Goodman was a visionary architect who left an enduring mark on American architecture. Goodman’s architectural style was heavily influenced by the modernist movement, which was gaining momentum in Europe during his formative years. He drew inspiration from European modernists like Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius, as well as the emerging Bauhaus movement. These influences can be seen in his commitment to simplicity, functionality, and a rejection of unnecessary ornamentation.
