- Glenanna, a most romantic name for a beautiful home in Floyd, Virginia. This gorgeous Greek Revival was built in 1849 by an Irish mason named Henry Dillon, for local grandee Dr Tazewell Headen. Headen's wife was Mary Stuart, sister to the dashing Confederate cavalry officer J.E.B. Stuart. The front porch, though suited to the house, was added in the 1910s- the columns were salvaged from a home in Atlanta and hauled by train and wagon to Floyd. #preservation #historicpreservation #architecture #virginia #smalltown #history

- The Blue Plate Building began construction in November 1941 as the first big project of architect August Perez, Jr. The timing wasn't great with construction beginning about a month before Pearl Harbor was bombed and WWII began. This required creative solutions. According to the HRI website (who currently own the building), "Innovative measures were employed to continue construction. Second-hand railroad ties were shipped to a steel mill in St. Louis to be reworked and recycled as rebar to reinforce the concrete, and then shipped back to the Blue Plate site. To conserve copper wire, needed for the war effort, the electrical panels were concentrated in a water-proofed basement. Forms were built and concrete poured continuously to create a single monolithic exterior wall. Perez remarked 'it was the strongest air raid shelter in the United States.'" The Blue Plate Building is also notable for being one of the first mid-century buildings that was renovated with historic tax credits they got after being listed on the National Register of Historic Places. They were able to transform the former factory into artists lofts that are still in high demand today . . . . . #midmodarchitecture #modernarchitecture #historicpreservation #thisplacematters #modmondayz #midmod #midmodnola #midcentury #streamlinemoderne #architect #artistslofts #architecture #architect #augustperez #homesofnola #homesofinstagram #design #followyournola #nolaarchitecture #louisianaarchitecture #archi_ologie #oldhouselove #midmodmondays #modern #midcenturymodern #artdeco #blueplate #canigetasideofranchhouse #nola #louisiana #nationalregister

- The 1913 Pacific Electric Railway – El Prado Bridge is one of the oldest structures in the City of Torrance. This bridge was designed by Irving Gill, an early pioneer of Modern architecture. As it approached its 100th anniversary in 2013, the City decided to make repairs to the deteriorating bridge. The City restored this iconic piece of the Torrance landscape, and added in-ground lights to showcase the bridge at night. In 2015, this project earned an award from @laconservancy for reconstructing an icon of civic identity for the City of Torrance. Most importantly, the revitalization of this bridge demonstrated the community value of preservation. (📸: @blankshe)
