Hawaiian Modern PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Hawaiian Modern free pdf Vladimir Ossipoff (1907-1998), known as the "master of Hawaiian architecture," was at the forefront of the postwar phenomenon known as tropical modernism. Although he practiced at a time of rapid growth and social change in Hawaii, Ossipoff criticized large-scale development and advocated environmentally sensitive designs, developing a distinctive form of architecture appropriate to the lush topography, microclimates, and vernacular traditions of the Hawaiian islands. This stunning book, now available for the first time in paperback, surveys Ossipoff's buildings, which demonstrate a striking interplay of indoor and outdoor space, as well as a vibrant and glamorous architectural style that has proven delightfully particular to its place and durable over time.
