John McAndrew's Modernist Vision
(1000 items available)
John McAndrew's Modernist Vision tells the compelling story of the architect, scholar, and curator John McAndrew, who played a key role in redefining modernism in the United States from the 1930s onward. John McAndrew designed the Vassar College Art Library—arguably the first modern interior on a college campus—and was the curator of architecture at the Museum of Modern Art in New York from 1937 to 1941. McAndrew was instrumental in creating a distinct and innovative aesthetic that bridged the European modernist lineage and American regional vernacular. Providing a fascinating glimpse into McAndrew's life, his associations with important architects and artists, and the historical context that shaped his work, this book is a thoroughly researched testament to a man who left a powerful mark on the evolution of American architecture.
