Didn’t get enough modernism at last month’s Modernism Week in Palm Springs?  Lucky for you, the celebration of ‘all things modern’ continues during Spring Break 2017.  This year Docomomo US will be hosting its National Symposium in conjunction with Phoenix Modern during Phoenix Modern Week in Arizona.  The entire event will take place from March 24th-April 2nd.

From Docomomo US:

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.

Join us in Phoenix, Arizona for the Fifth Annual Docomomo US National Symposium March 29th through April 2nd, 2017, in collaboration with Modern Phoenix Week. The 2017 Symposium entitled Modernism and Climate will look how modern design approached desert climates creatively and how those design strategies continue to be relevant in light of our search for sustainable solutions and what we can learn from those creative efforts. As the only national event dedicated to all aspects of the preservation of Modernism, the symposium will bring together world renowned designers, scholars, students, and professionals from around the country.
