mid tex mod - Tour Day
What is Tour Day?
Docomomo US Tour Day 2020: The '70s Turn 50!
To honor this year’s tour day theme, “The ‘70s Turn 50,” join Mid Tex Mod for a virtual guided tour of the former Faulk Central Library in Austin, Texas. This imposing New Formalist building, completed in the 1970s by the Austin firm of Jessen, Associates, Inc., features floor-to-ceiling windows with original concrete planter boxes and a cantilevered design of the upper floors delicately poised above the recessed ground floor. A virtual tour of the interior with Mike Miller, Managing Archivist of the Austin History Center, will showcase the grand central staircase, former library spaces, and some of the original 1970s furnishings. Greg Smith, National Register Coordinator with the Texas Historical Commission, will tour the exterior highlighting the building’s architectural significance.
