Public Spaces - Inside and Out

October 13, 2018

 

Docomomo US is excited to announce the line-up of tours and events taking place during our twelfth 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 on the second Saturday and throughout the month of October.

 

This year’s theme, "Public Spaces - Inside and Out” builds upon Docomomo US' 2018 advocacy theme and invites people everywhere to explore the innovative design concepts of common spaces set aside for public use while bringing attention to the threats facing many of these significant places.
