Info

Join local historian Jason Bischoff-Wurstle, Director of the Photo Archives at the New Haven Museum, and the curators of Perverse Furniture, for a discussion on the reception of the Bauhaus in New Haven from the 1950's to the 1970's and it's relationship to the show.  This period was marked by Maurice E. H. Rotival's modernist city plan, which emphasized high-speed travel by highways and air, the election of a determined young mayor named Richard C. Lee, and the desire of Yale University to grow and expand its reach, physically and in academics.  Armed with deep pockets and the brightest young architectural talent in the United States, Yale partnered with the city and acted independently to enact a series of bold visions that promoted New Haven as a model of post war modernity.
