Our first big event of the year and boy was fun! Thanks to everyone who came out for the 3rd Annual Month of Modern Kick Off Party! It is always great to put a face to a name of someone that you’ve been emailing regularly over the last few months, so it was great to engage with key Month of Modern sponsors and partners.

In addition to having a good time with friends, we brought together many people who want to cultivate a conversation about Colorado modern, and present the Boulder region as one of the nation’s most vibrant hubs of modern design.

Our panel of speakers was an eclectic and energizing representation of our 2016 theme: Modern Perspectives on Housing.

  • Jennifer Egbert Modern Luxury Real Estate
    Emerging trends in real estate: The most significant trend in real estate is DOWNSIZING.
  • Cherie Goff, Principal at HMH Architecture + Interiors
    Better, not bigger: Principals of Modern Design and why they work
  • Danica Powell, Trestle Strategy
    Managing and entitling complex development & construction projects.
  • Mike Piche, Principal at Studio B
    Backyard Retreats: Conceptual design strategies for accessory structures in rural and urban contexts.
  • EJ Meade. Principal at Arch 11
    Size Matters – Designing Multi Family Housing for residential Neighborhoods: Most so-called “multi-family housing” responds to purely quantitative criteria, packing the largest possible number of units on a given piece of land. Multi-family housing can create successful small neighborhoods within the community, if carefully designed.
