Queens Modern: The Architects
Queens Modern is the definitive case study of how high style mid-century modernism filtered down to the masses and defined the New York City borough of Queens. The borough is the largest geographically and, if independent, would be the fourth most populous city in the country. Yet its architecture, including its significant collection of regional mid-century architecture, remains unstudied and unappreciated. Queens Modern, the first examination of the borough’s modern heritage, seeks to address this longstanding discrepancy. More about Frampton Tolbert’s work.
