Drawing Toward Home: Designs for Domestic Architecture from Historic New England Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Drawing Toward Home illustrates changes in taste and technology and presents many of the drawings as works of art. It includes designs by both famous and little-known architects and houses designed in the Federal, Victorian, Arts and Crafts, and International styles. From Great Diamond Island, Maine, to Boston's Beacon Street, and from cottages on Cape Cod to mansions in Newport, the houses featured in this book remind us that the architecture of New England is a touchstone of American architecture. Drawing Toward Home is part of a multi-faceted project at Historic New England, including this engaging book, lively public programs, an interactive website, and a traveling exhibit. The Drawing Toward Home exhibit is currently on display at the National Building Museum, Washing-ton, D.C., February 20August 15, 2010. Please visit www.historicnewengland.org for more information and updates on later exhibit venues.
