Docomomo US
Fire Stations Tour
DATE: 29/9/2018
In†occasion of the National Symposium to be held in Columbus, IN, Docomomo US prepared several thematic tours.

Discover the playfulness of fire station design under the influence of Postmodern icon Robert Venturi. The first stop is at Fire Station #1, one of Columbusí few surviving Art Deco buildings. Then to the centerpiece of the tour: completed in 1967, Fire Station # 4 is one of Venturiís earliest building projects and a harbinger of his later style. Explore the station and enjoy refreshments with special guest TBD. Trace Venturiís enduring influence at a fire station by regional architect William Burd in the 1980s. Round off the experience with a special stop at a little-visited Harry Weese project, designed to be a County Home for the Aged.
