2021 World Monuments Fund/Knoll Prize Ceremony

Join us on Tuesday, December 14 to celebrate the 2021 World Monuments Fund/Knoll Modernism Prize laureate!


The World Monuments Fund/Knoll Modernism Prize honors contemporary architects and preservationists whose work ensures sustainable futures for at-risk modern heritage. This year, we are honored to present the 2021 World Monuments Fund/Knoll Modernism Prize to John Puttick Associates for their thoughtful and detailed conservation on the Preston Bus Station. The brutalist bus station, located in Preston, United Kingdom, was designed in 1968 and is a civic monument of central importance that serves as a mass transportation hub. You can read more about the Preston Bus Station and John Puttick Associates here.

The award ceremony will take place in person and virtually on December 14. If you would like to attend in-person, please email events@wmf.org.
