a2modern presentation: february 15, 2012

a2modern is pleased to announce its first event for 2012. Mark your calendars and join us for a presentation and discussion by Kingsbury Marzolf and Calvin Hoeft.

Designing and Building a House in Ann Arbor

A local architect and a builder lead the audience behind the scenes to share the complex process of taking the plans for a single family house and turning it into a reality through eight months of work. Kingsbury Marzolf, architect, designed his home on Granger Avenue in 1965 and put the plans out for bids in 1966. Calvin Hoeft, builder, won the bid, contracted to build the house, and completed it in the spring of 1967. Marzolf took color slides of the work as it progressed and assembled the presentation. This illustrated conversation between the two men will describe the details of the process, and the audience will be encouraged to raise questions.

When: Wednesday, February 15, 2012 at 7:00 p.m.
Where: Whiting room, Bentley Historical Library, 1150 Beal Ave., Ann Arbor, Michigan
