2017 Summer Speaker Series

The Old Riverside Foundation is pleased to offer a four-part series of educational -– and entertaining -– talks, “The Postwar Boom: Architecture Arrives.” The talks are FREE with the first taking place on Saturday June 24th.

Ted Wells, a noted architect and architectural historian, is our guest speaker. Ted will put the postwar movements in architecture into context with the postwar political, economic, artistic and social atmosphere of the late 40s, 50s, 60s, and 70s. Each of the venues chosen for the talks is relevant to the series and will help to illuminate the development of architecture and culture that is now considered historic -– and enlightening. Mark your calendars for the four lectures!
