The City of Aspen launched a new website this week highlighting “modern era” local architecture. The 73 properties featured on the site were built post World War Two, mainly between the 1940s and 1970s. Aspen Public Radio's Marci Krivonen reports.
The mid-20th century was when Aspen went from being a quiet mountain town to an internationally known resort and the changes are reflected in the area’s architecture. Amy Simon is the Historic Preservation Officer with the City of Aspen.
