Beginning in the late 1930s, a group of visionary architects congregated on the isolated backshore of Wellfleet and Truro. In conjunction with the exhibition Marcel Breuer, this lecture by Peter McMahon explores the Modernist legacy of the Outer Cape, along with efforts to document and preserve it. McMahon is principal of PM Design and focuses on sustainable modern architecture and restoration of mid 20th-century buildings.
