Amy Auscherman, Corporate Archivist at Herman Miller, Inc., and Darrin Alfred, Curator of Architecture and Design at Denver Art Museum discuss architectural and archival preservation as it relates to the renovation of the Gio Ponti-designed Martin Building at the Denver Art Museum and the cataloging of architecturally significant landmarks such as the Miller House and Garden.

  • Copies of the new Phaidon publication Herman Miller: A Way of Living, co-edited by Auscherman and detailing the century-long story of the Herman Miller company, will be available for purchase and signing.
  • This talk is part of +Design, DWR’s ongoing event and editorial series, which explores the connections between design and the world around us.
