The Shingle Style Today: Or, the Historian's Revenge Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Shingle Style embodied intellectual pluralism and cultural democracy--ideals fundamental to American belief and developed quickly and richly. After a period of reaction against the Shingle Style, it was revitalized, finding its first fully renewed expression in 1959 in a design for a beach house by Robert Venturi. Vincent Scully details this reemergence, revealing the complex and crucial role of influence in the shaping of this movement.

Synopsis:

Distinguished by long, sloping gables, horizontal lines, and a continuous shingle covering on the exterior, the Shingle Style's essential objective was the creation of expanding, flowing space.

Synopsis:

Scully explores the influence of the Shingle Style of the 1880s on a number of architects in this insightful study of a characteristically American architectural style.
