ISCs

Docomomo has six International Specialist Committees comprised of specialists in modern architecture, theory, construction technology, landscape and interior design.

ISC/Registers
ISC/Technology
ISC/Urbanism+Landscape
ISC/Education+Theory
ISC/Interior Design
ISC/Publications

They work under the supervision of Docomomo International.

ISC/Registers

The Docomomo ISC/Registers was created to engage national/regional chapters in the documentation of modern buildings and sites. Its mission is the development of an inventory of modern architecture, including both outstanding individual buildings and ‘everyday’ examples.

ISC/Education & Training

The ISC/Education & Training has the mission of educating to protect “by prevention”. This means to preserve not by action-reaction to specific threats, but by creating a general awareness and appreciation of modern buildings in the younger generation, general public and the society at large. The workshops in the framework of the Docomomo International Conferences are increasingly successful and prove that young people like to be involved in assignments concerning modern heritage. The ISC on Education and Theory would like to provide these young people the possibility to excel in the Documentation and Conservation of modern heritage.

ISC/Interior Design

The ISC/Interior Design focus on Interior Design, an issue of major relevance for the Modern Movement and Modern Living. Interior Design gives us important spatial, ideological and aesthetic information necessary for a full awareness and experiencing of Modernity. The Modern Movement considered Interior Design as being in close relation with architecture and the other arts. This implied the demand for a new aesthetics in response to new technology and a need for a total work that embraces all the expressions into a unitary (and also utopian) environment for humanity. The Modern Interiors’ identity is characterized by a strong and coherent style which results from a unity between architecture, furniture, design, decorative arts, utilitarian objects, equipment, textiles and light.

ISC/Publications

In order to have more coordination between the ISC’s and other Docomomo bodies regarding publications, the Advisory Board unanimously agreed on the creation of a Docomomo International ISC/Publications, integrating all the ISC chairs and the Docomomo International Chair. This may concern their content and editing status (indexed) but also the use of funding and external resources and the contacts with publishing houses.
