When scientists first divided the atom at the end of World War II, everyone knew that “the future” had arrived. This technological advancement affected everything from the economy to politics to art, and architects like William Pereira and Albert Frey began designing buildings that defied gravity or resembled lunar landers. Join us as we explore the age of “Atomic Architecture in America: 1945-1965” in the latest episode of the Art in Architecture webinar series.

atomic arch“The Atomic Age is an important part of the history of American architecture,” says Rubina Siddiqui, Assoc. AIA, Nemetschek Vectoworks' senior industry specialist of BIM solutions, who co-hosted the webinar alongside her colleague, architect Steve Alden, AIA. “Even though the movement isn’t exclusively American, its impact on the current landscape in the United States shows how even the recent past can have an incredible influence on current design trends.”

The webinar is now available to watch on-demand. Viewers who provide their AIA credentials can take an associated quiz to earn 1 AIA LU.
