We’ve Launched. Thanks for waiting.

August 11, 2010

You are browsing DOCOMOMO New York/Tri-State’s first website.
Sometimes, you must throw caution to the wind. Or at least the notion of “done.” Websites flout it. But what we have done, we’re excited about. It has good structure—the functionality to serve up timely, contextual information—and an initial load of content—some standard, some curious.

There are many people to thank. First and foremost Brent Harris, whose unsolicited, but wonderfully fortuitous gift made the project possible. Brent has long championed the preservation and restoration of Modern architecture on both coasts. MAKEPRETEND, a New York based creative bureau, provided the design and programming—and patience—that got us to this launch. Board members John Arbuckle and Kathleen Randall spearheaded the project planning with plenty of valuable input from fellow board members. Kathleen coordinated the build out and content posting with tireless assistance from Kate Tuohy. Many wrote, edited and reviewed. Details on the credits page.

Not-to-miss:
• One stop browsing for programs and tours related to Modern
architecture in the tri-state area.
Events Calendar
(we’ll be filling up Fall soon)

• Profiles and advocacy status updates for some of the most interesting Modern movement buildings around. Maps, links and images too.
Advocacy
(a big work in progress.)

Enjoy the site while we expand and improve it.
