The Docomomo US National Symposium is the primary event in the United States for those interested in the preservation of modern architecture to gather, discuss, share and explore the preservation of heritage of the second half of the 20th Century and its legacy and importance today.


Docomomo US has held an annual “Face to Face” meeting each year since 2002. Beginning in 2010, the annual Face to Face invited guests to participate and expand the discussions and engage the organization more broadly.
