Becoming Philip Johnson - Lecture Online
Hats off to Terence Riley, one of our keynote speakers, who fell victim to bad weather conditions yet still delivered his fascinating lecture remotely from Miami. Riley's lively account of the young Philip Johnson explains how he came to play such an important role in Modern American architecture. The talk sets the stage for one of our two conference themes: Philip Johnson and the Harvard Five. Now you can hear it online. 
Multiple Modernisms in Latin America - Lecture Online
Our other keynote speaker, Jorge Francisco Liernur, introduced the conference's second theme: Iconic Houses in Latin America. His engaging, erudite, and very visual presentation - now online - is a whistle-stop tour of the diversity of Modernism in Latin America, where the originally European style blends with local traditions in a rich variety of ways - complete with cactus fences, lush tropical forests, and an unprecedented use of bold colour.

Welcome Frelinghuysen Morris House & Studio !
A new artists' home and studio is joining the network! Painters Suzy Frelinghuysen and George L.K. Morris, were founding members of the American Abstract Artists. They also collected the 20th century’s greatest abstract art, including works by Picasso, Gris, Matisse and Leger. Their Studio was built first in 1931 based on  Le Corbusier's studio in Paris in which Morris studied with Leger. The House was added later in 1941 after Morris and Frelinghuysen married and incorporated their frescos in the exterior, living room and dining room.
