In a break from past projects This Old House has chosen a distinctly modern house for its Fall project house.



This Old House has chosen a 1950's modern house in Cambridge Massachusetts as its project house for the fall 2005 segment of the series. From the TOH web site a description:

The Cambridge House The latest This Old House project is unlike any other the show has tackled in its 25 previous seasons. Built in 1950, this modern house is tired, leaking, and the dog on its street...and yet is considered "historic." The question is: what's worth saving?


It is notable that this area of Massachusetts has a concentration of modern homes as a result of the settling of modern architects leaving europe during world war 2. May of these individuals ended up teaching at Harvard and other Boston schools and settled in nearby suburbs building modern houses for themselves and others.
