Restomodern at West Coast Modern Week 2023
VANCOUVER: The West Coast Modern League is proud to be a returning partner in this year’s West Coast Modern Week. On July 5th, we invite you to join the West Coast Modern League for a conversation exploring the architectural interpretation of the restomod concept (restoration/modification) with leading local designers who are engaged in sensitive and innovative architectural RESTOMODS to significant modern houses in the region. What, if anything, is precious to the original “classic” architecture? What modifications should we make to usher this architecture into the 21st century? How, among other things, do we uphold our regional expression of modernism while improving for healthier, more environmentally conscious spaces? Of much debate among design and heritage critics, this discussion will probe the varied and divergent approaches used in the act of restoring our modern architectural history while modifying to contemporary technologies and standards of living.
RESTOMOD – Originating from the classic car world, the term refers to the restoration of a classic car that seeks to maintain the original aesthetic character and design qualities of the vehicle, while improving performance by utilizing contemporary technology and systems that may not have originally been available.
This event is presented as part of West Coast Modern Week 2023, organized by the West Vancouver Art Museum.
