Virtual Community Conversation: New Harmony Atheneum
Jul 30, 2020 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm CDT
The latest installment in USI’s Virtual Community Conversation Series — “The New Harmony Atheneum: Welcome Center, Museum and Architectural Icon”
Standing proudly on the banks of the Wabash River in Southern Indiana, is something most unexpected… an icon of modern architecture. Designed by famed architect Richard Meier and executed in all white to reflect the colors of its surroundings, the Atheneum stands as a welcome center for New Harmony, a museum and a testament to groundbreaking and thoughtful design. Now in its 40th year, the Atheneum remains true to its intended impact and purpose and continues to inspire around the globe. Join us for an exciting conversation with architects and educators on the history, driving philosophy and impact of the New Harmony Atheneum.
Jack Faber, Principal Architect and Designer, Hafer
