Quick Reference

A broad architectural term taken from the title of the catalogue, written by the architectural historian Henry-Russell Hitchcock and the architect Philip Johnson, to the architectural exhibition The Modern Movement, held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1932. The exhibition featured most of the leading modern European architects of the day including, from the Bauhaus in Germany, Walter Gropius and Mies van der Rohe, and from other countries, France's Le Corbusier and Finland's Alvo Altaar. Highly influential, the exhibition did much to propagate the cause of modernist architecture throughout the world.
