SVMA Presents Icons Of Modern Architecture

Posted by Renee Adelmann on Monday, January 6th, 2014 at 1:17pm.


The upcoming program at the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art looks like a perfect fit for those of us who appreciate modern architecture.  As part of the Site and Senses: The Architecture of Aidlin Darling Design exhibition that is showing at the museum through March 2, 2014, Icons of Modern Architecture will be hosted by art historian Ann Wiklund and will investigate modern design, including the influence that Bauhaus has had on Modernist architecture.

The program will be organized into four categories:

  • Designs for Living features single and multi-family housing.
  • Centers of Power puts a focus on business and commercial architecture.
  • Places of Worship looks at how modern design and tradition faith interact.
  • Travel, Leisure, and Learning includes airports, museums, and iconic university structures.

Modern buildings from all over the world will be showcased, including Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House and Falling Water, The Sydney Opera House, Chicago’s Seagram Building, and Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur.  The work of Aidlin Darling Design will be featured, along with that of iconic modern architects including Frank Gehry and Santiago Calatrava.

Icons of Modern Architecture will be presented 2-4 p.m. on January 14, 2014 and again on January 21.  To register for the event, or for more information, visit Sonoma Valley Museum of Art.
