Tomorrow’s Houses: New England Modernism

The Schenectady County Historical Society will host photographer Geoffrey Gross as he discusses his latest book, which features hidden jewels by the masters of twentieth-century modernist architecture in New England.

Tomorrow’s Houses is a richly photographed presentation of the best modernist houses in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont, built during the early twentieth century through the 1960s.

From the suburbs of Connecticut to the mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont, modernism in America found some of its earliest, most idealistic, and, later, most refined realizations in houses designed by such masters as Frank Lloyd Wright, Philip Johnson, Mies van der Rohe, Richard Meier, Paul Rudolph, Marcel Breuer, and Walter Gropius.

The program will be held this Sunday November 4, 2012 at 1:00 PM at the Schenectady County Historical Society’s George E. Franchere Center at the Mabee Farm Historic Site. The Schenectady County Historical is located at 1100 Main St. Rotterdam Junction, NY 12150. The Education Center is wheelchair accessible and does have off-street parking. This program is free to Society members, $5 for non-members.
