Overview

Shingle Styles celebrates the enduring appeal of a distinctly American architectural form. First emerging in the 1870s for the vacation retreats of the Northeastern elite, the Shingle Style soon migrated across the United States-and it continues to evolve in engaging and provocative ways. In this sumptuous book, illustrated throughout with more than 200 specially commissioned photographs, noted architectural historian Leland Roth examines 30 key Shingle Style structures in all parts of the country. From early examples by McKim, Mead & White, Julia Morgan, and Frank Lloyd Wright to recent reinterpretations by Robert A. M. Stern and Robert Venturi, Shingle Styles brings to life the rich development of this ever- popular vernacular architecture.
