The Getty Foundation has selected 12 significant 20th century buildings to receive 2017 grants as part of its Keeping It Modern initiative, which aims to advance the understanding and preservation of modern architecture through a focus on conservation planning and research. Since its founding in 2014, the program has supported the preservation of 45 projects from around the globe.

This year $1.66 million in grants were awarded to recognizable projects including the Walter Gropius-designed Bauhaus Building in Dessau; the Melnikov House in Moscow (the first Russian project to receive a grant); and Frank Lloyd Wright’s only skyscraper, Price Tower. 

See all 12 grantees below.

All of projects will be evaluated based on the use of the grants to provide guidance for future projects.

“Now that Keeping It Modern is in its fourth year, with earlier projects already completed, we are starting to see a positive response from the field,” says Antoine Wilmering, senior program officer at the Getty Foundation. “There is a domino effect of research findings and planning methodologies developed for one context being applied to other sites, which is a valuable outcome.”
