As the recipient of the inaugural SIDA Foundation Professional Development Scholarship, Annalisa Capurro, Interior Designer and Design Educator at Design Centre Enmore, headed to the United States earlier this year with the premise of researching the preservation, restoration and promotion of Mid-Century Modernist architecture/design in Los Angles, Palm Springs and Chicago. This coincided with an invitation to present as part of the Architecture and Preservation Lecture Series and Panel Discussion at ‘Modernism Week’ in Palm Springs in February. Annalisa’s Sydney Design 2011 lecture will highlight the people, the passion and the places that inspire her in maintaining the momentum of Mid-Century Modernism, for the lessons it teaches today and the rich architectural legacy it leaves tomorrow.
Sydney Design events will be filmed by Powerhouse Museum staff and the content will be used by the Museum for promotion and this includes uploading into Powerhouse Museum accounts across a variety of third party platforms. If you do not wish to be filmed please inform the photographer/videographer at the time of the event.
