Modernism Made Monumental, University of Georgia

I am excited and honoured to announce that I will be giving a paper at the Modernism Made Monumental symposium at the University of Georgia this coming October in conjunction with the exhibition "Icon of Modernism: Representing the Brooklyn Bridge, 1883–1950", on view at the Georgia Museum of Art September 17–December 11, 2016.

My paper will discuss the potential for horizontal buildings to be monumental within modernism and will do so by looking at two buildings by Mies van der Rohe: the Farnsworth House (built in 1951) in Plano, Illinois and the Seagram building, a New York skyscraper (1958).
