New Canaan, CT is known for its landmark homes, a feature that began when the Harvard Five built houses in this small New England town. Who are the Harvard Five? An instructor and students who came from the first American architectural school employing the Bauhaus method.
The book offers a visual tour of 36 homes built between 1947-1966. Glossy photos are paired with a layout and text description.
