Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0847829219, Hardcover)With a style that is as subtle as it is elegant, Hugh Newell Jacobsen has designed buildings throughout the United States and abroad, published his work regularly in magazines such as Architectural Digest and Architectural Record, and been commissioned by clients such as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Meryl Streep. Although eclectic in his work, Jacobsen has found most acclaim for his private houses. Infused with a rare sense of clarity and elegance, they are serene and classically proportioned, but at the same time distinctly modern. Drawing inspiration from vernacular architecture, his designs often recall the barns, detached kitchens, and smokehouses of early American architecture. This volume presents the architect's latest endeavors, including houses, university projects, a winery, and more. This third volume of Jacobsen's work is a definitive look at the architect's mature skill and refined taste. An introduction by Paul Goldberger explores Jacobsen's signature style.
