From the Publisher:


One hundred miles north of San Francisco, the Sonoma
County coast meets the Pacific Ocean in a magnificent display of nature. This is
the location of the Sea Ranch, an area covering several thousand acres of large,
open meadows and forested natural settings and interspersed with award-winning
architecture. The ecologically inspired plan drawn up for the Sea Ranch in the
mid-1960s caused a quiet revolution in architecture. Renowned landscape designer
Lawrence Halprin's master plan incorporated a set of building guidelines that
structured the visual, as well as physical, impact upon the landscape.
Subsequent buildings by architects such as Joseph Esherick, Charles Willard
Moore, Donlyn Lyndon, and William Turnbull have been recognized worldwide for
their remarkable environmental sensitivity. This revised and updated edition of
the now-classic monograph, the only one on the Sea Ranch, contains eleven
additional projects and an updated account of the ongoing development process
and land-management issues.
