This year is an important one for our efforts to finally establish a DC chapter of Docomomo US. As the DC chapter formally gets off the ground, we will need your help to make it a success. Now is the perfect time to get involved and help spread the word about the the importance of modern architecture that is increasingly threatened here in the DC area, such as Marcel Breuer’s American Press Institute in Reston. The next chapter meeting will be held on Thursday, Feb. 20 at 6 pm at the office of Quinn Evans Architects, 2121 Ward Place, NW, 4th Floor. The meeting will focus on:
- the status of the chapter’s application for formal recognition
- development of the 2014 work plan
- assignment of members to various committees, including Documentation, Communications, Programs and Advocacy
Hope to see many of you there to contribute to this effort.
