NewHavenModern.org Wins!

We are pleased to announce that The New Haven Preservation Trust’s website devoted to our survey of Modernist New Haven buildings – NewHavenModern.org has been recognized with an Award of Excellence by Docomomo-US!

In selecting the project, the jury noted the “very considerable amount of thoughtful work that went into the handsome design, organization and public accessibility of the website.” Jurist Michael Mills stated, “The New Haven survey is an important effort in a city known for its collection of great modern architecture. The community engagement component of the project was very effective and is a model for other efforts of this kind.”

Earlier in April, NewHavenModern.org was recognized with an Award of Merit by The Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation. We are honored to be recognized for this work by our peers and supporters.

The website was designed and built by BlenderBox, and uses both materials collected during the Trust’s multi-phase, multi-year study and new items curated by the current website team. It was made possible by the generous support of the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (Culture and Tourism Division), Pelli Clarke Pelli, and friends of the Trust.
