Thanks to the good works of Kenneth Frampton, Juhani Pallasmaa, and Glenn Murcutt, architects now feel empowered to think locally. In fact, building designers who tap local traditions, materials, crafts, and contexts have revitalized the entire discipline in much the same way that the local food movement transformed our food culture. Brian MacKay-Lyons' Local Architecture demonstrates the imaginativeness and diversity of regionalist aesthetics; from timber wilderness in the Pacific Northwest to main street structures in New England. Editor's recommendation.
