DOCOMOMO included in AIArchitect Special Edition: Preserving Modern Buildings
The March 7, 2008 AIArchitect Special Edition: Preserving Modern Buildings focuses on the current concern of "What do you save?” as building-by-building our stock of a certain age is staring down the fundamental question of “restore or replace.”
The newsletter includes a profile of DOCOMOMO/US's founding president Theodore H.M. Prudon, PhD, FAIA, as well as an excerpt from his new book, Preservation of Modern Architecture (to be released this spring by John Wiley and Sons).
"Preserving Modern Architecture in the Postmodern World" by DOCOMOMO/NE president David E. Fixler, discusses the importance of preservation strategies that both reveal and clarify the physical manifestation of a broad social and philosophical movement.
