The 11th annual International Docomomo Conference: Living in the Urban Modernity is just around the corner.  The proposed program will include several sessions: Modern Living, Civic and Socail Infrastructure, The Modern City, Technology for a Modern Habitat, and The University City.

The workshop portion of the conference will take place in the Colonia Cuauhtémoc section of Mexico City from August 19 to 23, 2010. Docomomo Mexico has secured the studio of Luis Barragan, just in front of the Luis Barragan House as the workshop site.

Tours during the conference include visits to modernist buildings designed by architects such as Mario Pani, Felix Candela, Enrique de la Mora, Ludwig Meis van der Rohe, and more.
