The Harvard Five in New Canaan: Mid-Century Modern Houses by Marcel Breuer, Landis Gores, John Johansen, Philip Johnson, Eliot Noyes & Others
William D. Earls
Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company
“The Harvard Five” is the catchphrase for the five architects featured in this book who built houses for themselves and clients in New Canaan, Connecticut. Other architects also contributed significant modern houses that are still astonishing today. The book is a chronological, virtual tour of thirty-five landmark houses built between 1947-1966, with photographs and plans. An essay by Jean Ely recounts the history of the area and how it came to be the locus of the modern movement's experimentation in materials, construction methods, space and form.
