14th International Docomomo Conference

Lisbon 2016

September 6 – September 9

In pursuit of the mission of docomomo, as updated in the Eindhoven-Seoul Statement 2014, the theme of the 14th International docomomo Conference was “Adaptive Reuse. The Modern Movement Towards the Future”. The aim was to
promote the conservation and (re)use of buildings and sites of the Modern Movement, to foster and disseminate the development of appropriate techniques and methods of conservation and (re)use, and to explore and develop new ideas for the future of a sustainable built environment, based on the past experiences of the Modern Movement.

The Conference took place in Lisbon, where the docomomo International Headquarters were based (Técnico-University of Lisbon), from 6 to 9 September 2016 at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, the first Modern Movement site recognized as National Monument.
