Design Timeline

Starting from Revivalism We have University of Virginia main library. Into Arts and Crafts we come to the Gustav Stickling armchair, then Gaudi’s Casa Mila. In Art Deco there are many vertical buildings similar to the Chrysler building in design through thin narrow strong vertical elements. Modernism grew from Art Deco showing Corbusier Chapel at fifty. As modernism grew Eero Saarinen came to build the St. Louis arch presenting us with connections to the past, present and future. The High-tech movement came along through the 70-80s and Piano and Rogers Lloyds of London building was constructed. Finally we come to post modernism and the Indianapolis College Life Insurance building showing repetition and the idea of deconstruction.
