Hello Mid-Century Mundane fans,
I’m pleased to announce that Queens Modern is here! This new project is a natural progression of my interest in “everyday” mid-century architecture and focuses on a specific group of buildings for a more in-depth examination of the genre.
In 2014, I started the Queens Modern project to explore modern and mid-century architecture in Queens, NY. The subject is viewed through the lens of the Queens Chamber of Commerce’s Building Awards program. From 1948-1970, the Chamber honored nearly 400 buildings of all types across the borough. The Queens Modern website features 150 of these award-winning projects, and will eventually include all award-winners from this time period as well as dozens of other Queens buildings of the era.
Visit the Queens Modern website (queensmodern.com) now to learn more!
I will still be posting regularly on Mid-Century Mundane including some cross-posts with Queens Modern, so stayed tuned for more.
Queens Modern is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Special thanks to the Queens Chamber of Commerce for their support of Queens Modern.
