Sea Ranch, the NEW ED
(50 items available)
Located a hundred miles north of San Francisco, The Sea Ranch is an area covering several thousand acres of large, open meadows and forested natural settings interspersed with award-winning architecture. This revised and updated edition of the now-classic monograph is beautifully photographed with maps, plans, detailed descriptions of the houses, and essays by Donald Canty and Lawrence Halprin. The ecologically inspired plan drawn up for The Sea Ranch in the mid-1960s caused a quiet revolution in architecture. Renowned landscape designer Lawrence Halprins master plan incorporated a set of building guidelines that structured the visual as well as physical impact upon the landscape. Subsequent buildings by architects such as Joseph Esherick, Charles Willard Moore, Donlyn Lyndon, and William Turnbull have been recognized worldwide for their remarkable environmental sensitivity. Contains eleven additional projects and an updated account of the ongoing development process and land management issues.
