Docomomo?

Docomomo International (International Committee for Documentation and Conservation of Buildings, Sites and Neighbourhoods of the Modern Movement), founded in 1988, is an organization for the research and conservation of modern architecture. The organization currently comprises chapters from approximately 70 different countries, all over the world.

Docomomo Suomi Finland acts as an expert organization for modern architecture in Finland. It procures information and international contacts within its own field of expertise. The most central part of Finnish Docomomo’s work is maintaining a selection of important architectural and environmental sites. The list presently contains nearly 90 sites. The society also supports publication activities within the field and organizes events and field trips to interesting sites of modern architecture.

The activities of Docomomo International as well as the Finnish chapter are open to anyone interested in the field!
