“Iconic architectural photography disseminated global Modernism and canonized utopic design principles, shaping internationalism while erasing local cultural practices. The carefully composed advertising-ready image was instrumental to the new message; the Image folded snuggly within the Age of Mechanical Reproduction, expanding the Factory to employ a complex hierarchy of production from top to bottom, from design to delivery. Internationalism was (is) an aesthetic that flowed through and replaced place. This aesthetic is still dominant while peripheral nodes of resistance emerge.”
