Abstract:

A dazzling showcase of 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, all of whose work is featured in these pages. Photographer Geoffrey Gross has captured in stunning full-color images these precisely composed structures and their exquisitely appointed interiors, all against the breathtaking variety of the landscapes of New England. Lauded architect and critic Alexander Gorlin places these beautiful houses in their proper historical context as examples of the best of early- and mid-twentieth-century American modernist architecture. --Book Description.
