Peter McMahon, founding director, Cape Cod Modern House Trust

Hear how the indigenous people of the Cape and later European settlers used materials at hand to build practical, flexible structures. Explore the unique new vernacular architecture that followed the arrival of modernist innovators in the 1930s: often high concept and low budget.
