West Coast Residential: The Modern and the Contemporary
West Coast Residential demonstrates how modernist traditions are being integrated into contemporary design. It also explains what were the defining features of the West Coast mid-century vernacular and asks whether it still exists today. Featured residences include the Battersby/Howat Gulf Island residence on Mayne Island, British Columbia; the Eggleston/Farkas 2001 Mathieson House in Seattle; John Yeon's 1939 Jorgensen House in Portland, Oregon; Stanley Saitowitz's 1990 Di Napoli Residence in Los Gatos, California; and Barton Myers' 1999 Barton Myers House and Studio in Montecito, California. This celebration of design is a must for art, architecture, and university bookstores, as well as museum shops.
