Our Mission

Docomomo US/NOCA promotes the study, interpretation, documentation, and protection of the architecture, landscape, and urban design of the Modern Movement in Northern California. We promote the exchange of knowledge about this important legacy which extends from the planned city and the iconic monument to the house next door.

Committed to the principle that Modern design merits the attention and preservation received by earlier periods, we maintain a continuous and constructive dialogue with national, state, and local preservation authorities and organizations as well as with building owners, developers, and designers in many disciplines. We thank you for your interest and hope that you'll join us in our endeavors.
