Greening Modernism: How a Defining Movement of the 20th-Century Can Inform 21st-Century Real Estate Development Print E-mail
Saturday, 13 November 2010 00:00
Modernism was the defining cultural movement of the 20th century. While its application to the built environment lacked our understanding of resource constraints, its hallmark was, in fact, a precursor of today's quest for sustainability: realizing maximum value from minimal means tailored to local conditions.

WHERE: The William and Anita Newman Conference Center, Room 750, 151 East 25th Street, New York, NY 10010
{sidebar id=1}

Over time, Modernism's precepts were misapplied or neglected, with damaging results. But its power is undimmed. By applying its integrative, analytic rigor and its focus on solving problems at the deepest level, we can both serve sustainability goals and enrich our quality of life. And we can honor and reclaim the authenticity of place.

Eero Saarinen's Miller House Opening to the Public Print E-mail
Friday, 05 November 2010 06:20
Saarinen-miller-house-03Last October, the Indianapolis Museum of Art had announced that the IMA will open Miller House and Garden to the public in May 2011. We are reissuing the announcement, since the tickets are now available for visitors to purchase tickets online at www.imamuseum.org and at www.columbus.in.us. To order by phone, visitors may call (800) 468-6564.

Located in Columbus, Ind., and one of the country’s most highly regarded examples of mid-century Modernist residences, the Miller House was designed by Eero Saarinen, with interiors by Alexander Girard, and landscape design by Daniel Urban Kiley.

Members of the Miller family donated the house and gardens, along with many of its original furnishings, to the Museum in 2009. Additionally, members of the Miller family and the Irwin-Sweeney-Miller Foundation have donated $5 million to establish an endowment for the house and surrounding grounds. The IMA is working with the Columbus Area Visitors Center to offer public guided tours of the house and gardens beginning in May 2011.
