The 2007 Southern Garden Heritage Conference has been announced. Ten presentations are scheduled for the two day-conference at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia. Of special interest to DOCOMOMO/US, Georgia Chapter members and supporters is Georgia Harrison’s presentation Robert Marvin’s Residence in Walterboro: A Modernist Insertion in a Traditional Context. From the Conference announcement:

“Harrison’s presentation focuses on Robert Marvin’s 1950’s redesign of a small traditional residence in Walterboro, SC, to a modernist design set within the context of a street lined neighborhood of white-columned colonial homes. His design focused on views of the backyard, with strong inside-outside connections, and introduced modernism to an agrarian region”

Early registration ends January 15.
