'Clean Lines, Open Spaces' premieres tonight on AETN

'Clean Lines, Open Spaces' premieres tonight on AETN


“Clean Lines, Open Spaces: A View of Mid-Century Modern Architecture,” a new documentary produced by the Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN) will premiere tonight at 9 p.m. on AETN.

“Clean Lines, Open Spaces,” produced by AETN’s Mark Wilcken, focuses on the construction boom while the United States recovered from World War II, a time of optimism and hope for the future. Mid-century architects captured these feelings in their bold new designs, many of which reflected the International style that had been developing in Europe since before World War I. This new architecture used modern materials such as reinforced concrete, glass and steel and was defined by clean lines, simple shapes and unornamented facades.

“‘Clean Lines, Open Spaces’ is unique and challenging,” AETN Executive Producer Carole Adornetto said.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The Arkansas REALTORS® Association  announced that September home sales were 10.28 percent higher than September 2010 while the average price of a home in Arkansas increased by less than 1 percent.  For the quarter (July - September), home sales increased 16 percent with the average price of a home in Arkansas decreasing almost 4 percent.

"As the Arkansas REALTORS® Association has been predicting, Arkansas home sales continue to be quite strong," said Amy Glover Bryant, Director of Communications for the Association.  "In the third quarter, Arkansas REALTORS® sold a total of 6,671 homes versus 5,719 in the third quarter of 2010.  Average prices during that time period were $143,944 compared to the third quarter of 2010 when the average price of a home in Arkansas was $149,430.  Affordability and strong mortgage rates are certainly helping to drive this year's improved numbers.  We do exp

LITTLE ROCK – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development today awarded a $1,998,621 grant to the Southern Bancorp Capital Partners of Arkadelphia.   The grant is part of a national effort to address distressed housing conditions and concentrated poverty.   HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan said the grants from HUD’s new Rural Innovation Fund promote an ‘entrepreneurial approach’ to affordable housing and economic development in rural areas.  Overall, $28 million was awarded to 46 rural and tribal communities throughout the nation.

"Rural America is vast and diverse, and different communities face different challenges and opportunities,” said Secretary Donovan.

Housing market sees positive numbers

(KTHV) -- Both the numbers of houses sold and the median price for sales grew in the Little Rock/North Little Rock market from June 2010 to June 2011.

But nationally, the numbers aren't as promising. The National Association of Realtors says home sales fell 0.8 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.77 million homes. Economists say that's far below the 6 million homes per year that must be sold to sustain a healthy housing market.

"It's just a beautiful place to live. Little Rock is a wonderful place. We have a lot of stuff to do. It keeps growing," says Joel Tvedten, owner of River Rock Realty.
