docomomo International launched a new project: theádocomomo virtual exhibition(MoMove). The website -exhibition.docomomo.com - offers a selection of 2000 buildings and sites of the Modern Movement, curated by architects, historians and other professionals. This is a unique database for its geographic reach and number of works. The exhibition launching took place at Tecnico - University of Lisbon, during the PhD International Week with the presence of Ana Tostoes,ádocomomo International Chair, Andrea Canziani, Antonio Bandeirinha, Horacio Torrent, Miles Glendinning and Timo Tuomi.
Theádocomomo virtual exhibition is always in constant transformation, counting onádocomomo members around the world. In order to increase public awareness to the importance of this recent and devalued heritage, this virtual exhibition is also a tool to promote its study, interpretation and protection.
Based on a world map, the user can search any building or architect, discover essential data, filter information by keywords, find image galleries and videos. The buildings can be shared on major social networks or commented directly. The MoMove also functions as a mobile app (web) making it easy to use while traveling and visiting a proposed tour within a close area or topic of interest.
