The tour will examine regional trends in modernism and the impact of the productive network of Connecticut-based architects. Highlights include exclusive interior tours of the Rouse residence, designed by King-lui Wu, and Congregation Mishkan Israel, designed by Fritz Nathan. Other properties will be added as access allows.
