Henry B. Hoover Architecture Talk

Henry B. Hoover Architecture Talk

March 9, 2017


New Ipswich Library

This illustrated talk tells the story of architect Henry B. Hoover (1902-1989), American-trained, who in the late 1930s began a long career in New England. His “brand” of residential architecture was informed by but different from the normative, Bauhaus-driven idea of modern architecture. Beginning in 1937 with his own house, the first modern house in Lincoln, MA, his practice grew to include clients largely in neighboring New England. But one notable house lies near Mt. Monadnock in Jaffrey, NH, and another amid a thousand-acre preserve in Thomasville, GA. No matter where built, Hoover’s designs exhibited a satisfying synthesis of the exceptional and the livable, always tailored to a particular client and site. The publication Breaking Ground: Henry B. Hoover, New England Modern Architect (University Press of New England, 2015), which examines all aspects of Hoover’s career, will be available for purchase and signing at the talk.
This event is free, but we request that you bring a donation be brought for the St. Vincent-DePaul Food Pantry in Greenville.
