Accidental Archivist with George Smart, US Modernist


George Smart, US Modernist

Description

George has informed, engaged, and entertained design-oriented audiences from California to New York – and every week reaches thousands more as host of the podcast US Modernist Radio, named by DWELL as the #2 architecture and design podcast. Audiences will learn very basic principles of modernist design, why it’s important and how easy it is to start a documentation and preservation effort in their communities – with nothing more than a car, a cell phone, and a laptop.

Hosted at the Fairfield County District Library on June 22 at 3 p.m.
