Docomomo US has the pleasure to announce eleven selected winners of the 2015 Modernism in America Award program. These exceptional projects are emblematic of the work going on all over the country and represent buildings and building typologies of postwar society in the United States.

The projects recognized for the Modernism in America Awards (#ModernismAwards) highlight the importance of such modern typologies as transportation centers, sports arenas, banks, schools, libraries and landscapes. While often at the center of intense preservation efforts, they deserve and can be preserved in a meaningful and productive way that enhances their presence and value in their respective communities.
