Environmental Design Considerations

Saturday, Mar 16, 2013

What are the lessons learned from environmental design considerations in 20th Century architecture? Find out 29 January thru 16 March — Lessons from Modernism examines selected works of architecture completed between 1925–1970 through the lens of sustainability. This analysis of the use of environmental strategies — long before they were commonly used in 21st century buildings.

By examining the influence of nature and the environment in architectural design, the exhibit provides new insights into works achieved by diverse architects, including Le Corbusier, Paul Rudolph, Jean Prouve and Oscar Niemeyer and demonstrates how they integrated environmental concerns into their designs and explores the extent to which these practices have produced environmentally performative and distinctive architecture.
