USModernist Sponsorships


 Sponsors make the difference in supporting our mission to document, preserve, and promote Modernist residential design. For that support, we offer attractive and meaningful options at all levels of investment.

USModernist and NCModernist are two historic preservation web sites created by Modernist Archive, Inc., a 501C3 nonprofit educational archive founded in 2009. We have been recognized with 12 local, state, and national awards for leadership in historic preservation.

NCModernist focuses on architects and houses in North Carolina. USModernist focuses on the most prominent architects and houses across America. Combined, they are the definitive online resources for Modernist residential architecture, representing over 800 gigabytes of content, including 26,000 photos, 7,000 amazing Modernist houses, and 280 architect and designer biographies. The detailed content is unrivaled -- causing visitors to return again & again.

Sponsors reach an enthusiasic, design-oriented audience who love Modernist design and tend to be influential, artistic, intelligent, highly educated, affluent and well-travelled. They seek out new products, changes in lifestyle, and creative services. Many are in the market to buy, rent, build or renovate using Modernist-knowledgeable sources and professionals.

Details of available sponsor opportunities are below. Contact Rebekah Laney,, for assistance, or instructions for proceeding are at the bottom of the page.
