For the 12th time the International Docomomo Conference will take place from August, 7-10, 2012 in Finland.
The time of the proposed conference coincides with the greater Helsinki region being the World Design Capital 2012 – so your attendance will be even richer with numerous additional events and exhibitions. Next year`s proposed theme is The Survival of Modern – From Coffee Cup to General Plan and you can submit your papers until October 15, 2011:
Docomomo invites architects, researchers, historians and other parties involved in the process of preservation, conservation, renovation or transformation of modern towns and buildings to investigate on the theme: The Survival of Modern – From Coffee Cup to Plan. The proposed theme gives an opportunity to discuss modernist architecture and town-planning from a holistic point of view. The concepts of space and scale in modernist architecture are challenged in an age of new ecological and economical needs for more building density and energy-saving technical solutions. The theme also builds on and adds to the themes of previous Docomomo conferences. /press release/
