In the end of Triennale 2010 (the 2nd edition), we’ve launched the Facsimile edition of the catalogue of the first exhibition of architecture made at MoMA, educational institution funded back in 1929, considered today as one of the most influential museums of modern art in the world.
Held in 1932, this exhibition constitutes a fundamental framework in the history of architecture. From Barry Bergdoll, curator of architecture and design of MoMA between 2007 and 2013, and Delfim Sardo, university professor curator and essayist. This publication was published in partnership with the Lisbon Architecture Triennale and with the MoMA.
(…)”the ideas of a number of progressive architects have converged to form a genuinely new style which is rapidly spreading throughout the world. Both in appearance and structure this style is peculiar to the twentieth century and is a fundamentally original as the Greek, or Byzantine or Gothic. In the following pages Mr. Hitchcock and Mr. Johnson have outlined its history and its extent. Because of its simultaneous development in several countries and because of its world-wide distribution it has been called the international style.”
