Dana Robbat, President of the Friends of Modern Architecture/Lincoln (FoMA), author, and architectural historian, will present “As the Twig Is Bent, So Goes the Tree … A Shared Philosophy: New England Transcendentalism and European Modernism.” The presentation and slideshow will highlight the age-old social ideals of New England’s Puritan and Transcendental philosophical heritage that provided fertile ground for the arrival of the philosophically-aligned European Modernists who arrived at Harvard and MIT in the late 1930s and subsequently had a profound effect on Lincoln’s built and natural environments. Dana will discuss highlights from her work Plain Living, High Thinking: Social Idealists and their Transcendental Architecture and the historical arc of Modernism in Lincoln. The Lincoln Historical Society will hold its brief annual meeting in advance of the presentation.
