Join us for a lively conversation about the term “modern.” What makes a building modern? Which modernist structures should be saved? What’s the difference between modern, contemporary, or just plain new? After a Modernism 101 talk, we’ll have a conversation with Adrian Kinney, specialist in midcentury modern real estate, and Brad Evans, who runs the Facebook page, Denver Fugly. Many thanks to our event sponsor, Sopra Communities, and our partner the Denver Architecture Foundation.

Learning Objectives:

1. the basic design concepts of Mid Century Modern style architecture

2. the merits and challenges with preserving this style of architecture


3. that despite challenges that are creative ways to make these structures continue to meet the needs of individual home owners and institutions
