World War II and the American Dream: How Wartime Building Changed a Nation - Livres de poche

1995, ISBN: 0262510839

ID: 9968416718

[EAN: 9780262510837], [PU: MIT Press (MA) April 1995], History|Military|World War II, Political Science|Public Policy|City Planning & Urban Development, Social Science|Customs & Traditions, Technology|Construction, with essays by Peter S. Reed, Robert Friedel, Margaret Crawford, Greg Hise, Joel Davidson, and Michael Sorkin Among the legacies of World War II was a massive building program on a scale that America had not seen before and has not seen since. The war effort created thousands of factories, homes, even entire cities throughout the country. Many of these structures still stand, the physical evidence of an unprecedented ability to harness the power and resources of a people. The complex legacy of this most notable period in our nation's history is discussed from a different perspective by each contributor. 'Peter S. Reed,' Associate Curator of the Department of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art, details the rise of modern architecture during the war -- housing designs that used the latest ideas in prefabricated construction methods, lightweight materials, innovative technologies, and a corporate and institutional aesthetic that helped popularize modernism as the appropriate image of American industrial might and corporate success. 'Robert Friedel,' Professor of History at the University of Maryland, documents the development of new materials, especially plastics, and discusses techniques for employing traditional materials in novel ways. 'Margaret Crawford,' Chair of the History and Theory of Architecture Program at the Southern California Institute of Architecture, explores the struggle of women and blacks for public housing. 'Greg Hise,' Assistant Professor in the School of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Southern California, considers how the construction of large-scale residential communities near defense plantsprefigured postwar suburbia. 'Joel Davidson,' historian of the 'World War II and the American Dream' exhibition, analyzes the impact of the war's building program on the postwar military-industrial complex. Among the legacies of World War II was a massive building program on a scale that America had not seen before and has not seen since. The war effort created thousands of factories and homes, evidence of an unprecedented ability to harness the power and resources of a people. The legacy of this period in our nation's history is discussed from a different perspective by each essay contributor. Scratching/scuffing on cover.
