Lessons of Modernism: Learning from New Canaan and the Harvard Five

Frederick Noyes, FAIA is a Boston architect who has served the BAC as an educator, former overseer and member and chair of the board, as well as an honorary doctoral degree recipient.

He returned to the BAC to share his unique window on modernism, drawing from examples of the mid-century modern houses of the so-called Harvard Five in New Canaan CT, as well as others.

His lecture asked: "Modernism distinguishes itself by bringing a new geometric rationale to architectural order. Where does this lead?"
