Portugal, "perhaps all his works have OUV". That is a stunning statement, when considering more than 400 surviving FLW buildings.

Referral seems a real possibility, which I am not against. Interesting how no one immediately supports inscription. Did I speak too soon . . .Vietnam representative speaks . . .

I think the US may prefer Referral instead of inscription if its only 4 buildings!

Vietnam suggests cutting it down to four buildings: Unity Temple, Robie House, Guggenheim (and I missed the last one I'm guessing Fallingwater)

Croatia and Burkina Faso(? my French isn't good enough to pick up the nuance) joins in with that idea.

So inscribe 4 of them, or we stop trying!

Financially, it seems not.

Financial argument is real, because no national body protects these buildings. Secondly, to organize all the stakeholders again will be challenging. Seemingly LA will never get a WHS! Now I REALLY prefer the referral, add more FLW buildings not less! Just improve the dossier and explain the impact with a developed comparative analysis.

DAY 1
- 4 overturned Deferrals, 9 new world heritage sites and one cliffhanger!

Stećci—Medieval Tombstones (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, Serbia) Deferral changed to Inscribe
Excavated Remains of Nalanda Mahavihara (India) Deferral changed to Inscribe
Persian Qanat (Islamic Republic of Iran) Deferral changed to Inscribe
Archaeological site of Ani (Turkey) Deferral changed to Inscribe
Zuojiang Huashan Rock Art Cultural Landscape (China) Inscribe
Archaeological Site of Philippi (Greece) Inscribe
Nan Madol: Ceremonial Centre of Eastern Micronesia (Federated States of Micronesia) Inscribe
Antequera Dolmens Site (Spain) Inscribe
Gibraltar Neanderthal Caves and Environments (United Kingdom) Inscribe

Remaining Cultural Nominations
- Only the FLW nomination will be scrutinized, this is my only chance for an inscription, but the ICOMOS critique was very severe (perhaps justifiably).

Key Works of Modern Architecture by Frank Lloyd Wright (United States of America)
Antigua Naval Dockyard and Related Archaeological Sites (Antigua and Barbuda)
The Architectural Work of Le Corbusier, an Outstanding Contribution to the Modern Movement (Argentina, Belgium, France, Germany, India, Japan, Switzerland)
Pampulha Modern Ensemble (Brazil)
Archaeological Site and Historic Centre of Panamá City [Significant boundary modification]

meltwaterfalls:
Unity Temple, Robbie House, Guggenheim, Fallingwater

If this goes through tomorrow I will have visited 2/4 serial components (Unity Temple and Guggenheim), but it will be so disappointing to me to leave out both California properties and both Wisconsin properties!
