The Place of Houses

The Place of Houses is a lovely book co-written by Charles Moore, Gerald Allen and Donlyn Lyndon.  It is a book about imagining homes, the place of houses is a home – comfortable and unique to the ones who live there.  Here is a great quote worth sharing:

A good house is a created thing made of many parts economically and meaningfully assembled. It speaks not just of the materials from which it is made but of the intangible rhythms, spirits, and dreams of peoples lives.  Its site is only a tiny piece of the real world, yet this place is made to seem like an entire world. In its parts it accommodates important human activities, yet in sum it expresses an attitude toward life.

It is a privilege to be involved in peoples lives in this intimate creation of space.
