Steedman Architectural Library & Paul Hohmann Lecture

Tonight, Thursday, April 16 there are three items of architectural interest taking place at the Saint Louis Public Library's Central Branch, 1301 Olive Street, St. Louis, MO 63103. Phone: (314) 241-2288.

1 Steedman Architectural Library
Visit the Steedman Architectural Library. The room will be open for tours from 6pm to 6:30pm prior to the lecture. This room features rare and beautiful books on architecture and the related arts. It was a gift from George Fox Steedman and the room itself is a work of art. Here are some of my photographs of the room:


2 Architecture Lecture Series

From the library's website:
This month’s lecture in the Architecture Around the World Series, presented by the Steedman Architectural Library and the Society of Architectural Historians, will feature Paul Hohmann, architect at E+A Architecture and blogger at Vanishing STL, as he discusses “From Abbeys to Street Art – Germany and Austria along the Danube.” The program takes place in Central’s Carnegie Room on April 16 at 6:30 p.m.
From 6 to 6:30pm, visitors can step inside and view one of Central’s most special rooms, the Steedman Architectural Library. The group will then move to the Carnegie Room for Paul Hohmann’s lecture.

The event is FREE and open to the public.
