I wanted to remind everyone that a meeting to form a local chapter of Docomomo will be held on Thursday (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 but much more help is needed to ensure this effort is a success. Docomomo is a 25-year old non-profit organization dedicated to the documentation and conservation of buildings (like the endangered GEICO building above), sites and neighborhoods of the modern movement.
Please RSVP to Thomas C. Jester, AIA, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see many of you at the meeting.
