rural alabama

posted December 9, 2009

Mockbee is a late great genius concerned with the dignity of rural architecture and rural people.

He made ultra modern green buildings for clients in the deep south,  and took his practice to the logical conclusion by building practically for free.

As we work to envision a modern agrarian aethetic for the and a vernacular of retrofit– we would do well to observe and study his genius. If you, reader, know of other great examples for us to highlight, please email Anne: anne.dailey@gmail.com
