Why Modern Architecture Doesn’t Matter
Wednesday, March 4, 2020
5:30 p.m. — Reception with Pizza and Cash Bar
6:00 p.m. — Presentation by Mike Stallmeyer and Elizabeth Holt
The 1948 Art Moderne former bank building at 80 Elm Street is currently being demolished. Streamlined and stylish, the polished-granite bank façade made a distinctive contribution to downtown New Haven and was a noteworthy legacy from the mid-century City.
To preservationists the building seemed an ideal candidate for adaptive reuse. How can we better explain and protect these buildings? How can we ensure historical preservation embraces the Modern era?
Join us for a lecture on Modern architecture and learn what preservation professionals are doing on behalf of these often-misunderstood buildings.
Admission for Talk and Reception:
$15 at the door
$10 in advance by Friday, February 28,
