Watch on PBS Nine Network: Mid-Century Modern in St. Louis

« Back to All Events

This March our local PBS affiliate, the Nine Network of Public Media, will air Mid-Century Modern in St. Louis, a special that tells the human stories behind the MCM movement after World War II. Writer/producer Kara Vaninger says the story of Midcentury Modern architecture isn’t just about buildings and artistic vision; it’s about a hopeful time when a new consciousness about how our lives could change for the better was taking hold.

The hour-long program includes a segment on Belleville architect Charles E, King, FAIA. You’ll see lots of photos of King designs and hear from the current owners of the Osland house, designed in 1962, about their experiences living in a King-designed home. In addition, Mr. King’s son, James, is interviewed about the his father’s work and life. The segment on King comes near the end of the production.
