Settle into December with this selection of modernist goings-on:

 

Modernism in Vienna

The LA Review of Books this week reviewed Marjorie Perloff’s new book, Edge of Irony: Modernism in the Shadow of the Habsburg Empire.

 

Take me  to the church on time…

A new book discusses St Peter’s Seminary, a modernist cathedral in Cardross, described as ‘both Scotland’s best and worst 20th century building and still continues to captivate’.

 

Grand Designs

This 1960s modernist home in rural Wiltshire is up for this year’s RIBA House of the Year Award.

 

Sunshine Modernism

If Wiltshire isn’t to your taste, what about jetting off to Hawaii to experience the work of ‘the undisputed master of Hawaiian modernism‘, Vladimir “Val” Ossipoff.

 

 

And finally….

Congratulations are due to Paul Saint-Armour, who won the 2016 Modernist Studies Association Book Prize for his book Tense Future: Modernism, Total War, Encyclopedic Form.
