SPONSOR THE ARCHITECTURE YOU LOVE

Through partnering with NCMH and USModernist, you will reach design-oriented customers who love our mission to document, preserve, and promote Modernist houses. We are your best connection to people who seek out well-designed products and creative services.  Our readers and followers tend to be influential, artistic, intelligent, highly educated, affluent and well-travelled. Many are in the market to buy, rent, build or renovate using Modernist-oriented sources and professionals.

 By associating your company, idea, or organization with us you'll give back to the greater design community. We are recognized with 12 local, state, and national awards for leadership in historic preservation.

This detailed content on Modernist design is unrivaled -- causing visitors to return again & again.  NCMH has led more Modernist tours than any other organization in North Carolina, with over 15,000 people attending our wildly popular events since 2008.

USModernist Architecture Magazine Library

All across America, architecture magazines from the 20th century are rotting in basements, if they haven't already been trashed. These visually brilliant publications chronicled the best of Modernist architecture along with the talented, progressive architects of that era. Mid-century Modernist architects and original Modernist homeowners are rapidly passing away. Their houses are largely forgotten and in some cases needlessly destroyed. Today's architects, realtors, and buyers don't have an easy way to research these houses through prior press coverage.

Access to historical information has never been more critical for preservation. The US Modernist Library is collecting every copy of every major 20th century architecture publication.  That's 6,000 issues, or 1.7 million pages.  All free, searchable, printable, and downloadable!  To underwrite the extensive research, acquisition, and support this requires, research sponsorships are available for $3,000 per year. Your name and link will be on the Library site.
