Built on Narrow Land MVD7278DDocuments an important period of Modern Architecture through the lens of one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Built on Narrow Land is a film that looks at a moment in Cape Cod when the spirit of European modern architecture inspired a group of bohemian designers — professionals and amateurs both — to build houses that married principles of the Bauhaus to the centuries-old local architecture of seaside New England.

But in 1959, with the establishment of the Cape Cod National Seashore the fate of these houses suddenly hung in the balance.
