World Monuments Fund/Knoll Modernism Prize

Prize: 10,000 USD, Knoll Barcelona chair, roundtrip airfare and accommodations to award event

Description: Forward-thinking. Experimental. Bold. Progressive. Innovative. Once recognized for their defining characteristics, significant modernist sites around the world are victims of physical deterioration of materials, perceived obsolescence, and public apathy. These threats repeatedly result in inappropriate alterations or demolition. With many modern buildings too young to qualify for landmark designation and protection, the need for preservation is urgent. In 2008, we launched the biennial World Monuments Fund/Knoll Modernism Prize to recognize the individuals and organizations that preserve our modern built heritage through innovative architectural or design solutions. At-risk modern buildings can and do remain sustainable structures with vital futures; visionary architects, designers, planners, and community leaders play a paramount role in ensuring those futures. The prize is a component of our Modernism at Risk initiative, which supports the preservation of modern architecture through advocacy and conservation projects. Both the prize and the Modernism at Risk initiative were launched with the support of founding sponsor Knoll.
