Living Where Land Meets Sea: The Houses of Polhemus Savery DaSilva

Free sample

Living Where Land Meets Sea features 35 homes that showcase 10 years of work inspired by the coast and designed and built by Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects Builders (PSD). This stunning volume also contains the firm’s resort work; selected work in process; an introduction by John Wriedt; text by John R. DaSilva, the firm’s Design Principal; and interpretive poetry written specifically for the book by GennaRose Nethercott. The work of PSD synthesizes ideas from Modernism, the Shingle Style and New England vernacular architecture into unique, playful homes that are carefully crafted for each different site and client. Living Where Land Meets Sea continues the lavishly illustrated and thoughtfully written coverage of PSD’s work that occurs in previous IMAGES titles on the firm, Architecture of the Cape Cod Summer and Shingled Houses in the Summer Sun, and is a wonderful addition to IMAGES’ expanding New Classicists series. PSD’s poetic architecture reflects on the beauty of living by the sea, and this major new monograph beautifully presents that work and the ideas embodied within it.

The value of the art, craft and organizational skill the firm brings to every project has been widely recognized through local, regional and national awards for architectural design, preservation, construction, and business management.

Bruce Snider, Senior Contributing Editor of Custom Home wrote of DaSilva: "An architect so adept in visual and spatial expression... gives up none of his fluency in shifting to the written word. He is one of the few practitioners of his trade to be truly bilingual in this regard." DaSilva is a graduate of Princeton and Yale Universities.

The groundbreaking guide to modern leadership in architectural practice

Leading Collaborative Architectural Practice is the leadership handbook for today's design and construction professionals. Endorsed by the American Institute of Architects, this book describes the collaborative approach to leadership that is becoming increasingly prevalent in modern practice; gone are the days of authoritative "star" architects— today's practice is a brand, and requires the full input of every member of the team. This book builds off of a two-year AIA research project to provide a blueprint for effective leadership: the ability, awareness, and commitment to lead project teams who work together to accomplish the project's goals. Both group and individual hands-on exercises help facilitate implementation, and extensive case studies show how these techniques have helped real-world firms build exemplary success through collaborative teamwork and leadership.

Highly illustrated and accessible, this approach is presented from the practicing architect's point of view—but the universal principles and time-tested methods also provide clear guidance for owners, contractors, engineers, project managers, and students.

Build a culture of collaboration, commitment, and interpersonal awareness Adopt effective leadership techniques at the team, project, or practice level Handle conflict and resolve communication issues using tested approaches Learn how real-world projects use effective leadership to drive success

The last decade has seen a sea-change in architectural leadership. New practices no longer adopt the name and identity of a single person, but create their own identity that represents the collaborative work of the entire group. Shifts in technology and changing workplace norms have made top-down management structures irrelevant, so what does it now mean to lead? Forefront presents effective contemporary leadership in the architectural practice, and real-world guidance on everyday implementation.
