What is mid-century modernism? Some might only be acquainted with it via the popular TV show, Mad Men, or others through well-known structures such as the World Trade Towers. Modernism sprang up all over the world from the 1950s to the 1970s, and one rather fine example can be found on the campus of Butler University in Indianapolis. This most wonderful digital collection presents images and plans for the modernist Irwin Library, crafted by noted architect, Minoru Yamasaki. On the site, visitors can make their way through dozens of images that tell the story of this rather unique building, along with offering up images of Yamasaki at the dedication as well as students using the building for various activities, even studying.
