After spending time thinking about Zaha on Monday, I spent some more time flipping through some of my other favorite interiors by classic architects. These are just the tip of the mid-century iceberg and I’m sure it will be the first in a long series… but here we go.
Marcel Breuer was one of my first architectural (and furniture) design loves. I went to the Whitney in New York way back when and just adored every little detail. I love his big brutalist concrete work. The stair in the Whitney (below) could definitely be on the list of stairs that make me feel feelings.
And then there’s Louis Kahn with a concrete and wood atrium at Exeter Library to make you swoon
Right in my own backyard there is the Farnsworth House by Mies Van Der Rohe.. who clearly never stayed there in the summer because lord is it hot and there are only two operable windows. But the travertine floors alone are worth sweating it out.
And obviously the Eames house is a slam dunk of mid-century hotness
