The Lost (and Found) Architectural Heritage of St. Louis

Thursday, May 21, 2015 @ 7:00 PM-8:30 PM


Missouri History Museum Lee Auditorium, 5700 Lindell Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63112

Free and Open to All!

Featured Speaker: Michael R. Allen, Director and Architectural Historian, Preservation Research Office; Coordinator and Lecturer, American Culture Studies Program, Washington University – St. Louis University College

When the forces of economic and civic power give rise to great architecture, we rejoice. When the same forces, under different circumstance, destroy great buildings, we lament. Architectural historian Michael R. Allen presents stories from the city’s lost architectural history, as well as buildings that were replaced with equal or greater works of architecture, and how public memory can keep any building alive eternally.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition, A Walk in 1875 St. Louis, on display at the Missouri History Museum, May 30, 2015 – February 14, 2016.
