The Tennessee Valley Authority from the Author: Tim Culvahouse. In the wake of the Great Depression, one of President Franklin Roosevelt’s most successful New Deal programs was the formation of the Tennessee Valley Authority, a federal government–owned corporation created in 1933 to revitalize the Tennessee River Valley. This book includes essays by experts in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, graphic design, industrial design, and the fine arts. Featuring new photography by Richard Barnes, The Tennessee Valley Authority interweaves technical, political, aesthetic, and cultural concerns to complete a missing chapter in the study of modern American architecture and design.
