A continuation of Lloyd Kahn's journeys into the creative processes of owner-built homes ? their innovative techniques, use of sustainable materials, and essential dedication to the natural elements surrounding their designs ? Builders of the Pacific Coast explores the aesthetics and skills of three master builders in California, Washington state, and the rugged terrain of British Columbia. The three featured craftsmen ? Lloyd House, Bruce Atkey, and Sun Ray Kelley ? combine imaginative architecture with innovative contexts: everything from unusual house-boats to sculptural dwellings made of driftwood are included. With stunning color and black-and-white photographs, as well as detailed black-and-white drawings of the homes, this collection of unique and progressive designs creates a template for a future filled with forward-thinking architecture.
