Architect/historian Steve Wiser’s latest book is “Distinctive Houses of Louisville,” and he’s giving a talk on the architects who designed the residences. Some of the designers he’ll discuss are Dodd & Cobb, Jasper Ward and Michael Koch. Although sponsored by the Central Kentucky Chapter of the American Institute of Architects and the Filson Historical Society, the event is open to the public. “Louisville consistently ranks high as one of the best places to live in America,” Wiser says in his book. “To be a great place to live, there has to be good, desirable neighborhoods, and the city has many … Within these remarkable environments are a variety of housing types, from basic shapes like shotguns and bungalows, to more elaborate styles such as Classical Revivals and Tudors.” —Jo Anne Triplett
