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.
While we will not physically be together, the online format will provide excellent opportunities for participating in educational sessions, experiencing tours, and connecting with speakers, sponsors and each other. We also find it exciting that virtual events break down many of the financial and geographic barriers to participation for what we expect will be our largest Symposium attendance ever.
