Architectural and cultural historian Judi Loach will give a lecture March 24 at 5 p.m. in Room 123 of the Jackson Street Building. A professor at Cardiff University in Wales, Loach will discuss “Celebrating the Architectural Legacy of the Modern Movement.” Open free to the public, the lecture will be followed by a reception. Both events are sponsored by the College of Environment and Design and the Student Historic Preservation Organization.

Loach is chair of the British chapter of ­DOCOMOMO, an international organization devoted to the documentation and conservation of buildings, sites and neighborhoods of the modern movement. In her lecture, Loach will discuss the organization’s efforts to preserve important ­20th-century architecture in Britain and to encourage greater public appreciation and awareness of this legacy.
