We serve to illustrate and interpret Cincinnati's Mid-20th-Century Modern architecture. It is intended for interested students, scholars, architects, preservationists, historians, and laypeople, in Cincinnati and around the United States. Cincinnati has a surprisingly rich history of Modernist architecture and design, but it is a legacy that seems little known either regionally or nationally. If this website helps to raise awareness of Cincinnati Modernism and to encourage its preservation and sensitive treatment it will have succeeded in its primary goal.  


This effort has been funded and assisted by the Cincinnati Form Follows Function (cf3) and the University of Cincinnati Office of Research.
