From Bauhaus to the Boroughs of New York: Modernism and the Subway Map

When: Thu., March 7, 5:30 p.m. 2013

Lecture and Book Signing with Peter B. Lloyd, author of "Vignelli Transit Maps." The eminent designer Massimo Vignelli is well known for half a century of leading-edge design work with his wife, Lella Vignelli. In 1972, Vignelli designed a striking new map for the New York City subway, which became immensely popular but also highly controversial. This book is the first in-depth study of Vignelli’s contribution to transit maps, which examines in detail both the creation of the original 1972 map, and its re-creation in 2008 and 2011.
