American Dream: The Houses at Sagaponac : Modern Living in the Hamptons
"American Dream documents the Houses at Sagaponac, a groundbreaking architecture project initiated by real estate developer Harry J. Brown. The project features homes designed by internationally recognized architects on a 100-acre site near the tip of Long Island. The region has nurtured modern housing in previous decades, and the weekend homes and artist studios of the 1960s and 1970s serve as early precursors to the project. Additional sources of inspiration for the Sagaponac houses include the Case Study Houses in California commissioned by Arts + Architecture magazine in the 1950s and the famed 1927 Weissenhof Seidlung experimental housing in Stuttgart, Germany." "Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier is creative advisor to the initiative and is also designing one of the houses. Meier collaborated with Brown on architect selection, bringing together well-known figures like Michael Graves, Philip Johnson, and Richard Rogers with acclaimed younger practitioners, including Gisue and Mojgan Hariri, Jesse Reiser and Nanako Umemoto, Lindy Roy, and Deborah Berke." "The designs of all the Sagaponac Houses are illustrated in full-color and are accompanied by floor plans, architectural drawings, and computer renderings."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
