Few facets of mid-century design are as easily recognizable as the concrete screen block. But up until now, a thorough catalogue of this beloved mid-century building material was hard to find. The new book, Concrete Screen Block: The Power of Pattern, finally gives the concrete screen block the credit its due! Join authors Ron and Barbara Marshall for a presentation on this unsung champion of 1950s design, and delve deep into the creation, explosion, demise, and resurgence of the concrete screen block. Make sure to purchase your ticket to the Vintage Vegas Home Tour, where you’ll see multiple examples of the how a simple repetitive concrete square created complex patterns and visual interest against the minimal building forms of the mid-century.

As an added bonus, authors Ron and Barbara Marshall will be signing their book Concrete Screen Block: The Power of Pattern following their presentation. Purchase a copy ahead of time and bring it along! A handful of copies will be available on site as well, but on site availability is not guaranteed.
