Albert Frey: The Architectural Envoy (Part I)

  • This event has passed.

Albert Frey, the unpretentious Swiss-born mid-20th century architect, aided in the introduction of Corbusian-influenced modernism to the USA. Through his innate curiosity of the American landscape, he developed an extraordinary design style, blending industrial techniques and a love of nature. This is evident by his work on the famed Aluminaire House, the Canvas Weekend House, the New York Museum of Modern Art, as well as his Kocher-Samson Building in Palm Springs. Featuring Frey’s early life up until 1939, it is evident why Frey is such a significant force in the development of modernism in the USA.
