Docomomo US 1st Annual Modern Architecture Scavenger Hunt


Image details

Architecture buffs get your sneakers on and get ready to discover modern architecture across all five boroughs. Docomomo US is thrilled to launch our first annual Modern Architecture Scavenger Hunt during the Open House New York weekend. Grab your friends and a camera, and photograph yourself in front of modern architecture for a chance to win great prizes.

On Friday, October 14th at 5:00pm, participants should log on to for the official list of scavenger hunt items. The goal is to assemble a team and photograph as many items on the list as possible. Each item is worth a variety of points and contest entries must be submitted before the contest ends on Sunday, October 16th at midnight.

To collect the points, you or your team will need to decipher the scavenger hunt clues and take a photo of the entire team in front of the answer. If, for example, it says "a photo of the Ford Foundation building," the picture should be of you AND the Ford Foundation building. If you're not in the picture, we have no idea when the photo was taken and the photo will not count. All team members must be in each photo and a team identifier should be included with the photo. Old or tampered photos will be disqualified.

When you're ready to submit your pictures, upload the pictures to Flickr, label and tag them with “Docomomo US” and “openhousenewyork”, and share them on the Docomomo US Flickr Group. Winners will be announced on Monday, October 24th, 2011.

Organize your team today and come back on October 14th at 5:00pm for the list of items!
