From 16 to 19 September 2008 the tenth International DoCoMoMo Conference, also celebrating the twentieth anniversary of the organization, will take place at the new building of the Faculty of Architecture of the Delft University of Technology and at the Van Nelle Factory in Rotterdam.
The legacy of the Modern Movement has gained legendary status, largely as a result of the appreciation of the masterworks and the visionary architectural concepts. In the reality of everyday life, however, it has been difficult to maintain the architectural creations of the Modern Movement in such a way that they still reflect the original intentions of their designers.
Docomomo invites architects, historians, and other parties involved in the processes of preservation, renovation and transformation of modern buildings to investigate the paradox of the modern monument, and to reflect on the manifold dilemmas of change and continuity. It is time to once again face the challenge of change.
