International docomomo Conference 2012, Espoo, Finland
How does good design affect our physical surroundings in all scales from coffee cup to plan? This eternal question seemed be as topical as ever during the 12th International docomomo Conference in Espoo, Finland this August. This was evidenced by the amount of abstracts offered to the conference, 356 in all. The International Scientific Committee of the conference achieved a minor miracle in laboring out a selection of 78 to be presented as papers during three intensive days from August 8 to 10. A number of abstracts were also offered the chance of a poster presentation, and delightfully many grabbed the chance to be noticed in this way.
