Steve Wiser, Louisville Architect and Historian
Modern Houses of Louisville
Thursday, October 28
Speed Art Museum Auditorium
During the 1930s, a new style of residential architecture began to be built in Louisville that featured flat roofs, no ornamentation, and spacious interiors. This was a dramatic departure from the traditional homes constructed in the city.
Modern houses are now a combination of artistic shapes and spaces. These homes are usually in secluded locations. Architect and historian Steve Wiser has assembled them into a remarkable lecture entitled, “Modern Houses of Louisville.” Photos by Dan Madryga will also be shown. This lecture will be a visual delight.
Steve Wiser is a Louisville architect and historian. He has been president of both Louisville Historical League and American Institute of Architects chapter.
