Protecting: James R. Thompson Center, 1985, Helmut Jahn

"Defender of the Postmodern People's Palace"

Chicago's James R Thompson Center isn't just a "gem" or a "jewel" or the work of a master starchitect, but where Chicago comes to exercise its 1st amendment rights and to explore concepts of open government within a patriotic postmodern building.

ABOUT Giving Tuesday 2019

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. 

Docomomo US celebrates Giving Tuesday through the "Doco Games," an epic tournament of modernism featuring Docomomo superfans who battle it out to support the modern places they love.
