Abstract

“Paradigm of Living” explores domestic design as a vehicle for experimentation and expression. Since World War II, every major architectural movement has made a mark on the East End of Long Island from the International Style and Post-Modernism to Regionalism and Deconstructivism. The architect’s ability to engage the natural setting, accommodate leisure, cultivate privacy and community, investigate new materials, foster personal expression, and assimilate avant-garde impulses and the influx of ideas from New York City, gives one a framework for understanding the ever-morphing and progressing architecture of the Hamptons.
