About Us

Docomomo Hawaii is a non-profit group dedicated to promoting public education on the preservation of Modern architecture in the Pacific Islands.


Docomomo (Documentation and Conservation of buildings, sites and neighborhoods of the Modern Movement) promotes the study, interpretation and protection of the architecture, landscape and urban design of the Modern Movement. Docomomo US is an all-volunteer group comprised of enthusiasts, historians, architects, designers, students, and preservationists. Regional Chapters promote the goals and mission of the organization through advocacy, education, and outreach. We aim to encourage a sense of regional and national pride for the rich legacy of the Modern Movement within the United State.


The Hawaii chapter of Docomomo US is comprised of members of key local architectural, design, preservation and museum professionals from the private and public sectors. The Hawaii chapter aims to promote public education on Modernism in the islands by cataloguing, preserving, restoring and renovating Hawaii's unique modern architecture and public art; identifying aspects of the modern movement that are applicable to Hawaii's environment and culture; conducting an oral history project among senior Hawaii architects and developers of our modern environments; and building a model Docomomo chapter that also has a lot of fun.
