Public Spaces - Inside and Out

Tour Day 2018 is set to take place Saturday, October 13, 2018. This year's theme is Public Spaces-Inside and Out and is centered around Docomomo US' 2018 Advocacy Theme.

 

As one of Docomomo US’ annual national events, Tour Day works to raise the awareness of and appreciation for buildings, interiors and landscapes designed in the United States during the mid-20th century. Now celebrating its twelfth anniversary, Tour Day invites organizations and people across the country to take stock of the significant 20th century built design in their state, city, region or neighborhood and celebrate that work with a tour.


Host a Tour

 

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. Register your tour or event by filling out the form below or 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.
