"2001: Building for Space Travel"
2001-03-24 until 2001-10-21
Art Institute of Chicago
Chicago, IL, USA

With the Museum of Flight in Seattle, the Department of Architecture at The Art Institute of Chicago is co-organizing an exhibition exploring the evolution and projected visions of architecture and design for space travel. 2001: Building for Space Travel will examine perceptions of the space age beyond the millennium mark. The exhibition will educate the general public about the work that architects, civil engineers, and industrial and graphic designers have done for the space program, as seen through structures from the launch facilities at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, to the new International Space Station, a monumental 17-country effort.

Historical components focusing on the aesthetics of the space race in the Cold War will include works by Soviet engineers and designers and noted American industrial designers, such as Raymond Loewy and John Frassanito & Associates. The role of architects in aerospace research, manufacturing, and designing launch facilities are examined through the work of major architectural firms such as the Austin Company, Bechtel, BRPH, DMJM, Pereira & Luckman, Sverdrup, and Urbahn Associates. Thematic topics examine the reality of design for space as compared to the fantastic vision of space in media and popular culture.
