December 29, 2009Tuesday’s Retro Guest – MSN’s Mid-Century Architecture Article
Thanks to Sara for the heads up on this great article! I love the pictures of the houses. Awesome!
I came across this article on MSN about Mid-Century architecture a few weeks ago and just had to share it with all my MCM loving friends here. It is basically a 15 picture slide show of different MCM homes across America. They show some really great Mid-Century homes that I know you will all love. Here are a few pictures from the article.
Mies van der Rohe designed this house, in Plano Illinois, for Edith Farnsworth in 1951. Drats! I wish I knew about this house when I lived in Chicago in the 90’s. I lived really close to this house and never even realized it was there. I would love to take a tour of it, maybe someday……………
Architect Philip Johnson designed this Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut in 1949. I have never been to Connecticut, but I would love to tour this house too!
And, last but not least, architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater in Mill Run, Pennsylvania. This home was designed in 1939. I need to do a tour of America so I can see all of these great MCM homes in person!
All of these homes are REALLY fantastic. They look as fresh and new today as the day they were built – 50 to 60 years ago! If you have the time please check out the link to see more great Mid-Century Architecture.
