Twentieth century architecture and design needs your support

Join the Society or donate today to ensure the best twentieth century buildings survive.

Membership subscriptions, additional donations and legacies fund our vital research, advocacy and campaigning work. Your support is crucial. With Members’ and Donors’ support, important buildings like the recently-listed Preston Bus Station and pioneering developments like the Milton Keynes shopping centre  have secured listing protection (both at Grade II), and the Art Deco masterpiece that is the Midland Hotel (Grade II*) has been saved.
