“Cape Modern: An Expert’s History”
How a Grassroots Organization is Saving Modern Architecture
April 1 @ 6:00pm - 9:00pm
38 Wareham Street, Boston, MA 02118
Lekker Home invites you for a talk with the founding director of the Cape Cod Modern House Trust and author of Cape Cod Modern, Peter McMahon, to trace the restoration and preservation of mid-century modern architecture on the Cape from beginning to present day. Sip and snack your way through the Cape’s architectural history with immersive visuals, an expert’s history, and discover how the rehabilitation of endangered modern houses leads to platforms for new creative work. We’ll have exclusive copies of Cape Cod Modern for the night, a variety of coastal bites and an assortment of bubbly.
The Cape Cod Modern House Trust was founded in 2007 as a grassroots organization with the mission of preventing the demolition of the outer Cape’s significant modern houses, as well as to collect and archive the history of Cape Cod Architecture. We recently took part in an interior collaboration of 3 Wellfleet homes with CCMHT and Canadian furniture brand, Gus* Modern.
