“Design After Modernism” | Judith B. Gura, author of the book by the same title
Bauhaus, Postmodernism, High Tech, and Green Design: Judith Gura explains the important movements, forms, and furnishings from the 1950s to the present. With the first decade of the 21st century behind us, it's time to reassess the concept of “modern”. Design After Modernismoffers an overview of design over the past four decades—some evolutionary, some expected, and some extraordinary. It identifies the diverse influences that have generated new directions in design and illustrates many of the most characteristic, most noteworthy, and most innovative objects in this rich and variegated mix. A book signing will follow.

“Modern Architecture, Art Deco to Contemporary in Manhattan”
Alfred Pommer of New York City Cultural Walking Tours
As far back as 1899 anti-historical styles can be found in Manhattan’s buildings. The facade of Louis Sullivan’s Bayard Conduit Building foreshadows both Art Deco and Modern architecture. After WW I these two distinctive styles of architecture became popular, competing to become the dominant style. After WW II Modern (International Style) dominated into the early 1980‘s when Post Modern became the style of choice. In the late 1990’s Deconstructionism exerted a strong influence. More contemporary buildings are harder to label, and are sometimes called Late Modern, Folded Glass Towers, or Hi Tech. Alfred Pommer is the author of 2 books:Exploring the Original West Village and New York's SoHo.
