'FOLK' HOUSE - FORMS AS INSPIRATION (Essence)
In an age of electronic hyperbole and information overload the 'folk' forms found in the handmade houses and barns of the south seem to possess a clear and halting essence. The plain houses and "work" building of the American South are simple, direct and beautiful. Every region of the world possesses these "native" structures. Their powerful ideas are found in all later elite forms of architecture. It is their essence that gives rise to the modern house I call New Native.
