International Specialist Committee on Register (ISC/R)

The Docomomo ISC/Register 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. The MoMo Register is a work in progress, compiled by the chapters under the umbrella of the ISC/R.

Every year, chapters submit a new series of fiches, and since 2003 this annual selection has been related to a specific theme (Sports, Postwar Modernism, The Modern House, ‘Other’ Modernisms, Education, The Machine).

Docomomo ISC/Registers also collaborates in the development of the International Union of Architects’ 20th century architectural heritage repository project. The first results can already be consulted at:
