Adopt an Icon at Risk - PLEASE DONATE
Thanks to your donations, we can add new listings to our Icons at Risk Watch List. Worldwide, we have researched 42 houses by now and we need your help to also publish the houses that are on our radar and need more research. The Iconic Houses Foundation, like many  non-profits, is in a precarious position due to Covid. Please donate to help us continue putting these houses in the spotlight to (hopefully) help save them from demolition.
