Modern Richmond // Transcend Style

Architect and furniture designer Marcel Breuer once remarked that, “modernism is not a style, it is an attitude.”

A symbiotic embrace of historical and cultural influences, today’s modern buildings embody that very notion. The modernist movement is, at its core, contrasts and counterpoints; introspection and experiment; viability and sustainability.

It is clean but never a clean slate. It is simple but not superficial. It is an attitude but not a style. 

Our Mission

Modern Richmond is the understanding and appreciation of modernism in all its forms. We promote and explore Richmond's expressions of modern aesthetics in a way that both engages and delivers modernism to a larger audience in our region and beyond.
