Homes and buildings in Vermont aren't often thought of as "Modern" with a capital "M."  Most of our structures tend to veer toward the more quaint and old-fashioned.  And without a strong corporate presence in many areas of the state, the large, modern structures found in many cities, aren't found in Vermont.  But in recent years, Vermont has evolved, and become a hot bed of a new, regional style of modernism that focuses on sustainability and a sense of scale and place.  We learn more with architectural historian Glenn Andres, and architect John McLeod.

Also, we talk with Rutland Herald reporter Bruce Edwards about how much money is coming into Vermont from Department of Defense contracts.
