As part of its commitment to celebrating and preserving some of the world’s best examples of modernist architecture, the Getty Foundation’s Keeping It Modern initiative added 10 new grants to its already impressive roster. With the foundation’s support, new research, testing, analysis, and planning work can be put into making sure these buildings continue to inform and inspire architects and design enthusiasts for years to come.
The Keeping It Modern initiative now supports the conservation of 64 architecturally significant projects with the addition of these 10 buildings. That’s pretty impressive for an endeavor that is only six years old.
Read on to learn more about the projects, which can be found in locations as far-flung as Bulgaria’s Buzludzha Peak and as bustling as the Argentinian city of Córdoba.
