Under Threat: Miyakonojo Civic Hall
In the words of Thomas Gunny Harboe, President of the ICOMOS International Scientific Committee on Twentieth Century Heritage (ISC20C):
“Despite the current conservation issues the building seems to be in an overall good state of conservation and therefore the demolition is not acceptable. It is necessary to think about reuse, and not destruction, in order to promote sustainability and best practices o Heritage Management and conservation.
Docomomo International congratulates and supports all efforts already being conducted by ICOMOS, ISC20C and ICOMOS Japan, in the sense of protecting and preventing the demolition of this building.
