Atomic Age Architecture Symposium in Chapel Hill

Atomic Age Architiecture: A Symposium of Modernist Buildings, August 2, 2008 Saturday August 2, at the Chapel Hill Museum from 9am to 4pm there will be a very cool sounding discussion about Modern Architecture in Chapel Hill. Sponsored by The Preservation Society of Chapel Hill.

I have to say that new Preservation Society Director Ernest Dollar is sure making old stuff exciting. Even to this jaded hipster! (I am a bit of history nerd actually…)

Thanks for the heads up Sally! via GreeneSpace
