SELECTED TOPICS IN ARCHITECTURE | Problems with the Prescription: The Reality of Regional Modern Architecture in America in the 1920s and 1930s

David Brashear, Interim Director, Muscarelle Museum of Art

With the International Style exhibition of 1932, the Museum of Modern Art plunged into the discourse regarding modern architecture. In this lecture, we will reflect on the efforts of MoMA to educate American designers about international architectural trends, while simultaneously missing the rich flavors of modernism that were thriving regionally in the United States.

Free to Members, W&M Students, Faculty, and Staff.
