MAD Week: Showcasing Modesto’s architecture and design Sept. 21–28, 2019
MAD Week, the apt acronym for “Modesto architecture and design,” is returning to its September slot with a full lineup of events, all of which are centered in the Downtown Design District, with events offered to the public at no charge. This year’s theme is “Bauhaus 100: Modesto,” a nod to 100 years of the functional, modernist — and revolutionary — design school and its connections and contributions to Modesto. Modernist Bauhaus style is on full and exemplary display at 1100 I Street, the County Clerk’s Office, called the Stanislaus County Hall of Records when it was built in 1939.
