The first monograph of the stunning residences designed by a contemporary master of traditional architecture. A must-have for lovers of traditional or southwestern-inspired residential design, Michael G. Imber: Ranches, Villas, and Houses reveals the beauty of building from the rich architectural traditions of the desert southwest and Mexico. A master of traditional forms derived from these regions, particularly of his native Texas, Michael G. Imber begins each of his designs by considering the land through watercolors and then develops his ideas in relation to climate and local historical references. The result is an array of ranches and houses that evokes the rural building traditions of the west, that is unafraid of the delights of classical ornamentation, and that is nonetheless wholly modern in its execution. Here, in the first monograph devoted to the architect's work, is a collection of masterful residential projects ranging in scale from bungalows to sprawling ranches, all presented in large-format photographs and accompanied by Imber's extraordinary watercolor studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The book reveals architectural traditions of the desert southwest and Mexico. Imber begins each of his designs by considering the land through watercolors and then develops his ideas in relation to climate and local historical references. The result is an array of ranches and houses that evokes the rural building traditions of the west, unafraid of the delights of classical ornamentation, and wholly modern accents in its execution....all presented in large-format photographs and accompanied by Imber's watercolor studies." Editoratlarge.com

"Michael G., Imber: Ranches, Villas, and Houses offers readers highlights from the architect's award-winning residential designs. The book also digs into Imber's process of creating these classical buildings. He begins every custom house commission with a watercolor study of the landscape where the building will sit. He uses the paintings to explore the colors, light, and textures of the site. These romantic watercolors are featured in the first section of the book and also scattered throughout the pages in conjunction with corresponding projects." Residential Architect
