Get ready for some deep dish - we're headed to Chicago!
As Docomomo US celebrates its 25th anniversary, we are headed back to where it all began, Chicago, Illinois. It was in 1995 that a group of volunteers gathered during the first Preserving the Recent Past conference to set in motion a Docomomo chapter in the United States. As we look back on 25 years of preserving modernism, we hope you will join Docomomo US and Docomomo US/Chicago for a deep dive of where we've been and what challenges lie in store.
CROSSROADS OF MODERN AMERICA

Due to the impact of COVID-19 the Symposium was postponed.
The new dates are May 26-29, 2021.
Join us for the 2020-21 Docomomo US National Symposium where we explore our thematic vision which views innovation and change through the lens of the modern movement. Experience Chicago's history and the prospects for the recognition, interpretation, preservation and extension of these forms and ideas of modernism in the middle of America.
