The subject of the previous post—Philip Johnson’s Glass House—may be New Canaan’s most famous modern home, but it is hardly the only one. The Connecticut town is full of fine examples of mid-century modern residential architecture (and more contemporary examples as well). On Saturday, May 14, several of these houses will open for tours as part of a full-day “Seeing Modern” event organized by the New Canaan Historical Society. The tours include buildings designed by Elliot Noyes, Alan Goldberg, Hugh Smallen, Landis Gores, and Specht Harpman. Also on the itinerary is the Glass/Wood House that I wrote about for our April issue, built by John Black Lee in 1956, renovated by Toshiko Mori in the 1990s, and subsequently added onto by Kengo Kuma. (Full disclosure—I’m serving as tour guide for this project.) At $295 each, the tickets aren’t cheap. But the price includes a morning symposium, the tours, continental breakfast, lunch, and an evening cocktail reception. The proceeds help support the society’s preservation program.
