About the project

Art and architecture history is only accessible if there is an organized, documented catalogue of what has been created in the past. Many of the sites and pieces created in the last 100 years have not been researched or documented. DOCOMOMO International was created in 1988 for the Documentation and Conservation of Buildings, Sites and Neighborhoods of the Modern Movement”.

An ambitious project to take on, DOCOMOMO has been broken down into more manageable regional categories. The New York Tri-State branch handles New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Each state is responsible for documenting its own sites and regions of the state can be isolated further. 

The research and documentation that will be procured here is mainly for the Princeton area. Princeton near the border of  three counties: Mercer, Somerset and Middlesex. Although there will be a focus on Princeton and Princeton Borough, there will be ventures out into other towns and counties of central New Jersey.
