Keeping it Modern, 2019

Since founding the ‘Keeping it Modern‘ program five years ago, The Getty Foundation has supported conservation programs of some of the most important buildings of the 20th century. This week, it announced the list of ten architecture masterpieces which will receive grants for research and planning of conservation this year. The Foundation has established a library which makes all the reports under the grants available online. Here are seven of the ten buildings on the list this year.
