Default WMF wants to preserve aviation history from 30ies

See

----------
Helsinki-Malmi Airport, Finland-As Modernism becomes increasingly recognized
as an integral part of our architectural and cultural heritage, WMF's
preservation efforts are extending beyond residential and commercial sites
to embrace a broad range of building types, including recent industrial and
technological structures. Reflecting this, the 2004 Watch list includes the
Helsinki-Malmi Airport. With its acclaimed functionalist architecture, the
Airport, which opened in 1936, is a representative and beautiful example of
airport development in Europe in the early days of commercial aviation.

Although the Airport has two landmarked buildings, and has been in
continuous use since its construction, the city of Helsinki wants to
demolish it to make way for housing for up to 10,000 people. As a result,
the owners and operators of the Helisnki-Malmi Airport, along with local
residents and citizens, have formed the Friends of Malmi Airport Society to
seek its preservation as an architectural treasure that still serves its
original function.

Call to preserve world monuments:

Aboriginal rock art, said to be at risk from industrial development, has
made it onto a list of 100 sites nominated for preservation by the World
Monuments Fund.
The WMF, an US based organization dedicated to preserving historic,
artistic, and architectural sites worldwide, describes the rock art as
Australia's greatest non-European cultural heritage site.

The Fund's 2004 World Monuments Watch list also includes the Great Wall of
China, an airport in Finland, ancient palaces in Iraq and Shakleton's hut in
Antarctica.

President of the WMF Bonnie Burnham tells Pete Jackson tourism and war have
taken a toll on many of the sites.
