Midcentury Modernism: The Harvard Five
February 20, 2019
Midcentury residential architecture was shaped by architects at the forefront of the Modern Movement in the US, many of whom studied at Harvard and were among the first to design Modern homes on the East coast. William Earls, author of The Harvard Five in New Canaan, will share the highlights, controversies, and lasting impact of five architects—Marcel Breuer (1902–1981), Landis Gores (1919–1991), John Johansen (1916–2012), Philip Johnson (1906–2005), and Eliot Noyes (1910–1977)—whose designs, ideas, philosophies, and interactions influenced residential housing for generations. Presented by the New Haven Preservation Trust.
