After years of hopeful deliberation, a Southern California chapter of Docomomo US is finally taking off. A small organizational committee worked together to establish the mission and geographic scope of this chapter, which will cover the entire Southern California region: from Santa Barbara to San Diego and everything in between. Working with local preservation organizations throughout the vast region, Docomomo US/SoCal hopes to assist with advocacy efforts and increase awareness of Modern resources and regional movements.

Docomomo US/SoCal looks forward to inaugural programs on National Tour Weekend, 2013.
Our mission is to increase awareness and celebrate the unique legacy of Southern California's Modern Movement and its influences through education, documentation, and advocacy. We partner with other local, regional, and statewide organizations and agencies to enhance understanding and appreciation of the area's diverse Modern resources.
