About Us

Docomomo WEWA is a local community of individuals who share a passion for Northwest Modernism. Founded in Seattle in 1998, as a chapter of DOCOMOMO_US, we are dedicated to the Documentation and Conservation of the Modern Movement in Western Washington.

In 2005, Docomomo WEWA incorporated as a non-profit, 501c(3) educational and charitable organization. We continue to produce educational programs with the generous efforts of volunteers and a dedicated Board of Directors. Over the past eight years, we have organized over seventy events, reaching an audience of hundreds, including home owners, designers, preservationists, students, and civic leaders. We have also served as advocates for Northwest Modernism by supporting preservation efforts, preparing landmark nominations, and creating a register of significant buildings.

Our Mission
Docomomo WEWA promotes appreciation and awareness of Modern architecture and design in Western Washington through education and advocacy.
