At Home with Mid-Century ModernSaturday May 15, 2021
10:00 AM until 11:00 AM
Lexington in the mid-20th century was in the middle of yet another revolution, this time not in war, but in design. Innovators in the fields of architecture, furniture and textile design called Lexington home as new, modern communities sprang forth to exemplify their new aesthetic.
Join us for three days of interactive lectures to learn more about how Lexington became home to nearly 300 Mid-Century Modern houses, how they were furnished, and how they are still being used and adapted today.

Adapting Mid-Century Architecture for the Modern Home
With Katie Flynn of Hisel Flynn Architects
Lexington is home to hundreds of Mid-Century Modern homes that are still being lived in today. Many of these homes have undergone restoration over the years to become more accessible to modern homeowners, while still maintaining the eclectic style that made them so popular when they were first built. For our final lecture, find out how these homes are staying relevant in this century, and how a home in the Turning Mill neighborhood, designed by Carl Koch of Tech Built fame, was recently renovated with both sustainability and preservation in mind.
All attendees will also receive an exclusive Mid-Century Modern informational guide with articles, design plans, photographs, and more!
Members: $10/each, $25/series. Nonmembers: $15/each, $40/series. Tickets available here.
