Join us: Bauhaus Summers on Cape Cod

presented by Peter McMahon

Starting in the late 1930s, in the back woods of Wellfleet, a group of self-taught American designers collaborated with some of Europe’s most influential avant garde architects to create the outer Cape’s unique modern houses. This illustrated presentation will explore this history, as well as current efforts to save a group of important abandoned houses, and to repurpose them as a platform for new creative work.

Peter McMahon is a celebrated author and the founding director of the Cape Cod Modern House Trust, incorporated in 2007 to archive, restore, and celebrate the outer Cape’s outstanding modern architecture and the creative culture that surrounded it.

This event is held in conjunction with the December 13 20th Century Design auction.

Wednesday, December 11
