Denver Modernism Week, LLC
Wander back in time along this well-preserved, mile-long stretch of Littleton Boulevard, examining commercial expressions of mid-century architecture—a diverse collection of Brutalist, Commercial Modern, Expressionist, Fantasy Modern Formalist, Late Modern, International, and Usonian styles.
Littleton Boulevard is one of the most unique streets in Colorado. Take in the progression of architecture from the 1800s to the advent of buildings catered to the automobile on this virtual walking tour, offering attendees a primer and history for a future onsite visit while being introduced to some of Colorado’s most prominent architects who contributed to this region, including Eugene Sternberg, Joseph and Mary Louise Marlow, Earl Chester Morris, Temple Buell, Richard Crowther, and Victor Hornbein.
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.
This is a guided VIRTUAL tour, which will be held on a webinar platform over the internet, in order to encourage social distancing. This virtual platform offers an opportunity to bring this tour to modernism fans across the country, and allows for a bigger crowd than the guide could typically handle in-person! There will be an opportunity to ask questions in a Q&A session after the tour is complete.
You will receive an email with a link for joining the tour 24-36 hours before it is scheduled to begin. We encourage you to come online for the tour 10-15 minutes in advance of the scheduled start time to ensure that your device and internet connection are working properly, and so that we can verify your ticket before joining the tour.
