Charlotte is beginning to become engaged in preserving Mid-Century Modern Buildings in the city, with the hope of avoiding the mistakes that have been made in past generations in terms of preserving local architecture. Today we’ll learn exactly what qualifies as a Mid-Century Modern (MCM) structure, what makes it historic, some examples of these buildings here in the Queen City, and we’ll meet a leading expert on preserving modern architecture to talk about the significance of these types of buildings.

Guests
Dr. Theodore Prudon
– Architect and Professor, Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation
Diane Althouse – Executive Director, Historic Charlotte
Ken Lamba – Dean, College of Arts + Architecture at UNC Charlotte
