Moderns that Matter

Moderns that Matter is an ongoing compilation of Gainesville’s most iconic and lesser known buildings and sites. Collectively, these places lend our city its distinct character and sense of place. Our goal is to ensure these buildings and sites are not lost, but are maintained and, when necessary, thoughtfully adapted for new uses and needs.
