Circle Square Triangle: The Architecture of Myron Goldfinger

On view through 12/31/23
Circle Square Triangle: The architecture of Myron Goldfinger

The work of Myron Goldfinger (1933-2023), called the master of volume architecture, is on display in the Susan Bishop Gallery through December 31. A student of Louis Kahn at the University of Pennsylvania, author of Villages in the Sun, among others, and architect of houses around the world, this is the first major exhibition of Myron’s work and includes original drawings and house models. Pictured above is Cove Castle, Goldfinger’s resort in Anguilla.

As Myron wrote:

“If architecture is to be meaningful, it must fulfill the basic needs for human habitation and do more. The interiors must stimulate the Spirit. And the exteriors must have an ennoble sculptural presence. Architecture transcends building. Architecture is Art.”

The exhibition is curated by designer June Goldfinger, his wife and collaborator, and gallery owner Mitchell Algus.

A panel discussion with architect Mark Markiewicz and Randy Kennedy, moderated by Bob Nickas and Mitchell Algus, will take place November 4 @ 3 pm. The Museum will open at 2:00 for viewing the exhibition beforehand.


We are excited to announce that construction on the Jim and Dede Bartlett Center for New Canaan History is underway! Events will occur as scheduled, but because of the logistical challenges in the main building, the portrait exhibition is available by appointment only. Please contact
