The World Monuments Fund www.wmf.org announced Wednesday that it placed the Salk Institute for Biological Studies on its 2008 Watch List of the 100 Most Endangered Sites in the world because of the proposed Master Plan currently under consideration by San Diego public officials.

The list is released every two years and is meant as a "call to action" by this presigious organization. The list is compiled by an independent group of international experts. The announcement underscores the world-wide concern for one of San Diego's most important architectural treasures.

The Salk Master Plan had already drawn fire locally in San Diego, receiving the Grand Onion Award from the San Diego Architectural Foundation and a listing by SOHO (Save Our Heritage Organisation) on its 11 Most Endangered sites list in San Diego. The San Diego Sierra Club Coastal Committee, San Diego Coastal Alliance, Friends of Rose Canyon, and Friends of Carmel Mountain Preserve issued strong objections to the proposed Master Plan this week.

With Wednesday's listing by the World Monument Fund, the urgency to change the plan to protect the site and the renowned courtyard views went international.
Areas of concern include a plan to subdivide the former city park property, given to the institute in 1962 for the purposes of “research and education,” into four parcels. The plan has also been criticized for proposing a fitness and day care center on the fragile southern mesa, uses never intended by Kahn; a 94,000 “big-box” building on the east parking lot obscuring the public’s view of the modernist Kahn building from Torrey Pines Road; and a four-story building on the north mesa clearly visible from the famous Luis Barragan designed courtyard that threatens to breach the 30-foot height limit along the coast.
