“Preserving Modern Architecture in the Midwest” A Two-day Symposium at the Rauh House

On April 24th and 25th, Cincinnati Preservation Association (CPA) will celebrate the gift and the restoration of the Frederick and Harriet Rauh House in Woodlawn by hosting “Preserving Modern Architecture,” a two-day symposium at the house. In September 2011, CPA launched the restoration of the 1938 Rauh House with a festive celebration honoring Emily Rauh Pulitzer, donor of the house and funder of the work. A year later, the restoration of this pioneering International Style residence is complete.

Media inquiries may be directed to Executive Director Paul Muller at director@cincinnatipreservation.org first event of its kind in Cincinnati, “Preserving Modern Architecture” will address the challenges and opportunities of preserving the architecture of the recent past. The first day will focus on identifying the Modernist legacy, the forces that shaped it, the design objectives of pioneers, and the defining characteristics. The focus of Day Two will shift to conserving the legacy by reviewing current preservation work throughout the Midwest, challenges to saving modern architectural landmarks, and emerging opportunities for preservation.
