Modern Albuquerque is a New Mexico non-profit organization dedicated to the documentation, promotion, preservation, and education of the public about the presence of modernist architecture and art in the city of Albuquerque and State of New Mexico!


Modern Albuquerque

Founded in 2018 as a two-person operation, Modern Albuquerque was the first business in New Mexico to promote Albuquerque's mid-century modern architecture and recent history year-round through tours, events, and media. Modern Albuquerque reorganized as a non-profit corporation in January 2020, expanding its mission to encompass modernist architecture before and beyond the mid-century period, modernist art installations, and landscape design. As a non-profit, we've redirected our efforts towards research, documentation, preservation, and education.

Upcoming Projects

As we begin down the pathway towards 501c3 educational non-profit status, our team is working to add more architectural resources to the mid-century modern inventory, research for National Register nominations, and planning to resume in-person events!


Become a member. Volunteer. Share a photograph or address of a local modernist structure. Attend an event. There are many ways to aid our work!
