Availability : 33


This large-format and generously illustrated book captures the visionary approach to the land embraced in designs for The Sea Ranch, the planned community that has become a touchstone of 1960s West Coast modernism.

Situated on a ten-mile stretch of rugged Northern California coastline, The Sea Ranch was conceived by Alfred Boeke as a retreat from urban living with connection to nature as a guiding principle. This striking book examines the development of the site's master plan and iconic early designs through sketches, drawings, and contemporary and archival photographs of its astonishing landscapes and distinctive timber-framed structures. It features the work of architects Lawrence Halprin, Barbara Stauffacher Solomon, Charles Moore, William Turnbull, Donlyn Lyndon, Richard Whitaker, and Joseph Esherick. A collection of essays that consider The Sea Ranch in relation to popular leisure destinations and within the context of the architectural history of California are accompanied by conversations with designers and others associated with the project from its inception. This book showcases the exemplary balance between land stewardship and modernist architecture that has made The Sea Ranch a model for living in harmony with nature.

    Indirect and Direct Signature requirements

    Signature requirements apply to domestic US shipments ONLY

    Orders $70 to $299.99 require an indirect signature.

    This means that if the first delivery attempt is unsuccessful a note will be left at the address given under "Ship To". This note has the option for the customer to sign and the package will be left where specified by customer on the next delivery attempt.

    Orders $300 and more require a direct signature.

    A direct signature is obtained when the package is delivered to the shipping address and a signature is given to the delivery person. The signature cannot be left on a note, delivery notice, or any other method. It must be in person.

    If after the third delivery attempt the necessary signature type has not been obtained, the package will be returned to Destination PSP. In the event a package is returned due to lack of signature, the purchase amount will be refunded, minus the cost for shipping even if order was eligible for free shipping. The shipping cost includes from Destination PSP to the shipping address and from the shipping address back to Destination PSP.

    Example:
    Order subtotal = $100
    Shipping cost = $10 one way (so x 2 for shipping TO you and BACK to us)
    Total refund = $80
