From the Web site: "The architectural heritage of the Modern Movement in architecture is today more at risk than that of any other period, due to its age, its often innovative technology, the functions it was designed to perform, and the present cultural climate. There is a need for an organization, grouping those with a special interest and admiration for this body of work, to press for the documentation and the conservation of the best examples, as well as to promote a greater understanding of the ideas behind it. Such an organization should reflect the international character of the Movement. DOCOMOMO was founded in 1988, to fulfil these roles."
