Design curator Donald Albrecht believes the real story is slightly different. Modern architecture itself may have left the public cold, but modern architecture in the movies caught its imagination by embodying. their fears, hopes and aspirations," he wrote in his book Designing Dreams. Worldly as we believe ourselves to be, cinema's cultural impact popularizes trends, and that was certainly true in the '50s and '60s

Modernism and commercial cinema were both born at the turn of the century and came into maturity in the 1920's and 1930's. In his book "Designing Dreams: Modern Architecture in the Movies", Donald Albrech explains how the futuristic theories of modernism were incorporated into movies.

Albrecht begins his book with a quick overview of modernist thought as it was developing in Europe in the years following the First World War. He then moves onto how these radical new ideas were embraced by the French and German film industry of the 1920's. With the rise of facism, many of Europe great modernist artists and architects fled Europe and found a new home in the booming Hollywood film industry.

The section of the that I found most interesting was Albrect's description of modernist styles favored by the different American movie studios. From the Bauhaus modernism of Paramount to the Streamline Modernism of MGM, Hollywood was an enthusiastic and early adopter of modernist tenants. In Depression era United States, modernism was harbinger of a new and better age to come.

This book is filled with numerous photos of stage sets from the 1920's and 1930's. It is a pleasure to see these idealized versions of the modernist credo. By 1931, Philip Johnson could have a museum show in New York and herald the rise of a new "International Style" of architecture. The value of this book is that it shows how cinema was the perfect incubtor and then spreader of modernist architectural thought througout the world. A must have book for all those interested in the birth and spread of modernism.
