Oscar Riera Ojeda, Peter Forbes, Wayne Fuji'i. Desert Island toward the Atlantic Ocean, the Seal Harbor House was designed by American architect Peter Forbes. It takes its shape from the island's striking, yet fragile landscape. A core of structural steel rises 40 feet to the apex of the clerestory, forming a strong, flexible spine meant to withstand the severe winds that frequently batter the site.

I actually have worked for Peter Forbes as a freelance architectural photographer. And yes, some of his projects in this excellent book are displayed via my photographs. If I wanted a house done, I would definitely talk to Peter.

This is a terrific book with terrific material to present. It is part of a wonderful series. The organization, text, photos, and drawings are all excellent. More authors/publishers should learn to present architecture this well. It's a book I study often for inspiration as Forbes' work is very elegant and spare: qualities more architects should aspire to incorporate into their work, rather than the stylistic faddish gestures all too common today. This is a favorite book in my library.

This is perhaps the best value in pictorial architecture books. For under $20., this book has great photos, straightforeward text, clearly reproduced drawings (including construction details!!), all superbly graphically designed. Even if the architecture doesn't appeal to you, the overall presentation of it in this book will. If you do like the architecture (which I think is a beautiful modern adaption of conventional New England vernacular), then this book is a must-have. You won't find this quality in books two or three times the cost!!

The careful photographs compliment the equally fine details in the buildings of this excellent architect. After a year, I'm still looking at it often.
