Mid-Century Modern Midland has a New Mobile App
Our friends at Mid-Century Modern Midland (midcenturymidland.org) have created a cool new mobile app. To download the app, go to Apple App Store or Google Play Store and type Mid-Century Modern Midland.
“Midland, Michigan has over 400 Mid-Twentieth Century Modern homes, churches, commercial, educational and civic structures woven throughout the city. Due to the quality and concentration of these structures, Midland is recognized as one the most architecturally significant communities in the United States.
Beginning in the early 1930s, Alden B. Dow, F.A.I.A. introduced modern architecture to Midland, Michigan. As part of the
Mid-Twentieth Century Modern movement, Mr. Dow challenged thinking and helped to redefine how we design and use buildings. His
innovative, functional and dynamic work inspired designers and architects like Francis Warner, Jackson Hallett, Glenn Beach, Robert
Schwartz, and others, to create modern structures that are integrated into the Midland community.
Mid-Century Modern Midland, committed to documenting, preserving and celebrating Midland’s architectural heritage, has created a mobile app to share this unprecedented collection of Mid-Century Modern structures.
The app allows you to search any Mid-Century Modern structure in the City of Midland and gives you a photo and documented information about it. It introduces you to the architects and designers who contributed to Midland’s architectural landscape.
It offers a number of predetermined tours, but also allows you to create your own customized tour. The app will then route you to the structures you selected.”
