How has the advancement of the Modern Movement design ethos, through geo-political expansion from the Western world, challenged the cultural foundation and aesthetic heritage of Asia?

The 13th International Docomomo Conference, hosted in Asia for the first time, seeks to explore the powerful complexities of expansion and conflict. Examining the effects of the expansion of a Eurocentric design philosophy into distinctly individual, pre-existing yet violently colonized cultures, the organization declares that "conflict is not necessarily a pejorative but…a challenge for the future."

An international NGO, DOCOMOMO works across the world to document, conserve, and restore the architecture and urbanism born of the Modern Movement. Crossing the divide between old and new, east and west, the coalition promotes the nuanced and sensitive understanding of the international significance of Modern Movement philosophies. For more information, please see the event's official website.
