However, Chareau's diverse body of work has received hardly any exposure in the U.S. Thanks to a collaboration between <a href="http://archinect.com/firms/cover/106441/diller-scofidio-renfro" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Diller Scofidio + Renfro</a> and the Jewish Museum in New York City, Chareau's work made its U.S. debut last Friday in the exhibition, &ldquo;Pierre Chareau: Modern Architecture and Design&rdquo;.</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/lf/lf5uh156ltls78e6.jpg"><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/v8/v8z6tgsz6fgywduc.jpg"><em>Pierre Chareau and Bernard Bijvoet, Maison de Verre, 1928-1932.</em></p><p>After Chareau fled Paris from German occupation during World War II, his own designs and his vast art collection were scattered when he sold them, as he tried to rebuild his career in New York.

The book features projects from the last two centuries, sited all throughout the five boroughs, that range from the monumental to the mortifying. Alongside infamous projects like Buckminster Fuller&rsquo;s dome over Manhattan and Frank Lloyd Wright&rsquo;s Key Plan for Ellis Island, visions for an alternate New York-urbanism abound: aborted reflections of their time, place and politics.</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/f5/f5gtcadshqvljzkk.jpg"></p><p>The book continues in the tradition of Goldin and Lubell's 2013 exhibition, "<a href="http://archinect.com/features/article/78446579/the-science-fiction-of-never-built-los-angeles" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Never Built Los Angeles</a>", including focused research on each project alongside gorgeous drawings and visualizations.
