About this product
- DescriptionEven though it s bold, it doesn t shout at you, David Salmela says of the silvery house he designed for a woodsy setting in Deephaven, Minnesota. It s t a barking dog. It s a resting, very gentle animal. The American Institute of Architects, conferring its 2008 Housing Award, was more direct: the house was, in the words of the jury, brilliantly designed. The Streeter house is just one of fifty-one table projects by Minnesota architect Salmela featured in The Invisible Element of Place. Thomas Fisher explores both the beauty and the practicality of Salmela s award-winning designs and offers insight into how an architectural firm as small and remote as Salmela s has been able to produce such consistently remarkable and internationally recognized results. Profiling such building projects as Jackson Meadow, a conservation community that has become a nationwide model; the Hawks Boot Factory, Zamzow house, and Bagley Nature Pavilion, which emphasize green building, solar power, and the use of natural light; and the Chrismer, Koch, Fiore, Roland, Ramberg, and Grams cabins, meshing clients particular needs and the land s peculiar constraints, this book provides a rare vision of architectural design. Gorgeous images from one of the nation s most unique architectural photographers showcase how Salmela s designs work in concert with individual wishes, environmental concerns, and artistic understanding, and his breathtaking buildings reflect the Midwest s culture, history, and, ideally, its future.
