fire island modernist: horace gifford and the architecture of seduction

$60.00
serene and provocative. architect, horace gifford's legacy is evident amongst a series of beach houses both modest and innovative in design on new york's fire island. growing up in florida, gifford became intimately familiar with coastal landscapes and utilized classic beach house aesthetics with a modernist twist within his elegant buildings. emphasizing cedar and glass, he focused on sustainable materials to best complement the charm of the boardwalks and the natural beauty of the surrounding environment. through his buildings he helped house the first generation of gay americans who dared to be both visible and proud in the post-stonewall era. this collection explores gifford's life and work through images of the many homes he designed, fire island itself and represents the arc of a lost generation, resonating with artistic and historical importance.
