Summary
  • "Winner of the 2004 AIA Firm of the Year Award, Lake/Flato has been designing practical buildings since 1984. These are buildings whose ingenuity and craftsmanship merge tradition with new technologies. Their work seeks a modern vernacular yet builds upon the traditions of regional architecture by adapting local materials and craft to build well-sited structures that recognize the need for comfort and a strong connection to nature. As William Turnbull wrote in his foreword for Lake/Flato's 1996 monograph, "nothing sensual or exotic, no visual fireworks of fashion, just architecture that intrigues the mind, delights the soul, and refreshes the eye with its elegant detail and simplicity"."--Publisher's website
  • "Lake Flato has produced an extraordinary range of buildings and landscapes that respond to local climates and ecologies, that use local materials and products, and that refer to local traditions and forms. Through their sensitive re-interpretations of the places in which they build, Lake Flato has designed structures that seem inseparable from their prairie, desert, bayou, and mountain sites. At the same time, the work has universal appeal as an example of truly sustainable architecture, low in its resource use and well-loved by its users."--Jacket
