Glass House joins Explore Modern Houses Partnership
Docomomo US believes one of the best ways to foster increased awareness and appreciation for significant sites is to experience them firsthand, which is why we started the Explore Modern Houses Partnership. Today, we are excited to welcome the Glass House to the partnership.
Your Impact on Modernism
It has been nearly twenty-five years since the founding of Docomomo US in 1995. Working as a small group of volunteer professionals in uncharted territory, we laid the foundation for our work by contributing suggestions for the first tentative list of American Modern heritage proposed for inclusion on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Since our founding, hundreds of significant modern sites have been saved or designated because of our collective work, our network, and people like you.
