St. Louis Modern Movement Survey

St. Louis, Missouri
Completed 2013
Size: City-Wide Survey of 200 non-residential properties

PMA collaborated with the St. Louis Cultural Resource Office and Missouri SHPO to conduct a multi-tiered thematic survey of Modern Movement non‐residential architecture built between circa 1945 and 1975 in the City of St. Louis city limits. Five project objectives were established and successfully completed:

• Reconnaissance Level historic resources Survey (RLS) for 200 selected non-residential properties constructed between 1945-1975.
• A broader understanding of the historic themes and resources associated with
the Modern Movement in St. Louis by writing three historic context statements in conjunction with the survey.
• An expanded property list of approximately forty (40) properties and present it to
the public for input (informational handouts provided pictured above).
• An Intensive Level Survey (ILS) of twenty-five (25) properties.
• A survey report that provides the City of St. Louis with baseline historic resource data for future preservation planning and land use planning. The results of the project will contribute to the body of knowledge regarding modern resources in St. Louis.
