Rate this:
David Hovey is building some of the best modernist houses in the world, and the world is starting to notice. Hovey has made a name for himself as the torchbearer for modern residential design, a designation he shares with a growing number of architects who've returned to pure modernism. His houses merge into the landscapes in which they're situated, and with names like Cloud Chaser and Rain Maker, their ties to the land and climate are made clear. Hovey picks up where Frank Lloyd Wright left off, forging ahead with explorations of simple materials, rectilinear geometries, and structural innovation all in the service of free-flowing floor plans that merge indoor and outdoor into a cohesive whole. An extensive essay examines Hovey's unorthodox approach to architecture and explains how he has managed to build a successful career by staying true to his modernist ideals.
