From Federalist Charles Bulfinch to Modernist Benjamin Thompson, innovator Eleanor Raymond to the unsung Peter Banner, Late Colonialist Asher Benjamin to Futurist Bucky Fuller, the architects residing in Mount Auburn have profoundly influenced and enhanced our lives through their significant architectural achievements, influential ideas, and unbounded creativity. Volunteer Docents Carol Harper and Steve Pinkerton will begin the program with a presentation in Story Chapel followed by a tour to celebrate the lives and legacies of these and many other architects who shaped our urban and suburban landscapes and continue to influence design and our environment today.
