Michael G. Imber Ranches, Villas and Houses.
IMBER. Dowling, Elizabeth Meredith and Marc Appleton.
Michael G. Imber Ranches, Villas and Houses.
The first monograph of the stunning residences designed by a contemporary master of traditional architecture. A must-have for lovers of traditional or southwestern-inspired residential design, Michael G. Imber: Ranches, Villas, and Houses reveals the beauty of building from the rich architectural traditions of the desert southwest and Mexico. A master of traditional forms derived from these regions, particularly of his native Texas, Michael G. Imber begins each of his designs by considering the land through watercolors and then develops his ideas in relation to climate and local historical references. The result is an array of ranches and houses that evokes the rural building traditions of the west, that is unafraid of the delights of classical ornamentation, and that is nonetheless wholly modern in its execution. Here, in the first monograph devoted to the architect's work, is a collection of masterful residential projects ranging in scale from bungalows to sprawling ranches, all presented in large-format photographs and accompanied by Imber's extraordinary watercolor studies.
