Michigan Modern
State Historic Preservation Officer Brian Conway will be at the Bentley Historical Library in Ann Arbor on October 9, 7:00 p.m., to discuss the pivotal role Michigan played in the development of Modernism. In June 2010, a group of homeowners, architects and enthusiasts joined together in Ann Arbor with the goal to raise the awareness of and appreciation for mid-century architecture and design. Through its activities, a2modern celebrates the accomplishments of the architects, designers, builders and homeowners in Ann Arbor. Ann Arbor is home to the University of Michigan and the U-M provided access to the advancements in engineering and building materials, as well as the forward-thinking architects and educators that brought modernism to the area. These mid-century architects with domestic modern works in the area include George B. Brigham, Robert Metcalf, David W. Osler, James Livingston, Alden B. Dow, Walter Sanders, William Muschenheim, Edward Olencki, Joseph Albano, Joe T.A. Lee, Robert Pond, Herb Johe and Tivadar Balogh.
