Members are the force behind Docomomo US
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. And just this year, the 20th Century Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright was added to the list. We congratulate our colleagues who continued to carry this effort that took many years to accomplish.
Since our founding, hundreds of significant modern sites have been saved or designated because of our collective work, our network, and people like you.
Join or renew your membership today and help us continue the work of preserving our modern heritage.
Docomomo US is able to put its weight behind important preservation battles, and tip the scales in our favor, because we are backed up by members like you. Terrace Plaza Hotel, the first International-style hotel in the country, designed by a young Natalie de Blois of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, is a great example. Vacant and deteriorating for years, Docomomo US supported Cincinnati Preservation Association in its efforts to save the building from inappropriate alterations, achieve local and national designation, and be reused.
