BUILT ON NARROW LAND elegantly looks at a moment in Cape Cod's history when a group of bohemian designers were inspired to build houses that married principles of the Bauhaus to the centuries-old local architecture of seaside New England. Then in 1959, with the establishment of the Cape Cod National Seashore, the fate of these Wellfleet houses suddenly hung in the balance.
