“World Monuments Fund (WMF) invites nominations
for the 2012 World Monuments Fund/Knoll
Modernism Prize, which will be awarded this fall to a
design professional or firm in recognition of innovative
design solutions that preserved or saved a modern
landmark at risk. The biennial prize was established to
raise public awareness of the contribution modernism
makes to contemporary life, the important place
modernism holds in the architectural record, and the
influential role that architects and designers play in
preserving modern heritage.
Projects that enhanced a site’s architectural, functional,
economic, and environmental sustainability while also
benefiting the community are encouraged. Nominated
projects must have been completed in the last five years.”
The deadline for nominations is July 31, 2012.
