Arcadia/Suburbia: Architecture on Long Island, 1930 - 2010 brings to light the impressive architectural history of Long Island over the past 80 years and underscores the role that Long Island has played in the broader development of Modernism and Post-Modernism in the US. This exhibition charts the region's development from a largely agrarian society with a significant role as a leisure destination to a "mature" suburban culture through an examination of residential architecture ranging from the experimental and economic prototypes of the 1930s and 1940s to highly refined expressions of the Modernist esthetic in the 1950s and 1960s, ending with the more diverse buildings that were designed and built as the Modernist movement fractured in the subsequent decades. The architects included form a pantheon of Modernism and Post-Modernism: Albert Frey and A. Lawrence Kocher, Frank Lloyd Wright, Percival Goodman, Wallace Harrison, Edward Durrell Stone, Marcel Breuer, Jose Lluis Sert, Philip Johnson, John Hejduk, Paul Rudolph, Charles Moore, Robert Venturi, and Res4, among others.
