Title: Hawaiian Modern: The Architecture of Vladimir Ossipoff
Description: Yale University Press. 2015, 1st Edition. (ISBN: 0300214162) Hardcover. Book, 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 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. Fine/Fine.
