Now that we are fully ensconced in the 21st century, the preservation movement cannot afford to alienate emerging constituencies that are passionate about saving buildings and landscapes from the recent past, whether the rallying cry is for a suburban ranch house, a post office constructed of poured concrete, or a humble roadside motel aspiring to look like Mount Vernon. Contributors to this Forum journal on Modernism + the Recent Past discuss strategy, evaluation, and preservation of a diverse mix of American resources whose historical associations range from the Cold War to hip-hop culture to the internet age. We hope these articles will engage more people in these conversations and begin a series of focused dialogues centered on the development of preservation practice in the 21st century.
