Comments for Mid-Century Modern Survey Due Thursday
What are your favorite Mid-Century Modern buildings in St. Louis? If you missed the public meeting last night for the Mid-Century Modern architectural survey that the St. Louis Cultural Resources Office is currently conducting, you can still comment on the proposed list of buildings for further study, which will be narrowed to 25-30. To view and comment on the 40 properties under consideration, including the IBEW Hall pictured above, visit the CRO's Modern Architecture in St. Louis page. If there is an MCM gem that you don't see on the list but feel should be, include this in your comments. Note that MCM buildings that are already listed on the National Register are not included in this survey. Please email your comment forms by end of day Thursday to CRO Director Betsy Bradley: firstname.lastname@example.org
Vanishing STL was created to illustrate the continuing loss of irreplaceable architecture from landmark buildings to ordinary homes due to demolition, abandonment and neglect. Often I write about structures threatened with demolition to bring awareness of the situation and promote preservation as an alternative. All photos are by Paul Hohmann unless noted otherwise.
