Clarification. Just because a structure was built mid century doesn't make it styled 'mid century modern' does it? For example the National Bank of Denmark and the Bailey house in LA look classic modernist in the van der Rohe style, no?

It depends how you define mid century modern. For me it's just modernism from the late 40s to the early 70s. It makes this thread easier to fill.

Really? I think they look interesting. Especially considering they are a functional piece of machinery.

I understand the concept of the thread, although I can't tell the difference between types of modernism.

I think, though, that this thread could still be split. The houses and buildings would be better off in a thread of the same name in the Architecture section. Radios, chairs, furniture, etc, should remain here in the Design & Lifestyle subforum.

I on the other hand don't think you can define it simply according to a time period. For that matter the design styles were never very closely related to the decades - deign from 1945-1955 was quite different from the 1955-1965 styles, 1965-1975 is different yet again, and same with 1975-1985.

To me, Mid Century Modern is exemplified by designs emphasizing movement, floating, and pattern. For instance dynamic shapes, thrusting lines, strong emphasis on vertical lines and planes with tiny little supports, and screens and grills. I think the styles popular in the late sixties, where there was a lot of reliance on plastics and bright colors, and chunkier geometric shapes, should have its own style.

I think it does. The structures more appropriately belong in the Architecture section, as it's architecture. Plus, the work you put into this thread would be noticed by more people. Posts showcasing other items, like furniture or the Lamborghini Miura, would then be more prominent.

I don't have moderating capabilities in this thread, but let me ask one of the others if we can split this thread in two, if you agree with that.

Yeah I`m fine with moving it. I also have a thread called Early Modern Design that could also be moved.
