World Monuments Fund/Knoll Modernism Prize

Established in 2008, the World Monuments Fund/Knoll Modernism Prize is awarded biennially for an innovative architectural or design solution that has preserved or enhanced a modern landmark or group of landmarks.

The first of its kind, the award acknowledges the growing threats—neglect, deterioration, or even demolition—now facing significant works of modernism, and recognizes the architects and designers who help ensure their rejuvenation and long-term survival. Its purpose is to raise public awareness of the influential role modernism plays in our architectural heritage, and recognize modern buildings as sustainable structures with viable futures.

Nominations for the 2014 World Monuments Fund/Knoll Modernism Prize are being accepted through June 30, 2014. For details about the prize, see the Call for Nominations or email modernism2014@wmf.org
