T he international collections of the Library of Congress started with the arrival of the Thomas Jefferson library in 1815. Jefferson's 6,487 volumes, sold to Congress for $23,950, expanded the scope of the Library far beyond the bounds of a legislative resource. Jefferson was a man of encyclopedic interests, and his library included works on architecture, the arts, science, literature, and geography. It contained books in French, Spanish, German, Latin, Greek, and one three-volume statistical work in Russian. Jefferson believed that the American legislature needed ideas and information on all subjects and in many languages in order to govern a democracy. His belief, reflected in the nature of his library, transformed the Library of Congress. T oday the Library's international collections are unparalleled in many respects. Its collections are comprehensive in scope and include research materials in more than 450 languages and in many media. Approximately two-thirds of the Library's books are in languages other than English. Its Chinese, Russian, Japanese, Korean, and Polish collections are the largest outside of those countries, and the Arabic collections are the largest outside of Egypt. Its collection of Luso-Hispanic materials is the largest in the world. These world culture collections total in the millions, and the variety of materials is astounding and includes scrolls, maps, books, documents, prints, photographs, posters, periodicals, film and recorded sound.

Nature versus tradition
Eliel Saarinen: Railway Station, Helsinki, 1905-1919. F innish architecture means, almost without exception, modern architecture, or at least the built environment as it has been realised over the last 100 years. It could hardly be otherwise, for the building stock as a whole is young; less than 13% of it dates back to before 1920. There are scarcely any architectural drawings to be found from before the 19th century and even in the early 19th century very few of them were actually made. One cannot, therefore, speak of an actual academic tradition, at least not in the same sense as in the countries closer to Central Europe. I n the absence of a strong academic tradition, however, the weightiness of such a tradition has not been present to restrict the absorption of new influences. From very early on, there has been an open-minded attitude to the making of architecture; the ideal of a modern, dynamic nation was to be expressed through the formal language of new public buildings. When architectural training began at the end of the 19th century, women were able to take part at once. Indeed, the Finn Signe Hornborg was one of the first trained women architects in the whole world - so far, an earlier example has only been found in the United States - and

    Prologue Dialogue between civilisations
    Material and energy resources continue to be wasted everywhere. The effects can be felt at both the local and global level. The consequences of such wastage – from changes in the climate to the growing prosperity gap between societies and nations – are leading to ever greater political dangers, not the least of which is terrorism.
    One of the reasons for these developments is undoubtedly the attitude taken towards mankind’s intellectual resources, including the moral concepts inherent in architecture and urban and landscape planning. Here too – as is the case with material values – intellectual, ethical and moral values are frequently ignored or wasted. The sense of responsibility to society and the environment, innovative skills, creativity, imagination and many of the other unlimited resources of the human intellect and conscience are not exploited or are channelled in the wrong direction.
    Dialogue between cultures
    Following the terrorist attacks in September 2001 and the response of the victims, a new urgency has been given to the need for a global peace policy. It must include the global economy and respect for the environment and it must be developed in the context of a discussion on values that is being conducted in the dialogue of ideas, sciences, cultures and generations. Architects and other planners intend to make their own contribution to this discussion during the XXI World Congress of Architecture.
    Architecture and urban and landscape planning can act as positive symbols of the forces of globalisation and make the process of globalisation environmentally compatible and socially just in the context of a discussion on values between the cultures and disciplines. The forces of globalisation cannot be stopped, but they can help to bring about a better and more environmentally compatible quality of life and a fairer distribution in the context of global civilisation.

    Culture in Europe and in Rotterdam
    Culture represents a collective sociological phenomenon that concerns behaviour in a given time, the expression of a people's subjective intellect, and a regional flavour. In cities, states and countries a variety of cultures can be distinguished. With Europe's inexorable march towards unification the question being asked in many countries is "what of our cultural identity?" The programmes of the European Union together with the programme of the cultural capitals can positively influence the preservation of cultural inheritance. Every city has its own past and future, and Rotterdam is no different. Rotterdam was Cultural Capital in 2001. The city of Brugge (Belgium) is Cultural Capital 2002.

    That architecture can have such a profound affect on people from somany countries and cultures surely illustrates it’s importance.
    Old Boy News
    The arts, where have they gone?
    Open Letter to Student’s, Staff and Parents

    Is it not time that the other aspects of life other than sport were venerated at schools like Glenwood? I ask this question having recently reviewed the school web site in which the full scope of arts rests in the sphere of debating. A topic which was sadly not sufficiently open in my days at Glenwood. The apartheid regime made sure of that. What they sadly did too was to stifle cultural development. Why am I banging this particular drum you may ask. During my studies at Durban University it became clear that the education was Euro-centric and little was taught of the fantastic indigenous architecture and art that is South Africa’s true heritage. In this I mean all the cultures of South Africa, not just those of the majority or a particular minority, but those of all elements that make up the richness of our society.
    Durban in particular is blessed with a multicultural society that is colourful and though influenced by it’s Southern African setting, maintains the essence from which they originated. It is sad that a number of the elements which inform a culture are considered not examinable by the educational institute. These being music and performance or theatre arts. An odd dilemma as they are at university level.
    There is much work to be done in South Africa to remedy the transgressions of the past. The arts can be a powerful aid that should be facilitated and encouraged, not down graded.

    MSc Programme Home Page Graduates Index Graduates Stories Antonio García Fernández, Spain It is commonly accepted that the influence of images are part of the process of knowledge and interpretation of our real world. At the same time when the amount of information grows the use of the fragmented vision of pictures increases, and it is more and more difficult to distinguish between the images. Our new world is formed by a territorial collage where distance and time do not exist anymore. This virtual world translates from Africa to America without any social and cultural information. Only the facts are noticeable. We live through revolutions, wars, natural disasters and social events via a collection of faces without words. The events change each day and we have no time to ask about its end and about the life of its inhabitants after the event. Sometimes adding these notices, somebody writes a history, in that case, playing with our memory we regained the past. The cinema uses, for some stories, places of our real world like a documentary where the past exists behind or as part of the actors. In some sessions, like in a puzzle, using movies, we explain better some of these events. In Delft, I lived together with people from all around the world. I shared my course with people from seven nationalities and three continents. During this period the most important event was to understand our own history. I was an actor in the events played in their countries. When something happened or some events occurred I found somebody that could explain me its real context, the way that the events developed and the aims of their inhabitants. Now, I can identify with most parts of these countries and try to understand their cultures through their personal history.

    - What is your culture?
    The word 'culture' can mean many different things. It includes art, music, literature, customs, religions, ways of life, languages and individual qualities which make up a particular group of people.
    We all belong to different groups. The groups we all belong to are families, communities, towns or cities, countries. These groups help make us who we are. We choose to belong to other groups because we want to learn a skill or to meet or help people. These are groups like sports clubs, drama groups, music clubs, or the guides and scouts. Each group we belong to has a different identity. We care more about our school than other schools. These feelings come from belonging to a particular school. The same can be said for any group we belong to. We all belong to more than one group, and we can belong to different groups at different times.
    Caribbean poet John Agard has written some very enjoyable poems on identity, belonging and what makes up who we are. Read and listen to them here!
    Countries can also belong to different groups. Countries that belong to the Commonwealth of Nations have joined because they want to share ideas, experiences and skills.
