New Posts by Michael Webb on FORM Views

Over on the FORM Views page, Michael Webb has recently posted a pair of posts that will interest those who like to mix design with media. First, Webb describes the Dziga-Vertov retrospective at the Hammer Museum’s Thornton Wilder. An excerpt from the post: “Beyond the formal brilliance is a fascinating portrait of the Soviet Union—not as the squalid backwater it was, but as a heroic beacon for humanity.”

A second post reviews the new book from Jean-Louis Cohen titled The Future of Architecture Since 1889. Here is an excerpt from that post: “Cohen gives an organic account of how architecture was shaped by social forces, economic growth, war, and advances in technology.”

Michael Webb is a regular contributor to FORM. Check back in monthly for new posts from this author of 26 books, including his most recent, Modernist Paradise: Niemeyer House, Boyd Collection (Rizzoli) and Venice CA: Art +Architecture in a Maverick Community (Abrams).
