  • Description

A fascinating, lavishly-illustrated account of one of architecture’s best kept secrets - the modern houses of Cape Cod. Led by Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer and other leading lights of the Bauhaus movement.  In the decades after WWII these architects designed and built themselves avant garde summer houses in the woods and dunes of the Cape. Their homes were places to experiment and work through their ideas and resulted in a body of work unlike any other - a regional modernism incorporating the building traditions of Cape Cod fishing towns.

"An eye-opening history of an overlooked moment in modern architecture."

    — Dana Jennings, New York Times
