Film Development Corporation.

For many years, researchers have questioned the treatment of cinema as an object either of “information” or of “distribution”, given that it is essentially neither one nor the other. There is an obvious defect in the roots.

When the NFAI was established in 1964, 17 long years had passed since the independence of India, during which many feature film negatives had perished, before they could find their way to ‘in the archives of Pune. Imagine, we have no record of our first talkie Alam Ara, released in 1931. Ninety years is not long on the archive timescale. But if we count the real time from 1964, we only have 33 years left to enrich the archives of India, country of so many cinemas. By this time, India had already produced more than 7,500 feature films in all major languages.

Not to mention the silent feature films (produced between 1913 and 1934; numbering over 1,300, of which barely 2% survive), large chunks of the first talking films post-1931 have also disappeared. The late PK Nair, founder-conservative-director of NFAI, once told me about meeting Ardeshir Irani at Jyoti Studio (where Iranian company Imperial Films used to be) while he was looking for all the existing film copies. in laboratories and studios in Mumbai. Irani told him that a few Alam Ara footprints lay in a corner, but his son intervened, disputing him and added that “the old man had become senile.” The point, however, is an unfortunate guesswork. Had the NFAI been created a decade earlier, its vaults might have possessed copies of India’s first talkie film, and much more. This only indicates how important it is to hold record keeping exercises accountable at the national level. At the federal level, they must be given priority, empowering the film archive as an independent and less bureaucratically burdened body without resorting to excessive centralization and fusional marriages.

The United States has more than 30 major film archives, museums, and libraries, most of which are government agencies. The National Film Registry is the collection of films from the National Film Preservation Board of the United States selected for preservation for their historical, cultural, and aesthetic contributions, while the huge Library of Congress offers numerous online search options for access. easy audience. It exists to serve American citizens and the people of the world in general. A real Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam.

In fact, India should have as many archival facilities as the number of States and Union Territories has so that poor students in remote villages who wish to pursue research can have easier access not only to NFAI’s film collection, but also its books and other reading and viewing documents.

This could also be done individually by the Films Division (established in 1948), which is not only a production unit but also a custodian of Indian history on analogue and digital media since independence. Most of the great Indian filmmakers, in addition to many young filmmakers and artists, have made films for the FD, making the country’s cultural and audiovisual heritage rich and palpable. These must be freely disseminated among the people preserving them with care and compassion. No private entrepreneur would have ventured into this area because it would not be a good “business” proposition for him.

In its library, the CFSI has many films which are to be widely distributed across the country. There are a number of national and international award winners, offering engagement to young minds. Over half a century ago, FD and CFSI produced a magnificent mix of fictional and non-fiction animated films and puppet films to instill good civic sense as well. I was part of the monthly Sunday morning showings of CFSI films at a cinema in the Kandivali suburb of Mumbai. They were organized by practicing doctors attached to the Kandivali Medical Association. The screenings saw hundreds of children and young students enthusiastically gather to watch films; the filmmakers would attend some of the programs and interact with the children. All of these activities were carried out on a non-profit basis. The word “monetization” had not entered our consciousness.

NFAI regularly hosts screenings of rare films from its collection in its campus auditorium in Pune (open to the public on a registered membership basis), while the FD and CFSI have their biennial international film festivals. I have closely followed the launch of the Mumbai International Film Festival (MIFF) for documentary, short and animated films by the Films Division, which has trained many young filmmakers from this country.

Then there is the DFF, founded in 1973, which, besides organizing the Indian International Film Festival (IFFI) and overseas events, also takes care of several other cinema-related events, including the Dadasaheb Phalke Awards.

All of these bodies under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting function individually as well as in coordination, each carrying its own history, recording the many national ups and downs as public services without any dominant monetary or profit motive.

How about creating an Umbrella Chalachitra Academy? The only state that has one is Kerala, which effectively and efficiently manages all cinema related activities under the Kerala State Chalachitra Academy. Such an umbrella academy would help keep the cultural ethics of a nation under too centralized dispensation.
