Atomic Crash Party #4 - Preview


One of Indy's finest Mid Century Moderns plays host to ACP #4




Prior to unfurling details for Atomic Crash Party #4 we have noteworthy news worth noting. Noted. Here we go.

Atomic Crash Party getting all grown up. Thanks to all of you.

1.) Several pics of ACP #3 were featured in Indy Star's Sunday insert. Thanks to hipster photographer Jammy Straub for shooting away and passing images on to important editor type people.

2.) Spring will bring several new Atomic Crash Party cities. Rumors include Portland, Atlanta, Chicago, and Birmingham. If you want to help bring ACP to your town, holler.

3.) Atomic Crash Party will be getting its own site to better handle multi-city ACP info. Will be one-stop-shop for calendar of events, reviews and glorious pics of the nation's finest Mid Century Modern homes.

On to task at hand. Atomic Crash Party #4. Crashing all up in an Evans Woollen home. Woollen is one of Indy's most influentially relevant architects. He's still living but not in Indy. So he will not be attending.

Stopped by this place two days ago. Still drooling. Need a bib.

Appetite whetting pics...

Pics fall short of actual presence this home imposes on your Mid Century Modern loving heart.




Good taste in furniture and art.


Fantastic Danish Mod collection throughout this abode.


Note lovely terrazzo floors.


Some may recognize this pad. If so, good eye. We posted about it in an early real estate round-up. Here's the cool part; home is on the market. So if during the party you find yourself thinking "I would love to live here" - you could make that happen.
