Tour Day

The only national event of its kind, Tour Day is an annual celebration of modern architecture and design where the public and like-minded organizations across the country participate in a tour or event.

Tour Day 2021

The only national program of its kind, Tour Day is devoted to the appreciation of modern architecture in the United States. Tours and events focused on architecture and design of the Modern Movement are hosted by Docomomo US chapters, partners, and leading voices in preservation. Tour Day events can be hosted by nearly anyone interested in or with access to a significant modern building or site.

This year's thematic focus is Travel & Leisure. Whether hitting the road by car or jetting off to exotic locations, modern ideals and aesthetics can be found just about everywhere you look. As we begin 2021 with some cautious optimism, Docomomo US is excited to explore what we have been missing in 2020. With the travel industry heavily impacted because of the pandemic, this is also an opportunity to help a stuggling sector of the economy while delving into some of the great architecture, landscapes, sites, and stories of our modern travel heritage.

Tour Day 2021 will take place Saturday October 9th as well as throughout the month.
