Mid-Century Modern Complete

The definitive survey of midcentury modern design and architecture.

This volume is the single best source for anyone interested in exploring and experiencing midcentury modern, the international design movement that still influences houses and lifestyles from Palm Springs to Long Island and from Japan to Scandinavia. It is divided into three main sections: “Media and Masters" profiles key creators, including Charles and Ray Eames, George Nakashima, Jean Prouvé and Eero Saarinen; “Houses and Interiors” presents 20 seminal and complete midcentury modern houses and their furnishings, including buildings by Philip Johnson, Mies van der Rohe, Alvar Aalto and Marcel Breuer; and an alphabetical dictionary of people, terms and places provides a comprehensive reference to the movement. The informed and accessible texts are illustrated with more than 1,000 images that bring together classics and rarities, mass-produced items and unusual art objects.
