Summary Throughout his extraordinary career in architecture and interior design, Austrian Josef Frank (1885-1967) charted an original and complex version of modernism that expressed a unique view of the modern home, the single-family house, and its furnishings. This book - the first in English to analyze and interpret Frank's many achievements - brings his contributions out of obscurity and reveals the full scope of his alternative interpretation of the modern movement. In addition to ten essays on Frank's life and work, this book includes illustrations of 135 of Frank's architectural, furniture, and fabric designs, shown primarily in color. They trace his development as an architect and designer, from his early days in Vienna through his years in exile in Stockholm and New York. A selected list of his buildings, projects, and interior designs is found in the appendix. The book accompanies an exhibition of the same title mounted in May 1996 at The Bard Graduate Center in New York City.
