Abstract

Architect Wallace Harrison and artist and designer Isamu Noguchi collaborated on a modernist home built for William Burden and his wife Margaret during the late 1940s. The house burned in 1998 and was rebuilt by a team of builders and designers led by Boston-area architect Heinrich Hermann. By chance, Hermann photographed the house in detail for a project his wife was researching, just months before it burned. In addition, the Burden's nephew saved the home's original specifications, a director of the insurance company happened to have interned with Harrison, and Harrison's original plans had been donated to Columbia University. With details on the home's history, its owners, and its seven-year, coincidence-filled restoration.
