Announcing the Winners of the 2022 Modernism in America Awards

Docomomo US is pleased to announce the twelve recipients of the 2022 Modernism in America Awards. These projects highlight the best in preservation practice by today’s architects, designers, preservation professionals and advocates. This year’s awards recognize preservation efforts ranging from the transformation of large-scale projects into beacons of sustainability to modest home revitalizations, many of which have been years, or even decades, in the making. The results are a testament to the dedication and foresight of those who recognize the value of preserving our modern heritage for everyone.

The 2022 winners are:

AWARD OF EXCELLENCE
Stockmayer House (Norwich, VT)
Peavey Plaza (Minneapolis, MN)
Hotel Marcel (New Haven, CT)
UMassBRUT (Amherst and Dartmouth, MA)
Pioneering Women in American Architecture (New York, NY)
Eugenia Woo (Seattle, WA)
 
CITATION OF MERIT
Clauss Haus II at Little Switzerland (Knoxville, TN)
Gagarin II (Litchfield, CT)
Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library (Washington, D.C.)
Oakland Monster (Oakland, CA)
Lucabe Coffee Co. (Columbus, IN)
SurveyLA Historic Context Statement 1919-1980 (Los Angeles, CA)

This year's Awards include several highly anticipated projects that reached completion, all that were aided by prior advocacy efforts. The jury took note of residential projects that practiced restraint and eschewed trendy design pitfalls in favor of original design intent. Inventory/survey projects exhibited an all-hands-on-deck approach to rallying large entities around better stewardship of their modern resources. The Advocacy Award winners exemplify women’s contributions to our built environment and amplify the women who are champions of our built heritage.

Speaking on the projects recognized and the impact of the Awards program, Docomomo US Board Member and Awards Committee Chair Meredith Arms Bzdak noted, “This year’s Modernism in America Awards honor a full range of truly incredible preservation efforts being undertaken across the country, introducing us to fascinating pieces of our modern heritage and highlighting innovative ways that we can use that heritage to educate, inform, and inspire.” Docomomo US Executive Director Liz Waytkus added, “this year’s award winners demonstrate that doing the ‘impossible’ is possible. These projects represent what we should all be looking for in preservation outcomes: holistic, sustainable and inclusive design that benefits us all.”

Docomomo US would like to thank the 2022 design and survey jury: Henry Moss, AIA (chair), Angel Ayón, AIA, LEED AP, NCARB, NOMA, Caroline Constant, Glenn LaRue Smith, FASLA, and Susan Macdonald, ICCROM, RIBA, PIA, for their leadership in the field, careful review, and guidance in selecting this year's recipients.

An additional thank you to Hannah Simonson, and Gary Wolf, FAIA, for guiding this year's program as members of the 2022 Awards Committee.

The 2022 Modernism in America Awards will be presented in-person on Thursday November 3, 2022, at the Design Within Reach Third Avenue Showroom in New York City.
