Saving Modernism in the Hamptons
$15 (1 hr)
From the nineteen-sixties through the late eighties, some of America’s most renowned architects, including Charles Gwathmy, Andrew Geller, Bruce Nagel, Gordon Bunshaft, Myron Goldfinger, Norman Jaffe, Horace Gifford, Richard Meier, Philip Johnson and many more, designed astonishing modernist homes built in the East End communities of Long Island, New York.
Today, these iconic residences, stunning examples of the modern beach vernacular, are threatened as property values in the Hamptons and other East End beach towns have skyrocketed. Several have been bought and demolished, and others are on the market and facing a similar fate, even before they have a chance to grow old.
Timothy Godbold, an interior designer based in Southampton, became a Hamptons preservationist after learning that so many of these historically relevant modernist houses have been torn down. He is the founder and the director of Hamptons 20th Century Modern, which is working to bring greater recognition to these homes and their designers, to better honor their place in history, and to secure their legacy. He shares his knowledge, images, and some inside information about these beautiful homes. www.hamptons20centurymodern.org
