The Docomomo US National Symposium is the primary event in the United States for professionals to discuss and share efforts to preserve modern architecture and meet leading practitioners and industry professionals. This year, the symposium will take place in New Haven, CT, June 21–24. Participants will experience one of the country’s most densely woven collections of midcentury art, design, and architecture and consider the triumphs and complexities surrounding the design and building of the Modern city and the impacts on our collective communities.
The Call for Abstracts is now open. Researchers, practitioners, and enthusiasts involved in the process of preservation, conservation, renovation or transformation of buildings, sites and neighborhoods of the Modern Movement are invited to submit abstracts of papers or full sessions that investigate the theme: “Complexities of the Modern American City” or explore New Haven’s Modern heritage.
