“A survey of architect Horace Gifford’s remarkable series of beach houses that transformed the terrain and culture of New York’s Fire Island in the 1960s.”
Growing up on the beaches of Florida, Gifford forged a deep bond with coastal landscapes. Pairing this sensitivity with jazzy improvisations on modernist themes, he perfected a sustainable modernism in cedar and glass that was as attuned to natural landscapes as to our animal natures. Gifford’s serene 1960s pavilions provided refuge from a hostile world, while his exuberant post-Stonewall, pre-AIDS masterpieces orchestrated bacchanals of liberation.

Blending cultural and architectural history, Fire Island Modernist ponders a fascinating era through an overlooked architect whose life, work and colorful milieu trace the operatic arc of a lost generation, and still resonate with artistic and historical import. 204 pages/140 color/100 black and white.
