About the Register

Around the world, each DOCOMOMO working party is compiling a register of buildings, sites and neighbourhoods for its geographic area.  The DOCOMOMO registers, including the fiche and research materials on each item, are held in the archive collection of the Netherlands Architectural Institute in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. 

The DOCOMOMO registration criteria cover a place’s technical, social, historical and aesthetic/cultural significance and value and its canonical status. Canonical status refers to whether a building is known and has had an impact at the local, national or international level.

DOCOMOMO New Zealand is building up its own register of buildings, sites and neighbourhoods.  If you would like to research and write a fiche, please feel free to make contact with our Registers Coordinator.
