New online resource for Modern architecture in Queens

February 22, 2015

It was a real treat to receive the announcement in our inbox that Queens Modern has launched. Started by our good friend Frampton Tolbert of Mid-Century Mundane blog fame, Queens Modern explores Modern and mid-century architecture in the borough of Queens. The project uses the Queens Chamber of Commerce’s Building Awards program, active from 1948 to 1970, as a starting point and a frame of reference. The Chamber’s program honored nearly 400 buildings of all types across the borough, of which 150 are now featured on the Queens Modern site, with the rest to follow soon.
