Latin America in the Spotlight at our May Conference
Iconic Houses in Latin America and Modernism on the East Coast of the US, our two conference themes, are intrinsically connected through the Bauhaus architects who worked in both places, including Gropius who was brought in to teach at Harvard but who also had a partner in Buenos Aires in the 1930s. And Marcel Breuer, one of the Harvard Five, had contacts in Mexico, and so on. Modernism was a global phenomenon. Hear all about it 15-18 May in Norwalk and sign up today!
Welcome Haus Dellacher by Raimund Abraham!
Built between 1965-69 by Raimund Abraham for his childhood friend, photographer Max Dellacher, the Dellacher House is one of the most iconic modern buildings in Austria. In 1971 Abraham moved to New York to stay in the US for the rest of his life. After standing vacant for almost 15 years the Dellacher house was renovated in 2016 and is now open to the public.

Welcome Alan I W Frank House in Pittsburgh!
Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius and one of his youngest and most talented students, Marcel Breuer, designed the Alan I W Frank House. It was the largest and most important residential commission either architect ever had, and the only such work to encompass every detail, including furniture, fabric and fixtures. Remarkably, the home is virtually the same today as when it was built in 1939–40. And it is possible to schedule a visit!
'My house is my refuge': Barragán's House and Studio after the Earthquake
Mexico City-based Catalina Corcuera Cabezut has been director of Casa Luis Barragán since 2001 and will be a speaker at our conference. In our interview with her, she explains how the Barragán Foundation can hopefully add other Barragán houses - should their owners decide to sell them - to the Casa Barragán project, in order to preserve them.
Four Houses of Eclectic Argentine Modernity
Casa in La Falda by Wladimiro Acosta (1940), a Russian Bauhaus architect who came to Argentina in the late 1920s, is one of the houses that architect and preservationist Fabio Grementieri from Buenos Aires will discuss at the conference. The others are Casa Ocampo by Alejandro Bustillo and Victoria Ocampo, Casa del Puente by Amancio Williams, and Casa Curutchet by Le Corbusier.
