American Glamour and the Evolution of Modern Architecture

American Glamour and the Evolution of Modern Architecture

by A T Friedman (Author)

Synopsis

The sleek lines and gleaming facades of the architecture of the late 1940s and 1950s reflect a culture fascinated by the promise of the Jet Age. This work draws on a vast range of sources to argue that the aesthetics of mid-century modern architecture reflect an increasing fascination with 'glamour'.
