Modernism Week

Saturday, October 7 2017 to Sunday, October 15 2017

Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation

Tucson Modernism Week 2017, presented by the Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation will take place Saturday October 7th through Sunday October 15th. The celebration will feature a series of programs, film, lectures and events highlighting Tucson’s Mid-century Modern design and architecture throughout the city, along with the very popular vintage trailer show. Tucson’s Modernism captured the exuberance of the post WWII era, and is defined by clean, simple lines and a casual informality. In the Southern Arizona desert the movement has come to be defined as Sonoran Modern with the use of regional materials, adaptation to the desert climate and an emphasis on indoor/outdoor living.  2017 will feature work by legendary designers and modernists including Judith Chafee, Barbara Mettler and Cele Peterson.
