Last week, representatives of the ten awardees, sponsors, colleagues, and friends traveled from near and far (as far away as Hawaii!) to celebrate the 2019 Modernism Awards. 

It was an inspiring evening. Hearing from the individuals who worked on each project, the challenges they faced (and some, such as Terrace Plaza, still face), and how they overcame them to reach the successful results we see today reminded us of why we are doing this work. 

We also recognized this year's longstanding members - those who have been Docomomo US members for 10 years or more. 

Our lead sponsor Design Within Reach provided a wonderful backdrop for the event.
