Docomomo US is thrilled to welcome our 18th regional chapter, Docomomo US/Colorado. The chapter encompasses the entire state of Colorado, with members all along the Front Range and Western Slope.
Organized in 2019, the Colorado Chapter is excited to be the newest regional chapter of Docomomo US. Given the abundance of modern buildings in Colorado, the Chapter encompasses the entire state, with members all along the Front Range and Western Slope. Across the state are icons of modern design, from the nationally recognized to the hidden regional master’s gems. Among these icons is NCAR Mesa Laboratory and USAFA Cadet Chapel to the lesser known Aspen Center for Physics, Mile High Center, and the work of Colorado’s own regional masters Eugene Sternberg, Charles Sink, Charles Deaton, Charles Haertling, Victor Hornbein and many others.
