Mid-century modern: house and home

The post- World War 2 period was a time of innovation, optimism and dreams. Many of Europe’s cities and towns had suffered devastating destruction and, in the wake of this, a wave of modernist design, architecture and art was used to rebuild our homes and our dreams. We will explore the period from the late 1940s to the end of the 1960s, looking at artists, architects and designers such as Isamu Noguchi, Alver Alto and Lucienne Day, how they were influenced by the events of the period, and how they went on to reshape our world then and still do today.
