Guilford, CT

Yes, it's multi-family housing, seriously! It's an apartment complex in Guilford, Conn (condos, but, really, that is just the ownership form of apartments). It was recently featured in the Times and when I had the chance to take a quick look at it, I did!

The most interesting thing to me about these is that they are really a lead brick in (mostly) colonial Guilford. They were designed by Wilfred Armster and built in 1984. It reminds me a lot of the work (architecture, that is) of Bart Prince (protege of Bruce Goff) in many ways, but with a more rugged aspect and slightly more refined construction type and detailing - much more solid appearing.

Here's the link, just for fun.
