This unique architecture tour of notable and noteworthy Modern architecture buildings along Saint Charles Avenue will begin at 2 p.m. at AIA New Orleans Center for Design, on Lee Circle, and culminate with a reception at the residence of architect Marcel Wisznia – a House of Tomorrow (1936, Moise Goldstein, architect, Nathaniel Cortlandt Curtis, designer).

Visitors and locals alike appreciate the Gilded Age architecture along the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line. This bicycle tour narrated by Tulane School of Architecture professor John Klingman will introduce the very fine St. Charles modernist buildings that the guidebooks omit and many locals ignore. Featured architects include Charles Colbert; Curtis & Davis; Favrot & Reed; Moise Goldstein & Associates; August Perez; Skidmore, Owings & Merrill; Leonard Spangenberg; and Weiss, Dreyfous & Seiferth. Some of the tour’s highlights are included on the DOCOMOMO NOLA iPhone app.

Note – this is a ‘one-way’ tour, beginning at Lee Circle and ending in Uptown, by Audubon Park.
