  • It’s unclear how Diane Arbus came across the New Jersey Christmas party for twins and triplets where she took this photograph. In a 2005 article the sitters, Cathleen and Colleen Wade certainly didn’t recall the encounter with the photographer as being especially unusual. I mistakenly thought she was Joan Baez, Marcella said years later. She was slender and pretty and my father had a Joan Baez album. I thought it was her. ​Phaidon.com/GreatWomenArtists

  • The current owner of Wimbledon House, Adam Sykes, has carried out much-needed renovation work and an extension project. For the work, Adam drew from of a lifetime of experiences with design, chiefly his childhood encounters with modernism at Peter Wormersley’s 1954 Farnley Hey in Yorkshire, his time working in California and his subsequent interior decoration work. The result is a beautifully refined interior that is sympathetic to the original fabric of the building while simultaneously expressing Adam’s individual style.

  • Hello, @themodernhouse here, this time taking you into Wimbledon House, a home completed by architecture duo Peter Foggo and David Thomas in 1969 to a design inspired by Mies van der Rohe. The low-slung structure features concrete supports and a steel frame that frees up the interior spaces, allows for full-span, floor-to-ceiling glazing and connects the interior and exterior spaces. Explore more on @themodernhouse Journal. ​​Phaidon.com/Atlasofmidcenturymodernhouses

  • There’s a rawness and a lack of pretension about Ansty Plum, an honesty, which makes it easy to grasp, says architect Sandra Coppin – one half of practice Coppin Dockray – who bought Antsy Plum via @themodernhouse in 2009. You can read the materials, the structural diagram – everything has a great simplicity about it, and a direct response to the landscape. So, it’s an easy house to ‘get’. “The other thing I find compelling is that your eyes are drawn to the landscape by a simple device of a brick plinth, the long retaining wall and timber roof going from the inside to outside – your eye instantly moves beyond the glazing line. Explore more on @themodernhouse Journal. ​​Phaidon.com/Atlasofmidcenturymodernhouses

  • Hi there, @themodernhouse here, a design-led estate agency selling beautiful living spaces across the UK. This weekend we’ll be taking you on a journey into two homes we’ve been involved with that feature in Phaidon’s Atlas of Mid-Century Modern Houses by Dominic Bradbury  First up is Antsy Plum, a 1960s modernist house in Wiltshire designed by David Levitt for Roger Rigby of Arup Associates. Viewed from outside, the house appears at once arresting and harmonious against its woodland context, as if an ancient part of its landscape. Its dramatic mono-pitched roof follows the angle of the site and draws inspiration from the sloping roofs of Provençal vernacular architecture. Explore more on @themodernhouse Journal. ​​Phaidon.com/Atlasofmidcenturymodernhouses

  • My wife’s mobile phone rings. It is Cattelan, calling from his bicycle to say that he’s three minutes away. Three minutes later, he glides to a soundless stop beside us. Cattelan is Italian. Tall and lean in his jeans and black T-shirt, he has close-cropped dark hair and a long, quizzical face anchored by an auspicious Roman nose. He wheels his bike into the courtyard, chains it to a stand, and looks around at the architecture. ‘Not bad,’ he says, whistling softly.

  • If you want to see what our author @dominic_bradbury meant when he said that the creators of Mid-Century Modern architecture were “building on the lessons of pre-war Modernism in a more playful way,” you could take a trip to the breezy, seaside playground of Sanibel Island. This sandy barrier island, just off Florida’s south-western coast, is where, in 1953, the masterful, Mid-Century architect Paul Rudolph, created the Walker Guest House. Its currently for sale!

Therapeutic. ​The texting stops, shoulders lower and calm sets in. ​They sensitize to the premise behind high-end audio which is to get lost in the music.’ Read the interview ​Phaidon.com/News Phaidon.com/HiFi

  • Raimon Torres was the son of the pioneering Modernist architect Josep Torres Clavé, who died during the Spanish Civil War. In 1961, soon after graduating from architecture school, Torres moved to Ibiza, documenting the island and its buildings as a photographer, with its vernacular fincas serving as a key subject. The first image is his Ses Voltes. See this and other Mid-Century Modern villas around the world in Dominic Bradbury’s Atlas of Mid-Century Modern Houses. ​Phaidon.com/News Phaidon.com/AtlasOfMidCenturyModernHouses
