HRPS Program - ZoAnn Campana presents "Reno MoMo"

04/28/2019 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm


In the middle of the 20th century, Reno was experimenting with the architecture of the Modern Movement (MoMo). High-profile architects from around the country came to Reno to design some of our best known buildings during this time. Raymond Hellman arrived in town to become one of our most prolific and masterful modernist architects. Even preeminent local architect Frederic DeLongchamps, continually evolving throughout his career, contributed designs in the modernist mode. Come learn about the various hallmarks of the MoMo and how they manifested in our local built environment. ZoAnn Campana is a local Historic Preservation Consultant who serves as Vice President of the HRPS Board of Directors and is the architectural historian on the City of Reno's Historical Resources Commission.
