Third Triennale of Bologna: The Other Modern 1900–2000

The Third Triennale of Bologna took place from March 9 to May 12, 2000. The exhibition, curated by Jean-Francois Lejeune, Michael Lykoudis (University of Notre Dame) and Gabriele Tagliaventi (Universita di Ferrara), was titled “L ’Altra Modernita 1900–2000” (The Other Modern 1900–2000). With more than 300 objects, it presented a revisionist history of 20th century urbanism and architecture that emphasized continuity rather than avant-garde ruptures, the continuation and restoration of the historic cities rather than the new city of isolated high-rises, and architecture and urbanism based upon modern interpretations of vernacular buildings and urban spaces rather than that emanating from the modernist conceptions of the machine and technology. Nine models and a dozen drawings produced by students of the University of Miami in courses taught by Jean-Francois Lejeune and Francis Lyn during the academic years 1998–1999 and 1999–2000 were part of the exhibit. The three-day conference that accompanied the opening of the exhibition included presentations by School faculty Lejeune, Lyn, Jorge Hernandez and Nicholas Patricios.
