Exciting News for Mid-Century Mundane

Mid-Century Mundane was started as a website looking to document just a fragment of the mid-century regional and vernacular architecture out there. And now we take our next big step with a more robust project to examine a specific grouping of such architecture.

Over the next year, I will be researching and documenting more than 400 buildings and sites in the borough of Queens, built between 1945 and 1970. The purpose of this project will be to examine the larger significance of regional modernism and its impact on the development of Queens and New York City as a whole.

I look forward to sharing more as this project develops. The end goal is a small exhibition/publication on these buildings, but even more relevant, a separate but related website to Mid-Century Mundane, that documents those buildings that remain. Stay tuned!

Frampton, Mid-Century Mundane
