About This Item

New York: W. W. Norton & Company, 2002. A crisp, clean Fine copy in a Near Fine dust jacket with a trace of rubbing. 311 pp., profusely illustrated, endnotes, chronology and index. This remarkable volume tells the unique history of modernism as reflected in the teaching of architecture, landscape architecture, and city planning at Harvard University's Graduate School of Design. Tracing developments at the GSD, which was home from 1937 to 1952 of Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, Anthony Alofsin reveals that America had initiated its own modern agenda before the arrival of the European modernist ideology. Filled with archival photographs and plans that have never been published before, this book will be of great interest to students and professionals in the fields of art, architecture, and design, as well as to architectural historians. 20 color and 250 black and white illustrations; plans. First Edition. Cloth-Backed Boards. Fine/Near Fine.
