DO.CO.MO.MO. International

www.docomomo.com

DO.CO.MO.MO. International was founded in 1988 at the School of Architecture in Eindhoven (The Netherlands) based on the belief that the preservation of modern architecture presented an urgent worldwide challenge that required immediate collaboration across boundaries and through mutual exchanges. The acronym stands for "The international committee for the DOcumentation and COnservation of buildings, sites and neighbourhoods of the MOdern MOvement".

Modern architects created new, uplifting and innovative buildings that received worldwide recognition through media and printed matter. Yet the pioneering techniques and materials they often used involved unforeseen problems. Techniques became obsolete and materials deteriorated rapidly due to the high level of experimentation. Poor maintenance and a low level of public awareness generated numerous inappropriate and reckless alterations. As a result, many creations of the "modern movement", from emblematic masterpieces to "ordinary treasures", were left to decay or destroyed. The institution of DO.CO.MO.MO. coincided with serious threats to one of the icons of European modernism. The Zonnestraal Sanatorium in the vicinity of Hilversum, designed by Johannes Duiker between 1928 and 1934, were to be torn down. Its slender structural elements and the crystalline transparency of its vertical surfaces had suffered due to scarce maintenance, let alone the fact that the original function was eventually lost (tuberculosis had largely disappeared or was successfully treated with antibiotics rather than exposure to the sun). Therefore, its architectural, technical, utilitarian and social performances had lost their raison d'ĂȘtre. DO.CO.MO.MO. was created under the pressure to save the Zonnestraal. On March 21, 2008 DO.CO.MO.MO. International was officially granted NGO status, with operational relationships with UNESCO.

DO.CO.MO.MO. International is an associate partner with RKM_Save Urban Heritage and will participate in the Steering Committee, the international symposia and workshops.
