Iconic Houses Conference (2018)

Welcome

The Iconic Houses Network is proud to present its 5th International Conference from 15-18 May 2018 at Dolce Norwalk.

Philip Johnson and the Harvard Five

In the 1940s, a group of five architects from Harvard inspired by the Bauhaus style of architecture settled in New Canaan, CT, where they stirred up an experimental modernist movement in the sleepy New England town. Speakers will offer an insight about the role of architect Philip Johnson and the Harvard Five in the 20th century.

Iconic Houses in Latin America
