Book Description:
Salmela Architect provides an in-depth look at one of
America's leading "critical regionalist" architects.
Salmela's buildings resolve a central question of our
time: how to balance the various extreme positions that
characterize contemporary architecture and culture.
Salmela accomplishes this by juxtaposing opposites:
modernist and traditional forms, open and cellular plans,
large and small scales, familiar elements used in
unfamiliar ways. His projects range from a small
stand-alone sauna to commercial spaces visited by thousands
of people, and his buildings, mostly situated
in the upper Midwest, have become nationally and
internationally known. Salmela Architect showcases
twenty-six completed buildings and sixteen current
projects in lavish color photographs and architectural
drawings, enabling readers to get a full sense of the
practicality, ethnicity, and playfulness apparent in
David Salmela's work. Architecture critic Thomas Fisher
explores Salmela's propensity to draw from regional roots
as he creates designs particular to individual places and
cultures yet with universal appeal. Fisher illuminates this
synchronicity with projects as prominent as the Gooseberry
Falls Visitors Center and Wild Rice Restaurant as well as
residential projects including the acclaimed Jackson Meadow
community and photographer Jim Brandenburg's Ravenwood Studio.
