DOCOMOMO US Summer Tour: Modern Homes of Litchfield

August 15, 2015

Join DOCOMOMO US on Saturday August 15th for a special full-day tour of Modern homes in Litchfield, Connecticut. This tour offers participants a unique opportunity to visit an exceptional collection of Modern structures designed by architects such as Marcel Breuer and fellow Harvard Five architects, John Johansen, and Eliot Noyes. The tour, which will begin at the Litchfield Historical Society, features four Marcel Breuer-designed homes, including the Stillman House - a recipient of the 2014 Modernism in America Design Citation of Merit. A reception will follow. This tour is a follow up to the “Modernism in Litchfield” tour organized by DOCOMOMO US NY/Tri-State in 2003 to complement the exhibition, “Modern Architecture in Litchfield 1949-1970,” that was on view at the Litchfield Historical Society.
