This publication celebrates the CCA’s acquisition of the personal archives of the Chicago architect Myron Goldsmith (1918–1996). Reflecting over fifty years of study, work, and teaching, this rich body of notes, sketchbooks, drawings, and study documents traces the unique, experimental progress of Goldsmith’s career: as a student under Mies van der Rohe and Ludwig Hilberseimer; as an assistant to Mies in his Chicago office; as a Fulbright scholar in Rome with Pier Luigi Nervi; as an engineer and architect in the SOM offices in San Francisco and Chicago; as a professor at the IIT Graduate School of Architecture; and as a design consultant in large-scale engineering and architecture.
