Modern homes and the National Trust for Historic Preservation

The National Trust for Historic Preservation is making moves to protect and preserve Mid Century Modern homes in the New Canaan, CT area. Sparked by the opening of the Philip Johnson Glass House and the demolition of the Paul Rudolph home—both in 2007—the Trust has made a commitment to making Modernism the latest protected architectural movement. By creating the Survey of New Canaan Homes—an online survey of the remaining 91 modern homes in the New Canaan area—steps have been taken to increase awareness of this great movement in architecture.

More information (photos of the houses, details about the architects, and notes about historical significance) can be found here.
