    Twenty Summers – Revisiting ‘Directions in 20th Century Architecture’
    Date: 2024-06-09     Time: 6 PM : 0 minutes

    Season Eleven Twenty Summers, rooted in Provincetown’s Hawthorne Barn, celebrates artistic freedom, offering resources, residencies, and a platform for originality and innovation, honoring its rich legacy.

    On August 18th, 1949, Forum 49 hosted a panel discussion called ‘Directions in 20th Century Architecture’ featuring architect Marcel Breuer, the artist and filmmaker György Kepes, and architect and journalist, Peter Blake, who was then curator for Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art.

    All three speakers were engaged in the then-raging debate about whether modern houses should use the materials and methods of vernacular, regional architecture, or employ universal, standardized, machine-made components.
