Woodner, Ian
American, 1903 - 1990
Biography
Woodner was born in New York in 1903, but lived for many years in Minneapolis, where he attended the University of Minnesota graduating with a B.S. degree in architecture in 1924. Thereafter he attended Harvard, where he received a master's degree. As a youth he had visited the museums of the Twin Cities, and as a student drew from the model and plaster casts. Harvard changed his outlook and enlarged it. He spent some time in Europe, returning to work for the Parks Department of New York City. His designs were built for the World's Fair of 1936-1939. After World War II he has worked not only as an architect but also as a real estate developer. Woodner died 1 November 1990.
