AIA CT – Why Modern Architecture Doesn’t Matter

March 4 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

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 understand and protect these buildings? How can we ensure the tradition of historic preservation extends into 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.

Mike Stallmeyer is a project manager at PRESERV, Inc. in New York City and specializes in facade restoration of historic buildings from townhouses to commercial properties. Elizabeth Holt is the Director of Preservation Services at New Haven Preservation Trust and works to preserve New Haven’s irreplaceable buildings, from its earliest architecture through the 20th century.

5:30 p.m.
Reception with Pizza and Cash Bar

6:00 p.m.
Presentation by Mike Stallmeyer and Elizabeth Holt

Admission for Talk and Reception is $10 in advance (non-refundable) and $15 at the door.
