With Tommy Kleckner, Director of the Indiana Landmarks Western Regional Office Cost: Free If houses reflect the times in which they were designed, midcentury modern is the architecture of ideas, created by those who believed the forward-looking style could be a vehicle for social change to create a better society. Characterized by fl at planes, large glass windows and open space, these homes -built from 1945 to the 1980s -featured simplicity and an integration with nature, encouraging residents to explore the world in new ways. Tommy will talk about Mid-Century Modern Home architecture and the shift we saw happen from high style homes to neighborhoods. He will also give a sneak peek at what houses will be on the tour of Mid-Century Modern Homes on June 3 see page 21.
