New Modernists

The fourth grade is starting a unit on design. They will be learning about modernist designers and architects. They will learn about how "everyone deserves good design". They will study Eames, Girard and the Wrights. They will study architecture from Le Corbusier, Mies Van Der Rohe and Gropius. We started the day off with a little perusing of Dwell magazine. The students compared the homes and products in the magazine to their homes. It was eye opening.
