Designers of the Modern Movement

These are just a few of the many architects, planners, artists and other design professionals who introduced and popularized new building and urban landscaping forms during the Modern Movement. (We know the list is short - we're still building it out to include a diverse selection of contributors.)

If you know of someone who should be recognized as a contributor to the Modern tradition who practiced in the Chicago area, please contact us at along with any materials or copyright free images.
