Friends, my second podcast episode is live on iTunes. Tune in here.
Matt Amman, founder of MidCentury Modern Facebook group, talks about how Modernism flourished in Wisconsin - the Milwaukee and Madison area, largely thanks to Frank Lloyd Wright's proteges.
Amman himself lives in a MidCentury Modern home himself. Hear him share passion for all things Mid Century Modern, how he and neighbors who also own modernist homes, gather regularly over cocktails. The only things missing from their gatherings are "Mad Men" inspired attire.
He discusses architect Donald Grieb, who designed the Mitchell Park Domes (1955), one of the largest installations of Modernism in Milwaukee, Eero Saarinen's War Memorial Center (1957) among other notable commercial structures in the city.
