Re Harry Bertoia:
Whaddaya mean, 1930 was not a good time to move to Detroit? That’s the year I moved there from Battle Creek!
And my favorite Bertoia project was the interiors he designed in 1956 for the new main terminal at Lambert Field, St. Louis for architect Minoru Yamasaki, another Detroiter.
Alas, I understand it has been “improved” by a brutal modernization.
