This issue of a+u examines the work of nine Modern architects who designed residences in New Canaan, Connecticut, between the years 1947-1979. Described by guest editor—and participant—Alan Goldberg as a time in which anything seemed possible, the context established in Mid-century Modern Houses in New Canaan re-frames some of last century's avant-garde as inspiration for problem-solving in the "spirit of the times."
