Title

Explore New Orleans mid-century modern architecture at upcoming events

May 04, 2017

By Susan Langenhennig, NOLA.com

The Preservation Resource Center, the New Orleans Architecture Foundation and Docomomo US/Louisiana are teaming up to host events exploring the sharp angles, flat roofs, soaring glass walls and other hallmarks of mid-century modern architecture in New Orleans. The series kicks off May 25 with a reception at the home of architect Albert Ledner, who pioneered regional modernist design in New Orleans. Tickets are $35 at prcno.org.

Then, on June 8, Tulane University architecture professor John P. Klingman will present an overview of the Crescent City's own mid-century modern style. The talk will be held from 6-7 p.m., Mid City Library, 4140 Canal St.

On July 6, architects Lee Ledbetter, Paula Peer, Albert Ledner and archivist Francine J. Stock will participate in a panel discussion led by architect Wayne Troyer. The group will discuss mid-mod design, history and building use. The event will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. at the New Orleans Main Library, 219 Loyola Ave.
