CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The work of Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects Builders reflects the special
qualities of Cape Cod, Martha?s Vineyard and Nantucket. This is a region of
stunning landscapes and water views, crisp ocean-reflected light, classic
villages, and abundant opportunities for playful living. Architecture of the
Cape Cod Summer presents more than ten years of evocative design and well
crafted construction that is rooted in this fabled place. In an architectural
world increasingly polarized between strict revivalist classicism and
?avant-garde? abstraction, the work of Polhemus Savery DaSilva displays a
compelling third way. The book features twenty-five projects that range from
modest to elaborate. Each is an individual creation tailored to its specific
location and client. Several additional projects are depicted in a chronology
of the firm?s major work. The volume contains an eloquent introduction and text
by Michael J. Crosbie, as well as forewords by renowned architects Cesar Pelli
and Robert Venturi. An essay by John R. DaSilva, Design Partner, describes the
firm?s approach and revisits the genesis of the Shingle Style that is so
influential in residential architecture today. Drawings by the firm and more
than four hundred color photographs by leading architectural photographers
illustrate this sixth volume of the New Classicists series.
