"The work of Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects Builders reflects the special qualities of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket." "Architecture of the Cape God Summer presents more than ten years of evocative design and well-crafted construction that is rooted in this tabled place. In an architectural world increasingly polarized between strict revivalist classicism and "avant-grade" abstraction, the work of Polhemus Savery DaSilva displays a compelling third way.
" "The book features twenty-five projects that range from modest to elaborate. Each is an individual creation tailored to its specific location and client. Several additional projects are depicted in a chronology of the firm's major work. Drawings by the firm and more that four hundred color photography by leading architectural photographers illustrate this sixth volume of the New Classicists series."--BOOK JACKET.
