James Evans was born in New York City in 1925 and studied architecture at Yale University under Louis Kahn (1901-1974), where he received a Bachelor of Architecture degree in 1952. By 1961, he had moved to New Canaan, Connecticut, as part of the second generation of Modern architects to establish themselves in the town. Evans designed at least three houses in New Canaan and also designed senior apartments at the New Canaan Inn (1981). His architectural firm, James Evans and Associates, is based out of Stamford, Connecticut.
