Modern STL presents our first-ever annual National Preservation Month Showcase event, which highlights an exemplary mid-century modern renovation. This year we’ll visit MoModerne‘s fabulous new store on Watson Road, opened in August 2013. MoModerne revived a 1961 commercial building originally designed by Erwin Knoesel (architect of Tropicana Lanes) for Herman Knoll Florist. This reception will feature light snacks and drinks on us, as well as a short talk on Watson Road and the history of Route 66 by Joe Sonderman, author of Route 66 Missouri and a KLOU radio DJ. To top it all off, MoModerne will offer a 25 percent discount on single items purchased during the event, so we’ll see you there!
