The Lincoln Historical Society in collaboration with FoMA  a virtual presentation of
 
As the Twig Is Bent, So Goes the Tree …
A Shared Philosophy: New England
Transcendentalism and European Modernism


By Lincoln resident and FoMA President Dana Robbat 



 

On Saturday, June 12, 2021 Dana Robbat, President of the Friends of Modern Architecture/Lincoln (FoMA), author, and architectural historian, will presented As the Twig Is Bent, So Goes the Tree … A Shared Philosophy: New England Transcendentalism and European Modernism. The presentation and slideshow highlighted 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 discussed 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 held its brief annual meeting in advance of the presentation.
