- Part 3: Taking an Architectural Tour of Harvard Square
Bob explores Harvard Square with architectural historian Brian Pfeiffer, vice president of Building Conservation for the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities. Pfeiffer highlights three centuries of architecture in Cambridge, MA, from the 1700s to the 20th century.
This project centers around the remodel of Bob Vila's own gracious Shingle Style home in Cambridge, MA. It's a house with a lot of history and beautiful architectural details, many of which were obliterated in remodels of the 50s and the 70s. On the centennial of the house's construction, Bob gets together the best talents in the business to recreate and renew it to its former glory, making some important modifications along the way that will transform this into a dream house for today.
