Sacramento celebrates Mid-Century Modern architecture study
Sacramento’s innovative study of historic mid-century modern architecture is in the news. Sactown Magazine’s “five retro-cool gems” highlight the collaboration between the City of Sacramento, Sacramento Modern and a team of architectural historians.
Mead & Hunt assisted in this collaborative effort by helping to create Mid-Century Modern Survey and Context Statement and Survey Results.
The city’s Preservation office was the main project sponsor andshares a wealth of information about this survey and context study. Sacramento Modern provided key support to the city and the team of architectural historians. Sacramento Modern is a non-profit association dedicated to preserving and protecting modern art, architecture and design in the Sacramento region and has been sponsoring further work. We are currently working with Sacramento Modern to complete a National Register nomination for the Sacramento Zoo entryway buildings. These buildings were identified as a outstanding example of modernism as part of the study.
