This is a great post from a while ago, but it is definitly still relevant and worth a read. Thanks to Secret Design Studio for discovering this one and for again providing such a great link to the world of Mid-Century Modern design!
There are so many amazing aspects of mid-century modern theory and style that should be incorporated into contemporary design. I will be returning to Australian modernist garden style very soon, but for now read on and I hope you get inspiration!
Bud Dietrich, AIA writes: ” ….. Maybe it’s because I’m more aware of these wonderful homes now, or maybe it’s that we’re all reacting to the recent past, but for whatever the reason I’m looking with fresh eyes at mid-century modernism. With true lightness and joy, these houses express a genuine optimism that tomorrow will be better than today; that our children’s world will be better than our own.
It seems therefore that we can take that mid-century modern spirit and combine it with today’s more sustainable and efficient processes and materials to achieve something all together new and exciting. The first step is to learn from these homes. So here are some of the lessons that I’ve learned. What about you? ”
