SOHO Forms Modernism Committee

By Bill Lawrence

Following the success of SOHO's first San Diego Modernism Weekend and the critical need to preserve San Diego's Modern Heritage, the Board of Directors has approved formation of SOHO's San Diego Modernism Committee. Similar to Los Angeles Conservancy's MODCOM, the San Diego Modernism Committee will focus on 20th century architecture and related fields that reflect the heritage of San Diego Modernism and popular culture. The Modernism Committee will plan tours, exhibitions and lectures; will research and nominate buildings for landmark designation; and serve as an advocate for Modern architecture and design.

Among the Committee's first order of business will be the planning of SOHO's 2004 Modernism Weekend, scheduled for September 16, 17th and 18th.

San Diego's rich 20th century architectural and cultural heritage is threatened daily by the pressures of development and insensitive remodeling. We need your help to educate our community and preserve this heritage for our future. SOHO's Modernism Committee will meet the Third Wednesday of each month. The inaugural meeting will be held at 6pm, Wednesday February 18th, in the kitchen at the Derby Pendleton at the Whaley House Museum complex. If you are interested, please contact the Modernism Committee at modern@sohosandiego.org or Bill Lawrence, Committee Chair at (858) 495-7594.
