If you’re interested in structures with pizzaz and know your Southern California citizens as well as your own home, you probably really liked several stunning buildings in Moncton.
Because the oceanic cozy city is known for some striking towers and some ultra-cute cottages as well as a whole series of craft houses that could easily be the cover of any magazine.
Invited snooping only ever happens when a home tour or architectural event comes up, but you can explore while in your pajamas?
That seems like a pretty rare occurrence, and yet it will happen September 17-27 when Moncton Architecture Week returns as a semi-virtual event.
Prepare for “10 Days of Architecture, Design & Discovery” as you partake in “… a range of tours, events and educational opportunities that celebrate architecture, promote conservation, sustainability and new ideas”. It’s a multi-prism party, in short, appealing to architecture fans who have their favorite areas.
Some highlights? A fascinating look into a “bungalow mansion” built by Miner Smith and a visit to the oh so modified Atkinson Brick House.
There are also some en-route, self-guided events that allow you to observe socially distant and other security measures while enjoying an architectural adventure.
“Metropolis” will be shown at a pop-up drive-in at the Scottish Rites Event Center on Saturday, September 19, while explorers will have the opportunity to drive at their own pace on a self-guided tour of historic downtown.
