Help Establish a DC Docomomo Chapter; Meeting Nov. 21

 Pan Am building

Are you interested in learning more about modern architecture in the DC area and working to help preserve these structures?  If so, please attend a planning meeting aimed at establishing a local chapter of Docomomo, a 25-year old non-profit organization dedicated to the documentation and conservation of buildings, sites and neighborhoods of the modern movement.

The meeting will be held on Nov. 21 in the boardroom of the headquarters of the American Institute of Architects in Washington, D.C., from 6-8 p.m. (The AIA is located at 1735 New York Avenue, NW.) All those interested are encouraged to attend and actively participate in the formation of the metro DC chapter of the preservation group. There have been several earlier planning meetings this year to get the ball rolling but much more help is needed to ensure this effort is a success. 

Please RSVP to Thomas C. Jester, AIA, at tjester@quinnevans.com. Hope to see many of you at the meeting.
