Announcing our New Public Name: World Heritage USA

Recognizing the need to reach more people who care about our shared global heritage, the board of trustees has decided to adopt the public-facing name World Heritage USA. We remain officially the United States National Committee of the International Council on Monuments and Sites, the primary U.S. organization supporting the World Heritage Convention and a wide spectrum of preservation activity both in the U.S. and abroad.

This effort is a refinement of our mission and programs: to promote the conservation of heritage globally while fostering connections to the international heritage community. We accomplish this through advocacy, education, and the exchange of people and ideas. Our International Members will continue to be ICOMOS members and our relationship within ICOMOS will not change.

Heritage at Risk: Philadelphia🛑 Heritage Alert 🛑

ICOMOS is issuing a worldwide #HeritageAlert to amplify awareness of the threat to the Philadelphia Police Headquarters 🚧🏗️ 👷

🏷The City of Philadelphia intends to sell the old police center building, which it is not currently listed as a historic site or monument in Philadelphia, leaving it vulnerable without institutional protection.

🧱Built in a circular shape with concrete-style architecture, the Philadelphia Police Headquarters building distinguishes itself from other buildings in Philadelphia. The building was designed by the Geddes Brecher Qualls and Cunningham firm, engineer August Komendant and Eastern Schokbeton engineers.
