> DESCRIPTION

Unlike the 1937 exhibition in Paris or the 1939 fair in San Francisco, where architectural styles emphasized Modern Classicism, New York's World's Fair of 1939-40 showcased the work of an array of cutting-edge architects and designers. Working under the broad umbrella of the "International Style," these innovators included such notables as Alvar Aalto, Wallace K. Harrison, Oscar Niemeyer, and Skidmore, Owings and Merrill. Architectural historian John Kriskiewicz will shed light on these pivotal figures and how they helped to transform post-war architecture and design.
