Mid-Century Modern and the Recent Past: Documentation and Presentation

Mid-Century Modern and the Recent Past: Documentation and Presentation

Saturday June 19, 2010 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Tickets: $20 - Includes Lunch

Buildings and residential enclaves from the mid-twentieth century are reaching and surpassing the 50 year mark, making them widely eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. Yet preservationists still face a number of challenges, even when advocating for buildings that can now be recognized as officially "historic." Development pressures, the economy, and aging infrastructure – along with widespread misconceptions about the role of modern architecture in the U.S. – put these resources at risk in the Northwest and throughout the country.
