Please join SAH/SCC as we welcome authors Julia Jamrozik and Coryn Kempster who will discuss their new book, Growing up Modern: Childhoods In Iconic Homes (Birkhauser, 2021).

This new book explores questions we have all wondered about. What was it like to grow up in a Modernist residence? Did these radical environments shape the way that children looked at architecture later in life? The oral history in this book paints a uniquely intimate portrait of Modernism.

The authors conducted interviews with people, who spent their childhood in radical Modernist domestic spaces, uncovering both serene and poignant memories. The recollections range from the ambivalence of philosopher Ernst Tugendhat, now 90 years old, who lived in the famous Mies van der Rohe house in Brno (1930) to the fond reminiscing of the youngest daughter of the Schminke family, who still dreams of her Scharoun-designed ship-like villa in Löbau (1933). The book offers a unique, private and often refreshing perspective on these icons of the avant-garde.
