Our mission

The Friends of Modern Architecture/Lincoln (FoMA) works to promote greater recognition of Modernism’s contribution to the architectural, historical, and cultural history of Lincoln, the region, and the nation; and to preserve examples of the Town’s exceptional Modern legacy to remind future generations of Modernism’s design and social ideals.

FoMA initiates: 

  • educational programs including symposia, films, lectures, and tours to raise awareness of Modernism’s design and social ideals
  • architectural and/or historic information and advice to individual owners and neighborhoods containing Modern houses
  • collaborative ventures with various Lincoln organizations, Town boards, and citizens to support policies and initiatives for preservation
