The "Demolition" Sign in Front of Philip Johnson's Alice Ball House in New Canaan
[Read 'Modern,' our new modern house blog, here.]
As I said yesterday, presumably this is a public notice announcing that the owner has applied for a demolition permit. Generally the local government requires such notices to be posted and also requires the owner/applicant to do so. In this case it was erected just days after a couple of hundred modern house enthusiasts drove past it numerous times during the New Canaan Historical Society's Modern House Day tour.
