Docomomo US’ national Tour Day is an annual celebration of modern architecture and design. Held on or near the first Saturday in October, Tour Day invites the public and like-minded organizations to celebrate modern architecture and design by participating in or hosting a tour. Tour Day events are free in many locations or discounted for Docomomo US members. The first Tour Day celebration was held in 2007 with tours in Georgia, North Texas, Chicago, New Jersey, Boston and Seattle.
Tour Day events can be hosted by nearly anyone interested in or with access to a significant modern building or site. Tour Day events can also be much more than just a tour. Some of the best events include pre-tour lectures, meet-and-greet with the architects and post-event receptions. If you have an idea for a tour that celebrates modernism in your area and would like more information, email us at tourday(at)docomomo-us.org.
