Even though Concord and the rest of the state can boast many buildings that date to the 18th century, a lecture in Concord this week will focus on a more recent period, when building designs “incorporated glass, steel and reinforced concrete into a new architectural style defined by clean lines, simple shapes and unornamented facades.”

A lecture and panel discussion on “Mid-20th Century Modern Architecture” will be held Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Concord Public Library. The talk is sponsored by the state Division of Historical Resources, the state Department of Employment Security and the City of Concord.

Preservation consultant Lisa Mausolf, who recently completed a survey of New Hampshire’s public buildings designed in mid-20th century modern style, will speak, and a panel of experts, including architects who practiced during the mid-20th century, will discuss their work and take questions.

The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call 271-3136 or send an email to shelly.angers@dcr.nh.gov.
