06-09.09.2022 | 17th International Docomomo Conference | València, Spain

The Universitat Politècnica de València, through the School of Architecture is presenting the 17th Docomomo International Conference to be hosted in València, Spain, from 6th to 9th September, 2022.

Directed by Carmen Jordá and Maite Palomares, the Conference it is included in the official programme of Valencia World Design Capital 2022 and is the most important event as far as Architectural Design is concerned.

We proposed “Modern Design: Social Commitment & Quality of Life” as the Conference Theme because we aim to present The Modern Movement’s legacy in a wider context, not simply individual architects or buildings but the values of the Modern Movement and their impact on society in general. The Conference, therefore, is organized through five sections, analysing the specific contributions of Avant-Gardes, Latin America, Women, Iberia or the Internationalization of Modern Movement Designs.

During the Conference invited speakers, recognised specialist in Modern Design will be making they own personal contributions to the general theme. Those individual viewpoints will provide us with a global perspective of how modern design and its complementary aspects developed.
