The Young Ohio Preservationists are pleased to present McMansion Hell: LIVE featuring speaker Kate Wagner on Tuesday, October 17. Kate Wagner is well-known for «McMansion Hell», which is a bi-weekly blog that aims to educate the masses about architectural concepts, urban planning, environmentalism and history by making examples out of the places we love to hate the most.. Since its launch in July 2016, the blog has been featured in a wide range of publications, including the Huffington Post, Slate, Business Insider and Paper Magazine.
During McMansion Hell: LIVE, blogger Kate Wagner will discuss merits of good design, contemporary architecture, and answer crowd questions. Attendees have the opportunity to submit photos in advance of McMansion Hell: LIVE (email [email protected]
by September 30) and win advance prizes. The best photo submitted will be selected by Kate Wagner and will be featured on a promotional postcard for the event.
Proceeds of this event benefit Heritage Ohio’s Save Ohio’s Treasures program, which aims to provide a funding bridge to make preservation of threatened or neglected historic properties a reality. Save Ohio’s Treasures is a revolving loan fund that will provide financial opportunities for historic property owners.
This unique evening will overlap with the annual Heritage Ohio conference. For more information on conference registration, go to heritageohio.org.
