New Canaan is filled with some of the best examples of Mid-Century Modern architecture. But
that was 60-70 ago and architecture has certainly moved on. Frederick Noyes will discuss why
we keep going back to look at this period, why it was so important—and where we go from here. The lecture is free and open to all.

Frederick Noyes, FAIA, has spent his professional life immersed in his passions of
architecture, biology, and education. He trained at Harvard: an AB in biology (1966), and a
M.Arch from the Graduate School of Design (1972). He was elected to the AIA College of
Fellows (2001) and was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Education from the Boston
Architectural College (BAC) in 2007.
