Assouline Announce New Book The Miller House and Garden

| August 23, 2011 | 0 Comments

With its open layout and boundless glass walls, Miller House and Garden epitomizes American modernism—in the unexpected location of south central Indiana, surrounded by honey locust trees and fields of corn.

A quintessential expression of American modernism, Miller House and Garden—created in 1952 by design geniuses Eero Saarinen, Alexander Girard, Dan Kiley, and Kevin Roche—integrates home and landscape in a compelling composition of forms and spaces, honoring historical precedents without forgoing innovation. Part of Assouline’s renowned memoir series, Miller House and Garden shares not only the aspirations of the Miller family but also the spirit of an era.

Bradley C. Brooks is director of historic resources and assistant curator of American decorative arts at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Previously, he served as director of the McFaddin-Ward House in Beaumont, Texas, and as curator, then museum director, at the Moody Mansion and Museum in Galveston, Texas. Miller House and Garden marks Brooks’s first foray into modernism.
