The 19th International Docomomo Conference Announcement
DOCOMOMO International is pleased to announce that the 19th International DOCOMOMO Conference to be organized in 2026 has been granted to DOCOMOMO US and the US/ California Chapter, based on and following the unanimous recommendation of the DOCOMOMO Advisory Board.
During the 2022 Conference in Valencia, it was stated in the Council Meeting that DOCOMOMO International would like to receive proposals for the 2026 Conference ultimately December 2023. In summer 2023, DOCOMOMO International was thrilled to receive a preliminary proposal by DOCOMOMO US to host the 2026-conference at the Los Angeles region. No other preliminary proposals are known to the Executive Committee.
We all remember how difficult it was to receive a proposal for the 2024 Conference and DOCOMOMO International is once again thankful to DOCOMOMO Chile and DOCOMOMO Brazil, as well as the UAE representatives for having submitted proposals from which the Chile was chosen to host. In fact two years are too little time to prepare a huge conference like this.
The Executive Committee and the Advisory Board want to draw the attention of the National Working Parties to the 2028 Conference for which we would like to receive proposals until September 2024, to be voted on during the Council Meeting in Santiago in December 2024.
A separate call for proposal will be launched and more information will follow!
