Tale of Tomorrow

Utopian Architecture in the Modernist Realm

The utopian buildings of the 1960s and 1970s never go out of style. The Tale of Tomorrow surveys this diverse twentieth-century phenomenon, featuring renowned works like The House of the Century or the TWA terminal, as well as lesser-known masterpieces, and profiling major thinkers such as Oscar Niemeyer, Le Corbusier, and Eero Saarinen.

Utopian architecture aimed to overcome social divisions and political strife, put us in touch with nature, and enable us to live humane, healthy lives. For half a century, it was both hope and inspiration. By digging through archives, corresponding with descendants of departed architects, and restoring photographs, the collection of utopian approaches herein maintains a visual power and infectious optimism.
