Modernism At Risk: Modern Solutions For Saving Modern Landmarks

March 1, 2010
through May 1, 2010

Organized by the World Monuments Fund and sponsored by Knoll, “Modernism at Risk” will explore the critical role designers and architects play in saving endangered Modern buildings, demonstrating that these buildings can be economically and functionally viable and continue to serve as places to live, work, learn, gather and worship. This role becomes increasingly important as the building materials and systems of many structures from the early period of Modernism through the postwar boom reach the end of their physical life span. The featured case studies, representing both triumphs and defeats in ongoing efforts to preserve Modern architecture, include works by Marcel Breuer, Paul Rudolph, the Bauhaus, Warren Platner, and Edward Durell Stone, with photographs by Andrew Moore.
