Technological advances as well as the general social, political, and economic climate have always been of great interest to architects. Toys and the Modernist Tradition examines at how toy manufacturers responded to the exciting and rapidly changing ideas of modern architects. Many of the exhibited toys were designed by leading architects of the modern movement, including Bruno Taut, Josef Hoffmann, and Charles Eames.
Toys and the Modernist Tradition is the fourth in a series of exhibitions featuring the CCA’s collection of architectural toys and games, acquired with the support of Bell Canada.
Curated by Howard Shubert and Rosemary Haddad, CCA.
