Overview

A bold new entry into the sometimes dreary world of real estate subdivisions is turning heads. American Dream is an unprecedented initiative bringing together thirty-eight internationally renowned architects to design affordable homes that also push the envelope of contemporary design.

The one-of-a-kind project developed by architect Richard Meier and funded by real estate mogul Harry J. Brown, Jr., could serve as a model for future projects that join the high-design world of contemporary architecture with the mass appeal of suburban housing. Among the internationally renowned modernist architects assembled by Meier are Philip Johnson, Michael Graves, Zaha Hadid, Steven Holl, Eric Owen Moss, and Richard Rogers. The modern houses at Sagaponac stand in stark contrast to the oversized and gaudy McMansions that have become ubiquitous features of suburban America.

American Dream: The Houses at Sagaponac introduces readers to a fascinating and successful project that seems destined to expand the possibilities of affordable, modern home design. The reservation list is growing.
