Breuer, Saarinen and More at the National Building Musuem
The National Building Museum will be holding major retrospectives on two of the most influential modern designers and architects of the 20th century: Marcel Breuer and Eero Saarinen. The exhibit on Breuer starts Nov. 3, while the show on Saarinen begins May 3, 2008. The museum will also hold a major exhibit examining the World’s Fairs of the 1930s. The effort, which is scheduled for the summer of 2009, will “convey how six distinct fairs were constructed to represent ideas about the future through a shared modernist aesthetic.” I’m glad I work only a few blocks away.
