Since its creation in 2004, Docomomo Chile has carried out an intense program of divulgation and valorization of modern heritage, documenting more than 2000 cases along the country. It has organized 5 National Seminars in Santiago (2005), Antofagasta (2007), Valparaiso (2009), Concepción (2012), Santiago (2014), Valdivia (2018) and virtual meetings in 2021 and 2022. Along with these, several smaller events have been held at a national and regional scale. Its national members are regular participants in international activities, such as Docomomo Conferences or seminars implemented by national working parties.
In addition, Docomomo Chile has held thematic seminars for the discussion of specific intervention or conservation cases, like the Centro Cultural Bicentenario at the Chilean embassy in Argentina, or the ECLAC (CEPAL) building in Santiago. In the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake, the organization set up a field team to assess the damage inflicted on relevant residential complexes.
In 2018, Docomomo Chile organized the International Meeting Modern Heritage and Best Practices: Sustainability, Conservation, Management, and Architectural Design. At the same time, it organized the Workshop Modern Heritage and Contemporary Architectural Design, focused on investigating intervention strategies and the role in which architectural design –in its contemporary capacity– can act as a complement to the preservation of modern heritage.
The workshop gathered students and teachers from different backgrounds: Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Universidad Nacional de Rosario-Argentina, Universidad San Sebastián, Universidad Austral, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, and the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.
