passion. beauty. betrayal. and architecture

a romance in four parts


In February 2010, rvds presented Modern Love, at the Virginia Center for Architecture. For four weeks, we introduced the thoughts, buildings and personalities that defined twentieth century architecture and design.


Modern Love was perfect for February (with Valentine's Day and all) because in the end, architecture is about relationships -- between people, between communities, and between generations.


Modern Love provided a glimpse of why the modern world looks the way it does and how it continues to reflect our culture and its aspirations.


And, it was a lot of fun, too.


Many thanks to the VCA for its support, the Department of Interior Design at VCU for its resources, and Uptown Color for helping with the publicity.
