Tour Day is devoted to the appreciation of modern architecture in the United States. Tours and events focus on architecture & design of the Modern Movement, and are hosted by Docomomo US chapters, partners, and leading voices in preservation.
Our Tour Day 2020 event will start at Bowlero Lanes & Lounge in Royal Oak, which has been authentically renovated to capture the look and feel of the 1970s, when the lounge was added to the building.
We'll then move to Bloomfield Hills and the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Smith House. After a brief examination of some of Michigan’s architectural icons from the 1970s, Cranbrook Center for Collections and Research curator Kevin Adkisson will provide a behind-the-scenes tour of the interiors of the Smith House.
Docomomo US/Michiganis a non-profit organization dedicated to the the preservation of modern architecture, landscape, and design. The Michigan chapter was founded in 2014 to continue the work of the Michigan State Historic Preservation Office’s “Michigan Modern” initiative to document and bring international attention to Michigan’s Modernist design legacy and its importance to American history. Docomomo US/Michigan promotes this through documentation, education, and advocacy.
