MoMA Releases First Storybook: “Young Frank, Architect”

Cover of Young Frank, Architect, published by The Museum of Modern Art

Inspiring builders of all ages, has released their first storybook, following the adventures of a young, architect and his architect grandfather: Young Frank and Old Frank. The creative pair – with matching bow ties, straw boater hats and, of course, Le Corbusier-inspired glasses – optimistically views the world as an endless supply of inspiration and possibilities. Everything, from macaroni to old boxes, inspires them to create – especially after discovering the works of Frank Gehry and Frank Lloyd Wright at The Museum of Modern Art. Young Frank, Architect was written by the renowned children’s author and illustrator Frank Viva. More information can be found here on MoMA.

    Just what we need, more white male architects.

      Just what we need, more sour talentless people who feel they should be rewarded by the color of their skin or their sex.

        I’d wager money that you believe male architects aren’t rewarded for their skin color and sex, Eric.

    Great concept but not feeling the vibe with the illustrations. There is not enough, how do you say effort in the creation.
