MCM Architects on the Record   2 comments

The Art Institute of Chicago has a large collection of transcripts of interviews with 20th Century architects “who shaped the physical environment in Chicago and surrounding communities”. Many of them are mid-century modernists who were well known in their day. Unfortunately, most have passed on and are becoming forgotten.

Here are a few with examples of their work:


Lever House

Bunshaft Residence - 1
Bunshaft Residence


Marina City


Leavengood Residence
