Docomomo. Say that ten times. It’s a real thing, I swear. Docomomo is the international committee for the documentation and conservation of buildings, sites and neighborhoods of the modern movement.

If modern architecture makes you giddy, get to know Docomomo. If modern style in Utah does the same (and we know it does if you’re reading this), get to know Salt Lake Modern.

This week, Salt Lake Modern—an affinity group for the Utah Heritage Foundation—is joining Docomomo and other preservations groups worldwide for their international Tour Day.

Ever heard of Cliff May? The Father of the Modern Ranch House? The builder who created the suburban post-war dream house, many of them featured on the cover of Sunset magazine? Oh yea, that guy.

Lucky for Utah, Cliff May left his legacy on the Beehive State in the form of a dozen homes built in Salt Lake City’s Olympus Cove neighborhood. Your chance to see these Maywood Hills homes starts this weekend: October 6 and 8th. If you can’t make it this weekend, download the Utah Heritage Walks mobile app and go anytime.
