Join speaker John Gallagher, staff writer and architecture critic for The Detroit Free Press as he discusses Detroit Architecture between the World Wars. The program will be held Wednesday, Feb. 22 from 6-9 p.m. at the Scarab Club, 217 Farnsworth, Detroit.
Detroit architecture in the 1920s and 1930s saw a transition away from the historicism of pre-war years toward a mix of romantic Mediterranean revival, Art Deco, and mid-century modernism. John Gallagher outlines this two-decade period in Detroit architecture with images of several buildings including both familiar landmarks and not-so-familiar gems.
