Western New York was founded on a rich tradition of architectural experimentation that not only transformed our region but influenced modern architectural sensibilities around the world. In 2019, Preservation Buffalo Niagara (PBN) its first annual week (known then as Modernism Week) dedicated to celebrating the modern architecture, design, and art of the Western New York region and in 2020 and in 2021 it returned as ModernWNY. This year, from September 12 to September 17, ModernWNY will strive to celebrate and highlight the evolution of modernism in the area via two self-guided tours, two in-person tours, and one virtual lecture.
