America’s mid-century Modernist houses are brilliant, livable works of art, yet they are being bulldozed in record numbers – largely because buyers, sellers, realtors, and cities are unaware of their importance – or how to preserve, repair, and protect them. 

USModernist® is the definitive online resource for Modernist residential architecture, focusing on the most prominent Modernist architects and houses across America. The detailed content is unrivaled -- causing visitors to return again & again. We punch way above our weight with passionate dedicated volunteers and a small part-time staff, so attracting members, donors, and sponsors is critical.
