DETROIT (AP) - A conference focusing on modern architecture is coming to Detroit - a city recognized as a hub for such design.

The theme of the fourth annual Docomomo US National Symposium set for next month is “Beyond Modernism? Moving the Recent Past Forward.” The event will feature lectures and panels with architectural historians, architects and educators, as well as an audience interactive debate.

Lectures will be held at the Minoru Yamasaki-designed McGregor Memorial Conference Center and DeRoy Auditorium Complex at Wayne State University. Registrants can take guided tours of several modernist landmarks, including Detroit’s Lafayette Park and the General Motors Tech Center in Warren.

The symposium runs from June 9-12.

Docomomo draws its name from the “documentation and conservation of buildings, sites and neighborhoods of the Modern Movement.”
