*Rural Modern is beautifully presented with stunning photography*Showcasing projects by architects such as Min Day, Carter Burton, Distinctive Architecture, Turnbull, Griffin, and Haesloop, and Olson Kundig*Chapters include background on each architect accompanied by detailed information about each project The latest from leading architectural photographer and writer, Russell Abraham, Rural Modern presents a tantalizing selection of modern country houses in a variety of styles and forms. The 21st century has seen rural residential architecture take ideas from both the Modern Bauhaus design movement and the ever-popular Shingle Style. The result is a style that borrows from vernacular forms and materials, but uses them in new ways. Issues of sustainability and energy conservation are also key to contemporary country house design. Orienting windows to capture heat in winter, but protect the house from the sun in summer is an ongoing design objective. The modern country house is a hybrid of several ingenious ideas blended together to create a modern, sustainable and highly livable architecture that respects the past and looks forward into the future.
