CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Each year the pristine beaches, lush pine forests, and picturesque New England
towns of Martha's Vineyard draw tens of thousands of admirers to one of our
country's most beautiful islands. Some of these visitors have become part-time
residents, building contemporary homes alongside the traditional Victorian
cottages, sea captains' mansions, and colonial farmhouses that comprise the
island's cultural and architectural heritage. Rarely does one find such a
concentration of outstanding contemporary designs.
This beautifully designed volume presents twenty-four Vineyard homes, built
in the past twenty years, by internationally renowned architects, among them
Robert A. M. Stern, Steven Holl, and the Polshek Partnership. Glorious color
photographs, detailed architectural plans, and project descriptions document
the challenges and solutions reached by each architectural firm. Complementing
the visual material is an introductory essay by architect Keith Moskow, which
sets the historical and architectural context for these gracious new homes.
