Modern technology meets mid-century modern design in this session presented by Darren Bradley, the face behind the well-followed @modarchitecture Instagram moniker.

About the Talk

Why does architecture look so different photographed now than when it was first constructed? What are some techniques to best capture iconic mid-century modern design today? In this virtual keynote presentation, Bradley will discuss the juxtaposition of mid-century modern photography then and now, sharing his perspective and approach alongside examples of his work.

Net proceeds from all Denver Modernism Week 2020 presentations will benefit the newly formed Colorado chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects, NOMA 5280.
