Landmarks Association to Open Architecture Education Center

The Landmarks Association of St. Louis is moving forward with its plans to relocate its office to ground floor of the Lammert Building at 911 Washington and launch Architecture St. Louis – an architectural education center.

According to Landmarks:

"The new space will permit the Association to continue its research and advocacy work while expanding and enriching its educational mission. In addition to new office space, Architecture St. Louis will include a gallery for first rate exhibitions, and a multi-purpose educational space for lectures, presentations and forums. We are already planning an opening exhibit for fall as well as other programs that will commence as soon as the new space is ready."

The Landmarks Association has raised over $275,000 thus far, but is looking to raise an additional $250,000 to cover the costs. For more information, and to make a donation, click here.

Architecture St. Louis will give downtown a much-needed cultural attraction while helping to raise awareness of preservation-related issues in St. Louis. This will be a very exciting addition to downtown.
