How Immigrants Inspired American Mid-Century Design
America experienced a wave of European migrants during the early 20th century, some of whom were escaping war and oppression, while others sought opportunities in a growing democracy. These immigrants included giants of architecture and design: Mies van der Rohe, Walter Gropius, Laszlo Moholy Nagy, Eliel and Loja Saarinen, and Joseph and Anni Albers. They arrived in the US by securing teaching positions at universities throughout the country where they inspired the next generation of designers and architects such as Charles and Ray Eames, Florence Knoll, Jack Lenore Larson and I.M.Pei. Lay examines how the contributions of their work and teachings changed the face of American design.​
